What’s your superpower and are you using it to help others is a question that recently crossed my mind while I was attending a seminar and it really got me thinking about what my superpower is.
I remember when I was a kid and pretended to be a superhero with my friends and I would say things like I have X-ray vision, or I can leap tall buildings in a single bound like Superman.
But when I turned thirteen I lost my ability to use my imagination, life seemed to become a very serious thing and most of my teenage years were a very emotional rollercoaster ride.
But about five years ago I learned to activate my imagination again and looking back on over 40 years of my life I don’t know why I waited so long. It must have just been the conditioning of our society that demands that we turn off our imagination and grow up.
Think back to when you were a kid, do you remember getting stressed out about how you were going to buy food, where you would live or how you were going to pay this month’s bills? No, you just live life and you did it with a big imagination. If you are someone who has been struggling to get your life back on track again or regain some of that magic you remember having as a kid I’m here to tell you it is possible to regain that magic by reactivating your imagination. By reactivating your imagination you can awaken your superpower and release a huge amount of stress and help a lot of people around you.
As I mentioned earlier five years ago I learned how to imagine what I wanted my life to be like in the next year, in the next two years and even 3 years and I have to tell you it has been a very special journey. I learned how to use my imagination to reduce stress, worry, and fear by ninety percent and realized that my special power is to help people with their computers, TVs, and phones and help them fall in love with technology not be afraid of or get frustrated with it but to understand it and embrace all the benefits it has to offer.
I have had the pleasure of working with technology for over 50 years and the first time I realized It was my superpower was when I was eighteen years old working for a phone company in Burlingame, Ca. I was a warehouseman that ran out of work and started to work on phone systems and solve problems when they arose. But twenty years later I was working sixty hours a week and I was burned out. What was once fun turned in to long days waiting for software to update or finish installing and not know when I could go home.
Is your imagination alive today/ Do you know what your superpower is? Take a moment and close your eyes and imagine if you could be doing anything for work or fun what would it be? When you have that vision in your mind ask yourself if what you love to do can be used to help people?
I believe each person on the planet has been given a gift, a talent that is meant to be shared with the world, we have just forgotten how to believe in ourselves and trust that the desire is the confirmation.
