There’s no one else like you. You have something special that people want in their lives and within their organizations.
You have super powers! You can do things that no one else can.
Your unique combination of skills, experience and “super” talents makes you great. Unfortunately, we all can fall prey to conforming to other’s expectations, trying hard to fit in and not be who we really are.
Is that right?
Is that fair?
In a Modern Family episode, the character Mitch relays valuable wisdom to Manny.
Mitchell: “So, I know you’d never believe this by looking at me right now, but, uh, I used to get picked on at school, too.”
Manny: “So, Jay told you?”
Mitchell: “Yeah, they used to call me weird, too. I was weird… fun but weird.
But this is the funny thing about growing up. For years and years, everybody’s desperately afraid to be different in any way. And then, suddenly, almost overnight, everybody wants to be different….
And that is where we win.”
Mitch is right. It’s okay to be different. Winners are different. And it’s cool to be special. This unique combination of skills, experience and “super” talents makes you great. It’s your brand. It’s your superhero power!
It’s time to unleash the superhero within!
Unleashing your superhero powers begins with identifying your unique gifts and strengths. This doesn’t necessarily include “that you’re a team player.” While that can be great, it’s rote. What are your really, really amazing powers?
What makes you unique?
If you’re trying to be someone other than who you are, that can be exhausting.
Rather, reflect on what you’re doing that everybody wants to watch, learn from, experience first hand and pay big bucks for. Now that’s your super power.
I’m here to help you discover and unleash the amazing superhero within. If you’re ready to win, then let’s get started today.
