Unlocking your superpowers. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you don’t have any superpowers! I believe you do, and they will help you make your dreams a reality. In today’s challenge, I’ll help you unlock your superpowers, even if you never realized you had them.

Day 4 Challenge:

Hopefully, you have discovered at least one or two superpowers that you have. They could even be something that you didn’t know existed until now! I want you to write down what these are and how these superpowers will help you to realize your dream of living the freedom lifestyle.

[KIND] This is something I do well. Whatever I can do to help another, support or encourage another I do it with love and kindness. I want the best for everyone. I want to see others succeed.

Here I come to save the day! Mighty Mouse

[RESOURCEFUL & DETERMINED] In a pinch I can switch gears. Especially at work. Often times at work I am asked to stop work on one project for another higher priority project. I am able to jump into the new project as if I had always been working on it. I am very flexible. I am able to adapt quickly in these types of situations. I am often the go to person. “Lindy I need you to stop working on X and do Y I need it by the end of the day!” My superpowers come in very handy during these situations.

Teen Titans, go! Teen Titans

[TENACIOUS GO-GETTER] I am a fierce go-getter. I do what I need to do. I get it done! No matter what it is I go for it. My dad often says that I have “bulldog tenacity”. I am relentless when on task.  I give it my all every time.

I have the power! He Man

[CONNECTED] I am at my happiest near or on water. love going to the lake and being by the water. There is something so amazing and powerful about the water. The sun is my kryptonite. I am energized by the sun. I feel like the sun gives me super natural powers.

My Spidey-Sense is tingling. Spiderman

[INTUITIVE] I am very intuitive. I can sense things. My mom is amazed at how I am able to do this.  I recently did an only personality test which confirmed this to a great degree.

Avengers assemble! The Avengers

[LEADER] I am able to rally the troops around a project or in my family or circle of friends. Whether it is a work deadline or a family member or friend in need I am able to mobilize the necessary resources.

With great power, comes great responsibility. Spiderman

[RESPONSIBLE] I believe I have a responsibility to use my super powers for good and to always be source of inspiration to others.

[SKILLED] In my work I am the best at what I do. I leave no detail out. I am meticulous. I pride myself on producing the best quality work I can at all times.

Wonder Twin Powers Activate. Wonder Twins

[POWERFUL] When I am activated or on fire about something there is no stopping me. I go all in. I give my all. I feel unstoppable. This is really an amazing feeling. When I am in the zone of my genius it is unbelievable the kind of work I am able to produce.

Life does not give us purpose. We give life purpose. The Flash

[PURPOSE-DRIVEN] Every thing I do is to give purpose and to serve others.  This is why I am here.

You only have your thoughts and dreams ahead of you. You are someone. You mean something. Batman

[INTROSPECTIVE] I am very introspective and reflective. I often ponder things to extract the meaning and significance out of it. I believe we are all here for a purpose and to live a life that matters and is meaningful. This one of my core drivers in life. The idea that I am here for a reason that only I can fulfill. That is so powerful to me.

It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me. Batman

[SELF-AWARE] Obviously Batman did not read Simon Sinek’s book Start With Why. I would rephrase this to say, “It’s not who I am underneath, but WHY I do what I do that defines me.” My why is my greatest superpower. It is why I get up in the morning…why I do what I do…it truly lights me up.

In a world of ordinary mortal, you are a wonder woman. Queen Hippolyta (Wonder Woman’s Mother)

[UNIQUE] My story, my life lessons and experiences are what make me stand out. They are what make me unique out of the 7 billion people on the planet. No two people have the exact same story or circumstance. Take that in for a moment. Your story is what makes you different. But it is also what draws others to you. It is what allows you to connect with others on an emotional heart level. So powerful. Never forget the power of your story.

You are stronger than you think you are. Trust me. Superman

[STRENGTH] One of the things that I have become good at is flowing in the face of adversity. I have a quiet strength about me. I can remain calm in the most challenging of situations. Right now life is testing my strength. But in everything I shall remain calm.

When you decide not to be afraid, you can find friends in super unexpected places. Ms. Marvel

[FEARLESS] This challenge has allowed me to come out of hiding…come out of my shell…and put myself out there. That in and of itself is a hell of a super power. the ability to face my fears and do it anyway. I am excited about making new friends.

Thank you Natalie Sisson!

Thank you Natalie for yet another awesome challenge. Really enjoyed today’s challenge. It felt really good to give myself credit and to celebrate my superpowers today. I loved tapping into my superpowers today. It brought me back to my childhood. I had so much fun! So often we do not do this enough. I will definitely tap into my super powers more often.
