When I was a kid I loved watching Saturday morning cartoons. Especially cartoons about superheroes. One of the defining characteristics of a superhero is their signature superpower. Like super strength, super stretchiness, super spideriness or super soup-making abilities.
But all humans have an innate superpower that enables them to transform into an amazingly powerful human. That superpower is your ability to evolve.
This is not the type of evolution that a species experiences over a series of generations. Like when humans lost their tails. Or the way texting is going to evolve us into a species with super pointy thumbs.
This type of super evolution is available to every human during their own lifetime. Which means that you have the ability to dramatically transform yourself. No phone booth or super suit required.
You can transform yourself physically, through exercise and significantly increase your strength, endurance, flexibility and pain tolerance.
You can transform your thinking through self-education, reading, classes, accumulated experience and knowledge.
You can transform yourself mentally, by developing your resilience, grit, and determination.
You can transform your income by learning how to provide ever-increasing value to others.
You can evolve into a more compassionate human by recognizing the evolutionary journey others are on.
You can develop tremendous courage, kindness, and creativity. As well as other positive attributes that don’t start with a C or K.
As a human, you can develop great strengths in any area of your life. Your potential is unlimited. So think like a superhero. Because you have the ability to evolve into the most amazing human you can imagine.
Your ability to evolve is your great superpower. Push yourself to grow and improve every day. Recognize that strain, pain and adversity trigger your growth. Embrace challenges that force you to adapt. They are gifts that continuously generate a better, stronger, smarter version of yourself.
