SUMMARY: What’s Your Superpower?

DEFINITION – WHAT IS A SUPERPOWER?

Your superpower is that thing that positively and uniquely distinguishes you from others.  It’s what makes you remarkable.  It’s what makes you, YOU!



We all have a superpower.

You can have more than one superpower, but less is more. It’s better to have one than to have many.

Your superpower can evolve over time.  However, it’s probably something that is part of your identity for your whole life. It’s your essence.



TWO WAYS TO LEVERAGE YOUR SUPERPOWER

CONFIDENCE 



When you feel that shot of adrenaline – For many people, this is the most significant way to leverage your superpower.  The next time you step out on stage (giving a speech, presentation, a pitch, a job interview, a big meeting), remind yourself of your superpower.  Let it fuel you up and elevate your confidence.

Contributing in meetings – If you aren’t sure when to jump in or what to say in an important meeting, focus on your superpower.  Say something like, “Based on my expertise,…”  Suddenly, the words come easy. You’re reminding everyone, including yourself, of your superpower. And the words come much more easily!



CAREER TRAJECTORY



Generally, when you know what your superpower is, it clarifies where and how to focus your career. It helps you make decisions about what to do (and what to avoid) because if your job is closely related to your superpower, you will be successful and you will be happy!

When you’re considering a new job or a promotion, consider whether the opportunity checks the boxes in terms of your superpower, Then you’ll know whether you should go for it!
