Best Cool Superpowers You Definitely Have But Probably Have No Idea
“No matter what happens to you in your life, you alone have the capacity to choose your response to it. When you form the habit of searching for the positive in every circumstance, your life will move into its highest dimensions. This is one of the greatest of all natural laws.”
– Robin Sharma
Do you have any idea about your hidden talents or the powers you possess? If you answered it in a ‘No’, then this article is only for you. Each one of us wants a high happiness index, peace of mind, mature character, and success in life but most of us do not really strive to achieve these goals. Out of those who struggle for their goals a very few are able to make things happen.
The difference between successful and unsuccessful people is the difference between the level of Inner Power both the categories possess in their brains and the level of Power they exert to achieve what they want to achieve.
With the simple human powers you possess today, you can dramatically change your own life and can easily influence others as well. In general, the Inner Powers consist of the following twelve categories, and the intellectual who possess all these mental muscles can accomplish a great deal in most of the fields of life:
1. The Super Power of Vision
A fast pace horse running in the wrong direction will never reach its destination. Instead, it will cause a misleading ripple effect to its followers too. The Power of Vision depends on your thoughts, your awareness about the field, your comprehension capabilities, and your caliber to visualize the future. It is important to understand that thoughts are the seeds for your character because thoughts give birth to actions which become your habits and constitute your personality and consequently your destiny.
Empowering your thought process involves staying away from negative thoughts, trying to be part of the solutions instead of problems with less criticism and more optimism. Secondly, empowering your awareness level involves meeting with learned people and watching relevant documentaries.
Make it a habit to read good books or magazines and to watch the news daily to improve your vision. Once you develop Power of Vision, your comprehension levels will be as deep as a sea; your thoughts will fly as high as the sky and your strategies will be as solid as rocks.
2. The Super Power of Now
People make plans but they do not execute them. They keep thinking and keep waiting for the ‘right’ moment to kick off their plans. This ‘right’ moment never comes. The right moment is Now. The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up and act. This is understood that planning is important. However, if you keep wasting your time in the name of planning, you will end up as a failed person.
Break down the big target into smaller tasks and start implementing one by one, starting today. Do not waste your time as your idea might get implemented by someone else. You might have more tough circumstances with more complications tomorrow.
You might have to bear the burden of additional responsibilities; so Now is the time to make a difference. Now is the time to make things happen. Remember, your thoughts will not take you anywhere if you do not implement them. So take action Now!!!
3. The Super Power of Focus
Focus on goals every day. Focusing daily on our goals helps us succeed in reaching them because it’s a constant reminder of what we desire in life. There is a story in Mahabharata which tells that during the bird shooting session, Guru Dronacharya asked each prince what he is looking at.
One prince said, I am looking at the flock of birds, another said, I am looking at the tree where birds are about to sit; however Arjun said that I am looking in the eyes of one of the flying birds! This is the power of focus which means that one has to concentrate all of his energies on one goal and do not let any obstacle change his attention.
Do not let your mind get distracted from your goal. Do not let wayward thoughts spoil your plans. Always keep in mind, what you focus on increases so do not let the seeds of negativity get nourished in your brain. Use Zoom-In and Zoom-Out tools to strengthen your Power of Focus.
4. The Super Power of Listening
Listen more, talk less. Be attentive in every meeting. Hear everyone out, no matter how useless you think their ideas are. You never know which thought of theirs strikes off a new, brilliant idea in your head. Also, the less you speak, the lesser are the chances of you uttering something stupid. It will also make you come across as an intelligent person. You want people to literally wait to hear what you have to say.
What Are The Super Powers That You Must Possess
5. The Super Power of Positivity
Successful people possess a positive mindset. To develop this power you must shield yourself from negativity. Remember that being positive will give you the freedom to look forward instead of looking backward. If you keep wandering in the past with negative thoughts you will not be able to proceed towards your goals. Positive people are part of solutions not part of problems.
Positive people convert risks into opportunities. They have a sense of gratitude. They believe in skills, not in luck. If you want to build this power, try staying away from negative-minded persons, make the habit of joining the company of good people, read words of wisdom and keep yourself in a positive environment.
Always maintain a positive mental attitude. Remember what Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President of America said – “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
6. The Super Power of Kindness
Everyone hurts. That’s why it’s important to be kind to everyone. Even a small gesture of kindness can have a big impact. There is no greater value to offer as a human being than the simple power of kindness. Kindness does not mean you are a “yes” person or a pushover. Kindness which is success generated is the kindness that can deliver good and bad news with grace.
Kindness that is geared toward higher standards is the kindness that gives feedback rather than criticism. Kindness that inspires hard work is the kindness that sees possibilities not problems. Kindness is a soft skill that is hard but powerful. So always be kind. Be good to yourself and the people you work with and for.
If you have anger issues, take up kickboxing. Create the emotional environment around you to be infectious, contagious, and advantageous to all who are blessed to be a part of it. Kindness will take you further in success than any other human attribute.
7. The Super Power of Analytics
If working more could ensure success, you’d see a dozen more people sitting in late at work. Working hard doesn’t help as much as working smart does. Find out the shortest way of solving a problem and you’ll be surprised at how efficient you suddenly get. Being analytical helps in many ways.
For example, breaking down bigger problems into smaller tasks, considering the issue from wider and multiple angles, evaluating the options from ‘Needs and Wants’ perspective, differentiating between urgent and important tasks and eventually working on things that matter the most.
Whether you want to analyze large data at work, or you want to purchase a new mobile set, resolve a technical issue or handle a conflict in family or work, analytical skills help you a lot.
8. The Super Power of Flexibility
Be flexible in your environment. Be both book smart and street smart. Mostly people think the other way around; in fact, being flexible does not mean being weak; instead, it portrays your powerful personality trait that you care about others and respect the difference of opinion. It is said: “Better to bend than to break” so the more flexible you are, the more you will be able to manage stress which will strengthen your thought process.
Keep your ego aside and listen to the perspective of others. Keep your mental doors open and be flexible in changing your plans. Be adaptable to situations because sometimes U-turn in life is fine to take. Do not get disheartened. Remember, “God takes men to deep waters not to drown them but to cleanse them”.
Amazing Super Powers That Will Boost Your Work Life
9. The Super Power of Gratitude
Happiness and success will never come until we’re completely grateful for what we have. Even if we think that all we have are problems, we have to be grateful for them. Because, if we were to throw our problems into the ring with those of others from around the world, we would certainly take our problems back.
When we can live in a state of abundance and gratitude, happiness and success will eventually transpire. But if we can’t emerge from that state of lack, happiness and success will forever be fleeting. Even if we achieve them, it will only be a momentary state of bliss or success, and it will disappear as soon as the next want or desire sets in.
Even if you say you have nothing to be grateful for, find something. You can be grateful for this great human life. You can be grateful for the ability to read and write, have reason and logic. You can be grateful for friends, family members, pets, food on your plate, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and so on.
10. The Super Power of Implosiveness
Great people are not explosive at all. They are colled at mind and heart. They are not oversensitive and reactive in nature. When a tragic situation triggers their anger, they analyze it from logical, emotional, and ethical angles and then respond in order to improve the situation and not vice-versa. So you must believe in the fact that reactive nature will reduce your friends and increase your foes.
Empower your personality with these seven superpowers and gain ultimate heights in life. Remember, success is not a destination, it is a journey. For this journey, there are no escalators so you must take the ladder passage, which means you have to take a step-by-step approach to reach the top.
If you are in doubt at any stage, just take the next small step and notice the consequences. If all is fine, go ahead; if something goes wrong, take a step back and re-assess your direction.
11. The Super Power of Persuasion
Finally, one superpower that is especially important for every working professional is being able to persuade and influence others. Persuasion is a good quality for success. Systematic persuasion is a process through which attitudes or beliefs are leveraged by appeals to logic & reason. Attitudes or beliefs leveraged by appeals to habit or emotion form heuristic persuasion.
Both have their own plus points & drawbacks. Remember your ability to persuade others—to win them over to your point of view and inspire them to action—is grounded in your relationship with that person and in your own integrity.
12. The Super Power of Self-Examination
People make mistakes and their attitudes change. This is how they grow. It is important to take time to examine yourself and your attitudes along the way. A brittle person is a good candidate for crumbling dust. Examine yourself and your business practices, not just your finances and profits. In the end, it is your attitude that makes you successful in life, career, or business. So, start examining yourself today.
