Many of us grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons with our favorite Super heroes, Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, and Superman to name a few. Super heroes have not lost their charm even today. We identify with our super heroes because we know their vulnerabilities. In spite of their internal frailties they continue to rise above the fray and win against seemingly insurmountable odds.
We want to believe that about ourselves. We are inspired to channel our inner “Super Hero”. However, there is no HERO unless ordinary becomes extraordinary. The requirement of GREATNESS demands that we rise above our own doubts and fears.
Notice GREATNESS has nothing to do with popularity, fame or fortune. In fact, sometimes the prerequisite to GREATNESS demands your willingness to let it ALL go.
In light of the recent passing of “THE GREATEST” his example is noteworthy. During the prime of his career, “THE GREATEST” took inventory of his convictions and stayed true to the vision he saw for his life. His then current situation was dark but his long-term vision was bright and he believed in himself and his future.
He believed, “the Impossible is always Possible when your mind, body and spirit are in alignment to your vision“.
Is my mind, body and spirit in alignment to my vision for my life?
“Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” – Walter Anderson
Super Heroes are Super Heroes (real or fiction) for a reason.
They see their challenges honestly but they see past the challenge and remain true to their vision.
I encourage YOU, tap into your inner, “SUPER HERO”
