I was chatting with a friend the other day and the subject of superpowers came up (I have many great conversations with this particular friend!).
This one in particular was a fun conversation and had us laughing away – especially when we tried to work out our answers to the question “If you could have any superpower for good and any superpower for evil what would you choose?”
Well, my friend’s “evil” superpower would be the ability to make people feel itchy in a way that they couldn’t get rid of! An intriguing choice heh? To be honest once we’d stopped chuckling over the bizarreness of her choice, I made a mental note to not annoy her!
She redeemed herself somewhat with her superpower for “good” choice; she chose the ability to know what would make a person happier in any particular moment and to have the power to ‘give’ that person the ability to see clearly how they can achieve that happiness.
I liked that one very much. Actually, I think she does already have this superpower. In fact, I think we all do.
I believe that the world is an abundant place and that we are all of us capable of living in abundance and wealth – whatever your definition of wealth might be. One of my definitions of ‘wealth’ is to have a sense of happiness and contentment.
We can all be a super-powered super-hero.
We can all be aware of the little things that can make ours and our friend’s and families’ lives feel better and find something to say or do that can assist them in that moment. I’m not talking of big, grand gestures necessarily. I’m simply talking about things such as a smile, a hug, a compliment, a nod of empathy. Gestures of human connection and kindness to ourselves and our fellow man.
So, what would you choose as your superpower for good? Please do let me know in the comments below.
(Oh yes, thanks for asking - my superpower choice for good is that when I tap people lightly on the shoulder, they feel a deep sense of gratitude for all the great things they have in their lives. I toyed with the idea of having x-ray vision… but well I’m not sure I’m truly ready for that!).
P.S. If you would like to know more about how it is possible to live an abundant and wealthy (whatever your definition) life, then Episode 7 of my TV show deals with exactly this subject. You can sign up totally free at this page: https://genuinely-you.com/theshow
