Maybe I’m not the best writer.
Maybe I’m not the best artist.
Maybe I’m not the best thinker.
But I am supremely qualified to do at least one thing. Here’s my superpower:
I’m the best person to write what I think.
I’m the best person to draw the world through my eyes.
I’m the best person to express my point of view, my experiences, my mistakes, my shortcomings, my strengths.
When I compare myself with others and what they make, when I think, ‘Oh, I could never do that!’, it’s easy to forget my superpower.
And if I do, I won’t express myself — and no one else will.
And even if they were to try, they couldn’t to do it as well as I could. So, it’s up to me.
Learn from others, but don’t wish to be them. We all have unique ways of seeing the world. And we all have our own, priceless way to express what we are.
Have you used your superpower yet?
