I believe we all have an inner superpower. Something we naturally excel at. This isn’t something simple or pragmatic, like being able to pick the perfect-sized Tupperware for leftovers (although that is a major asset several of my friends possess). Your inner superpower is something you have had since childhood. It’s a strength that came to you without working for it. It’s probably something people have commented on for years and years.
- You Stay Really Calm In The Face Of Conflict And Stress.
- You Can Deeply Connect And Relate To Other People, Particularly People In Distress
- You Can See Beauty, Even When The World Or The Moment Appears Ugly To Others.
If you have ever watched a Marvel movie, you will also know that superpowers come with strings attached. Many superpowers can be harnessed for good, but exist on the brink of evil. They can serve the superheroes in incredible ways, but they can also be their downfall. Your midwifery superpower is like that too. It is one of your biggest gifts but also a huge weakness if treated with respect and care. My Superpower is to Pull the Best out of Midwives to Make a Stronger and More Accessible Midwifery World!
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR INNER SUPERPOWER IS?
People have probably referred to your superpower since childhood. Even strangers have probably commented on it. People may even have been a little worried about it. As a young child, I have always been a big dreamer! I would always ask lots of questions and wonder about possibilities. I would sit and daydream for hours about what my future will look like. Today, I use that visionary/futuristic strength to harness inspiration in millions of women worldwide! We can do anything if we learn our inner power and utilize it to our ultimate potential! What strengths do people notice in you? Remember that you may not be harnessing your superpower most effectively, so it might not be something that seems obvious.
IS YOUR SUPERPOWER HINDERING YOUR WORK-LIFE BALANCE OR YOUR HAPPINESS?
Once you know your inner superpower, you might realize it’s not something you have always seen as a strength. In fact, it might even be something you or other people have seen as a weakness. I know someone who stays unbelievably calm amidst chaos, but people often describe her as emotionally detached.
Her superpower does not always serve her. People see it as a weakness. It’s a way in which she is very different than most people. When she uses this superpower in the right way, it is an incredible tool, but it can also leave her vulnerable. All superpowers are like this. You might even feel like your superpower is more of a problem than a strength. Sometimes that’s true.
HOW MY FUTURISTIC FOCUS GETS IN THE WAY OF GRATITUDE, HAPPINESS, AND WORK-LIFE BALANCE
My superpower helps me work with an intense determination to change the future, but makes it so staying in the present with clients, family, and friends is very challenging for me. I am not fully listening or appreciating the moments in front of me as much as I should. But my superpower is also very present at my weakest moments. My people are talking, it can be hard to not be in my visionary world and tasks I need to get done later today for that to happen. My meditation and life coach support has really helped with honing in on those mental distractions I create from having such a strong future thought process.
HOW IS YOUR SUPERPOWER HINDERING YOUR HAPPINESS?
If you haven’t yet figured out your superpower, looking at your weaknesses might shed some light. If you haven’t been harnessing your superpower and treating it with care, it’s probably seen as more of a weakness than a strength. Once you know your superpower, you can really reflect on how your superpower doesn’t serve you. In what ways does it make you less happy? How does it make you feel weak, stupid, powerless? Think of times in your life you have been unhappy, stressed, and struggling. How did this superpower play a role?
