Ways To Become “Super Man”

Way back then

I am hanging out with our old ancestral house with my grandparents this Christmas Eve when i saw an old magazine. When i glance upon the old pages I saw a picture of Christopher Reeve. The caption simply read, “Super man.” People might have remembered him for his timeless portrayal of Superman.

But they will never forget his tireless crusade on behalf of disabled everywhere. The tragic horse-riding accident that left him paralyzed also gave him wings to soar above his physical limitations.

That’s not to say that it wasn’t difficult for him. He even contemplated suicide at one point. So it made me think, what characteristics did he have that made him so strong?

Courage

Most of us avoid challenges. Maybe we don’t like confrontation, or maybe we just want to take the path of least resistance.

But there comes a time when we, individually, must face our deepest fears. It could be accepting a job that moves you half way across the country. Or walking out on a relationship that should have ended ten years ago.

Whatever is keeping you from enjoying your life needs to be examined, evaluated, and executed. No one’s going to do it for you. Be brave.

Optimism

Ever hear the old glass half full/half empty analogy? Well, it’s true. You have a 50/50 chance of being positive or negative.

Which side do you find yourself on most of the time? Negative thinking can be a very hard habit to break.

But the good thing is, it is easily remedied. How? Speak positively. Act positively. Replace negative self-talk with uplifting messages that you tape to your mirror and day planner.

Before you know it, you will think positively. Action precedes attitude. A good attitude is contagious, so surround your self with people who are upbeat and encouraging.

Self-determination

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? A person without a goal is like a bus without a driver.

Don’t let limitations, either real or perceived, keep you from your objective. And don’t listen to the nay Sayers, even if at times you think they must be right. If something is important to you, stick with it. You will be amazed at what you can do.

 

There is a bit of a superhero in all of us. Sometimes, it takes an unexpected event to bring that hero out. And sometimes, we can help someone else see that hero in themselves.

Life is Worth Living

 

Remember, defeat has never been the worst of failures, but not trying at all is the true failure. Sometimes, it helps you to realize your limitations and capabilities. After all, not everything is dependent on you; there are several others out there ready to screw your life goals in one way or the other.

In all of these, taking opportunities is critical to achieving one’s goals. You may have had several setbacks in the past, but the man that persists, is the one that knows what it means to achieve his goals irrespective of the obstacles confronting him.

Mental preparation is key, and one of the surest ways of reaching your goals. Evaluate what went wrong previously, learning how not to repeat the same mistake again. With that, you should be able to make progress, even tiny bits of it.

To fail is heart-wrenching, not to bounce back is like putting a death sentence to all your dreams and aspirations. Like a stone loosed from a sling, confront your Goliath without fear! You may have been buried beneath the currents of life, but it’s time to rear your head and clutch at the opportunities before you. Never be afraid of anything, rather, seize life with a second grip like someone who almost lost it the first time.

You’re coming out of the fire as a purified gold. Life is worth living!
