You’ve spent so much time listening to people, God’s voice is being silenced in the negative noise.
As a life coach, I already know that several of you were immediately uncomfortable with the concept of claiming that you have a superpower. I’ve had to coach several clients past seeing themselves in the mediocrity of their circumstances to understanding just how powerful and unstoppable they are. So, let me first say that you are more amazing than you can ever imagine. That’s not my assessment…it’s God’s.
God’s Word confirms that you are His workmanship, which is defined as His masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10). Psalm 139:14 says you are fearfully and wonderfully made, which translates that you are unique and set apart. These promises, among so many others, affirm that you are remarkable; born for purpose and destiny. The problem is you’ve spent so much time listening to people, God’s voice is being silenced in the negative noise.
It's time to quiet the noise and accept that God made you to stand out. As His masterpiece, you are one-of-a-kind and there is no one else like you. You’re not meant to be a carbon copy of anyone else, but to be distinctively and authentically you. If you have spent years listening to naysayers, it’s time to stop seeing yourself through the lens of your past, your pain, your circumstances, or your circle of influence. It’s time to get to know the real you and do what you were purposed to do in this life.
You must first make a conscious choice to release the mediocrity mindset and tap into your greatness.
Don’t downplay your superpower.
No matter what you have endured, experienced, or erroneously believed about you, your superpower has not diminished. You may have suppressed it, but it’s still there. It’s likely the thing others criticized, condemned, belittled, or did not understand. So rather than celebrate that unique part of you, you ignore it or minimize it. But it’s now time to boldly embrace it and to soar into your destiny.
Your superpower is best defined as the area in which others may struggle or need training, but requires little or no effort on your part to do well.
Often, we mistakenly discount our superpower(s) because they come so naturally to us.
To identify your superpower(s), get pen and paper and record your detailed and honest responses to the following 3 questions. Get input from friends if needed. Your responses will reveal incredible insight into your superpower(s) and purpose.
No one can do exactly what you do the way you do it. Your superpower is the foundation of destiny and purpose. Don’t fear it or try to hide it. Boldly pursue your superpower so you can be the authentic you God created you to be. Embrace your superpower and live your purpose!
