05 Jun Do you know what your SUPERPOWER is? #FireMeUp11
Personal Branding Tip #6: Embrace your uniqueness and your superpowers.
I believe key ingredients of a magnificently, magnetic personal brand include tapping into your passions, vision, and – YES – rocking out your SUPERPOWERS. (aka strengths or unique talents)
If you desire to build a successful business and life you love – you must recognize and define those attributes and talents that are uniquely YOU. When you boldly embrace who you are meant to be, and declare what fires you up, you attract the right relationships, clients, and business partners. Sounds pretty simple, right?
So, what are your superpowers? List them out:
Not quite sure? Start by asking yourself a few questions:
- What (talent, skill, magic) am I know for in my sphere?
- What do people always come to me for when they are in need?
- What activity or task do I LOVE and could do blindfolded, in my sleep, with one hand tied behind my back? (you get the idea!)
Some of my favorites shared at a recent Seattle LEXI Women’s Leadership Summit:
Toddler Whisperer (awesome!), Chocolate Chip Cookie Baker, Encourager, Wicked Organizer, Queen of Comforting, and Creative Spark!
As you can see, superpowers come in many forms! I asked “What is your superpower?” on Facebook today… and the variety of answers was so fantastic. Take a peek here and see if any of these inspire you… oh, and feel free to click and leave yours on the list to inspire future readers!
In a nutshell, you’ll know something is a superpower when it fires you up and fills your soul tank, when you’re enjoying the process, and/or when you would do whatever it is for FREE (or PAY to do it)!
Okay, now that you have defined your superpowers, ask yourself:
“Am I truly tapping into my super powers?”
What I mean by this is–> Do your work or hobbies TRULY TAP INTO your personal superpowers?
Why does this matter?
Simply put – you can build up knowledge and fill the gaps around your weakest areas to get a promo… however, working, owning, and rocking out to your superpowers will take you as far as you wish to go – nearly effortlessly! It is pretty easy to guess which one most of us would choose.
Are you ready to get REAL with your superhero self, rock out your defined niche, and achieve your full potential?
Repeat after me:
I am fully equipped
to achieve anything I envision
if I allow my true superpowers to SHINE…
(Cape not required to participate in this mantra, but one is absolutely encouraged.)
Alright, now repeat it again. This time stand up and stretch your arms and hands above your head.
Go on, I will wait.
Great job. You KNOW that felt amazing.
Note: If you didn’t try it standing up “with your hands in the air like you just don’t care”… you only cheated yourself. The rest of us have HUGE smiles on our faces…
We all have our own Wonder Woman, Iron Man, or special Super Hero powers inside us… Don’t hide yours any longer. If you have a freak flag – FLY IT HIGH. Don’t make yourself small so others feel better.
The world deserves your brand of SUPERPOWER sass, style, and spunk!
Now, for those of you who are stuck on this…
and just can’t seem to pinpoint your SUPERpower.
