What I mean by Super Power is — your unique gift or natural talent.
Our natural gifts (super powers) are things we find easy and take for granted that we assume others can do.
Jim Carrey’s powerful message –
“All you have to figure out – is what your talent is”
“You can fail at what you don’t want — so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love”
We need to discover the essence of who we are, what our special super power or natural talent is – which is a natural part of our personalities.
The more closely you can work with your natural talent, the more satisfaction and success you will have in your career, leading to a happier, more fulfilling and satisfying life.
Here are 10 Steps to help you find your Super Power!
1. Look back to your childhood. Part of the secret starts with examining your childhood.
Think back to your childhood and ask yourself these questions:
What did you do?
How did you fill your days?
What are your greatest memories?
What was the most fun?
There will be a common thread in there that will lead you down the path toward your unique gift.
2. Lost track of time?
What activity absorbed your attention to the point that you forgot time.
3. Others perceptions of you
Ask your friends or work associates about your strengths, skills or characteristics are.

Create special time for yourself to take a break from work and life. This will provide the space for your mind to listen inwardly and hear.

Record your inner most thoughts, intuitions, feelings and creative ideas. Letting your thoughts flow on paper will unlock your mind and lead you to your purpose.
8. Unlock your dreams
Think about what your ideal day, week, month, life would look like. Write a list of what that looks like.
Action something on that list.
9. Plan a treat
