What is your Superpower?
I love this article by Whitney Johnson in the Harvard Business Review. Her idea that we often under value our own strengths resonated with me.
I know I’m guilty of thinking the things that come easily to me must be commonplace and I’ve observed this limiting thinking in others. Sometimes we don’t even recognize our own strengths. Johnson uses the term “superpowers” to describe “the things we do effortlessly” and I’m a big fan of the superpower metaphor.
I think there are a lot of successful, but unfulfilled people out there who haven’t fully aligned their vocation to their natural strengths with full intention because of the dynamic Johnson describes.
What do you love to do? Chances are it’s something you do effortlessly and it might be your superpower!
