Now recently as a Superhero’s coach and single parent (AND fiercely independent), the temptation on school holidays to get distracted and even a bit low in energy with all the extra things going on is a constant. However, what I’ve learnt over the last few years allows me to continue working and not beating myself up if I have to reset a task, or move a few things around that I had planned, and here’s what I know..
It’s easy to say “just do it” or “avoid the obstacles” but sometimes the craters are coming at you thick and fast and as a Superhero you accept that this is to be consistently in action, just hoping you make it to the next level, and if you do that’s great and if you don’t you get back up again. And, a lot of us get stuck on replay, and even rewind because it’s easy to do the same thing rather than have to risk doing something new and look bad. But even then, telling someone what you think they should be doing is not even going to make any difference. Firstly you don’t know actually what’s going on, but they have to see for themself and make the change.. SO what is it that has someone see their hidden powers. As I said there is an emerging formula I am now using as a go to and it’s something like this:
1/ Have a strong context for your life that empowers you
2/ Acknowledge, Accept and Appreciate
3/ Build effective daily habits
4/ Challenge yourself constantly to feel alive
I’m finding that when I feel like my Superhero powers are dwindling a little it is because one of the four above are missing. Plus if it’s feeling uncomfortable you’re definitely doing it right and it’s when it starts to feel a little routine that that is when you need to go back to “GO” and do not collect £200.
To be honest, each of the 4 elements above is a days work in the Superhero’s Bootcamp; and for all of us each one needs revisiting on a regular basis.. Like really! if we all were really practicing acceptance and appreciation the world would look a HUGELY different place; and if we constantly challenged ourselves then hell yeh those spandex pants and costumes would be regular occurrences for us all.
