What’s your SUPERPOWER? What are you truly capable of?
We all have hidden talents. Superpowers that we just haven’t yet discovered! What’s your superpower? What are you truly capable of?
I was speaking with a parent this week and they said “You had to totally reinvent your business,” and I said “Yes I have. I have never run a martial arts school during a global pandemic. It is definitely something that I am new to.” As we talked about that it got me thinking about this week’s message of the week.
Now I think everybody has different superpowers. Some people are naturally great at math, they just grasp those concepts so easily. Others are naturally great athletes. Some people that just really smooth talkers and comfortable speaking in front of people. I just don’t think that most people know what they’re superpower is until they’re forced to use it.
I think my superpower is being willing to try new things and accepting that sometimes I am going to fail. This pandemic has taught me that.
Too many people care about what other people think and are afraid to look silly when they try something new. They sit on the couch and worry about what’s going to happen. They think ‘What if?’ and worry about how they will look if they make a mistake and fail. For me, I just don’t care that much. I’m trying my best, working my hardest and I will get to where I need to go eventually. Even if I make some mistakes along the way, I’ll get to where I need to go.
This week’s message of the week revolves around that. This week’s message of the week is…
You never know what you can do until you try and very few people are willing to try unless they have to.
One great thing that is going to come out of this pandemic is that we realize we’re capable of more. It was much more than what we were doing before. Because of everything going on, I’ve learned so many new skills. Trying to learn how to navigate everything that’s going on, has forced me to learn those things.
This week, as go through the week, inevitably you’re gonna have some challenges and obstacle. To get around them, you’re going to have to learn how to do something new. And, you can either sit on the couch and complain or you can just try it. But, the sooner you try it, the sooner you’re going to figure out what you’re capable of (and perhaps a new superpower!) and if you do that you’re going to accomplish amazing things.
That is it. I look forward to seeing you in the mats soon.
