Quick, what's your greatest strength? Apply that "superpower" as a multipurpose tool in all new or tricky situations, and you can excel at whatever you set your mind to.
This advice comes from Duct Tape Marketing's John Hantsch, whose superpower, curiosity, has helped him become "really, really good at everything [he does] ". And everyone, he says, has at least one superpower.
Although it may seem a bit simplistic, if you really take the time to think about your greatest strength or quality — be it resourcefulness or creativity or logic or intuition — and apply it every day to what you do, you'll at the very least be staying true to who you are and letting that guide you.
Put in more comic-book-like terms:
Your superpower is your greatest defender, it shreds resistance and that inner and outer critic that tells you something is hard and that you're no good at it anyway so why bother.
Your superpower allows you to outsmart the fact that some of this stuff is just plain hard and no fun and not natural.
Your superpower helps you tune out those invested in keeping you right where you are.
Your superpower zaps fear.
