Every human being has the potential to be super. We were all born with special powers. The powers which we posses if optimally utilized will produce outstanding results. It will give us the ability to emerge as fathers of inventions, captains of industries and political leaders.
For every Super Human, there exists a vast number of Super Powers that they have mastered over time and are utilizing to solve the problems of humanity, but let focus on my top 7.
1. THE POWER OF LOOKS
They say, “How you dress determines how you will be addressed”. Nothing can be further from the truth. I’ve found out that fabulous looking people have more power and attract more people to themselves. They know how to use the power of looks to their benefit.
2. THE POWER OF COMMUNICATION
Communication is a fundamental part of our lives. Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity.
We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement or destructively with words of despair. Words have the power to help, to heal, to hurt, to exalt and to humble. Let’s use them wisely.
3. THE POWER OF CREATIVITY
Creativity is the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; it is inventiveness. According to Steve Jobs, Creativity is just connecting things.
When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things, to produce solutions.
4. THE POWER OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
In 2017, I did a course in digital marketing which centred around increasing sales by utilizing technological tools. I was so bored; in fact, I did not wait till the end.
I left that training feeling I had wasted my time. Then one day, I became broke
and needed money to settle my bills. Guess what I did to get the money: a digital
This got me thinking and I came up with the conclusion “if you really want to stand out as a Super human, you must know how to use electronic devices to process and utilize information that’s basically what Information Technology is.
5. THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE
Oh! the joy of having knowledge! The source of all learning is knowledge and knowledge is power.
This is the most important power there is. No human can claim to be super if they are not at least one step ahead of everyone else in their knowledge specially their competitors and those they lead. So we must equip ourselves with as much information as possible so we can stand tall and remain relevant.
6. THE POWER OF NEGOTIATION.
According to the English Encarta Dictionary, Negotiation is defined as the reaching of agreement through discussion and compromise. From the
definition, two things stand out; Discussion and Compromise.
Every human must be able to discuss and come to a compromise when it comes to things that concern them especially when it relates to making impact and making money. So many peope accept offers and jobs that are not worth their time and expertise, when this happens, the motivation to get the job done is absent, this has a way of discouraging them from really giving their best.
It is therefore wise to know what you are worth and ask for it, don’t just accept what is thrown at you. Engage in reasonable discussion and be firm, you could compromise a little but never settle for what you will be angry with when eventually you take the job or contract. Every human must master the art of negotiation.
7. THE POWER OF SELF LEADERSHIP.
You cannot successfully lead another person if you have not first mastered the art of leading yourself. Leadership starts with you. So many humans can barely lead themselves, they have no ability to discipline themselves neither do they know how to wield the power of self-control that’s why they remain mediocre.
If you really want to stand out as a leader, work on yourself first.
The first place to start is with self-love and self-confidence. Knowing who you are as a leader makes you stand out. Know your strengths and major on it, become a ten in the area of your strength.
Know your weakness too and
never let your focus be on your weakness. Do not try to be someone else. Be you; unique, different, exceptional.
So you see, making a difference on Earth is a function of wielding your super powers to the advantage of humanity.
Start today and humanity with not just recognize you but will reward you for your super works.
