Have you lost your passion? Do you feel more overwhelmed than grateful?
Do you sometimes feel like you’re just going through the motions and keep wishing you could escape the humdrum of everyday, boring old life?
Do you sometimes fantasize about leaving it all behind?
I recently found myself questioning everything ... my relationship, my role as a father, where I live, who I am ... right down to the core of questioning my very motivation for life!
I found myself asking, “Am I really living MY life?”
These kinds of big life questions are not always easy to answer. Our lives are intimately tied to the people around us at work, in our families and with our friends. Who we are and what we do affects those around us in a very real way. To question these things at a foundational level can really rock the ship.
I tried to keep my own process to myself, thinking it would eventually pass, however, I’ve had these kinds of deep questions arise in me before and I know that in order for them to pass, I must at some point, speak my truth. What holds me back, most often, is the fear and likelihood of hurting the feelings of those I love.
Finding purpose and passion through different stages of life can be a challenge; and it must be, as those stages show up so we can grow. Communicating our truth is not always easy.
Without a doubt, open, honest communication is one of the most essential keys to any lasting relationship, whether intimate, friendship or work-related. I have been with my wife for over 15 years and speaking our truth, even when it hurts, is one of the things that has kept us together and allowed our love for each other to deepen as we both grow.
Communicating fantasies of leaving it all behind is not an easy thing to do when you are intimately tied to a way of life and those around you, whether that’s in your job, your relationship or other. However, what can you do when the imaginings and fantasies start to crowd out your ability to be present with those you love and enjoy what you have?

Do you consider yourself to be a Superhero Entrepreneur? If you haven't already joined the ranks of success superherodom as a business owner, and you crave to slip mightily into own your own super'entrepreneur'suit, I recommend checking out Superhero business owner, John Greathouse's power-packed article on '10 Startup Lessons Entrepreneurs Can Learn from Superheroes'. http://johngreathouse.com/10-startup-lessons-from-superheroes/
Jason Greathouse has woven his fascination with superheroes into the Core Values that his company operates by through creating what he calls a "superhero culture". BOOM! Holy breakthrough, Batman!!
He tells his employees, “When you come into the company every day, I want you thinking you are that superhero.”
My fave of his power-packed 10 Lessons is #08 - Superheroes Can Do It By Themselves, But Are More Powerful In Teams.
Who is on your team? Who are the people that inspire you to live and be your best?
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” - Jim Rohn, Legendary Superhero Entrepreneur
"Who you spend time with is who you become." -Tony Robbins, Superhero Entrepreneur
Maston Kipp, another amazing Superhero Entrepreneur, wrote an outstanding article on this very subject... Here's the link for a great read:'Who You Spend Time With Is Who You Become'. Say hi and give him a supercomment on his superblog.
Okay, I'm getting a little out of control with the "super"s, but hey, when did the comics ever hold back?!
Amongst all distractions, the question remains... Who are you surrounding yourself with and how are they influencing your superhero decisions?
I was thinking how I could add some supercoach wisdom for you today and came up with the following:
1 SuperStep to Superhero Entrepreneurship.
Step 1: Own Your Superhero Identity.
It's really very simple. The moment you own your identity as a superhero entrepreneur, the game changes. All those things you thought you needed to buy, experience or learn to feel complete are suddenly buzzing within you. Have you ever tried it? Have you ever truly owned it? Do you have it within you to stand as your superhero self right now!
If you accept the challenge and you are standing and owning your Superhero Identity now, I encourage you to consider the following questions from this new perspective:
- At what level, 0-10, are you owning your Superhero Identity right now and what would you need to do to make it a 10+?
- What were the changes you made physically to access your Superhero ID?
- What was your focus before and what is your focus now?
- How and when could you access this place of power again?
It may have sounded absurd at first, however, the fact that you are standing and resonating in your power is a testament to your dedication to owning your Greatness and countless successes to come. To truly access your superpowers, requires self-leadership, self-ownership and being willing to do the absurd.
If you were to make a statement to the world from this place of power, what would you say? Go ahead... Keep standing as your superhero self, own your power, and make your proclamation to the world. OR continue to delay your Greatness by remaining seated and continuing to settle for simply being an observer of others' Greatness.
- What is your Superhero Identity?
- How will you own your Superhero Identity today?
Remember to never forget that your truth is within you. The world is here to reflect back your truth and is always providing exactly what you need. Own your Greatness and you can have anything and everything you ever wanted and more. You make the world a better place every day.
Here's a hilarious superhero practical joke for a good laugh :)
