Ever notice how on some days you feel like you can do anything? Wouldn't you like to have that feeling every single day? I know I would. It's a fact that you can. No. Not with an over-inflated sense of self or by bullying others into submission. No brute force is required. It can be achieved, however, with calmness and a quiet, deep belief that we are all that we have all that we need to be great. Yes. We are all born super heroes. But, as life goes along, some of us lose our "edge" while other go on to continue great things. But it isn't luck, really, that determines our greatness; it's our sense of self. Some of our greatest super heroes have never worn a red cape or "hopped" over buildings in a single bound. Ghandi and Martin Luther King are great examples of this. But there are others, too; ones that are far less well-known. Like your neighborhood volunteer fireman who puts his life on the line for no pay. He does it because he has a desire to help others. Or the woman who, on her way to work, stops traffic to rescue a dog that's sitting in the road, scared and lost. We can all be these super heros. It's not difficult. And we needn't look very far. There are countless opportunities every single day, right in our own "backyards", to be a super hero. You know it's within you so why not just do it; do it without thinking. Take the risk. Find somebody (or something) today that needs your help. Maybe all they need is a smile and a sympathetic ear. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture. But, at the end of the day, you will have been their super hero. I like knowing that I have these super powers...they make me smile. They give me a sense of being powerful and necessary in an often shaky and uncertain world. So go Fly Fearless today. Superman didn't have to think whether or not he had the time...or ability to help someone in trouble. He just did it. You can, too!
