Superpowers and Superheros

I bet you didn’t know that just Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern had superpowers! We do too!!!! But we have to cultivate them. My friend Chris Lianos, author of “Finding Zero” spent this week teaching on being open to abundance on Periscope.  We have to cultivate some super powers to receive it. He described 4 of these in particular:

  1. Gratitude
  2. Compassion
  3. Forgiveness and
  4. Persistence

How do we do this? I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the past couple of days. Gratitude: you find something to be grateful for each day and make it into a habit. Having a grateful heart will make you look for the positive things in life. And as a side benefit: people who are grateful live longer! Science has shown it. So cultivate gratitude!

Compassion: By caring for others, you will show people that you care. And that makes you more attractive to others and will lead to more friendships! And who doesn’t want that?

Forgiveness: By practicing forgiveness, you make life better for yourself! Holding on to a grudge doesn’t help anyone. And also, you will have a better life. By the way, even though some people don’t deserve forgiveness, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t forgive them. And forgiveness doesn’t mean you should be friends.

Finally persistence: Don’t quit on what you want! Winners never quit and quitters never win.

Remember: like Les Brown says,  “You have greatness within you!”

Gratitude
