After a tiring morning at a playbarn with my little people last Friday, I returned to my car parked in an icy field. Driving out I looked in my rear view mirror to see my pal stuck, wheels spinning! So, of course I stopped and pushed her out. Later that day my friend sent me this text: J said ‘Why is Kerry is a Super Hero?’, which left me somewhat baffled.
For some hours I was rather bemused by this but thoroughly enjoyed where my mind went; How can I be a super hero? What is it that makes me a super hero? What did he see in me? What am I not seeing in myself? As the day progressed I put up all of my talents against this label to see if they would stick? Would they? Could they? What is it that I do that I could be a super hero to a three year old? To anyone?
What would think if you were told you were a ‘Super Hero’?
Three year old or not, it certainly made my day. Even when we figured why we think he came to this conclusion, I was (and am) still rather thrilled by it. I wonder how long it will take him to realise that I am not a bionic woman who pushes cars out of ditches… well it was just a little jog really, a shuv truth be told. But I will take that handle thank you very much – with a great big smile on my face and a skip in my heart.
How about you?
This episode has given me so much clarity in what makes me different and what is it that I want for my clients. I want to find the ‘Super Hero’ in everyone! I do. We live in a world where we are educated and socialised to fit in, to be one of the crowd, to be ‘normal’. I coach people to be their version of ‘normal’. The label of being your own ‘Super Hero’ sounds fun doesn’t it? it allows you to smile and feel special about it.
If you feel that you don’t know your own strengths and want a way to focus them; find a way to hire me as your coach and I will find your ‘Super Hero’.
