I was watching an interesting video from Room to Read called “What’s Your Superpower”. It had a lot of great ideas. Attainable and inspiring superpowers to help young girls and women build their confidence and power in a difficult world.
Here is how some of the superpowers are described.
I have a superpower.
But it is not what you might think.
It’s not flying. It’s not time travelling.
I’m talking about the life skills that every girl and every woman need.
Superpowers that can be taught
My superpower is curiosity.
My superpower is confidence, because I can motivate others.
My superpower is determination. Determination to personally choose joy and spread it in any environment I enter.
My superpower is empathy because we need to help each other even in a cold world.
My superpower is perseverance because it brings forth unimaginable strength and helps me battle every difficulty with the conviction that I am strong and I can be stronger still.
What’s your superpower?
One of the things that struck me about this list of superpowers is that many of us already have them to varying degrees. Yet, we underestimate just how powerful they are. And we take them for granted.
If we think about it though, powers like curiosity and empathy are core skills that can help anyone throughout their lives. They keep us learning and being more connected to others.
Such superpowers can really help make this world a better place.
Here is the video about superpowers. It is short and fun. Enjoy. (You may have to scroll down a bit.)
Thank you for joining me. Until next time.
