Today, I’m seeking out my superpowers or the things I’m exceptionally good at. The things that turn me into a superhero.
Why? Finding your superpowers are the key for experiencing the freedom lifestyle because when you do something you’re good and love, it feels less like a job and more like something you want to do.
Because finding out what your superpowers are is the key to the freedom lifestyle. Nothing is more freeing than when what you do to make money is something you love, something that you enjoy doing and something that you are good at. Your superpowers will hit every one of those points.
So how do you decide what you’re good at?
Start by making a list of the things you love doing. Follow up with a list of things you’re good at. Look at the list and see if any of the points cross over. These will probably be your superpowers.
If you’re having problems deciding what your superpowers are, you can ask friends, family, even coworkers for help. Don’t be shy and don’t be modest. This isn’t the time for that. Remember this list is about creating freedom in your life. It’s about building the lifestyle you want.
As I stated in my post Why Do I Want to Live the Freedom Lifestyle?, “I love food. I love talking about food. And I love writing about food.”
Food is my passion. A lot of my life centers around it. I love the finding excellent ingredients, cooking, eating, sharing and talking food. And I’m good at it.
I’m also great at organizing and problem solving. The problem is that I don’t know how to explain to other people how I do it. I just see something that needs do and my brain almost immediately knows the easiest and best way to get it done in the most efficient way possible. And it’s done well. But I don’t know how to translate that to someone else. Obviously, something to work on so that I can make this superpower work for me.
I have great work ethics. I believe in doing the best job possible and putting myself into my task. I stick around until the job is complete, even when I’m not happy with what I’m doing. I’m not sure if that’s a superpower or not, but it does mean I get the job done.
I’m a professional procrastinator. While I will work my butt off and get things done, I’m also good at finding other things to do when there’s something I don’t want to do that needs doing. I’m not sure that’s a talent that anyone wants to learn or know more about but maybe it is something that I need to work on to have more time doing the stuff I want to do and less time doing the things I don’t. Not sure if this is a superpower, but I have a feeling that I can turn it into one with a little focus.
I enjoy writing but lately it feels like I’m trying to find my voice. I feel like I’ve grown so much over the past few years that I’m not entirely sure what my voice is now. I’m a little all over the place. I’m good at writing. I’ve always done it. My mother still has little poems and stories that I wrote as a child. I continued writing my whole life. So while I do believe writing is one of my superpowers, I have to find the new me, my new voice.
Traveling pops to mind. I love traveling. So why would it be a superpower? Be it helps me experience more cuisines, cultures and flavors. Which in turn, strengthens my cooking skills. I’m so excited to share my travel in the form of tasty recipes and yummy dishes.
While I have a few other things that I’m exceptionally good at, such as gardening, travel planning and caring for others, I feel confident that my writing is what I want to do. Now I have to translate that into paying clients.
Finding the missing voice is my strongest hidden superpower. I can feel it lurking right in the back of my mind, seeking release. Once found, the world may just be in trouble because once found, I have no intentions of shutting up anytime soon.
So what are your superpowers? What makes you a superhero?
