Dear Pinkies, please welcome JulieAnn Turner, CEO of Creatorsguide.com, a Passionate Guide to Your Singular Greatness, and an Author/Expert on Creative Process. JulieAnn & Lissa Rankin will be co-hosting a webinar On Tuesday, January 19 about discovering your superpowers and co-creating the life you dream of living. In anticipation of this event, JulieAnn shares her wisdom and tips on uncovering the Pink superhero within.
It seems they are inescapable!
They infuse our culture, our literature ... and our movie screens are sizzling with - that's right: Superheroes!
This Winter they may be as subtle (and suave) as genius Sherlock Holmes or as fantastical and magical as "JakeSully" and his poweful female guide Neyteri in Avatar. From classics like Spiderman, Ironman and The Hulk, to newcomers like Hancock and Wesley from Wanted, these heroes and heroines arrest our attention.
Why do these stories hold such power and capture our collective imagination? Because, behind all the hype - and behind every Superhero blockbuster - lies a timeless tale: the eternal tale that gives all these super-stories their power.
And that's the story of the hero's journey. It is the story - and promise - of realizing our own unrecognized greatness. Deep inside each of us, there is a knowledge - both a belief, and a calling - that we, too, have special "powers"... yes, our own super "powers" - the unique gifts and talents that only we possess and are able to share with the world.
And if we don't share them, the world won't have them. That's the transcendent story behind all the Superhero tales ... a story we instantly recognize and identify as our own.
Sure, we all have flaws, as does Hancock (who drinks too much, before finding his way back to his true purpose), and we may be frustrated like the Hulk (who must learn to control and focus his power). Or, perhaps, as is most common, we may not even realize the amazing gifts that lie inside us, just waiting for us to discover and share them with the world - as is the case with the young hero Wesley, in Wanted (who was living a cubicle-contained life before he found a guide to reveal his true powers).
But each of us - that's right, every single one of us - has a greatness within us. So, I ask you:
What is your Superpower?
Really, take a moment. Think about it. (Hint: If you really think about it, you'll probably realize you possess more than one.)
SECRETS OF SUPERPOWER SUCCESS
Keys to discovering your greatness (your "Superpowers"):
2010 is opening a new field of potentials for you to leap - and live - beyond limit. Like every Superhero who's gone before you, you want to ascend beyond a mere "job." You want to make your unique mark and, more than that, you want to make a difference in the world.
What's YOUR Superpower, Pinkies? What natural gifts do you possess? How might your powers help you co-create a life you love living? What makes you special? Do tell...
