You know Clark Kent is basic af, right? aaand also, he.is. Super•f*cking•man.
Our minds are mysterious and completely illogical. We can easily fancy ourself blue collar Clark, but ask a mofo to become a superhero and hell nah!
We operate like Clark. Thing is, poor Clark, he is never gonna get it done.
Think about brand names and products you love and how they make you feel when you, "put em on". Some new kicks, a poppin lip color, some new shit that's f!re, and suddenly our confidence is radiating out to the world like we have an S on our chest.
Having a Superhero alter ego isn't something we have to, "play pretend" or "make believe".
He, She, Him, Her, It, They, Them-
is/are already all up inside there-
Perhaps, we just haven't taken notice.
And, "where attention goes: energy flows". Why waste our energy, our most valuable currency, on thoughts aka supervillans that are: unrealistic, unproductive, and self defeating when the same energy can be transformed into our s u p e r-p o w e r(s)?
What if occupying our thoughts, through the perspective of our heroic alter ego takes: less effort, less energy and is wayyy more f*cking fun? Well,it is. And contrary to what one may believe: wayyy more productive.
Look, Clark is a great guy. He's gonna open the door for you, he's gonna buy you a coffee but, Super•f*cking•man is gonna, uhm, flyyy, for one, hell0. Can you think of anything more symbolic of freedom?
He's gonna defend some sh*t, stand for some sh*t, and make some sh*t happen.
Embrace your superhero.
Embody your superpower(s).
