I just read a great blog post at Nerdfitness.com. It’s about picking a super hero persona…one to help you power through your goals.
“Make the superhero version of yourself do all of the things that you’re afraid of or struggling with. Why? Because superheroes attack problems in way different ways than a normal cubicle dweller. That’s why they exist – to do stuff that ordinary people can’t.”
I love this idea. When I feel too tired to workout, my super hero won’t, when I’m discouraged, my super hero will be thinking of ways to solve problems and save the world. Kind of like an imaginary friend, but better…because it isn’t imaginary. It is just me.
I like “The Magnet” — attracting needed energy and resources. What do you think? Who will you choose?
