As a continuation of my previous post, I’ll be doing a short series on Superheroes this week. I’ll be taking a look at a few of the fictional Superheroes in pop culture, and examining the lessons we can learn from them in the quest to be the next superhero of our world.

So, on to the superhero for today – Batman. I’m starting with him because I think it’s a really important lesson, and something we should grasp right from the start.

Batman is a superhero without any powers per se. He’s a normal guy, but he makes the most of his intelligence and the skills he has in order to succeed. He makes full use of the equipment at his disposal as well, his utility belt being an essential part of his costume.

And I think that’s the first thing we have to learn. The potential to be a superhero is in every one of us. You don’t have to be born with a superpower. You don’t need to have god-gifted abilities. All you need to do is have a willingness to take what you have, and make the most of it. Develop your skills and make the most of whatever equipment you have. That’s all it takes to be a superhero.

Lesson 1: You don’t need special skills to be a superhero. You just need to be willing to develop and make the most of what you have. Anyone can be a superhero, if you want to.

Are you making the most of the skills you have?
