It’s been an interesting week, if I do say so myself, and for I just want to take this time to wrap up the series on Superheroes.

We started of by asking if you would be the next superhero, after which we took a look at 6 different superheroes – Batman, Spiderman, The Green Lantern, Superman, The X-Men and finally, Teeny Little Super Guy.

Personally, I’ve gained a lot from writing this series. It’s got me thinking in new ways. And so, here’s a final roundup of the 10 lessons which will (hopefully) get you on the path to being the next superhero.

Lesson 1: You don’t need special skills to be a superhero, you just need to make the most of what you do have. (from Batman, and Teeny Little Super Guy)

Lesson 2: Be sensitive to what is going on around you, and respond quickly.

Lesson 3: Make the world’s problems your problems, take personal responsibility for it. (from Spiderman)

Lesson 4: Willpower and imagination are crucial to success.

Lesson 5: Don’t avoid fear. Embrace it and learn to overcome it. (from the Green Lantern)

Lesson 6: Even as you be a superhero, be equally human. The two can, and should, coexist. (from Superman)

Lesson 7: Find people who complement what you can do and work together. Teamwork is very powerful.

Lesson 8: Learn control – when to hold back, when to push forward, and how far to push.

Lesson 9: Take the risk of being despised for being different, even to the extent of helping those who despise you. (from The X-Men)

Lesson 10: Being a superhero doesn’t have to be a big thing, it’s just about making a difference in someone else’s life. (from Teeny Little Teeny Super Guy)

10 simple lessons. Being a superhero isn’t too complicated. But it’s not easy either. The lessons we’ve discussed might be simple, but they require a lot of effort and dedication to pull off effectively. But if you’ve got the passion for it, I believe these 10 lessons will get you on your way to being a superhero.

Will you take that step out to make a difference? Will you be a superhero?
