Be Just Like Superman
I am a big fan of Superman. Like who wouldn’t be? He is a good guy, not just good in what he does but an all around nice guy. But he had bad days like the all of us mere humans do.
What did Superman do to manage his stress? Where did he go? Who did he turn to?
Superman had a Fortress of Solitude. His fortress was a place where the cares of this world didn’t follow him. He could be himself. He could hang up his cape and talk with those he loved.
Superman also had Lois Lane to turn to when things were going downhill. When Superman was with Lois, he could be Clark Kent. He didn’t have to be or do anything special with her. They were a team, they helped each other. Lois was the one who often hid the kryptonite from Superman. He often rescued Lois from danger. Who is your Lois Lane? Who can you team up with?
Superman spent time in his Fortress of Solitude. Superman had Lois Lane.
Superman didn’t live a fairytale where it was all sunshine and rainbows. In fact, he thrived on catastrophes and near world disasters. That is until Kryptonite came out. His biggest source of stress, the thing that weakened him most was Kryptonite.
Now what is your kryptonite? Superman could do extraordinary things but he could easily be turned into a pile of helplessness by being exposed to kryptonite. What makes you lose all your senses when it comes to food? Where do you find yourself always giving in to things that won’t help you get to your health and fitness goals?
Write it down.
Identify your superpower/s when it comes to food. Fill in this statement:
My superpower is ______________________.
Your follow up statement will be:
I will put away/lock up my kryptonite which is _________________.
Remember, I can help you. I can be your Lois Lane. If you are stuck, let me help you get unstuck.
Each day, consistently employ your superpower/s and every day have a strategies to keep your kryptonite locked up.
To your best health,
