If I go crazy then will you still call me superman?

“When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.”-Unknown

“Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.”-Robert C.Gallagher

Well happy Sunday and here is your second official Sunday Quotes post. This week I decided to go with two short and sweet quotes that pack an important meaning.

Think about the number of times in a day you say I _______ (can’t, won’t, don’t, shouldn’t…) I know I myself am extremely guilty of this. All of that negativity affects you more than you think it does. A lot of the times we are our own biggest enemies and bring ourselves down. If you are so persistent upon setting those limits for yourself then you are already selling yourself short. Then it’s not even that someone is telling you: you can’t, you’re digging a hole for yourself. Not to say that we should all don superhero capes, get cool nicknames and focus on channeling our superhero powers. But why not realize that individually we have a lot more power than we think. Who else knows you better than you? Sounds like a stupid question, but you know what bothers you, what makes you angry, what makes you happy, your guilty pleasures and how you really feel. Don’t let doubt win all your battles and focus your energy on trusting your instinct more. You are infinitely more powerful and capable than you let yourself believe.

Everyone always says change is inevitable…blah blah blah. I thought this second quote was a funny take on the same cliché quote. Unfortunately, as cliché and annoying as that quote might be its true. Change is everywhere: you change your hair, the people you’re friends with change, what you enjoy doing changes, the music you rock out to changes, political policy changes and ultimately the world changes each and every day. If change is supposed to be so commonplace, why do we fear it? The reason we fear change is we lose that familiar, comfortable foothold we have and all of a sudden we are left to figure out how to climb the rest of the way. Some people say change is good…in retrospect usually, but at the time it’s difficult to see why. Change is a tricky enemy to have in your life, a shape shifter of sorts that you can sometimes anticipate coming like a stampede headed your direction and sometimes it’s even more subtle like a gust of wind. The best defense you have against change is to not let it knock you down. Some of the best and most successful people in this world are not necessarily the most intelligent, but adapt remarkably well to changing times and conditions.

So the next time change comes along as you know it will, whether good or bad. Take a deep breath, find your footing and tackle it the best way you know how because you are capable of dealing with it, after all you’re a superhero in disguise.

*Just thought it would be a cute addition that might put a smile on your face 🙂
