The Superpower System
Finding your superpower shouldn't be your life's work. Using it should be. -Tomi Llama
Welcome to the first step along your superpower journey. The Superpower System was created from my fierce need to answer "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?". I searched high and low trying to answer life’s most compelling questions, I read thousands of books, attended hundreds of seminars, and gained too many certifications looking for answers. The superpower system is the end result of my 20-year existential crisis of losing myself, finding myself, losing myself again, and finding myself again (Rinse. Repeat.). The Superpower System is a proven method for discovering the true, authentic self.
For so many of us, we spend our whole lives searching for who we are supposed to be, what our purpose is, and what we are supposed to be doing in the world. I think that life shouldn’t be spent finding your purpose. I think it should be spent living it. And your superpower is at the center of that.
The path to discovering and growing your superpower is a journey of know yourself, grow yourself, and clear yourself. Each of these parts of the superpower system can help you live more wholly, purposefully, and authentically. It is an adventure of epic proportions that is sometimes a lonely journey and an overwhelming journey. You don’t have to walk the path alone. Each aspect of this journey has a dedicated llama to help you carry the load.
The know yourself phase of the Superpower System is about finding what makes you unique in the world. What you have to offer the world that no one else can is your superpower.
Dictionary.com defines a superpower as “power greater in scope or magnitude than that which is considered natural or has previously existed.” It is the thing that is irrevocably you. It is the one thing that you do like no one else.
Your superpower exists at the intersection of three things: your values, your strengths, and your social currency.
Your values let you know what is important to you, your strengths let you know what you are best at, and your social currency is what you bring to the table in your interactions with others. Knowing these aspects of yourself allows you to live authentically and gives you a jumping off point for pursuing a fulfilling and purposeful life.
Self-discovery is not always an easy process, and it can take a while to become accustomed to being your biggest and most superpowerful you. That’s where growing yourself comes in.
You can begin to cultivate a deeper understanding of all that you are. It is the process of using specific tools that allow you to step fully into your superpower and all its accompanying gifts.
The grow yourself stage of the Superpower System can be further divided into four components:
Values based decision making
Don’t poke the bear
Tracking your growth
Ah yes, my favorite part of the system. You know who you are, and you are pushing forward! You are stepping into your biggest you! And then old stories rise up and try to bring you back down.
Clear yourself has to do with working through those different stories and traumas that have silently ruled our lives or locked us in repeating patterns that are self-defeating.
The clear yourself stage of the superpower system revolves around taking a dive into what I like to call your scrap heap (it's the baggage we carry everywhere we go).
There are three parts to the scrap heap: the emotional scrap heap, the intellectual scrap heap, and the energetic scrap heap. Clearing yourself can be a bit scary, because we face ourselves and say, "I am ready to step into something bigger" and work through that.
