Superhero or Alter-ego?

More on a superhero theme. Many of the well known ‘superheroes’ have a kind of alter-ego. Superman has Clark Kent, Spiderman has Peter Parker, Wonder Woman has Diana Prince. Some of these individuals come across as weak and vulnerable- very human – but they also hide the superhero, who they ‘become’ as necessity arises. Consider, though, it is the superhero who is the ‘real’ person. The alter-ego is just the disguise.

How true this is for us too! We so often wear a disguise. Perhaps for many reasons, we portray a false self who hides the ‘real’ person. As a coach, I absolutely believe each person is wonderfully made, creative, resourceful, a masterpiece with powerful potential waiting to be fully unlocked. There is a hero in each of you.
