Have you heard the term “Starpower” before? I’m pretty sure that you have.
It’s that thing that makes people stand up, standout and shine.
The more that people are prepared to use their Starpower … the more they stand up, standout and shine.
Now you may be thinking, who are these people?
Are they Movie Actors? Are they Pop stars? Are they famous Entrepreneurs?
Yes and No. Yes they are but No …
Today, I’m talking about You.
You may not see yourself as a headline act but you can be, in your own way.
Authentic Starpower is what it’s all about and it’s what you have.
This is about being Real. This is about being You and showcasing your talents to the max.
Is it your smile? Is it your attention to detail? Is it your passion? Your way with words, maybe?
your focus? your influencing power? your leadership? your creativity? your positivity? your thinking? your outside the box type thinking? your friendliness? your magnetism? your attitude? or any other number of attributes that you have.
Comparison is not the game you should be playing.
This is your Starpower that I am talking about here and you play the game by your rules.
You stand up and you shine in your own light.
When people go through Life trying to be someone else, then their Starpower fades.
They become a shadow, constantly chasing someone else’s star.
And I don’t want that to happen to You.
If you are not doing this already, then it’s time to stand up and believe in what you have to offer … to yourself and to others.
Polish what you have until it’s all shiny and sparkly and then go show it off.
How you show it off is up to you of course. However once you convince yourself of your starpower, then showing it off really becomes the easy part.
This will come naturally, though not without effort . True confidence in one’s own abilities needs to be developed before it finds a way to shine through. It may not be obvious, it may be difficult at first, but it cannot be denied.
Here’s 3 Starpower strategies:
Compare yourself with no one
There is only one You and you are meant to be yourself in the best possible way.
Believe in your Capabilities
You have them in spades. Some may not be obvious initially, they may need a little digging into or developing. However, find them and use them.
Be a “Show off”
Starpower is no good if it remains hidden. Find the best way to showcase your talents and share what you have.
I believe that You can do this.
