Most people have four or five major strengths, but let's start with one to make it easier to know how to find your superpower.
WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THAT MOMENT THAT WAS EASY?
The answer is often this—it came naturally. You were empathetic towards someone because it feels like second nature. You did an incredible painting because it felt as if the strokes were being controlled by an unseen hand. You were in your element problem solving because it just made sense. You loved teeing up the family to spring clean your house because organisation of tasks and people is like fitting puzzle pieces together.
Write down what you've found.
What you've found is your superpower.
To hone it even further, you could ask what makes you fearless, what you can see more clearly than other people, and what truly amazes others about you. For me, it's communication and connection. I find connecting with people effortless.
On the flip side, organisation is not my superpower—more my kryptonite!
Roll your superhero power around in your head and see how it sits with you. You'll realise it's something inherently within you that you didn't have to do anything to get.
When you accept that and focus on it and bring it more to life, you're able to live with even more passion and fulfilment and purpose.
