13. Act in spite of fears. You may not need to save New York City from an alien invasion, but you still have things you might be afraid of in your life. Whether you’re afraid of commitment, heights, or speaking in front of a crowd, acknowledge the fear and overcome it so you can blast through your stumbling blocks and mental obstacles.
14. Plan less. It might seem counterproductive, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed, ditch your schedule and to-do list! Just focus on the next thing you have to accomplish. You’ll feel more powerful and motivated when you can celebrate each micro-win and then move on to the next project instead of stressing about what you have left to do.
15. Be authentic. While comic-book superheroes use masks to protect them, hiding behind metaphorical masks in your own life won’t help you feel empowered. Instead, try saying what you feel, when you feel it. Be 100 percent authentically you! Connect with who you really are and be brave enough to share that with those around you. This kind of freedom can motivate and empower you to take on your biggest challenges, knowing that at the end of the day, you’ve done the best you could.
