What is your Superpower? – part 2

October 23, 2008

Continued from “What is your Superpower – part 1

To me, The Incredibles is not about some super-humans who go about saving the world because they have extraordinary powers. They all have to overcome their perceived limitations and the limitations placed on them by a society that is only comfortable with mediocrity. Once they allow themselves to be who they really are, they start gaining self-confidence by embracing their individuality. In embracing the thing that makes them “different” they find that their unique attributes are their greatest strengths. Only upon embracing their uniqueness do they claim their true power and start to trust themselves to know what the right thing is to do in any given moment.

We all have attributes that set us apart from others. We all have unique characteristics that make us who we are. The Incredibles is not about some other-worldly super-human people, it is about embracing the self and believing in yourself to be and do what is right in every moment. It is about trusting your instincts and not stepping on your own foot. Most importantly, not giving a hoot about anyone else’s opinions about who you should be, what you should do or how you should act.
