On Rediscovering your Strengths: Why Your Superpowers are the First Step Towards Determining your Ikigai or Reason for Being

In today’s episode, we’re diving deep into practical strategies to identify and leverage your superpowers.

In this episode you will: 

  1. Identify Your Strengths: Pinpoint three tasks or skills that come naturally to you, setting the foundation for growth.
  2. Celebrate Your Wins: List the coolest aspects of yourself in a quick, insightful exercise that boosts self-confidence.
  3. Take Action: Explore real-world examples and actionable steps to effectively use your superpowers.

Here are specific exercises that Kavita shared during the episode which you can journal to help you identify your Strengths or Superpowers:

  1. List 3 things or tasks that you are really good at (ie. I am really good at putting together a financial statement)
  2. List 3 specific skills or talents you’ve developed that make you successful at what you do (ie. My mind has a natural ability to process the meaning behind the numbers) 
  3.  List the 10 coolest things about you. These can be experiences you’ve had (eg.running a marathon, skydiving), roles you play (eg. parent, sibling, best friend), skills or expertise (eg. speaking French fluently)
  4. Ask 3-5 people who know you well, “what do you think are my superpowers or zone of genius? What topic do you come to me for advice? “What do I do that you find of value?”
  5. Is there a common theme in their responses and do their answers align with your own assessment?
  6. Based on the superpowers that you’ve identified and others have shared, ask yourself: “Am I currently using my talents to the best of my ability?” “How can I use my talents or superpowers in a different way than I am using them right now that would make me more energized?”
