When I was a little girl, I was crazy about reading comic books. I remember spending all my weekly allowance buying them and then rushing back home. There were always piles of my favorite comics, Superman, Spiderman, and Phantom, on the bench by our kitchen table. My brother and I fought over who would read the newest book during lunch.
It was so cool to have superpowers! Superheroes had these unique powers possessed either by birth or acquired later on via an unfortunate accident. Although they made using their powers seem so easy, they were not born as superheroes but just as beings with higher potential. What unlocked their potential was the situations they got themselves in, the challenges they faced, and the choices they made. Once they transformed their potential, they then became superheroes and served for greater good. How rewarding!
I no longer read comic books; however, two questions have remained with me since my childhood:
- Does every child have a superior potential they may or may not be aware of?
- Is there a way to identify that superior potential?
