Is there a downside? Yes, as with all great powers, the superpower is difficult to acquire. And even for many people who discovery the secret, they often fail to utilize the power. Furthermore, it is easily misused. Here’s why.
#1. Easy To Use
Because it’s so easy to do, it’s also so easy not to do.
#2. No Pain
Because your superpower doesn’t involve a lot of pain, you might not notice that it’s working. Maybe you won’t even notice the butterfly landing on your shoulder.
#3. No Major Transformation
Some people want to be heard.
#4. No Costume Required
Some people want to be seen
#5. No Special Instruction or Teacher Required
Some people want to be told what to do.
#6. No Permission Required
Sometimes we’re conditioned to wait for a “go-ahead.”
#7. You Don’t Need An Assistant
“What?” you say. “You mean I gotta’ go alone?”
#8. Not Complicated
When it comes to superpowers, often the simple gets overlooked.
#9. Minimal Time Required
How can it be a superpower and not take decades to acquire?
#10. No Cost
Runs counter to the advice of “you get what you pay for?”
Let me explain. Better yet. Let me demonstrate the misuse of the superpower.
No need to stand back this time.
Let’s say you start with just one of something. Could be one pullup, or one dollar or one idea. Now, don’t apply your power, but rather let it decrease just 1%.
Now it goes without saying, that a 1% decrease is very very small. It’s 99 nickels lying around instead of a 100 nickels laying around (superheroes love Thomas Jefferson, and he’s on the nickel).
And if you allow things to micro decrease just 1% each day for a year… that 1 will have decreased to 0.03 in just a year.
Just as your superpower of +1% holds the key that can lead you to the greatness you were destined to lead, if your superpower is applied negatively at -1%, it will lead to mediocrity and disappointment.
And that is your superpower that will let you transform just about anything you want.
I’m glad you finally know the truth.
Good luck in whatever you choose to do in life. In whatever arena you choose to use your superpower.
I leave you with the words of Commissioner James Gordon from Batman. “You’re going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.”
