What puts the Super and Hero in Superhero?
The rules about what makes a superhero are pretty flexible. But at the core, all superheroes are driven by a purpose—and that purpose empowers them to gain control over events (usually caused by bad people) that take place in their life. They use their powers to impose order on a chaotic world.
Some are born that way.
For example, Wonder Woman—her mission is to bring peace and love back into humanity’s heart. She defends humanity with her Amazon training—which has given her superior strength, speed, and agility. She can fly and is trained in hand-to-hand combat. She also had the ability to talk to animals. In addition to her natural superpowers, she has some great gear, too!
Some are not.
By contrast, there’s Batman: he’s an ordinary mortal who became a superhero through discipline and determination and commitment. He has no real “superpowers,” he’s a human being hellbent on a mission.
Which proves our point.
Superheroes have a purpose that empowers them to control and respond to the events in their life—for their benefit and to benefit others.
Can you gain superhero powers?
If there was a class that taught you to become a superhero, it would start with helping you to create and define your purpose or mission, and then teach you how to control the events in your life—in order to manifest that purpose.
Without purpose and control, you’re weak. With purpose and control, you can be stronger than you ever imagined.

Why start with purpose?
Purpose pulls. It’s what compels you to do, to create, to explore, and discover.
When you have a sense of purpose, you never get up in the morning wondering what you’re going to do with yourself. When you’re “in purpose” –that is, engaged with and working towards your purpose—life becomes easier, less complicated, and less stressful.
Why define your purpose?
All of life is a series of choices and journeys. Defining and articulating your personal purpose or mission will help you decide which road you will take.
Make sure this statement of purpose addresses not just desires for material well-being and prosperity, but more importantly, your humanity—who you are and what you stand for as well as what you are willing to fight for or walk away from.
PlanPlus Online has the Discover Your Why guide. A step-by-step experience designed to help you discover What is Your Why? What Are Your Core Values? What Roles Do You Fill? And What Do You Want to Achieve?
This is part of the Vision Board found under your Planning tab of your own PlanPlus Online account.
Next, comes controlling events.
If you can manage your time, you can control what events occur in your life, and because you’ve discovered your purpose, you can know how to respond to events that occur outside your control!
Your personal self-value has a direct bearing on your ability to accomplish your wishes in life. Your self-esteem is enhanced when you are in control of events and it suffers when you are not in control.
How is planning the key to event control?
Because planning is predetermining future events. It’s bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now—and that’s a superhero power! Time management is controlling events one after the other.
Understanding this real nature of events going on around you is essential to prioritizing them appropriately and bringing them under control.
Your PlanPlus Online account guides you through your weekly and daily planning to ensure that you’re always working on what’s most important to your purpose.
