The everyday superhero

I’m always amazed at shows where there’s a masked hero and no one recognizes him or her. 

How is it possible that none of their closest friends and family figure it out?

No wonder the job of a hero is lonely work. 

I guess that’s why every hero needs a sidekick. You gotta share that burden with someone, right?

We all have to grapple with this desire to be seen and recognized for our contributions. 

On the one side, there’s nothing wrong with giving credit where credit is due. 

On the other side, doing something out of a self-seeking, look at me attitude is a bad idea. 

And I think that’s why encouraging others is one of my favorite things to do. 

Just by paying attention you can brighten someone’s day. You also help that individual see things they are overlooking about themselves. 

Don’t miss out on an opportunity to encourage the people around you. 

You never know when one small act of kindness can save the day. 

I’m a firm believer that encouragement is a super power.

  1. I think what you wrote was actually very reasonable. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you
    added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean The everyday
    superhero | audra gayle is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles to get viewers to
    open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get
    readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

    • Ernest, how did you find my blog? Just interested. I try to add pictures, but I’ve been preparing to move and I haven’t taken the time to find any. That’s my bad.

      Thanks for the advice.

  3. Admiring the persistence you put into your website and in depth information you present.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of
    date rehashed information. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked
    your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
