I have yet to see the Batman vs. Superman movie that just opened, so there is no need to worry about a “spoiler” here.
I’ve always been a Superman fan. Who wouldn’t be? Here’s a super hero that is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. What’s there not to like? He is seemingly invincible. There’s only one thing that he can’t overcome…kryptonite. That mysterious thing that isn’t readily available on earth, yet often shows up in the hands of villains just in time to weaken our hero. Fortunately, Superman always finds a way to overcome and save the day and of course, Lois Lane.
What’s your kryptonite?
It’s comical how this term has become synonymous with a blatant weakness over the decades since the emergence of the “man of steel.” It is referenced when someone seemingly invincible must overcome their fatal fault, failing, or flaw. There seems to be a thought that even the best of us has our own kryptonite.
Here’s the deal – we do all have weaknesses and failings, however the biggest one for any of us is our own lack of discipline. We all have some amazing talent that can be thwarted by this “kryptonite.” While flying, x-ray vision, and unpenetrable strength may not be our super powers; our knowledge, skills, and innate talents will remain unfulfilled if we allow our kryptonite – our lack of discipline – to unhinge us.
You have a chance to be a super hero daily both professionally and personally. You know the seemingly small, yet important behaviors and activities needed to accomplish this. Don’t let gravitational pull (your arch enemy) drag you down. Leap your own tall buildings by mastering your daily discipline.
