What seven-year-old hasn’t jumped off the couch in the family room trying to fly like Superman? I know I did, and I’m sure many of you did too. We all want to be superheroes when we’re young. It takes us out of the realm of homework, chores, bedtime – the realities of childhood – into a world of fantasy, where anything and everything is possible. You may not be seven years old anymore, but a part of you still wants to be a superhero. And you know what’s so exciting? You are!

You don’t have to ‘leap tall buildings in a single bound’, have X-ray vision, or super strength to be a superhero. You’re a superhero when you deliver a life insurance claim check to a grieving widow. You’re a superhero when you take time to help protect the lives of a young husband and wife and their growing family. You’re a superhero when you bring the Opportunity of a Lifetime to a man or woman who has been unemployed for six months and is struggling to pay the mortgage.
It’s so rewarding to watch that new recruit become a superhero too. Tell them you believe in them, and they will believe in themselves. Tell them they can make a difference for their customers, themselves, and their families and they will make a difference. Tell them they are great, and they will be great. And then show them how to achieve those goals!
You’ve heard the old saying, ‘Attitude is everything’. I can’t emphasize enough how true that statement is. We’ve all heard or seen examples of individuals who achieved greatness under the most unlikely circumstances. It was sheer grit and determination that helped them to reach their goals and live their dreams. The most important distance we have to successfully navigate is that five inches between our ears. Superhero status is potentially in every new recruit; we only have to bring it out. If they believe they can achieve, they will achieve.
If They Believe They Can Achieve, They Will Achieve!
The fantasy of being a superhero when you were seven years old is many years behind you. But the reality of being a superhero in the here and now is right in front of you. The things you do every day that may seem routine can be life-changing for others. It’s all a question of perspective, isn’t it? You can make a difference. You can make the world a better place. You can make your dreams a reality. When you bring the Opportunity of a Lifetime to others, you are the ultimate superhero … and you don’t even have to put on the cape and tights!
