Kryptonite is a fictional substance best known as SuperMan’s weakness. It’s a special rock that, when held, makes his eyes blurry and knees buckle. Kryptonite diminishes the super in SuperMan. You have kryptonite too. You have weaknesses that sap your strength and shut you down. What are they? In this episode Cara tenderly names her kryptonite — self-doubt — and how it has plagued her for years. She gets real and challenges you to do so too.
As she play with her new challenge, she identifies three steps to analyzing self-doubt. Give them a try.
- Name a weak pattern that is holding you back from doing what you really want to do.
- Sit down with it and have a grown up conversation.
- Explore what this weakness feels like when it takes hold of you. For example, my gut clenches, I get hot, my throat closes etc.
As Cara explains, getting real about our weaknesses is the direct path to being free of them. Find the courage to see your kryptonite today. Name them out loud. Get to know what they feel like in your body and mind.
Drop your kryptonite today and you may well feel like putting on your cape and flying.
Onward and upward.
