#0071: Becoming a Superhero When Danger Occurs

Have you ever wondered what its like to be a superhero and have super-human powers?

Imagine having the ability to run extremely fast, lift heavy objects with no trouble, or save people from harm’s way.  Man, if only that could happen in real life…

Oh wait a minute – it DOES!

The human body is an amazing creation.  When we’re in our conscious mind, we may be able to rationally accept that there are certain actions we cannot do. 

But lo and behold: when a person’s body is under attack from outside forces, it can manage to become almost superhuman in an effort to save itself.

For example, you might be out of shape and think the idea of trying to run at fast speeds is beyond your ability.  However, if you see a pitbull running towards your crotch, chances are you’ll take off running than a track runner on steroids!

And what about all those stories you hear about Moms who appear to be soft and puny, yet are able to lift up cars if their child somehow manages to get under one? Or those reports of people running into burning buildings to save a pet or a loved one – and they aren’t even fire-fighters!

Yes, we may all appear to be like Clark Kent on the outside, in our regular everyday lives… but when danger strikes and no one else is around to do the job, it’s astounding to see what you can really do when you don’t think and just ACT.  All you need is a cape and a utility belt, and you’re good to go!

Ah, becoming a superhero when danger occurs… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
