“Your life has purpose. You have unique talents and abilities – your own superpower. Once you figure out what that is you will be unstoppable.”
Let’s get this out of the way right now. Everyone, in a way, is broken. We all have a sob story. But despite our weaknesses and vices, we can become superhumans.
We just need to learn how to time travel. Sounds easy enough, right?
If you want to time travel, and ultimately, master your life, you must stop doing what everyone else is and start mastering time. Most people sells their time for liabilities; these are fleeting, temporary fixes to a life unrealized.
Superhumans are not most people.
Most people can’t miss their favorite show each night, give up their favorite junk food, or stop their favorite follies. Most people are time wasters. They don’t dream. They wish in vain.
They sell their time to the biggest thief of opportunity: Comfort.
It is more comfortable to watch your favorite Netflix series from 7 pm – 11 pm, or 12 pm, or sometimes even 2 am.
People will then be audacious enough to make this statement: “I don’t have time to really make my dreams a reality.” Wait… What.?! What about those 4-6 hours you just binge-watched 3 times this week?!
Just because you have finished your day of work does not mean your duties are done. If you are not working the job of your dreams, your duties must go far beyond the 9 to 5. Before and after. My most productive time is 5-9 and 8-11. Start making the adjustments.
Time is only transcended by going beyond your comfort zone regularly; beyond the security and ease of the norm.
For most, they will never overcome themselves, and truly time travel.
… but you are different. You will invest in time and build assets that will pay the price for time travel. You will become superhuman.
Superhumans are known by many titles: Master, Professional, Champion, World Class, Expert, Virtuoso, Superstar. Pioneer… and Time Traveler.
Time travelers and superhumans are one and the same. They are people that are able to go after their dreams in a way that they are able to get more done in their lifetime than others.
Benjamin Hardy, in his book Slipstream Time Hacking: How to Cheat Time, Live More, And Enhance Happiness, explains a theory of recording time in Distance rather than seconds, minutes or hours.
Instead of focusing on the amount of time you did something, focus on the result of how far you have traveled doing that thing, or how much you have accomplished in that allotted time.
“The goal isn’t an infinite quantity of time, but the highest quality of time.”
This is what superhumans do, they keep time traveling. Or in other words, they get more done in less time, faster and faster until they have accomplished more in a month than most people do in a year.
They travel further. They do more. They become more.
Superhumans have what is called “Creative Genius”, or the ability to unlock their ultimate superpowers. Not just the skills you have now, but transcending the skills so that they are only instruments of your vision.
They are creators of their own destiny. This requires unlocking the power of imagination.
Imagination is the lifeblood of humans, one of the few things that separate us from everything else.
Unlike most people, superhumans hold this gift precious above all else. Even above knowledge.
They are the ones that have tapped into their creative potential and disciplined themselves to realize it. They take smartcuts in their life.
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Mapping the Super Human Genome
*According to the definition:
-In modern molecular biology and genetics, a genome is the genetic material of an organism. The genome includes both the genes, (the coding regions), the noncoding DNA .
-A gene is a locus (or region) of DNA which is made up of nucleotides and is the molecular unit of heredity.
-Genomes are more than the sum of an organism’s genes and have traits that may be measured and studied without reference to the details of any particular genes and their products.”
I believe that, though our genes are hereditary, the genome trait that is universal is creativity.
We are all creators. Superhumans are then learned, not born.
What about the genomes of our potential? What can we imagine and create and co-create?
This is my life’s study, the superhuman genome. Becoming who we are destined to be.
My theory, therefore, is that we ALL have the ability to be superhuman time travelers.
The Superhuman Formula
(Time mastery + Consistency) x (Grand Vision + Execution) = Dream Realizers, Time Travelers, Superhumans
If you truly want to take control of your life and become a time traveler, you must consistently execute beyond the non-working hours.
Anyone can be productive with their time, but can they do it day after day? Anyone can dream up a grand vision, but what about executing it? It’s the day after day action steps, the simple executions accumulated over time that will liberate you and speed you up.
It is time to travel faster to your goals, your dreams, and the life you know you should be living; the real you, the you who you were destined to be.
What is it going to take? … Everything!
It starts with sucking up the pride and going back to the drawing board of learning.
Learning from everything from the best books to the most mundane aspects of life; making your life one full of searching for more growth and development, more skills, more strategies that will jumpstart you onto the right frequency.
Improvement versus development is an important distinction. We talk about self-improvement, but it’s important that we note that development should come first. Build the right foundation and then you can refine it along the way. Not the other way around.
We often focus on improving in multiple areas at once, but we get lost in consuming all that information and how nice it is to read and the way it makes us feel.
How many self-help books, great articles, and TedTalks have we read or listened to, only to have an overloaded mind of good intentions that have no room for action?
Unfortunately, this happens too often. An improper foundation is built, a foundation of multiple fragmented platforms, unfinished and unusable.
What ends up happening is that we have a vast majority of people with wells full of wishes, a head full of good intentions; highly knowledgeable, but not wise.
There is a proper way to develop yourself and then refine yourself to become a superhuman starting with doing what others don’t.
Love yourself. They love themselves first, not in a selfish way, but they know they must be at a higher place to lift others.
Wisdom vs Knowledge. They acquire wisdom rather than collect knowledge. Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge.
Character above all else. Character equals Integrity. Enough said.
Faith vs Belief. Faith is action-packed belief. If you believe it, do it. Do what you want to become.
Complete Passion. Their drive comes from knowing their deepest ‘Why.’ Why do you really do what you do, or ultimately want to do?
Imagination = Creative Genius. Imagination is creation at its core. When we imagine something, we invent or create something from nothing.
Methodically keep track of progress. This is one of the hardest things to do. To actually keep track of and measure what needs to be improved and what needs to be changed.
Do what others don’t. For example read more books than articles. Here is a good book list to start.
They are themselves. They aspire to be nothing but the best they can be. Themselves, not anyone else.
When you give everything, you get everything!
Becoming a superhuman is not impossible, and it’s not specified for the overachiever. It’s for the ones who want to live their dreams with balance during the time they have.
Everyone is so different and unique. Each need to follow their own path. Mapping the superhuman genome isn’t a simple process, but we are on our way to liberating the brave and the bold.
Even though our DNA may not be perfect, our soul, spirit, and the essence of who we truly are is.
“There is a treasure deep inside everyone, the adventure is to find it.”
Life is about removing the distractions, the clutter, the unimportant and even sometimes the good, to make way for greatness and to allow the treasure in us to shine through.
Only action can free you (or unlock you)
