Superpowers & Captain Hook

In Mind by Caleb

Turn your limitation into a superpower.

Nicknames can make or break a person. “Gary the Great” is more empowering than “Goofy Gary,” and will have an impact—for good or bad. (Only call people by empowering names!)

Captain Hook is famous for his missing hand and the crude metal tool that replaced it. On the surface, the nickname “Hook” probably started as a dig. But Captain Hook turned it into a superpower, striking fear in the minds of both friends and enemies.

What limitation, weakness, or association is in need of reframing?

How might you take a “disadvantage” and turn it into a strength?
