Admit it: you want to be a superhero. You have read the comic books all your life, dreamt about donning a cape and saving those in need, and have your alter ego already named. Okay, maybe you have not gone that far (or maybe you have- that is quite alright), but you want to feel more in control of your life, more confident, more empowered to make your life yours. Wherever you fall on the ‘wanting to be a superhero’ spectrum, this is the book for you.
Sage Michael has created a guide that is fun, entertaining, and downright inspiring, with How to Become a Superhero. Drawing on all the superhero stereotypes, this book delivers an easy-to-follow and concise plan as to how to become the masked avenger you have always wanted to be (without the literal mask, or course). Yes, Michael does explain and warn against the pitfalls of becoming a villain- sorry, guys. He covers it all, from visiting your oracle to establishing your superhero identity to choosing what your super powers will be.
Of course, the superhero model and creation is somewhat metaphorical. Before you get too excited and run out to buy your spandex suit and a really cool matching cape and mask, you need to harness your inner superhero. This is not only a fun venture into the creation of comic book characters, this is a step-by-step guide to finding the powers inside yourself. By the end of the book, you will be given all the tools you need to conquer whatever you have always wanted. Whether it be becoming more confident, starting your own business, or just figuring out what may be holding you back from goals you wish to achieve, the tips and tricks are all here. Just be careful- by the end, you may find a whole new you.
How to Become a Superhero is a fun and easy guide that is by far the coolest self-help/motivational book around. It is simple to follow and understand, and it is easy to see that there are real results if you follow from beginning to end. It is time to stop Hulking out when things do not go your way; it is time to stop staying on the sidelines like Robin and embrace your inner Batman instead. So, suit-up and start reading.
This book can be purchased at Amazon.com, as well as your local independent bookseller.
