Teen Super Powers‏

5 Super Powers Available to Teens
Heroic Abilities Aren’t Exclusive to Comics, Novelist Says

Cynical adults may sneer when they say, “Youth is wasted on the
young.” But young world-traveler Ryan Pearson sees a more positive
message in George Bernard Shaw’s often repeated quote.

“I see it as meaning that youth is an opportunity to seize direction,
enlightenment, significance and to expand one’s powers,” says Pearson,
author of “Green Hope” from “The Element Series,”
(www.theelementsseries.com), about a teenager blessed with wealth and
fame who discovers he has the added responsibility of super powers.

“It’s sad that so many teens get sidetracked by trying to fit in with
a crowd, or worrying that they don’t measure up somehow. At a time
when they should be enjoying a new sense of independence and
capabilities, they’re often paralyzed by self-doubt.”

Pearson says all teens have super powers – they just need to recognize them:

• Your inner “mutant”: Many teens like to make a big deal out of not
caring what others think about them, precisely because they care about
what everyone thinks of them. This can make them sensitive and anxious
about how they express themselves and what they enjoy, from what they
wear to the music they like to the grades they earn. Embrace what sets
you apart! No one else in the world is quite like you. Explore your
interests and find what you love – whether or not it’s what other
teens love. You’ll get a head start on developing valuable skills.

• “Punisher” fitness training: You don’t have to be built like the
renowned vigilante from the Marvel universe, but you’ll look your best
– and feel your best – if you establish a good exercise routine now.
Not only will working out give you a nice physique, it’s a good way to
reduce stress and it even gives you a natural high thanks to the
release of endorphins, chemicals that make your brain happy.

• Batman’s first rule in fighting: Despite the fact that it would make
his crime fighting much, much easier, the Caped Crusader absolutely
refuses to use guns. That’s because a deranged criminal with a gun
shot and killed Bruce Wayne’s parents when he was a child. The result
is that his fighting methods are more moral and creative, and he
always knows what to do when a quick decision is needed. Getting into
the habit of making your own decisions based on your values and your
understanding of right or wrong, instead of following the crowd, will
help make even the hardest choices easier.

• Cultivate your “spidey” senses: Teens are naturally impatient,
impulsive and impetuous. Slow down! Take your time on the road, in
relationships, during confrontations and when contemplating big
decisions. Part of why Spider-Man is so fast is that time slows for
him during tense situations. Likewise, teens who can slow down
emotionally-driven decisions and better understand their consequences,
much like a “spidey” sense, will make wiser ones.

• Know your kryptonite: Some kids just seem to have it all: academic
excellence, athletic accomplishments, popularity, and a clear
complexion to boot. But everyone has their limits, like Superman’s
kryptonite. Knowing your limits and learning how to worked around
them, or strengthen them, is a lifelong challenge for everyone.
