Superheroes has been a big Media Marketing frenzy these days from the rise of the Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and now Wonder Woman. Why are we co captivated by these “superheroes”? Do we really feel like the world needs saving? The answer to this is a definite “Yes”. We all at times feel the need to be saved in all areas of our lives.
Nothing stirs our core more than the battle of good and evil and the rise of one single group/individual that sacrifices so much for the greater good. Inside, all of us want to be that superhero, but are we willing to sacrifice what will matter most to make a difference for the greater good?
In a marriage, will we sacrifice our need to be pampered to and praised upon to make the relationship work? We always feel the need to be right and speak our mind even though we know the outcome will not serve the relationship well. It is best to keep silent and compromise with your spouse so you can view the situation from all viewpoints, instead of selfishly trying to win the battle.
We all have good intentions in a relationship, whether it is with our spouse, friend, boss, co-worker or family but having good intentions alone will not make a shift or change in a relationship or situation. It needs to go beyond “good intentions”, because talk and discussion can only go so far but it is the “action” behind the “good intentions” that will propel you forward and make an impact in a relationship or situation.
The “Superhero’s” secret to saving the world and come out on top is having an “action” that serves your “good intentions”. Don’t let your good intentions not have an action, otherwise the good intention will change its purpose over time and turn into doubt, regret, and jealousy which will lead you astray , letting you think you are doing good in a relationship/situation but in actuality you may be causing more harm or adding more fuel to the fire.
As one superhero’s Motto goes:
Life doesn’t give us Purpose.
We give life Purpose.
