(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


Tony Stark awakens each day as …. Tony Stark. He then puts on a persona and acts as Iron Man.

Superman awakens each day as …. Superman. He doesn’t need the Clark Kent persona to be who he really is.

One is an internal frame of reference, the other is external.

One is authentic, the other an image.

Inherent power versus manufactured.

Superman versus Iron Man.


Coaching Point: Do you awaken as your real superman/superwoman and live your day as a full expression of You? Or do you awaken as someone who puts on a ‘suit’ in order to perform?
