Being aware of yourself is key in unleashing the power within. Richale R. Reed
“Having a superpower has nothing to do with the ability to fly or jump, or superhuman strength. The truest superpowers are the ones we all possess; willpower, integrity, and most importantly, courage,” says American author Jason Reynolds. How many people, including women, have these superpowers to dare and conquer the world?
Every one of us has their special unique gift, something we are born with. But how many of us do actually get to discover this gift at any point in our life? Many people do not, while others who do discover it, do little or nothing to harness it. According to transformational coach Richale Reed, it is really difficult for some people to say what they actually want to do, but she claims that it is one’s duty to understand one’s purpose.

Unleashing the power within to transform your life
Each of us is special in our own way, and so is our individual gift, the power within. It is the power you bring into the world. You can use that power to change the world; others have done it, then why cannot you? You may be unable to use your gift to change the world like others have done because you have yet to discover that gift. Once you do, you will be able to unleash the power within and conquer the world and write your name in gold.
Being aware of yourself is key, says Richale, in unleashing the power within. This is an awareness of your source, which is the authority over your life. “So, my source is God, right? So, I’m able to manage my life in the power that I have—the authority that I have—because I’m always connected to the Source,” she reveals. That is the only time she can hone the power within to unleash it and wield it effectively.
How to incorporate the power within you in times of crisis
We all experience crisis in our lives at one point or another, and we need to heal afterwards. Incorporating the power within us in our everyday life, especially during times of crisis, will help us achieve some sense of closure in trying moments. When there is crisis, do not waste time. Deploy your resources, have a backup plan, reduce the impact on others, swallow your pride, communicate with everyone, and get the right people in place.
Richale advises you to study your own perspective on crises and think about
all the crises you have lived through and how people come together across gender, racial, political, and religious boundaries. She believes that “there’s this power that happens even inside of the crisis that brings out the best in every one of us.”
How to build an empire using emotional intelligence
Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. But it is regrettable how this all-important skill is lacking in some people, something that can easily ruin a person’s life.
Richale underscores the importance of emotional intelligence and states that when you use your creativity as an adult, especially, you are continuing that evergreen process of developing yourself, and of manifesting your goals, your dreams, and your desires. “One of the most integral things about that is that as you do that you are building what we call emotional intelligence. And the reason that is really important is because emotional intelligence… will take you a whole lot further than even your IQ.”
How to train your mind for peace and purpose
To train your mind for peace and purpose, you must remove negativity from your life, decrease anxiety, uncover your purpose, and learn to live life
on your own terms; develop a daily routine, practice gratitude, teach your mind to focus, and develop stronger relationships.
Richale’s five tips to find your superpower
Richale’s five simple tips below will aid you in your quest to find your superpower as a woman:
- Be curious about the people you admire
Do you have people you admire in life? Write down their names and the reasons you look up to them. Then journal about the ways in which you exhibit these same qualities and try to recall when you have demonstrated them in the past. These qualities you wrote down might be key elements of your superpowers, because what we admire in others are usually core aspects of our own selves.
2. Identify what you do well
Make a list of what you do well. You will start to notice some patterns. You can go back to look at these patterns after a few weeks to find out what you enjoyed most, what yielded the best results, and what you felt was more important to you.
3. Discover your best achievements
List between five and ten of your proudest accomplishments, pick three to five you are most proud of or you enjoyed the most, and then journal about how you got the results, and what skills, strengths, or characteristics you drew upon. Go through the list and find patterns or common threads.
4. Follow the flow
Have you ever been so engrossed in something that you lost track of time? That is a good clue of where your superpower lies, and it makes sense to follow it.
5. Ask Someone else
If you are having a hard time believing that you even have any superpowers or you can’t figure out what they could possibly be, ask the people who know you well. Have them describe in three minutes what they like about you, the natural gifts they see in you, and what they think you do well. Review what they told you and look for patterns.

This year’s edition will focus on mind renewal and problem solving from the inside out by revealing, renewing, and replacing sabotaging thought patterns. Participants will also incorporate purpose, vision, and goal setting and achieving to accomplish their life’s calling, gaining clarity, increasing self- confidence, and manifesting their goals, dreams, and desires.

All in all, finding your superpower as a woman isn’t easy, says Richale, because it is a layered process, but she promises to help you discover it despite the complexity.
