Show Notes


  • One person can make a difference
  • Discovering and developing your superpowers so you can make a difference
  • Just having a superpower doesn’t make you a superhero—have to use it to save the day
  • How do you want to be remembered?


  • With great power comes great responsibility!
  • Responsibility to wield it in service
  • With great responsibility comes great power: the ability to makes things right
  • When we take responsibility for what we focus on, what things mean, owning actions mistakes, and being accountable, we find great power
  • You are responsible for what you do and the results you get from it
  • Imagination is more powerful than knowledge
  • Ability to create: taking the invisible and making it visible
  • Unlocking the power of creativity and imagination: everything you see is the result of somebody’s imagination
  • Everything begins in the mind: have a vision, set a standard and create the world the way you want it to be
  • Wayne Dyer: “it’s not you’ll believe it when you see it, it’s you’ll see it when you believe it”
  1. PLAY
  • We grow older because we stop playing
  • If you want to be a fast learner, take a lesson from children—they play all the time and are quick learners
  • Age of mind and heart, not chronological age
  • Stan was an incredibly young person: making jokes, going to events, making playful cameos, telling stories, always learning and playing
  • Not just you searching for your passion—your passion might also be looking for you
  • Having a passion will relate to and determine your mindset
  • Stan was passionate about storytelling, creativity, learning, his wife and unity: mutual love and respect
  • To find your passion, novelty can help along the way to keep things light and interesting: Stan kept a lot of interesting things in his office to stimulate his creativity
  • Stan used his passion for storytelling to make a difference
  • Stan said having the ability to be lucky would be the ultimate superpower
  • Hate is the supervillain, ability to spread love, unity, and hope as Stan did is the ultimate superpower—which the world really needs right now
  • Used his characters (his passion) for his purpose (spreading positive messages)
  • School of the gifted with Professor X: the power of the mind along with challenges
  • How can you use your passion to find your purpose to light up the world?
  • You can become a superhero when you use your powers for good
  • Stan Lee Foundation: to bring entertainment into the classroom
  • Remember: the lives that we lead are the lessons we teach
