“Why the red cape?” asked a reader who’d just found my book, Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job.
Here’s why. Remember when you were a kid, and you grabbed a towel or a sheet and flung it around your shoulders?
You felt confident. Courageous. In control—even if you only controlled the backyard.
Fast forward to your world of work, where life feels anything but in control.
What if you could have that red cape feeling back again, no matter what’s happening in your world of work?
It’s time to confident & even courageous in today’s new world of work—especially when the world feels out of control
That’s why the red cape matters.
It matters because you deserve to soar.
Well, let me ask you this–what do you think of when you think of a red cape?
For most of us, we connect it with power, strength, freedom, even flying.
When Clark Kent put his on, he shed his skin of timidity, his hesitancy—and became Superman.
But he was still the same guy down deep.
For us in the real world, the red cape is a reminder of how it feels when we get clear, confident, and in control of our life at work.
(Lest you be confused, we’re not talking about Little Red Riding Hood, although you have to admit she was a pretty brave chick. Remember, she wore a hood, designed for protection and hiding.)
In fact, the red cape changes your entire demeanor and outlook.
Try it right now—grab your (yes, imaginary) cape from the (imaginary) rack.
Shake it out, releasing the dust and wrinkles set in from lack of use. Swing it around your body and fasten it under your neck.
Then look in to a mirror—a real one.
What do you see?
I bet you’re standing taller and exuding more energy —imaginary or not.
It’s a symbol of your superpowers, the talents and gifts you already have inside you that the world is asking for you—starving for you– to bring to your work.
Our work is designed to help you take back control in your career and become the hero of your life at work again.
