From Peter Parker to Spider Man: What Career Changers Can Learn From the Comic Book Hero

October 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 188

Superheroes don’t have to be a source of inspiration for children alone. Take the case of Spider-Man, the red and blue clad superhero we love to watch on big screens again and again. 136-minutes of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ has quite a lot that even grown-ups can take home besides a fun-filled time of movies and popcorns.

Career changers especially can learn a lot from Spider-Man. Affordable online colleges and their flexible mode of study have made it possible for many people to change careers without giving up their jobs. And they have heroes like Spider-Man to derive some needed inspiration from!

Here are some attributes of Spiderman that career changers can look to emulate:

1. Be Confident

After all, Peter Parker transforms from being a shy high school student to a courageous superhero, tackling tall towers and sinister criminals. Career changers are also taking a major leap in their lives, and taking a great risk. But if Spider-Man can do it, so can you!

2. Be Creative

Our agile friend had quite a creative streak in him to make his distinct powers stand out. Think of the unique spandex suit and devices to help him shoot his web. Career changers are also amongst the breed of people who think out of the box. They think beyond the obvious to see what they can do differently in their lives. Like Spider-Man, they also look for ways to enhance their intellectual and professional powers by exploring different career options.

3. Be Daring

Well, well, if there’s something our spidery friend must have taught anyone, it is to be daring. He is not scared of taking the jump and of putting his life at risk. And so shouldn’t career changers. Of course you’re taking a risk with your life; you are going out of your comfort zone to explore totally new horizons. But what good would it be if you don’t even give a new career a shot. Experiment, try, and be brave enough to take the plunge like Spider-Man!

4. Be Determined

Change is never easy. It wasn’t easy for Peter Parker, and it isn’t going to be easy for career changers. But if you set your mind to it and know that you will make it work, things will automatically become effortless for you. Become the Spider-Man of your new career with a strong will and resolve to excel and succeed at whatever new you do!

Changing a career is no less than a heroic feat. But with the right attitude and a positive mindset, the transition can be quite a fulfilling one for anyone.
