What would it be?

I myself would want the ability to have an omniscience of all mathematics, and translate mathematical equations in my head into a physical manifestation.

What about you?

Try to come up with something interesting too if you can ;)

So many choices... save files for real life, the ability to innately know where whatever I want is, reality bending, mind control.... tough one.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Luckily, that's a superpower you can actually have.

First you gotta define what success is to you. It could be landing your dream job or making a lot of money etc.

Find what it is you love, and just do it, go for it go go go! Do not stop, do not look back, do not give up. Craft a morning routine, and build productive habits while cutting the bad ones. Make sacrifices now so that you don't have to make worse, longer sacrifices later.

Do not let the fear of failure control you, learn to communicate clearly with people, eat healthy and work-out every morning before the sun rises.
Be decisive, and learn to influence others. See every negative thing that happens as a learning opportunity rather than something that happens to you.

Know exactly where you'll be in the next year, five years even ten years. Learn to set short term, medium term and long term goals and deadlines, and to exercise serious amounts of discipline. Your habits should help you with the discipline part as well, so long as you have the passion and drive to do what it is you do.

As for myself, I know all my set goals and deadlines. I know where i'm going to be in the foreseeable future.

Master your craft, know your industry, know your company's hierarchy if you're not at the top, and remember to be brutally honest with yourself. Be humble, but confident.

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Always be willing to learn and grow. Learn to think like an employer, not an employee.

If you want to build something, learn to do it in the most cost-effective way possible. Keeping things simple also helps. Keeping things simple is something I myself can struggle with at times.

Read, learn, grow, persevere, have integrity, over deliver on promises, etc. etc. etc.

Take what I say with a grain of salt, but I did have mentors who were well within the top 1%. So I have the upmost confidence in their advice.

Learn to save money. Learn to use assets to make more assets. This is probably one of the most important things you could do, is the way you use your assets. Most rich people don't use fancy cars, most rich people buy 2-3 year old cars, use it for like a year, then sell it for marginally less, effectively using the car productively for almost nothing for the whole year. Another example is if you buy an appreciating asset like (using cars again) a super-car, like the Ford GT, wait 2 years until you can sell it (they don't let you sell it right away), and you've just made $200k because the appreciating value. At first it's hard to make money, but when you have money, it becomes easier and easier to make money. Have a diverse investment portfolio too.

See your goals and passions in everything you do. Be obsessed, and fight for what you want the entire way, no matter how painful or uncomfortable it gets.

And remember, stick to what you say you're going to do. Knowledge and wisdom are useless if you don't use it. Doing is always better than talking.

Not really, pausing and continuing time falls under the remit of controlling time. Think of another one, the power is already taken.

This is long, but I completely agree with you. I actually grow up in a very successful minded, growth-mindset-like household. I'm also still in school. Right now it would be cool if I could just drop out of school and lead a successful, financially-free life because I have all of these skills at my disposal that I don't need any school.

But really cool post thanks! Now, I don't necessarily have 'mentors' but I do engage with people who are very successful and make millions of dollars per year. And the path that I'm on IRL is leading me to be one of those successful people. I read a lot of business books that teach the value of speaking, making friends, and helping yourself by helping others.

So, yeah...

"if you can" is what the rest of the quote says.

I'm not saying that it is cool to 'copy' someone else's answer but you can't be going around telling them that they cannot choose the same superpower as yours because it isn't "interesting"
