The Flo Expression with Marcus Johnson-What is your Superpower?



By Marcus Johnson

Early this week my daughter was asked about her Superpower. She politely corrected the woman asking her this question by stating her Superpowers (plural). As a father, I continue to enjoy the development of my baby girl! I am such a fan that sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I don’t get over the top! That said, what I saw on Tuesday evening is something that I wish for every adult!
When we we’re younger we know our superpowers! It’s the process of doing things like adulting, that make us forget about them! It’s hard as hell to continue to dream and to work towards them as society does its best to beat them out of you so that you go get a job, make a little bit of money, and spend it all making somebody else, who understands their superpowers, wealthy!
You must focus on your Superpowers! Then you must focus on the Superpowers that you would like to develop. This is the only way for you to combat the overwhelming amount of depressive content that we see each day. Remember, they call it programming. It’s TV programming! It’s radio programming! The question I always asked was, “Who the hell are they programming?” Now that I’m older and wiser I know that the answer is simple…me/us!
Stay focused on your Superpowers! You can’t realize you’re Superpowers and be angry, anxious, negative, and all of the other fear-based emotions! If you feed yourself your superpowers you can’t help but maintain your level and FLO as a superhero! Especially in your own mirror! That’s where accounts most!
I love you! I love you! I love you! Always do your FLO!!!

The Flo expression with Marcus Johnson It’s an outgrowth from Johnson’s radio show: Catch the FLO. The show is produced in association with the African American Public Radio Consortium and is distributed through National Public Radio ( NPR).  “People are just going through so much that the short FLO segment gives them something to hold on to. It’s a resource that is not only motivational and inspirational, but aspirational and affirmational. People just need to know that they’re on the right track and they’re not alone in failure and success. With social media and life after-COVID, we have become less connected than ever. We lack the skills to communicate effectively. And many of us have locked into adolescent patterns that don’t allow us to enjoy our daily life journeys. Each day is all we have! Why not live it in our FLO! It’s FLO with no W and it means for the love of. That’s for the love of life the love of So, and for the love of making our each of our day is just a little bit better!” The Flo expression is but one component and a much larger mission to become a part of the soul of the world!
