We've all heard of stories of ordinary people accomplishing amazing physical feats. Like a mother conjuring superhuman strength to rescue her child from under a pile of concrete. Or a good Samaritan who displays lightning-fast instincts, pushing someone aw ay from a moving vehicle. Well, according to Steven Kotler, director of research for the Flow Genome Project a global organization studying peak performance and optimal well-being, these are examples of our inherent superhuman potential. Indeed, in his book, The Rise of Superman, Kotler introduces the power of flow and its effects on human performance.
