Superheroes differ greatly from villains not necessarily because of the powers they possess, but what they choose to do with them. Your daily intentions often matter more than your actions because if your intentions are good, you will act accordingly.

Always remember that you possess everything you need inside you to accomplish your dreams. You can be the hero of your own life if you dare to try. Moreover, it might take longer or be more difficult to do things the right way, but doing so could be the difference between being a hero and being a villain.
