To Mark and Everyone Who Have A Dream!
I came across a video on- you tube- of Susan Boyle's first audition on Britain's got talent. A 47 year old woman auditioning on a talent show where typically younger singers took the stage. When asked why she was there her response without hesitation responded, "I want to be a singer". She was then asked why she thought she hadn't been successful and her response was that no one had ever given her a chance. The moment that Ms. Boyle appeared on stage she seemed doomed to failure by the audience. In fact, the audience and judges were not expecting much from this singer but perhaps a laugh or two. What a surprise, when Susan Boyle began singing! A powerful, beautiful voice that needed absolutely no training. It was just magic and the audience immediately began cheering her on with amazement at her immense talent. The judges had a look on their faces of sheer delight as if finding hidden treasure. This remarkable woman with a voice of an angel hidden from the world simply because of mere perception. The assumption that she was a joke and couldn't possibly sing cheated the world of her talent for many years. Susan Boyle is now recognized and validated as a "singer". This has empowered her with a confidence that radiates her beauty insde and out to the world. The person that you least expect quite often does great things with their life.
If you have a dream, go after it like Susan Boyle. It must have been frightening to put herself out there in front of the world but she did it anyway. She stepped outside of her comfort zone and just did it! You can too! First, you need to be clear on what you want in life. She wanted to be a singer and there was no doubt in her mind. What do you want to do with your life? It doesn't matter if you are starting in the middle (40"s-50"s) or out of high school. Next, place your dream into action! What are the steps needed to make your dream come true? List those steps and scratch them off as you accomplish each one. A dear person in my life once said, "baby Steps" are needed in getting things done. Well, he was so right! Those baby Steps accumulate into big accomplishments. If you have a dream don't keep it in your head, put it into action! It is your gift to God and the world to use the talents within you.. Don't worry about what others may say. YOU be your biggest fan and watch the magic happen in your life too. Think BIG!!
Friends, your standing ovation awaits you but it's up to you to take the first step.
Matthew 13:3-9He told many stories in the form of parables, such as this one:“Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. 4 As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. 5 Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. 6 But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. 8 Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! 9 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”
May the Grace of God be with you.
