When you feel discouraged, think of the remarkable Paul Potts

Imagine how many hours this man stood alone in an empty field, perhaps, a barnyard full of chicks and sows, a darkened house, singing his heart out. No audience to hear him. Sing he must. Sing he did. Else where did he hone this amazing voice?

Enjoy this treat.

To be sure, in their efforts to praise him after the show, the judges reveal a bit of elitist condescension, but he went on to win the competition and to sing for the Queen. Later he sang for Oprah. May he always sing.

May we all sing, each in our own way, for the joy of it.

What do you love to do, no matter who is watching, no matter who knows that you do it? What talent uniquely yours do you long to share with others? Begin.
