Thats what life is about…

Yesterday when my friends mentioned a name Paul Potts during our lunch discussions it dint get into me.

Today my friend sent me a link for a video on Paul Potts. I wasn’t too keen to watch it either. After some time I just clicked at the link to watch the youtube video.

There was this guy named Paul Potts on “Britain’s Got Talent” show. Extremely clumsy looking guy, his body language showed he was not confident, his clothes were not for the occasion. The Judges ask him what was he going to do and he says “sing an opera”. Judges weren’t impressed. Their body language showed it was going to be a waste of time.They said… ok whenever you are ready. They had already written him off.

This guy,the clumsy,completely shaking, Paul Potts starts singing the Opera. Less than a minute of his singing, the judges straighten themselves, start watching him, listening onto him and ultimately sold onto him. One of the judges wept. The whole audience gave him a standing ovation. A star was made that moment. The audience couldn’t believe what they heard.

This guy,Paul Potts ultimately went on to win the Talent show.

Raw talent can take a person to great heights even if he lacks many skills. All that needs to happen to him is a little polishing, which would already have happened to a great extent.

A moment of opportunity can make a great difference to one life.

Don’t judge a person by his looks.

There are several learnings in life from this small video Paul Potts first audition.

This is what Paul Potts had to say just before he went on stage for his first performance on the talent show. – “My dream is to spend my life doing I feel what I was born to do”. True for every human being.
