For the Paul Potts in Us...
by Chief Alchemist a.k.a Wiley Chin - December 12, 2007 Posted: 5:27:32 PM EDT

Paul Potts is the winner of Britain's Got Talent, 2007.

Potts' story is a story of the triumph of an ordinary guy with an extraordinary talent undiscovered until he picked up the courage to stand in the spotlight. If you think about it, you might ask, really, why it took him so long to do that. 

But that's the point.

There are so many people who have never really engaged their talents in life and the world is poorer for that. Imagine Paul Potts ignoring the gift of his amazing voice and just scrap for a living selling hand-phones instead, for the rest of his existence.

We laugh at people like William Hung when they make a fool of themselves. However, for the same shame we feel for those untalented wannabes, there are many others who dare not reach out to touch their dreams because they thought too lowly of themselves and their gifts.

This one's for all of us, for all the 'Paul Potts' in us!

Live your dream, start today!
