Danger, Will Robinson! Robert’s about to be corny. I know this may be considered totally off-topic (maybe) and most have likely seen it before, but I had not.
Lee Hopkins shared this in Facebook recently. It is too beautiful.ur good, fun friend
Recently, as I listen to students about to head out after graduation, some are expressing doubts about whether they are ready for the real world stage. If this story cannot inspire, I don’t know what will.
Following the Paul Potts storyline, it turns into an amazingly true tale.
Paul Potts had a dream. He stepped out upon a stage, for all to see and hear. The reality seems to have turned out to be more beautiful than the dream. He believed in himself just enough to stand up and sing forth.
This is the kind of story that will make you cry. Thanks for sharing it, Lee. You’re right. “This bloke is amazing!!”
No, it isn’t off-topic. For students? This is the kind of story that should hit home as you get ready to step out on your stage. Don’t think you’re ready? Don’t think you’ve got the right stuff? Paul didn’t seem to think so either. Now, look at him.
OK. I may be a bit corny, but I love a great story.
On Monday, the 3rd of December 2007, Paul Potts will perform before HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh at the Empire Theatre in The Royal Variety Performance 2007. Something tells me that performance will mean more than the ₤100,000 prize money from Britain’s Got Talent.
