It is not an editor of the fashionable in USA, is a guru or anything. Paul Potts is a standard rate of the street. Or at least it was until recently.
Yesterday morning in an informal breakfast with journalists in the office have been surprised when I mentioned what I call "The Effect Paul Potts." What is the purpose for me? To see it, you should see this video, is less than 3 minutes and you can draw some conclusions (perhaps it is possible that many of you have seen, this video has about 6,000,000 viewed on YouTube).
Possible to think, well, a reality television more ugly and a good singer. Correct, but for me it is not transcendent. For me it is incredible that such an exceptional voice that has educated and born to sing opera, has consumed his life to enter this contest behind a desk, selling mobile phones for South West that is so sad and unbelievable. It is sad that someone who has a gift, which is an illusion and that has some exceptional opportunities to make something beautiful and important has been engulfed by society and can not do that for what it really was born, in this case sing.
Of course Paul is a privilege, a stroke of luck, hard work, perseverance and finally television, a contest, a beautiful story, fame, make a record, concerts by world. So it could be something like a modern Cinderella.
The problem is that with all this economic uncertainty that we live, these stories are pretty scarce even more of what they were doing it, and the inertia of society, we will remove them as individuals and limiting ambition is to be even more cruel you are generalizing and that such people, entrepreneurs with a dream, or even a gift, ending up in a gray, which are limited, can not overcome, and to fulfill dreams that for which they were born. Paul Potts is the effect that brace off, break with preset for you, with the paper that someone has assigned you, fight for what you want and try to highlight not autolimitarte within a company structure or mediocre.
If you think you have opportunities, or delusions that you were born to do something concrete to fight this, that the economic situation and stop you or intimidate you, I think if you feel that you were born for something else you should at least try to fight for it. Although fail.
