Susan Boyle

Just a quick post for today. I have to comment on the Susan Boyle phenomenon. For those of you who do not know what I am talking about, she is a 47 year old woman from Scotland who recently sang “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent. She is not an attractive person and was initially treated with derision by the audience and clear doubt by the judges until she opened her mouth and began to sing. What followed was an incredible performance that immediately won over everyone in the crowd as well as what is quickly becoming one of the largest You Tube audiences ever.
The bottom line here is obvious: Don’t judge a book by its cover. Ms. Boyle had a dream and she pursued it despite the odds against her due to her physical appearance.
We can learn some lessons from Susan in the business world – Do not let anyone take away your dream…keep fighting and one day you’ll have your Susan Boyle moment!
