On my way to pick my kids up from school we run into a talent scout who was waiting to meet another parent and her child. The talent scout hands me her card and I instantly thought of my daughter and her desire to be on Disney. Although this was not a Disney talent scout, we don’t despise small beginnings. I walk to my car and challenge my daughter to meet the scout (sometimes you have to test yourself and others to see if what they/you want, is really what they/you want). I tell my daughter to come meet this nice lady who is looking for young girls for a few upcoming talent shows.
I walk away and watch from the distance……my daughter is singing…..my daughter is cat walking on the sidewalk……and now my daughter is giving her best Whitney Houston performance.
Talk about being bold. The lady was shocked at her impromptu performance.
She asked Kayla “Are you ready to audition in front of a large crowd?”
My daughter replies, “I was born ready, my mother is my activator”.
The lady said “you mean your motivator”
My daughter replied “no, she is my activator, she tells me to be prepared at all times and to do my best.”
Side bar: What seeds are you planting in your children’s mind? Do they believe in limitless opportunitunities?
Do they believe that they can be and do whatever they set their minds to?
Are you taking bold steps? Are you showing up in the world ready to do your best and be your best when the opportunity presents itself?
Life is unscripted. Be bold.
(by the way in less than 15 minutes my daughter is the star of the show and will be doing a tribute in memory of Whitney Houston)
