Remember Susan Boyle, the Scottish T.V. sensation from Britain’s Got Talent? She was middle-aged, shy, portly, nonthreatening – the classic underdog. Although Boyle performed well in the final competition, she didn’t win. And afterwards she was hospitalized with emotional exhaustion. Yet she came out the other end with her sense of humor intact and more confident.
You can take a lesson from Susan Boyle. Focus on your strengths that can lead to success. Look for a role model who inspires you and begin to see yourself from a different perspective. And relax as you let your creativity run wild.
There may be stumbling blocks along the way, but just keep going. Focus inward and don’t be swayed by the attitude of others. Pay attention only to what you’re trying to accomplish. And continue to move forward on your own steam.
Here’s a way you may be able to follow your dreams. Avon Voices is conducting a singing talent search – inviting you to join a global movement that unites and inspires through the universal language of music. Women around the world are making their voices count by telling their stories, sharing their dreams, and showcasing their talents.
Through February 13, 2011, you can sing out on a 30-second video clip from the approved song list at Avon Voices. The finalists will be eligible for professional coaching, Avon makeovers and studio time for performance videos.
The Avon Foundation for Women was founded in 1955 to improve the lives of women. Avon global philanthropy has donated more than $800 million in more than 50 countries for causes most important to women, including breast cancer research and efforts to end domestic violence.
