Often we do things and live a life way below our true potential. It sometimes takes being fortunate to be spotted by the right person who can see what is there and who helps a person to express it and discover the real self. Anyone who does not now see this from this clip, might wish to take a little more time at some introspection. That way they will not be dismissive of their own hidden abilities and will look out for good qualities within others.
