The message from this is very clear to me.
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.

It was not enough to get the wood man in him, he should have gone further to understand what was in the woodland from the book that might be affected by what he had found in him. Many times we also fall into the same trap of acting too early despite the fact that patience and a bit of humility would have completed our being the person inside us. Well done.
