This is what courage, audacity & confidence is about (youtube).

Susan Boyle already pre-empted the reaction the audience would have when she pursued her dream to be a professional singer. Rolling of eyes, looks of 'why the hell is she even doing on stage', the negative judgement of people in general.

She did not care. She went on stage anyways.

This is the video of her performance, and contains snippets for both pre and post performance. An absolute eye-opener.

I cannot help but feel ashamed of myself and my fear.

p.s. I refuse to directly embed videos on my blog because I do not really enjoy experiencing the slowing down of someone else's blog with videos if all I wanted to do was to read the text posts.
