We’re counting on you.
Rachel Crow is fourteen and she can sing. You’ll cry happy, cheer-leading tears when you watch this video.
The gem of this comes at the end of the clip and it’s easy to miss. I had to watch this twice to catch it. SPOILER ALERT: When Rachel gets four thumbs up from the judges (yeah!) and there is wild applause and cheers, she says something so important:
“Thank you. I won’t let you down.”
Thank you. I won’t let you down.
This is the most humble and courageous phrase you can speak when life opens the door wide for you — which it does every day.
You’re up for it. You’re grateful. You see the gift and you realize you can’t do it alone.
With this: Thank you. I won’t let you down, you rise to the occasion.
Dream realizing is reciprocal. Sometimes, when someone believes in you, you are honor bound to go for it.
Say it. Believe it. Hear it (from my heart to yours).
