I'd never found anyone who could touch the Righteous Brother's version until Mike Yung, the gentleman in the video, gave his rendition. This video has taken off over the internet and thousands of people,now fans were so touch by his singing. This video is only 2:20 but it's impact and reach has more than multiplied. On Facebook it's been viewed more than 15 million times. People were so moved, myself included. It's amazing how what may seem like so little has meant so much.
I got to thinking. What if he hadn't sung that day? What if he never filmed it? Better yet what if he never decided to share his talent with others. What if he thought it was no big deal and wouldn't impact anyone so he kept it to himself? I hope you see where I'm going with this. He had talent and he used it! And it's impact had a rippling effect. It's no different for you or me. No I can't sing like Mike Yung but I have my own unique talents. I SEW! And that's a Superpower! Believe it or not sewing was something I used to consider not to be so unique or special but I've come to look at things differently. No one can do exactly what I can the way I can. That's not to say no one is more talented. Absolutely not, there's way more talented people out there. But there's only ONE ME and there's only ONE YOU! And it's that uniqueness that sets us apart and validates our importance. Oftentimes even I forget this. I'm glad for the reminder!
So the next time you're tempted to shrug off your talents as unimportant---DON'T! The next time you think your insignificant- DON'T! The next time you think your contribution won't mean much of anything---DON'T! Don't undermine your gifts or talents! Don't keep that goodness to yourself. You never know who you may influence. Even if you influence one person it's worth it! By being yourself, operating in your God given gifts you have the potential to impact so many! Remember someone needs you! Thanks Mike Yung for the reminder! Keep on singing!
