The extraordinary in the everyday: appreciate your value and flourish


On the busy streets of New York City, amid the bustle of everyday life, a violinist played for 45 minutes in the underground. As people ran by, a few stopped to listen, a few even clapped, and the violinist collected only $30 in tips. No one knew that the violinist was none other than Joshua Bell, one of the world's most famous and accomplished musicians. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written on a violin worth a whopping $3.5 million.

Two days earlier, Joshua had sold out a theatre in Boston, with tickets averaging $100 each. It is hard to believe that such a gifted musician, who plays such beautiful music, can go unnoticed and underappreciated in an everyday setting. But it happens, and this experiment is a poignant reminder of how often the extraordinary can be overlooked in the midst of the ordinary.

The same can be said of many people in different sectors. There are countless people with immense talent and potential, yet they struggle to get the recognition and rewards they deserve. But it doesn't have to be that way. When people arm themselves with confidence in their worth and remove themselves from environments that do not serve them, they have the power to thrive and grow.

So, listen to your gut and don't settle for less than you deserve. If you are not valued where you are, it is time to change. Acknowledge your worth and go to a place where you are celebrated. It's time to take the stage and shine, just like Joshua Bell did in that underground station, and show the world the beauty of real talent and art.
