Born to Shine…Not This Time

Post Represents: Thursday, June 23, 2011

Well the results for Born To Shine came in and for the umpteenth time, I was not selected contest wise. The question is, did it affect me? The proper answer is "No." I am totally immune to these type of results by now. My life is filled with many disappointments that builds foundations. The top two disappointments from the past year that come to mind is Oprah's Your Own Show (this blog has limited info on that right now) and Expedition Impossible. Expedition Impossible actually premiered on ABC over the past weekend. I think they did a good job selecting teams and I am not bitter at all. 

I have visited the Facebook of Born to Shine page for the results a few times since the contest but not many. My energy has been invested in several other places. If I didn't grow from my disappointments I would of been one of those people leaving comments on their Facebook page in order to seek attention. Never again. I've seen several other contestants doing that and for winning proposes its completely unnecessary.

As great as my interview went with Born to Shine, I most likely would of guessed they wouldn't of choose me. However, not until I got the results did I realize exactly why. Following the results, I went into the shower and subconsciously asked myself "I am wanted?" Someone without my strength and resilience may have of taken that question off in an extremely negative direction. I on the other hand realized something profound.  

My uniqueness isn't fit for a an already sculptured vision. Some people are not meant to be sidekicks or co-host. Other are not meant to fit a pre-design. Others perform in revolutionary standards. Its not impossible for me to be selected for a contest but tell me how many judges you think are looking for a someone who can build a talk show with his eyes close and is rocking a high top fade. I am not a typical fit. Most of these contests don't truly seek out for the extraordinary.

A base case scenario that involve me, involves producers and/or judges creating a tailor fit show. Just like the current web-cast show that is being created around me right now. I mentioned Day 268 Monday, June 13, 2011 and there is much more details to share in the future.

Final Thoughts

I could cry out "When is the disappointment going to end," but the answer is "Never." As long as I continue attempt to achieve feats of greatness, disapointment will come and go.

Bring it on. In the end, I will win and stay strong.

  1. Bravo, Motown! Awesome blog and what a great attitude! I'm going to have to look up the show as I'm not familiar with it, but cool for you for realizing so quickly that bigger and better things are in store for you. I wish my positive realizations came quicker sometimes...kudos to you, my friend!
