I watched this video a week or so ago and thought, “What if…?”
What if Christopher Maloney didn’t have his mom cheering for him?
What if he hadn’t had one person who believed in him?
What if he had let the voices of his detractors drown out the one voice that said, “You are talented. You’ve got this.”?
We all need a champion, a cheerleader, an encourager in our corner. Not someone to give us false hope or shield us from the truth, but someone who sees the gifts we have to offer the world and wants the world to have the joy of receiving them.
Who believes in you? Make sure to thank them. Who are you championing? Make sure they know it.
