In case you live in a cave, I wanted to let you know that Rami Malek won Best Actor at the Academy Awards a week ago.
And in case you really do live in a cave and don’t know who Rami Malek is, he’s the actor that played Freddie Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody.
Freddie Mercury was the lead singer of the band Queen (again, for you cave dwellers) and had a spectacular singing voice. His range was thought to be nearly four octaves. Normal vocal range is just under three octaves, so...Freddie was pretty exceptional.
So at this point you might be wondering, what the heck does this have to do with me?
Don’t worry, I’m not going to ask you to start taking singing lessons, but what I am asking you to do is expand your range.
Each one of you has something unique to offer. But most people just hang back and stay safe. Instead of pushing the envelope to see what you’re capable of, you stay comfortable. You play Mary Had a Little Lamb instead of rocking out to Bohemian Rhapsody.
Freddie Mercury had a great singing voice, whether he sang a single note or all 32, but man is the world a better place for having heard his full range. He brought everything he had to the stage, and you must do this too.
Because here’s the thing: you’ll never know what you’re capable of until you push yourself to the limit. That means trying new things, saying yes when you’re scared instead of saying no, and realizing that no matter what, you’ll be ok.
Because you will.
Life is meant to be lived. Fully. Completely. What are you capable of? Expand your range by pushing the envelope. Watch and see how your confidence grows as you rock out on life’s stage.
