We really never know what the person next to us has the capability of until they decide to show us. There are so many endless options of hobbies for us to choose from that we can discover our hidden talents, or even, with practice, we can become masters. Whether we decide to take time to dive into our imagination through art, photography, or even learning an instrument, our hidden talents are patiently waiting within us to be discovered. We all have the ability to learn these new skills and develop them through practice and repetition. The unique thing is that sometimes we all forget that each of us possesses the ability to learn or have these hidden talents, and when someone shows us their skills for the first time, we can be utterly shocked because of our first judgments of them. Take, for example, this construction worker who decides to take a piano break at his local station.
Doing a doubletake…
One construction worker took a moment to relax from his busy workday to perform a spontaneous improvisation on a piano at a station. As we watch, and especially for those who pass by, you would think that this is a professional pianist!
The moment you realize…
The user on YouTube who posted this video, named Brendan Kavanagh, titled this video “The Moment You Realize You’re in the Wrong Job,” and as the video begins, we all can understand why. The viral video has now racked up over 24,000,000 views and 425k likes.
What’s that sound?
As the video pans up from the construction worker, we can see the crowd that has been drawn in by the music that is emitting from the piano. Many are taking to their phones or cameras to capture this rare moment. Others in the crowd are standing in appreciation.
Focusing on the job
The construction worker pays no mind to the crowd that is gathering around him and continues to perform his lovely tune.
Standing in awe
More and more people begin to gather around just to take a moment with this construction worker as he shares his hidden talent with anyone and everyone in the station that day.
Living in the moment
As the videographer pans the camera around the back of the construction worker, we can see the little bit of dirt from the job on the back of his vest and can further appreciate him taking this moment to release on the piano.
Stop and stare
As others in the station pass by, we see throughout the video people continually stopping to take a moment to appreciate and many to capture a photo or video to share the moment.
Soaking in the moment
One older gentleman even took a moment to sit down next to the piano to soak in this beautiful impromptu melody.
As the video comes to an end, we can see more people being drawn in and dispersing, always whipping out their cameras to capture this man’s unique hidden talent that they may not have expected.
Another video to remind us that each of us has the capability to discover hidden talents or even master, through repetition, whatever we can dream of.
