What sets you apart in the world out there? Do you have that certain something that draws people to you magnetically that simply cannot be explained? Have you got “The X Factor”? You might have noticed that there are people who “have the touch”. It’s like no matter what they say, do, or go after, they win. Do you think they were born that way? Is it an innate quality, or something that they had to become, or maybe a little bit of both? Yes it’s that’s mystical, undeniable thing called..
“THE X FACTOR”
It has been quite a blast watching Simon Cowell’s brand new blockbuster talent show “The X Factor”. For its 3rd week running it’s making a big splash on television with audiences . The format is similar to the smash hit “American Idol”, where Simon and judge Paula Abdul spun off from, but there’s something you might notice immediately that’s totally unique about this show!
“The X Factor” has “the x factor“!
There’s a completely fresh an unique format, in which Simon has brilliantly made major changes that have made the show a hit right off the bat!
- A $5,000,000 Prize
- A Live Audience for all the Auditions
- Mentoring By The Judges Themselves
- Widening of the Age Limits, and Group Acts so more people are eligible
The live audience has made for a certain dynamic that is not present in the auditions on American Idol, which speaks to how important that buzz and emotional thrill of a crowd, or the absence of it can have an affect on the audition. Audiences know what they want to see! As I was watching this show, I noticed a thread going through many of the acts that came out on the stage. Some of the acts that did not take their singing seriously were absolutely terrible! You could see that it took on a different meaning to them, or in some cases they had themselves talked into believing they were actually good, when they had no pitch, when it was clear they had no business before such a huge audience. There were a few exceptions in which their singing was borderline, and the judges were divided. In these cases it was a cases you could tell the artist needed to go “back to the drawing board” and get to work on themselves some more, and possibly re-audition next year. This speaks to developing ourselves. We are always becoming MORE. When we stop growing we die.
Brennan Hunt Wow!!
One the other hand, the men and women that clearly had The X Factor, were obvious stars to varying degrees from the first few bars that came out of their mouths….THE CROWD ROARED!! Some of these people were jaw droppers, that were so astounding in their talent that you wondered where they’d been and why they were not famous. These acts were PASSIONATE beyond words! You could tell that their music was so deeply in their hearts, and they could not go to their graves without expressing it publicly. They took their craft seriously, and would almost die for a chance to perform. Is this how you are about YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE? Is it so important to you that you MUST accomplish it, and you’ll do almost anything to make it happen? People sense that and want to be around it!!
So what IS The X Factor? Is is talent? Is it Heart? Is it guts? It could be knowledge, beauty, leadership ability, charisma, and even qualities that don’t have a name.
You just know that YOU have IT. You just know when someone else has IT. You also know when they DON’T have IT..(unfortunately)

Allow me to explain the last one on the list. Everything we do is really based on the two basic human emotional drives, to avoid pain, or to gain pleasure. Pain is derived from what? fear.
Fear is the emotion the we all spend a great deal of time trying to avoid. Basically when you have
The X Factor..YOU ARE FEAR LESS !!
So what does that make YOU?? LOVE
And what is One Emotion Everyone Ultimately Seeks?
