Feed Your Dreams, Let Them Live

It is so easy to get discouraged in the road to manifesting your dreams and passions. Not enough money, not enough time, and not enough support are just a few allowances that we give ourselves to put the passions on standby. When, actually, all this is doing is allowing you to settle with complacency, and giving you more excuses to go further away from your dreams. I have heard so many people tell me that the reason why they are not doing what once was their dream or passion – or even what they obtained a college degree in – is that … Continue reading Feed Your Dreams, Let Them Live

Twenty-one years ago, a non-intimidating North Carolina State team entered the NCAA Basketball tournament, led by their coach, Jimmy Valvano. Despite ten losses that season, “Jimmy V” did not lose hope in his team, even though they had a struggling 8-6 conference record and lost a total of 33 games in three years.
