Keep Dreaming... helps to inspire

I would have never thought that all this would have happened to me, getting to interview some of the best athletes at Liberty University for Option LU this semester. It really made me think about the dreams that I had this summer, and how if you just keep believing that they can happen, there is really no stopping you. I had so many occurrences this summer where I had said this is what I was going to do, and it actually came true. One of the biggest things I have learned is that no matter how impossible it may seem, don't give up, because the next thing you know it is actually happening. The biggest example from this summer was when I got to interview Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue, I had told my manager that I had wanted to do an on camera interview when I got there this summer, but I didn't really think there would come a time for me to actually do it. A couple weeks before the end of the summer they tell me they would like me to do this interview and it was amazing.

I thought about this over and over tonight while I was trying to figure out what I was going to say in my blog, and I think its really simple, the more you dream and the more you go after your dreams the easier it will be to help inspire others. If they see you going after what you love, they will be more likely to go after what they want to do, because they feel like someone is on the journey with them. I really think that is why I decided to dream so big is because I saw other around me dreaming just as big, and I didn't feel like I was doing this alone. It was one of the biggest inspirations to me, because I was surrounded by dreamers, and it made it so much easier.

I have to tell everyone that I found out last night that another one of my dreams is going to be coming true this weekend. I am going to be doing "On the Ice" reporting during the Liberty Men's Hockey game on Saturday during the game, and this could be a huge break for me. I have always wanted to do something like this, when I think of on ice reporting the first name that pops in my mind is Pierre McGuire who does the reporting during the NBC and Versus games on TV, and this game on Saturday is going to be LIVE on TV. I will definitely be posting the link where you can watch the game online, and actually see a big dream come true.

I want to leave you with one final thing, you are never too old or too young to start dreaming. You can dream about doing anything, and go after that, that's what I ended up doing this summer, and my dreams came true. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way, and I really believe that because I am continuing to dream bigger and bigger every single day, people will hopefully look at me and be inspired to go after their dreams, no matter how impossible they may sound. If you don't try, you will never know if it was reachable or not. It's your turn, go out and do something about the opportunities you are given now!

Dream ON
