Giving up on your dream

This video was just posted on January 3rd & it already has over 4 million hits on YouTube so there’s a good chance you’ve seen it. This guy has clearly been through a lot in his life & yet he refuses to give up on his dream. I don’t know the specific details of his story but it would seem he’s probably had every opportunity to stop trying but he believes his dream is worth fighting for.

One of the hardest things about being a pastor is talking to so many people that are dissatisfied with life because they’ve given up on their dreams. I don’t know what will become of this guy & his amazing radio voice but even if his dream is never fulfilled, he will know in his heart that he never stopped trying & I promise you, his outlook on life will be better than the person who’s given up.  Use your talents, pursue your dreams with passion & don’t EVER stop trying!

What might this world look like if less of us gave up on our dreams?

Thoughts to ponder…

UPDATE: Just tweeted by ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers have offered this guy a job!!!!!
