Stop Listening. Keep Dreaming.

I know you’ve seen the new Duracell commercial with Seattle Seahawks Fullback Derrick Coleman. If you haven’t you can by clicking here.

I love this video for so many reasons – the scriptwriting, the cinematography, the story – so undeniably and incredibly moving. Derrick’s been deaf since age three, and while many people told him to back off of his dreams of playing football –

He. Didn’t. Listen.

Now he and his team are playing for a chance at the Superbowl.

Connect the dots for your own story.

What is the hard thing you are trying to do – that dream you want to hold in the palm of your hands?

What is standing in your way?

Who is telling you it can’t be done?

What are you going to do about it?

The world needs more stories like Derrick’s.

It needs stories like yours and mine.

So stop listening, work hard, and keep dreaming.
