In this clip from the movie ‘Rudy’, Rudy’s best friend, Pete, gives him an unforgettable gift for his birthday; Faith. Pete didn’t just say that he believed in Rudy’s dream of going to Notre Dame and playing football. He gives him a tangible reminder of this goal, and whenever Rudy puts that jacket on, he will remember that at least one person in his life believes in him and his dream.

Do you have a dream like Rudy that seems so far, but so real that you can taste it? Or maybe you can relate to Pete. Are you the friend that fans the flame of your buddy’s big dream?

We all need people to be on our dream team; someone who will tell us that we can do it and remind us why we have all that it takes to make it happen. If you don’t have a person in your life like that, find one. If you can be uplifting faith inspiring person for someone else; be that person.

One of the reasons that I love being a Dream Partner is that I can come along side the dreams of my clients. If I can help them see it clearly and help them believe that it can happen. It will happen.

Who do you know that needs encouragement today for their big dream? Send them a card today or give them a call. Let them know that you believe in them.
Who do you know that can be your encouragement today? Let them know that some days you may need them to do the same for you.

Remember what Pete’s dad always said: “Havin’ dreams is what makes life tolerable.”
