Another Great Dreamer!

In 1936 the Olympic Games were held in Berlin, and the ruthless dictator Hitler wanted to use the contest to prove to the world that the "Aryan" people were the dominate race. Imagine the German leader's ire when Jesse Owens won four gold medals for the 100 meter, the 200 meter, the 4 X 100 meter relay, and the long jump. Jesse Owens summed up the experience with this...

"We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self discipline, and effort."

A simple statement by a humble man that cut right to the chase. He laid out a four step program for any individual to achieve success. When we look back on the incredible feat accomplished by Owens in the face of adversity, you can't help but wonder what steps we are taking to achieve our goals and dreams? We have but a snapshot of time here on this earth and it's important we don't waste a second on insignificance. Because as a great man once said, "we all have dreams!"

God Bless!
