It’s Super Bowl 43. I used to be a big 49r fan. It’s faded over the years as the team I loved changed to represent something else entirely. I haven’t been that big on Super Bowl outcomes until this one.
This Super Bowl has captured my attention due to Kurt Warner.
Dreamers can relate to him. He’s someone who’s after a second coming. His ride to the Superbowl is marked by many difficult twists and turns. He started his career in 1994 when as a free agent he was signed by the Green Bay Packers. They dropped him that same year. It was the year I was pregnant with Brian.
He ended up playing Arena ball and in Europe for three years.
Anyone else probably would have gone on to do something else.
Not Kurt Warner.
He went on to sign with the St Louis Rams (third-round draft) and become Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player in what some say is the most exciting Super Bowl game ever.
If you have been working on your big dream and you find yourself thinking, “What the [BLEEP] was I thinking when I agreed to do this?”
Because behind each and every big dreamer, there is a Kurt Warner-type story. If you knew the size of the personal mountains successful dreamers climb each day, you’d be impressed. It’s never too late to dust off the life you once aimed for and try it on again. It won’t be the same, but who knows where you might end up.
Kurt Warner wrote a book about his life in All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football, and the First Miracle Season. I thought about making the website tagline “8WomenDream: Where Anything is Possible.” I think Kurt would approve.
