The ultimate underdog story. Daniel E. "Rudy" Ruettiger is a person with big dreams and a bigger heart. No excuses. Determination in the face of impossible odds. Rudy encompasses what the human spirit really means. Rudy never asked to be rooted for but nevertheless we end up wanting him to succeed. His teammates, friends, family and doubters want to share his dream. Rudy's actions made the world smile and he never realized until the end that, by fighting for his dreams, he made everyone around him to want to be a better person. That's motivation.

"Scene #01 - "Having Dreams is What Makes Life Tolerable"

Those are some powerful words. Sometimes you just need someone to believe in your dreams, even if that person is not you.

Scene #02 - "Prove What?!"

Even the best of us can be struck with self doubt and self pity. And even if we think we are alone in this world, we will always need someone that can beat some sense in to us. Fortune's speech is the definition of motivational. And only someone that gives a crap about us will tell us how it is without pampering.

Scene #03 - "For Rudy, Coach"

Motivation is what we need to jump start our pursuit of our goals. We are always looking for that reason but are we ready to become that reason for someone else? These men were part of one of the most prestigious programs in the nation. They played for one of the best football teams and Rudy reminded them that nothing can be taken for granted and nothing is earned without effort. These men found in Rudy the motivation to become better people.

We are always looking for the meaning to our lives and we are always looking for ways to make our own mark in this world; and if we impacted on at least one person's life in a positive way, well, guess what? You are already a success.


Well, there you have it. Thank you very much for your time and I hope you enjoyed the read.
