Tear Jerking Inspirational Story (Video)

This is an old one but it’s one of the most moving stories I’ve ever seen.

It’s about an autistic kid called Jason McElway who was the manager of his high school basketball team and finally had his wish to play with the team granted.

Jason’s job was to give out water to the players and motivate them. He never actually got to play a game until the last game of the season where his coach put him on the court for the last 4 minutes of the game.

This is what happened… (get a Kleenex ready)

Jason had a dream – to play a game of basketball with his team. He had to wait out nearly a whole season, but the time finally came where he would be able to live his dream.

This is just a simple example of the power of dreams – but a very powerful one. (did your tear ducts well up too?)

With our own lives, it doesn’t hurt to do something out of the ‘norm’ once in a while to get closer to achieving our dreams.

In fact, it’s absolutely necessary.

And of course, never stop dreaming!

To your success,
Stuart Stirling

    Hey Stuart,
    On this Thanksgiving weekend I want to thank you for the video. Rudyard Kipling once wrote, “To many times we get to the corner of the street and before turning the corner we walk away, not really knowing if we would have found success or not”.

    Jason had the dream as many of us have, he didn’t walk away and neither have I. Sometimes though I need the reinforcement, the little push to know yes I am on the right path.

    Hi Stuart! If this doesn’t make a person believe that success is possible, nothing will. Thanks for sharing this with us–just the shot in the arm I needed. I even got my wife in here to watch this one(yeah she needed Kleenex)
    Thanks again
