Hi Team...

I hope you had an amazing weekend... 

Yesterday was a wild one- I started with a spin class in a room that was 100* (no fans)- and was ready to pass out...

Then, recovered at the beach to get a nice base coat :) (not something I do very often- or often enough!)

But yesterday got me thinking...

I was thinking about a chapter I wrote in my new book, Habits of a Champion Team...

(Click here to order a signed copy)

And one of the chapters is about Being a Dream Builder or a Dream Killer...

A few years ago I was in upstate NY speaking a conference alongside my first strength coach- Coach Mac...

We were speaking together and he shared a very special message to those "leaders" in attendance...

He told everyone: You can either be a Dream Builder or a Dream Killer- you decide...

And this got me thinking... 

How often do we kill our own dreams in our head?

How often by a lack of encouragement and excitement do we aid in the death of the dreams of others?

What if we were excited about somebody's idea-- not matter how "dumb"...

Because a lot of perceived "dumb" ideas went on to change the World...

I mean how dumb truly is social media.. it is dumb, but, it has changed the World.. 

Think of all those ideas on the Shark Tank that are "dumb"... then they go on to sell millions of dollars in goods...

Dream killing is an epidemic..

It is rooted in low self-confidence of the person killing the dream....

Instead of killing dreams, assist others in building themselves up so they can execute on what they believe...

I have found this to be the secret to being a great coach...

Encouragement over discouragement...

Who am I to tell somebody "that will never work"....

My buddy, Kevin Plank who founded Under Armour first started making his shirts out of women's lingerie fabric- look what he went on to build..

You see, we are too quick to kill dreams..

Instead, give your dream a shot..

Allow somebody else to give theirs a shot..

What happens is everybody benefits and learns...

I believe we all need an R & D Department (research and development) in our lives...

Give things a shot...

Dismiss them only after you gave them a shot...

This week, build a dream... give something a shot!

Let's go!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
