I Have A Dream...

Dreams. Everybody has them, whether they be big or small.

But, before I go on to talk about my own dreams, just ask yourself what your dreams are...

What are your dreams?
What are you going to do to achieve those dreams?

The first step in achieving your dream is to write it down, there is a quote I love which says: "Goals [dreams] which are not written down are just wishes." - so, if you want your dreams to be more than just a wish, get writing!!

Anyone can have a dream, it's whether or not they are willing to dedicate themselves to achieving that dream and are able to sacrifice certain pleasures in life to fulfil those ultimate goals. Without hard work and dedication (as Floyd Mayweather would say), then your dreams cannot and will not be achieved.

Dreams aren't easily achieved, sometimes you've got to fight your way through certain struggles in life and that in itself is a test, a test which determines whether or not you will ultimately, achieve your dreams. Everybody will at some point have a struggle in their life, a bit of a crisis! Whether that be big or small, well that's up to fate/God (whatever you believe in), but these hardships prepare you and if you can bite down on your gum shield and weather the storm then you have passed the test, if you've passed the test then you have taken one step closer to achieving your dream.

"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny..." C.S. Lewis

Unless you're willing to make the appropriate sacrifices to achieving your dream, it will not become reality. Dreams have to be worked hard for, sacrifices have to be made in order to achieve and you have to love and enjoy the process.

I have hundreds of dreams and goals, some minor, some major, but the most prominent dream and the biggest is: becoming a World Champion in the Sport of Boxing. That in itself is a huge dream to have, but life is too short not to aim high and strive to be the best, you have to set your aims high if you want to make something of yourself and be remembered as someone. Someone who achieved something amazing.

Steps to achieve that dream include:
- Training hard
- Training smart
- Eating and drinking well
- Training all aspects of my game, psychological, physical, etc.
- Gaining more experience as an amateur
- Turning Pro
- Competing as a Pro
- Winning titles and catching people's eye

These are just a small fraction of the total steps I need to follow in order to become a World Champion, but all steps that I am willing to take to achieve that ultimate dream.

The next question I want you to ask yourself is WHY... WHY do you want to achieve your dream?

Is it to be happy?
Is it to be famous?
Is it to help the less fortunate?
Is it for self satisfaction?

The most important thing you need to achieve your dreams for is YOU. Your dreams should be personal to you and be there for you to achieve for yourself.
Dreams don't have to be achieved purely for your own satisfaction however, but also for external reasons. I will run you through a few reason why I would like to Achieve my dreams...

- For myself
- To leave behind a legacy
- To make my family proud and to provide for them
- To prove to those who doubt(ed) me that it can be done
- To give back to all my friends and family

But a big reason I would like to be a World Champion is so that I could make a difference to other peoples lives. I'm aware that I could do that now by raising money, but to me life isn't just about money, but about experiences. I would love to be able to visit an ill child in hospital and for them to recognise my face, for them to see me as an idol and an inspiration, for them to be able to talk to one of their heroes about any of their worries and/or troubles and most importantly, so that they could see first hand that they can overcome adversity and that they can still achieve their dreams despite undergoing treatment for life threatening illnesses such as cancer.

I've been in their position, I have been there first hand, I've beaten cancer and gone through all the horror that comes with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but I have come out the other side, more positive and have come back stronger than before chasing down my dreams and throwing myself back into life. I would love to give youngsters that hope and inspiration that so many of my friends, family and heroes gave me.

Meeting Carl Froch was an amazing experience, as well as meeting so many of my heroes, so I know how much it would mean to these young, brave children to meet their heroes. So, one main reason I want to become a World Champion is not only for me, my friends and family, but for all those kids who have been taken away from a normal childhood and have had to endure the same struggles that I have and even worse.

I will push my body to the limit, I will make sacrifices, I will do whatever it takes to achieve my dreams, for me, my friends; family and most importantly all those little fighters who inspire me daily.
