Close your right eye. Now as you look at these words through your left eye, bring your left thumb and pointer finger together to create a small circle about the size of a dime. If you were to add a blur that would barely allow you to see this screen, you would be approaching the eyesight, Aaron Golub has had his whole life.

Golub joined us me on the Follow My Lead podcast to discuss his amazing story of being the first legally blind player to play college football. Not only will his story inspire you but it will have you thinking about the 3P’s to achieve your dreams.

  1. Planning – Setting a clear goal and objective for your dreams is the only way to start
  2. Passion – Taking the initiative to act on your plan each day and being excited about it will fuel achievement
  3. Perseverance – Having the will to never give up and work harder than anyone else in the room is the only path to success.
