I Believe In You

I believe in you.

For the past 2 weeks I have been traveling across the countryside of Italy & Croatia.

During that time I did a lot of thinking about potential posts I wanted to make for the site.

Nothing came to me.

I was drawing a blank as to what I should write.

This was a problem as I needed some type of content for the site heading into the weekend.

While at the gym this morning it finally came to me…

I started Reel Gamer because I want to help you grow your YouTube/Twitch channels.

More importantly I started this site because I want to let you know that you will always have someone by your side that believes in you.

I believe in your dreams. I believe in your hopes. I believe in your future aspirations & I even believe in your failures.

I believe that you can accomplish all the things you aim for in your life.

Next time someone thinks your crazy or stupid for dreaming big, remember that I believe in you.

We all get one life. One chance to accomplish our dreams. Don’t waste that opportunity.

You can & you will succeed & I will be right by your side.

HollinsThumbLive Elevated.

It’s a phrase on a t-shirt you will often see Ryan Hollins, NBA center for the L.A. Clippers, wearing.

It’s more than just a phrase on a t-shirt though.

It’s a life style. It’s a way of life.

It’s excellence.

It’s how Hollins perceives the World around him. Not in a negative way that so many of us often view it.

It’s how he rebounded from getting cut from the first ever basketball team he tried out for, to making his life long dream of making it to the NBA come true.

In the latest episode of the Raise Your Game Podcast I sit down with Hollins to talk about his life, his love for gaming & how you can get ahead in your own life.

The latest guest on the Raise Your Game Podcast is Slump City who introduced the above experiment to me.

Slump enthusiastically shared this with me explaining it came from a mentor of his…Tony Robbins.

The deeper meaning is that if you aren’t looking for success how do you ever expect to find it?

Did you see GREEN when you were looking for RED?

During that time he has taken Zig’s advice and applied it to his Twitch channel and has quickly become one of the go to Madden Ultimate Team resources in the community.
