Growing up in a dysfunctional household is tough.
It can feel like you are in a nightmare.
The only things that can keep you going day-to-day are your hopes and dreams.
Jerry West has a fantastic story to tell. He’s been through it all.
Just like me and many others, he dealt with significant adversity as a child.
He managed to persevere and achieve at the highest levels in spite of every difficulty.
Dreams are the light that brightens your way in the darkness.
Stop thinking of hardship as a detriment. Look at it as your extraordinary power.
