Do you know the story of the 1980 Men’s Olympic Ice Hockey Team? The “Miracle on Ice”?
Every great accomplish starts with a dream. We can’t expect to achieve anything great if we don’t first begin with a dream in mind and then fuel that dream every day. In this video, LIFE Founder and New York Times bestselling author Orrin Woodward shares the example of Herb Brooks and the 1980 U.S. Men’s Olympic ice hockey team and how they overcame the seemingly impossible odds to defeat the dominant Soviet Union team in the gold medal game at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Orrin explains that because coach Herb Brooks constantly believed in and fed the dream of winning a Gold medal, even when the team themselves didn’t believe, they were able to overcome all the critics and the odds to achieve the unthinkable and put their mark in the history books. As Orrin says, “No dream, no guts, no story.”
