When we are young we believed that our dreams could come true but as we age our dreams become smaller and often we don’t have any dreams at all. Why do we as a society thunder down on other peoples dreams?

What are your dreams? Not your goals but your dreams for your future. Having a dream is always much bigger than a goal and I believe our goals are what can lead us to the dream. Its just so sad that people are dictated by the attitudes of others and often close family but if you aim low you can only achieve what you aim for.

We need to resurrect the attitude to dreams that we had as children. When you dream, think big, far bigger than your thinking now and go for it. Don’t let anyone put you off your dream, don’t let negative talk both from within and without stop your progress.

We have to stop living for today, we need to be forward focus and we need to show our children’s generation that as you age your ability to dream and strive for that dream doesn’t die.

I know it is easy to get caught up in the robustness of life but this is a distraction from what you are really meant to be doing. In fact ask yourself “What are my dreams”? I asked myself this exact question and realised that like many others I didn’t have a dream but now I am more determined than ever to determine what my dreams are and how Im going to achieve it.

I fully believe that you are not given the power to dream something if you don’t have the power to achieve it. Over the next couple of weeks see how people react to your dreams and you will be surprised how the enemy can work through even the people closest to you.

Never stop dreaming and make sure these dreams are bigger than you could ever imagine but also make sure you do good for the world as you move along the path to achieving it.


Hello from Shanghai. We have been here now for just over a day and after a long 11 hour flight the players have recovered well and will be ready to play Tuesday evening.

Hydration is a major issue in travel and I am happy that out of 18 squad members only 1 was dehydrated post flight. The players are mindful of their hydration status and I also believe the use of Gastrolyte helped this situation.

On such a flight players were also advised to be mobile thus we stretched regularly during the trip and as it was a day flight normal sleeping was able to follow the flight.

This morning we had a recovery session (mobility circuit) and then an evening session so I am happy with the present situation. As much as possible on away games you must take the issues of being away out of the equation.
