Winning Begins With a Plan – And A Dream
“Winning is just a by-product of many, many short-range goals that must be accomplished along the way.”
These words, penned by legendary high school football coach Bob Ladouceur, describe the approach that resulted in the De La Salle Spartans‘ 151-game win streak that shattered all records for any American sport – now the subject of a major motion picture, When the Game Stands Tall, in theaters August 22.
American Family Insurance is featured in the film, which highlights the remarkable journey of the coach and team’s trek from perennial sub-.500 seasons to undisputable national powerhouse – a journey filled with hard work, dedication and commitment to a grand vision.
At American Family, we believe everyone has the power within themselves to make their dreams come true. Sometimes it just takes a little encouragement. That’s why we’re continually offering a variety of resources to help you pursue the activities that keep you inspired.
And once you’ve achieved your dreams, we’re right by your side, ready to help you protect them.
Declare Your Commitment
The De La Salle Spartans football team (Concord, Calif.) knows that achieving dreams takes dedication. At the start of every season, players fill out a commitment card declaring what they will accomplish during the coming months. It’s an approach you, too, can take as a first step to achieving your dream. Get started now by downloading a commitment card, just like the ones the Spartans use – then share your card on Instagram with hashtag #longlivedreams.Share Your Commitment Today

Pursue Your Dream
Just like life itself, pursuing a dream is more about the journey than the destination. Make the most of your adventure by planning the course. Here are four steps to make you wiser, stronger and more confident on the road to fulfilling your dreams.
Immerse yourself in your dreams. Think about what inspires you and makes you happy. Consider your favorite activities and hobbies, personal strengths, and the people who are most important to you. Then, declare your dream – give it a name.
Turn your dream vision into a plan of action. Create a list of specific goals for yourself with achievable checkpoints. These checkpoints will create a tangible roadmap to achieving your dreams.
Encourage others to help you achieve the goals you’ve defined. From professional advisors to friends and family, make yourself accountable to those who may have a shared interest in your dream and can help you stay on track.
Share the triumphs and trials of your dream journey with others. Be a mentor. Be a leader. By inspiring others to imagine something bigger within themselves, you may help them realize their dreams.
