No better example to remind us that yes, it is real, dreams come true.  Dare to dream, to believe in it, to see it happen.  Giannis Antetokoumpo, a Greek professional athlete for the Milwaukee Bucks, and today MVP of basketball in the NBA has surely proven that.  Although absorbed in poverty and hard work from an early childhood, he never gave up and is now a remarkable role model for youngsters and adults alike. His commitment to his values and principles as a person and towards family are honoring, and in spite of the hardships and turmoil, his perseverance is a lesson to be learned.

A member of a large family, with major financial difficulties, he grew up in Greece with his Nigerian immigrant parents and brothers, and has definitely paid his dues.  He keeps his humbleness in spite of his fame and sees only positiveness in everyone. He has now recently started a family of his own and with great pride he will continue to pass down those priceless fundamental beliefs to his children. Working hard and applying yourself even when you think you are running out of strength is that extra mile you go to make it happen, to make it from rags to riches!  Read on and share with friends and loved ones this amazingly inspirational selection of quotes Giannis has shared with the world, and be motivated and stimulated to pursue your own dream in sports or anywhere.
