If you are in sales and struggling, or just having issues with life, this true story can show you the effects of changes that can happen in your life to turn things around, also with watching this movie, you can recognize, it may take some time, like even years, gives you reason to not give up too soon. 

We are talking about college football, you may have heard, you may have watched the movie: We Are Marshall. I have watched the movie over 15 times. This, all happened in the town where I was born, Huntington, West Virginia.

It was in November 1970 when the Marshall University football team of 75 players, coaches and some of the towns recognized people chartered a plane returning on a rainy night from North Carolina.  The plane crashed when landing in the woods and nothing was recognizable. 

This a must-see movie! You will learn so much, things like motivation, inspiration, persistence, commitment. One of the key people in the movie is Matthew McConaughey. 

This town population around 20,000 deeply distressed, And starting over to create a new team is something many people do not want, others do feel it would show honor to those lost. 

Seeing this movie will help you get over any procrastination in your life. And it did take time, but in the 1990's Marshall University football team won more games than any university in the United States. 

Still today fifty two years later at the same month, of the same week of the same day this fountain on campus the water is turned off in remembrance of all of those who were lost.

I hope your day is as great as mine.

The story of the deaths of the Marshall football team and how the University and the community rebounded over time is a terrific story.
