If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be to inspire more kids to become involved in learning the sport of basketball. Available coaches would educate the children about the physical and mental mentality that comes with the game, while also improving their mental and physical heath. Also, coaches would take the steps of showing the children where working hard will get them and what opportunities will become available to them at a young age. I would open a facility in Florida with plenty of gym access and coaches that can tutor the kids on certain days. The children would always have goals to work on when they have one on one time with themselves and they would have the opportunity to appear in basketball games in front of recruiting coaches. I believe it would change the world because it gives children an early start at working hard towards goals that may become their future dream and the sport teaches them character, discipline, to not be selfish, to never quit, to work hard, to earn what they are working for, and also helps get their mind of anything negative going on in their life at the time. This facility would give the kids somewhere to go when they feel like they have no where else to go. Goals that I would set for myself to make my dream a reality would be saving money, and working harder than I ever have before without any excuses.
