Learn How to Overcome Obstacles From Rudy Ruettiger

December 25, 2015 12:00 PM

“When you achieve one dream, dream another. Getting what you want is only a problem if you have nowhere to go next. Dreaming is a lifetime occupation.”

That moving statement was made by Rudy Ruettiger, the University of Notre Dame football player who, against all odds, lived out his dream of playing for the Fighting Irish. Ruettiger will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 Top Producer Seminar on Jan. 27.

Ruettiger earned a spot on the legendary team after overcoming many obstacles including a humble upbringing, dyslexia and a diminutive stature. He eventually suited up for one game and hit the field in the last 27 seconds of a skirmish against Georgia Tech. Ruettiger made it count, sacking the opponent’s quarterback.

His game-changing play became one of the greatest moments in sports history and inspired the hit movie, “Rudy.” Just like today’s business-minded farmers, Ruettiger isn’t easily daunted by endless obstacles, pessimism or hard work.
