Kingdom Hope was inspired by my own journey. Ever since I was a young boy, all I ever wanted to do was to play professional football/soccer. It is a dream that I managed to achieve, but along the way there were many setbacks and trials that I had to overcome. I came close to giving up on my dream after suffering a serious leg injury at the age of 15, becoming influenced by negative people, and being told by several “experts” that I would never make it. Then a couple of mentors stepped into my life, which encouraged and motivated me to realize my dream. I told myself that once I achieved my dream, I would in return help asmany people who will find themselves in the same negative position I was in, to achieve their dreams as well. Not just in soccer, but in all areas of life. That is what Kingdom Hope is about. That is what I am about.
Kingdom Hope is the vehicle I use to help people achieve a level of greatness in their lives. Every program is designed to inspire, coach, and serve people into realizing their dreams.
It’s no longer news that football is the most popular sport globally; however, some people might want to beg to differ. Many people claim that basketball is the most popular sport globally; the other majority opts for American football. With most of these arguments well made, there needs to be clarity. Despite these arguments, the stats of football speaks for itself. The game of football is one that connects people from various tribes and races all across the world.
For instance, let’s compare the team football banner of Chelsea Fc to that of the basketball banner of the New York Red Bulls. You will find out that many people who don’t live in America won’t recognize the New York Red Bull banner, but you’ll discover that almost every country on the planet will recognize the football banner of Chelsea FC. What makes the Chelsea Fc football banner so popular? First of all, they’ve got fans in every country all over the world. Secondly, Chelsea FC is one of the most dominant football clubs globally, making its football banner well renowned. The New York Red Bull Basketball team is top-rated; however, their popularity is mainly in America and not in every country worldwide. It might come as a surprise to you, but basketball is not recognized in so many countries, but football is recognized in every country worldwide. You can now see that the difference is quite clear. For better enlightenment, let’s take a broader look into some of the reasons why the game of football is this popular. (more…)
