My Story

Jim Morris is no stranger to big dreams. Since he was five years old, he passionately yearned to play baseball in the major leagues. However, despite all his hard work and determination, a series of unfortunate events and injuries scuttled his career before he was twenty-five. Doctors told him he would never play again.

Then at age thirty-five—after a string of highly implausible events and at an age when most players are retiring— Morris found himself on the mound as a relief pitcher for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. His return to the game was so incredible that Disney made his story into a heartwarming film—The Rookie—with a stellar performance by Dennis Quaid. It was released to popular acclaim and was a huge box office success. It won the ESPY for Best Sports Movie in 2002 and the CAMIE award for Character and Morality in Entertainment.


Have you ever given up on a dream? Whether that’s in business, life or, for me, it was pitching in major league baseball. When you step out to make a difference, you will face trials and the brutal force of resistance. Any effort to make changes in your life and in the lives of others will generate pushback.

It’s unavoidable.


I wrote a book called Dream Makers where I share my story of overcoming life’s toughest obstacles and give you the 7 fundamental principles I’ve learned that will change your life so you can achieve your dreams & become a dream maker for others!
