Lessons To Learn: Never Give Up!
« on: Mar 28, 2012, 03:31 PM »
This is the story of the football living legend, LIONEL MESSI.

Whether you are a Barca fan or not, everyone admits that Lionel Messi is a delight to watch playing football.

Messi plays for Barcelona FC.

He is a three-time FIFA World Player of the Year.

Recently, he scored five times (a Champions League record and also a personal record).

Recently in the Spanish la Liga, he scored two goals.

Messi has scored 53 goals in 55 matches for his club last season.

He already has 50 in 43 matches so far this campaign.

Many people believe he is one of the greatest football players the world has even seen.

But Messi has not always been successful.

At age ten, Messi faced a major threat to his future soccer career; he had a growth hormone deficiency.

This deficiency would limit his ability to cope with the physical demands of football.

Messi desperately needed growth hormones or he would have stopped growing at 4ft 7in but his father's health insurance was limited and couldn't cover the expensive treatment.

The story changed when Barcelona offered to pay for the hormone treatment in return for Messi signing for them aged just 13.

Today, Messi is scoring, Barca is winning and both Messi and Barca are happy and successful.

Few lessons to learn:

1. Your health challenge could seem to be a huge problem, but help is on its way.

2. Nothing limits you. Till date, Messi is relatively smaller than his mates, could be weak but he is still playing excellent football. You have no excuse.

3. God compensates for your weaknesses. Messi is short. As a result he has a low center of gravity. This makes it difficult for him to fall down easily. Messi has short legs, but they are fast too.

4. Finally, don't make judgement based on today, consider the future. While Messi was playing as a kid, he looked 2 years younger than his mates. If Barca had judged him based on that, they would have lost gold.

Wow!!!

In all, Messi's story confirms to me that:

"IT'S NOT WHAT YOU LACK THAT WILL SLOW YOU DOWN. NO! IT'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO PUT IT TO ITS BEST USE".

So let's settle this matter once and for all.

EVERYTHING you NEED to START your journey to GREATNESS is already WITHIN YOU.

You can. You must. You will.
