Now, let’s take a look at the success story of Lionel Andres Messi:
Lionel Andres Messi popularly known as Messi, is a renowned and one of the greatest soccer players of our time. He is also the highest earning footballer in the world. He plays the forward position for FC Barcelona and Argentina national team. Messi wasn’t born with a golden spoon in his mouth. He was from a poor family but he was destined for greatness. Messi’s father: Mr. Jorge Messi, was a factory steel worker while his Mother: Mrs. Maria Cuccittin, worked as a part time cleaner. His parents were not financially buoyant but they were excellent at parenting. 
At the age of 11, Messi encountered one of his greatest life-challenges; he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency which restricted his growth. He was the shortest player in his team- among his age grades, but that didn’t discourage Messi. Even in the midst of challenges, he strived to survive.
Messi’s talent in soccer was so irresistible that football clubs started showing interest in Him. Argentina’s River plate FC showed interest in Messi’s talent and was willing to sign him in as their player but the deal was fruitless because they lacked the fund to sponsor Messi’s medical bill which costs $900 per month. Messi was rejected by this club because of his health condition. What can be more discouraging than this? Yet, Messi never gave up. Messi’s optimism rewarded him at the age of 13, when the sporting director of FC Barcelona: Carlex Rexach, was made aware of messi’s talent in soccer. Carlex discovered that Messi was greatly talented and decided to invest in him. He offered Messi a contract written on a napkin paper and also, offered to sponsor Messi’s medical bills with the condition that Messi relocates to spain. What a great offer? “A man’s gift maketh way for him.” Messi and his father moved to spain where Messi was enrolled into the club’s youth Academy-known for training and producing excellent footballers. Messi was determined to judiciously utilize the opportunity given to him. So, he trained vigorously well and proved himself worthy which made him have his first appearance for Barcelona at the age of 16. In may 2005, He broke record as the youngest player to ever score a goal. There are many lessons to learn from the success story of this great footballer.
