Lionel Messi; the Story of his Life!

Sometimes, dreaming is not enough and eagerness to fulfill that dream is too much. It is always important to consider time, effort and support from those people who are concerned to the dreamer. And that solely was not even enough to reach the highest peak of the ladder that the dreamer wanted to step to. It is important to know the meaning of commitment and its difference to just being concerned.

Being concerned is just giving a percentage of your time or planning and thinking way to step on to your dream whenever opportunity comes but being committed is giving yourself 100% effort and time and not just planning the way to reach your goal but putting that plans into action. Meaning to be able to reach the upper part of the ladder of success, it has to be worked on. This is the fact that one of our star on the article believed.

Though this guy played his favorite sport during his early age, he did not able to evade a serious sickness and this was not considered as a hindrance to pursue his dreams, proving his worthy of what he is now and where he stands after all the success that he worked for.

He is actually the 2012 Best International Athlete for ESPY and member of the 2013 ESM Team of the Year, but more than that he was one of the record titlist of Guinness World Records for the most goal in the year. He is considered if not the only one is one of the greatest footballer of all time, his name? Leo Messi.

He was not able to attend high school due to his health condition during his time, his family needed to transfer to Barcelona to treat and fix his health ailment.

It was his willingness and capabilities in football that made him hope and strive to be cured and football was also the reason why a certain Carles Rexach who happened to be the Director of FC Barcelona offered a support for his medicine and other necessity for his Growth Hormone Deficiency, in exchange of his membership to FC Barcelona. And so the elder Messi, Leo’s father allowed him to sign a contract with the FC Barcelona, even the contract is written on a tissue paper and they moved to Barcelona for training and to pursue Leo’s dream on football as well as to attend to his sickness. As his former team who also an avid fan of him when it comes to playing but not willing to help his family for his medical condition, Leo Messi attended the Club’s Youth Academy for his initial practice and training.

Football is Messi’s life, he devoted himself to the game and he always had given his 100% dedication every time he is in the arena. On his club football career, it was not easy for him to do the game with the others at first but on his talent in playing the game is superficial and he won the hearts of his members. He played first on Barcelona’s junior team showing his strength and capabilities of playing though he was still considered neophytes during that time, he was almost released to be dismembered on the club during the group’s financial shortages but his coaches knew that Messi would be worthy to be part of the team so they fought their right to sustain who ever players they wanted to be retained.

It was mention above that Messi had suffered from an ailment during his childhood, and his family needed to defend on others just to support his medical necessity. This part of his life is one of the reasons why he had thought of building a foundation that would help and assist less fortunate sick children who cannot maintain their medications and those who cannot afford hospitalization for the cure of their sickness. It was called “The Leo Messi Foundation”. This charity’s objective is to provide financial support for the education and health welfare of the needy children.
