Life Is Like Football

The main ambition of every footballer is either to score a goal or defend a goal, so also in life everybody has an ambition, a goal that we all strive hard to achieve.

Only footballers who work hard become great winners and achievers of the game, in life if you don’t work twice as hard as you should then your goal won’t be achieved

A goal can never be scored in football by sitting around, you need to attack the ball and hit it when you see an opportunity, In life if you don’t make moves towards your goal you won’t be able to achieve, but when you take risk and opportunities then success is lurking.

Defenders are obstacles to players trying to score but only those who can overcome the obstacles get goals, Success in life comes only to those who have overcome obstacles.

In football you can’t score the chances you don’t take, if you refuse to make a move in life you can’t achieve anything.

Your missed shots are your failures, but when you learn from the shots you missed you’ll score the next time you try, Failure in life is a step close to achieving success, when you learn from failure you’ll achieve success the next time you try.

Football is easier analysed than played, so also it is easy to talk about what you want to achieve in life than it is to achieve it.

Perfect and consistent practising lead to football perfection so also in life the more you attempt your goals the close you get to achieving it.

In football, If a team wants to intimidate you physically and you let them, they’ve won, so also in life if you see your ambition as too big for you, you’ll fail.

The rules of football are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it
until it does, in life it your goal seems easy attempt it with all your energy, if it seems hard attempt it till you achieve it

In football, If you are first you are first. If you are second, you are nothing, In Life those that succeed will be remembered not those that are so close to succeeding

In football, You have to learn to predict the next play before it happens, In life your ability to project the future will always give you an edge.

If you fail to win in football, you’ll lose many things, If at the end of trying in life, you don’t achieve your aim many things you invested will be lost

Football requires players to discipline be highly and to work hard. There is also a beautiful life
lesson in the scrutiny and evaluation process. This is like life, where if we hope to improve and grow, we have to take responsibility for that growth, and surround ourselves with people who can help.

Football provides a variety of challenges that will test and help to build players perseverance. These are all things that will challenge players emotionally, and might tempt him to quit but if they can persevere, they’ll achieve greatness at the end, the Ups and Downs of life might tempt us to give up but if we can strive to continue we’ll be a success at the end.

Football is like life, it requires perseverance, self- denial, hard work sacrifice, dedication and respect
for authority.

God Is the referee
The angels are the linesmen
Your family and friends are the fans
Earth is the football pitch

Remember to always keep your head up and shoot for your goals.
