Ronaldo, the man of fantastic dribbles is one of the most spectacular personalities to grace the game ever. Born in a poor family, he turned the coin upside down by becoming “the highest paid athlete of the time”. Playing the game for Manchester United and Real Madrid he brought new limits to the game – the sky. To play in the clouds of success where the hard-working man stands today, one needs to inculcate the following qualities from thresholds:
1.SUCCESS IS ALWAYS LIKE A 2-FACED COIN, GO FOR THE HEAD YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE:
At the age of 15, the master was diagnosed with a RACING HEART. He had an operation in which the laser was used to scorch the affected area of his heart. Due to the situation he could have left football but he treated them as mere minute hurdles on his path to triumph to be left behind. He brought himself back to the pitch only after a few days of surgery with all his enthusiasm.
2.GIVE YOUR CHALLENGE A WINK:
Ronaldo was expelled from school at age of 14 as he threw a chair at his teacher. Despite being a fatalistic situation, he then purely made soccer as his cornerstone which turned him into an international uproar. He also faced personal challenges when her mother suffered from breast cancer.
4.CONFIDENCE IS THE FIRST SECRET BEHIND EVERY ACHIEVEMENT:
Sir Alex Ferguson said that his conviction was at its utmost even at the age of 18. So, he had no ambivalence in handing Ronaldo the No. 7 shirt. Ronaldo exhibited his pledge early in the 2004 FA Cup Final. His team captured the trophy with Ronaldo scoring the first 3 goals.
5.HAVE THE SENSE THAT “EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE ” :
When Ronaldo jumps , 5G of G – force is produced on take off which is five times the potential of cheetah when he is in his full flight (almost next to impossible ) which empowers him to outstretch 44cm in the air from a standing start and 78 cm with a run up. This is 7cm more than the average NBA player. He has an awestruck free kick speed of about 13.1 kmph which is compared roughly with space shuttle while launching.
6.DON’T JUST ACCEPT CHALLENGES , CREATE THEM :
When he was a teenager, Ronaldo put himself through exigent rigorous workouts to become the best soccer player he could be. When he went to the gym, he would put weights on either foot before dribbling the soccer ball. He thought that this would improve his dribbling techniques as without the weights he would move even swiftly.
7.DON’T MAKE POVERTY A HINDERANCE TO SUCCESS:
Ronaldo was not born with a silver spoon. His family a poor, working class family where father was a gardener and his mother worked as a cook and a cleaning lady. He said he used to share the room with his siblings in childhood. He had never heard of the toys and Christmas presents in his childhood. But he proved with all his efforts that poverty is not destined but is man made.
8.RECORDS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN:
Ronaldo has broken so many records that we might miss some of them if we count them all. In 2003, he was signed to Manchester United and was paid $15 million. After being signed up by Real Madrid, Ronaldo had a gross of $450,000 per week.
9.WEAR YOUR GOLDEN HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE:
Cristiano once sold his golden boots to fund the schools in Gaza for underprivileged children. He even doesn’t have any tattoos on his body as he is a regular donator of blood. He even joined FIFA’s 11 for health foundation to generate awareness about HIV, malaria, obesity and drug addiction among children.
10.KEEP SHINING BECAUSE IT MAKES YOUR HATERS BLIND:
When you are way ahead of people, there are always the ones criticizing from behind. Same was the case with Cristiano whom his haters called arrogant and selfish. In response to his haters, he once said that people hate him because he is too “rich, handsome and talented.” This statement left his haters in bewilderment.
11.BECOME THE HARDEST WORKING PERSON YOU KNOW:
Soccer is not the only thing Ronaldo is going with. He also owns a fashion boutique called CR7 in Portugal. On the boutique’s website, the man himself models all of the clothes which is a remarkable way of ensuring his company’s success. He has even got his own mobile game called Head’s Up and interest in hotels, resorts and restaurants!
12.ACKNOWLEDGE THE ONES BEHIND YOUR SUCCESS:
Ronaldo gives the credits to his friend Albert for where he stands today. Once their coach gave them a life changing opportunity that whosoever between them would score more would find their way to academy in Lisbon. During the match in the end, Albert passed the ball to Ronaldo for he was a better player. Ronaldo didn’t forget the sacrifice and bought his jobless friend a car, a house and money to live on as a thank you.
13.BRING THE GAME INTO YOUR VEINS:
By the time he was 10 years old, he was already recognized as a kid who “ate, slept and drank soccer”. He loved the game so much that he missed meals or even jump off from his bedroom window at the time of doing his homework.
14.STRIVE TO BE OF A VALUE:
Ronaldo has record making 5 Ballon d’Or awards, the most for a European player and the first player to win four European golden shoes. He has won 26 trophies in his career including 5 league titles, five UEFA Champions league titles. In June 2010 Ronaldo became the 4th footballer to be represented as a waxwork in Madame Tussauds London. There is a museum named Museu CR7 dedicated to all his trophies, medals and photographs.
15.IF YOU DO NOT SACRIFICE FOR WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT YOU WANT BECOMES THE SACRIFICE:
Ronaldo’s entire family moved away from Lisbon, about 600 miles away for him to play in national juniors’ team. At that time, he was just 12. This was a huge cultural shock as his home city Madeira is closer to Africa than its mainland with its own unique accent.
In a nutshell, Cristiano Ronaldo , is the heart and soul of soccer of now and times to come and the greatest thing about him is that “HE WILL NEVER QUIT IN LIFE.”
