I find that life lessons are always hidden in every great story, no matter what it is. In fact, with football, this is very much the case. Playing and watching (in my case) is fun, but the sport teaches more than just athletic skills. If one looks closely enough, you will see that football is rich with great lessons, lessons we could all use to navigate life.Like most fans, I watched the incredible 2019 Champions League match between Liverpool and Barcelona; a very emotional, high suspense game and arguably one of the most entertaining football matches I have seen. Liverpool was three goals to nil down in the first leg, and nobody gave them a chance except their die-hard fans and the players themselves. And of course, the final result was entirely different, and Liverpool more than redeemed themselves.From this encounter, I learnt that:Hard work pays off – one must work hard to achieve their goals and fulfill their dreams. Not to sound corny, but hard work does pay off. Liverpool came from behind to clinch the victory!Self-belief – in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, your self-belief can be the difference between victory and defeat.Attitude is what matters - it takes a positive attitude to achieve positive results. It is important to take steps towards achieving your greatest potential by monitoring your attitude.Watching Liverpool overcome the odds to win the game was a reminder that sport is more than just game. If you look carefully, it may also inspire how you approach life.Let’s exchange stories, shall we? Share your great comeback story and your lessons.
