Everything is easy to watch, but nothing is easy in this world. Everything needs passion, commitment and trying to succeed in it.   Small things which we struggle and succeed makes a big difference in our life.  “You have to fight to reach your dream.  You have to sacrifice and work hard for it”.  A famous footballer said these words.  He is none other than Lionel Messi.  He proved the words by winning 7 trophies of the Ballon d’or.

Lionel Messi a quick word

Lionel Messi is an Argentine Football player who plays for Barcelona. He is considered to be one of best players in this world. He started his football career at the age of 13 and is still playing as a legend at the age of 34. He was popularly known as the youngest football player in the 1990s.

Here is a story about his success of Messi

Although Messi won the Ballon d’Or seven times, it was not easy and there was a struggle behind it.  Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo always have a tough competition as they both used the same technique. Messi always defeated Ronaldo as a great footballer, but here comes the twist.

The years 2013 – 2018 was a terrible match and was a hurdle against his football path. Cristiano Ronaldo won the matches beating Messi. However, Messi won the match of 2015 by his luck, but again started falling down. Everyone started to dislike Messi and started to love Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi din’t give up, he tried and came back with a shine as bright as sun. He won the 2019 and 2021 Ballon d’Or which made everyone love Messi again Trying has the power to kill the darkness in the world
