The late Gordon Banks left a profound impact on Lucas, his message built confidence.
Confidence is something that not all of us posses, some take years to build it, others take months. But what if 15 years ago your current role model told you how difficult it was to get where they wanted to be but with determination they got there. I can guarantee you that you'd feel a lot more confident about achieving your goals and about your career aspirations.
Nothing is put on a plate and handed to you. Every step we take in life comes with hard work and determination, never be afraid to share the effort you put in that got you where you are today.
9 out 10 people will appreciate hearing how you got to where you are, how long it took you to get there and what you had to do to get there.
Build the confidence of another. It's free to share your journey.
“Hello Lucas, your dad told me you want to be a goalkeeper? Good lad. We always need good goalkeepers. Here’s some advice from me. First of all, you have to work hard. Being a goalkeeper is not easy. But the more you play… your eyes will get better at spotting the angles… great goalies have good anticipation… keep practising and you’ll get better and better at this… and be brave, too, if you lose or make a mistake. We all make them. I made some mistakes, but I never let anyone see that I was upset. Good luck Lucas.” This was a message from World Cup–winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks. He talks about difficulty, about hard work and about bravery.
