I can’t tell you guys how exciting it is to finally now be in the new year. I can already tell 2017 will be the best year of all them. Just like many people have normal resolutions for the new year, I also have many. Soccer of course, is one of the biggest loves I have. Playing, watching, learning, and talking more about soccer is my primary goal for the new year. Soccer has always been my first passion, growing up. I can’t imagine never playing the game again.
Just like any other athlete, looking to always get better is a big part of what I do. On a daily basis, I’m always looking for ways to get better on the field. There’s always something to do to get better as a soccer player, whether it’s running, sprinting, working on my touch, shooting, defense, etc. There’s never a day that goes by, where I’m not playing soccer somehow. It’s so important to become a better player- play as much as you can.
All the great soccer players grew up playing the game for hours every day. It was a way of life for many of the players. Some way or another all the greats would end up in Europe playing for a club team. All the money for soccer is in Europe. It has always been a goal of mine to play in the streets, fields, or beaches in Europe. There’s something special about seeing the soccer culture in Europe. It truly is a contagious experience.
Just like many other amazing soccer players, I will do everything I can to become the best player I possibly can. Juggling the soccer ball, playing in live game is important to becoming a better player. It all adds up. Over time with many hours, days, weeks, and years of hard work; the sky is the limit for the level of talent I can attain.
Having the patience to work through all the challenges and obstacles will be the biggest challenge of them all. It goes without saying, having the faith in one’s own self will separate from all the other competitor’s. Without a doubt, having the ability to block out all the negativity will allow for a different type of mindset. When you let other’s get into your mind is when things start to turn for the worst. In 2017 my goal is to make everything, all day & night about soccer. Becoming obsessed about the sport will allow me to become a much better player.
