This show is presented by Gracefully-Yours, favorite greeting cards for encouragement and thank you. Visit www.gracefully-yours.com for specials.
Football is the most popular sport in the world. According to statistics, football spectators number 3.5 billion, spanning across Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and North and South America. It might even be a good bet that football is watched by those living in the polar region.
Among the current generation of football players, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most, if not the most, popular. The 30-year old Portuguese athlete was born in Madeira, Portugal, one of the four children of working class parents. Although his early years were full of hardship, Cristiano Ronaldo today is one of the highest paid sportsmen in the world. His rise to success can teach us a thing or two about achieving our dreams.
Find your passion
Passion for what we do certainly matters. Some even consider it as an investment in a chosen career. Although we might not go to the extent of skipping meals like Ronaldo did, passion certainly allows us to bring more of “us” into an endeavor. It makes us more creative, energized, confident and persistent – qualities that contribute positively to the path of success.
Talent + Hard Work = Greatness
Stay fit and healthy
A good mentor can help pave the way to success
Shakira is featured on Life Lessons because we think she has something significant to teach others.
As a small girl she was rejected from the school choir and her music teacher told her that her voice sounded like a goat. If someone had said something like this to me I would probably be embarrassed to my core and would take on oath either to never sing again. But garnering the courage to sing infront of crowd in the same trait that was made fun of takes quite a character indeed. You need not fit everywhere: Her parents encouraged her saying “You have a beautiful voice, stick to what you are, don’t sing any less loud than what you think.” VALUE ORIGINALITY! The first two albums failed: Her first two albums Magia and Peligro, which were released in the early 1990s failed to achieve any commercial success. It took till 2006 for the phenomenal song “Hips Don’t Lie”. And in 2010 it was waka waka which has over 700 million views on youtube. What takes for someone to reach such a remarkable success- Persistence, patience, hard work, innovation, passion, belief, hope, dream, dedication. Giving it back Shakira is very well known for her involvement in philanthropic activity and charity work through her concerts. When she was young, her father took her to a local park to see the orphans who lived there and she said to herself ” One day, I am going to help these kids when I become a famous artist!” People have achieved a lot of things and some of them have decided to pay back.

Adele's life lessons come from her lyrics- all blissful moments of sensual indulgence. Our Top 5 life lessons learned from her lyrics.Don’t Believe Everything You Hear People tend to talk trash. A casual misspoken word can be the spark that turns into a blaze that ruins lives. In “Rumour Has It” Adele expresses her severe distaste for groundless statements with the line, “You've been telling people things that you shouldn’t be.” Although it is not in your power to control what others say, it is fully your decision when it comes to deciding what to believe.Be Cautious Because life is unexpected, it can be prudent to exercise a little bit of caution when it comes to matters of the heart. .Moving On In “Someone Like You,” Sometimes, your best play is to simply accept that, think good thoughts, and move on. Sometimes A Little Rage Is Good When you’re having a hard time moving on, you might need that burst of anger to help you finally see the truth that sets you free. Just like Adele says in “Rolling In The Deep”: “There’s a fire starting in my heart/Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark/Finally I can see you crystal clear.” Value Your Relationship With Your Kids “Hello” isn’t about an ex lover. It’s about being away from the people who are the most important aspect of your life: your children. In her lyrics, Adele laments over her guilt of being away from her kids. Take Adele’s song as a cautionary tale and always remember to put your kids first.
Life Lessons focuses on Lionel "Leo" Messi , the first and only player to top-score in four consecutive Champions League campaigns, and also holds the record for the most hat-tricks scored in the competition.

1. There is no substitute for talent.
2. You need a bit of luck and connections.
3. But it doesn’t matter if you come from a modest background.
4. If you are good you will get the opportunity to succeed, but you must still capitalise on the opportunity.
5. In the face of the challenge (childhood illness) persistence pays off.
6. Expert opinions are not always worth that much – there is a club out there who regrets passing over on the opportunity to sign the little maestro.
7. It is not about the physical ability, but the mental ability.
8. His first instinct is to seek the goal: it is uncanny how aware he is of where the goal is even if he has his back to the goal.
9. He sees gaps and takes gaps no one sees or takes.
10. The highest accolade is not money, but the recognition of your peers. (Not in the shallow, politicised style of the Oscars, but rather the spontaneous acknowledgement of your peers.) In the face of that adulation, his instinctive reaction is one of humility. Watch this and you will see what I mean.
