Train efficiently to become a world class footballer.
Today Footballer starts our first customer on the Couched Lance system. His name is Jordan and he's a 29 year old former U.S. Army soldier. He is dedicated and believes in our system. We will take him from 0 to 100 a world class level in 3 months. We will record the results of the study and present a case study at the end of 3 months.
Harry Kewell was awarded the Greatest Ever Australian Footballer by a Foundation and gave an interview on his thoughts on the achievement.
The video can be found on YouTube. Here are some selections of his thoughts on the honor.
What do you look for at this point in your career (Harry is in England at this time still playing and looking for a club)?
I still push myself to play at the highest level. So wherever I go I'll be looking to play week in week out forcing myself making the manager think I want to be there. I'm not going to go somewhere and just relax. You know and just think ok I've done my hard work now. No I want to go push myself and I still think I can.
How important do you think it is for someone like Bret Holman (young Australian player) to play in the premiership?
For someone like Bret to step up to make the switch from the dutch League to the premier league. I think he'll enjoy it. I think at the start he'll find it a little bit different from the Dutch league. He's that kind of player that can adapt. He can ride a challenge. He's quite strong. He's quite fit. He knows how to adapt quickly. So I actually think that he'll fit in very well not only in his team but I think he'll adapt well to the premier league. He's stepped up his game in the last couple years. So maybe it's his time to shine.
Our next generation coming through there's a lot of feeling that they don't have the same fight the same desire that you guys had to really make a career. For those of you that went to the very highest level the highest that we've ever had. If you had something to say to the youth, let's say to a boy who's 16, 17 now trying to make a career. The lesson from your career. What would it be to them?
I don't think it's a problem here. I think it's a problem generally in football. And not so much in the countries of South America or in the less fortunate countries because it's a do or die situation. Where you have to be good. You have to make it. Because if you don't make it there's not another 5 or 6. There's another 500 or 600 players that are gonna make it so you push yourself to a limit. I believe Australian even in England now some of the young boys even when I was at Liverpool they get it too easy. They get things given to them at a lot earlier on. Whereas when I grew up I was 16. I started from the very bottom. I learned my trade. And I believe that to be successful in any business you have to start from the bottom and work your way up. You just can't be given something straight away and expect to be great at it... So I believe they should start from the bottom, work their way up like I had to. They all had to start from the bottom and then once they get there, they appreciate it.
So it's part ambition that these guys have to want to go to the top. But to get there What I think a lot of these kids don't understand is the hard work that you and all these top guys put in to get there. The daily grind to get through injuries to do all of these things. It's a serious sacrifice?
There was a comment made... they asked the 5 best players in the world like Maradona, Pele, Keegan, Cryuff, and Beckenbauer what makes a great player? All of them said except for 1. 1 said 90%, 1 said 95% -- they all said hard work. You've gotta have a bit of a gift a little bit of talent but the rest is hard work. If you don't have that attitude then there's no chance of making it. If you didn't have to work hard then I'm sure that everyone in the world would be a footballer.
This is true hard work is the difference between being an average professional athlete and being Michael Jordan. Hard work is the difference between being an average player in La Liga and being Lionel Messi/Cristiano Ronaldo. The great players work incredibly hard to reach and maintain the highest level. The amount of work they put in is incredible as you can see in the New Science on Football post on Footballer's Facebook page. This is what it takes to reach, stay at, and establish yourself at the top.
I was in Walgreens yesterday and ran into a young UNC American Football player. I told him that my Soccer Training Company was considering developing systems for other sports and asked him if he was interested in something that would teach him to hit, throw, and kick like a world class NFL player in 3 months. He told me no because as he said he was already playing football for UNC and that was like a job and that he wasn't interested in putting in any more work. When I asked him specifically if he wanted to do extra work to make it to the league... he smiled and said no.
So that's the problem the kids with the talent to make it don't recognize that these veterans at the highest level are putting in hours of extra work, pushing themselves to the absolute limit, and executing perfect technique at every moment to reach the top level. That's why veterans embarrass rookies and young players in the league. They're there because they outworked everyone else and earned the right to be there. There are no shortcuts in life. There are no excuses. Winners never quit. They outwork everyone and keep going until they have met their goals. That is one of the truths of life.
Learn how smart athletes outwork everyone else in their competition pool to become the best. Train hard to apply yourself to the straight fundamentals of the game to turn your weaknesses into strengths during the offseason. Visit our store Footballernow.com/shop.html to own our systems today.
