6. Lionel Messi
At the age of 11, he was already discovered as a future football star. However, at the same time, he was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency.
The treatment was far expensive than what his father could afford. Impressed with his talent, FC Barcelona picked him up and agreed to pay for his treatment, too. Messi had to move from his home country to Spain.
The football legend says, “I made a lot of sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream. That’s why I didn’t go out partying, or do a lot of other things.”
To live your dream will demand you to sacrifice many of your small desires. Do it anyway!
