Everyone wishes to be great in life but only few pay the price greatness, which is patience, consistency, diligence and punctuality. If you do not have these virtues embedded in you, the pursuit for greatness might just be only a mirage. It is good to Dream big and think big, but dreaming without hardwork, consistency and patience, will just be a slide down the drain.
The former Nigerian Super Eagles player and Captain, Kanu Nwankwo, popularly called Papilo,has shared the story of his journey to the success and the hall of fame in Football. Arsenal legend Kanu, revealed how he use to walk 7km just to go and play football on bare foot while growing up.

I grew up like every other normal African child, I would come back from training,help my parents out and I had the belief and trust in God that one day I will make it,he added.
