Lionel Messi, was born in June 24, 1987 in Argentina. He is a footballer who plays as a forward  for La Liga club FC Barcelona , also serves as the captain of his country's national team. With four Balloon D'or(2009,2010,2011,2012) can be officially considered the best player in the world, despite so many individual virtues, he is  also a remarkable team player.

First, before I share with you what I intended to share , as you know today is his  birthday I like to take this opportunity to wish Lionel Mess a best and joyful birthday.

Second, there are few lessons or call it inspiration we can from his life and career ( as posted on the net by Kdk4Christ).
At age ten , Messi faced a major threat to his future footballing career- a growth hormone deficiency. This would limit his ability to cope with the physical demands of football.

Messi needed growth hormones or he would have stopped growing at 4ft 7in. His father’s health insurance was limited and couldn’t cover the expensive treatment.

The story changed when Barcelona offered to pay for the hormone treatment in return for Messi signing for them aged just 13. Today, Messi is scoring, Barca is winning and both Messi and Barca are happy and successful.

Few lessons.
1. Employers need to see the gold in their staff. In that physically- slow boy with health challenges was a star of the future. Invest in your staff

2. Your health challenge could seem to be a huge problem, but help is on its way.

3. Nothing limits you. Till date, Messi is relatively smaller than his mates, could be weak but he is still playing excellent footbal. You have no excuse.

4. God compensates for your weaknesses. Messi is short. As a result he has a low center of gravity. This makes it difficult for him to fall down easily. Messi has short legs, but they are fast too.

5 Finally, don’t make judgement based on today, consider the future. While Messi was playing as a kid, he looked 2 years younger than his mates. If Barca had judged him based on that, they would have lost gold.
