What is the Complete News?
Noted down the date 18 December 2022, Argentina’s Lionel Messi became the Fifa World Cup winner after defeating France’s Kylian Mbappe. In the eyes of millions of football fans, Messi cemented his position as one of the greatest of all-time players after winning the World Cup.
However, Messi has a lot of trophies stacked in his case, including seven Ballon d’Or awards. The only thing missing from his case was a World Cup trophy. But he won that also this Sunday after defeating France in a 4-2 penalty shoot-out.
One more trophy he added to the collection is the Golden Ball, which he won as the Best Player, scoring seven goals in the Fifa World Cup 2022.
During an interview, Messi mentioned that being the greatest of all time in football has never been his goal; he always wanted to be a World Cup Champion and bring the trophy to home Argentina.
He said it doesn’t change anything for him to be the best or not. Instead of achieving football superstardom, he is always focused on scoring smaller goals. According to him, it is like completing one goal at a time before moving into the next.
Firstly, he dreamed of being the best professional player and then he tried to surpass himself and achieve new goals every year. Messi claimed that he follows Carol Dweck’s theory of growth mindset, which states that talent is only a starting point.
According to Carol Dweck, people with a growth mindset believe that their basic abilities can be developed through hard work and dedication. From Will Smith to Mark Cuban, many celebrities are also out there with this mindset.
According to the studies, students taught about a growth mindset can improve their test scores. It is evident Messi is one of the greatest football players ever in the world, and his growth mindset helped him to achieve what he wanted, whether it was a Ballon O’dor or a World Cup trophy.
But his strong work ethic and discipline have also been key to his continued success. Year after year and day after day, he stayed consistent with his hard work to keep improving his skills.
It was being said that it took him around 16 years over five World Cup tournaments to land his elusive prize.
