NUMBER 23: JAMIE CARRAGHER
When it comes to footballers, there are very few able to speak their mind on issues related to the game like Jamie Carragher. Never one to hold back, “Carra” was a players player you enjoyed watching because when you went the match you knew he would give you the perfect work ethic.
Jamie Carragher can teach you many a lesson about life. He is a man from humble beginnings who worked hard to achieve the success he has enjoyed in his life so far. I’ve taken many of his examples on how to carry onself into my own life. Be it the workplace, on the field or with friends. Loyalty, commitment, dedication and attitude are what Carragher carries in abundance.
He grew up in a tough neck of the Merseyside woods and had to dig his heels in from day dot. We are not all lucky enough to be born into success. Sometimes, we need to make our own and this is exactly what Carragher has done his entire life. He never gave up and reaped many rewards because of his work ethic.
These are life long aspects we can all carry through our lives regardless of where we have come from or where we are going. If you not yet read his autobiography or steer away from sports biography, can I suggest you make an exception to the rule and pick up Carraghers?
