  3. 3. David Beckham is an international sensation. Between being one of England’s best footballers, marrying Pop Icon Victoria Beckham, and endorsing famous brands such as Pepsi and Armani, Beckham has become a household name in all corners of the globe. At the ripe age of 16, Beckham dropped out of school to play for the Manchester United training division. Impressing right from the start, he broke into the first team against Brighton and Hove Albion on September 23rd 1992, signing his first professional contact with the side shortly after in 1993. Motivational Lessons:
  4. 4. Featuring the up and coming talent, 1996 saw Manchester United win the FA Premier League, FA Cup as well as the FA Community Shield, securing Beckham’s place in the spotlight. Beckham’s fame quickly turned to infamy, however, as he gained a reputation for his short temper after being sent off in a crucial fixture against Argentina in the World Cup of 1998 for an apparent kick to the back of Diego Simeone’s leg.
  5. 5. Shortly after the 1998 World Cup there was great controversy when David Beckham was considered for England’s Captaincy. Still incensed by Beckham’s behaviour recent on the pitch, people felt that he was being rewarded for his actions rather than punished. Yet it was precisely this controversy that fuelled Beckham to change his attitude and, once donning the captain’s armband, used the opportunity to win back the trust and respect of the English Fans. One of the secrets to David’s success is his support system. David’s parents – Ted and Sandra – attend most of his matches and his wife – Victoria – and four children attended every match.
  6. 6. In the same year Manchester United won the Champion’s League title, an Intercontinental Cup, as well as the English Premier League title. The impact was immediate. In 1999, David Beckham was awarded player of the year by FIFA following a win in the FA Cup, as well as second place in the highly coveted European Ballon d’Or awards.
  7. 7. Despite leaving his first professional club Manchester United in 2003, Beckham continued to enjoy a hugely successful international and club career through the following years, making important appearances for Read Madrid, LA Galaxy and, finally, Paris Saint Germaine. David is also known for donating money to various charities across the world. Before announcing his retirement in 2013, Beckham demonstrated a charitable side rarely seen in the world of football by donating all his waged earned at Paris Saint Germaine to the largest children’s hospital in the French Capital.
  8. 8. “I don't think I'm really in a situation to complain, because I consider myself to be privileged to be doing what I do”. “Hindsight is a wonderful thing”. “I'm a strong person, I'm a strong family man, I'm a strong husband and a strong father.” “I still look at myself and want to improve.” “I know I've been given a talent which can't disappear just like that. For four games I didn't perform like I can. I want to prove that's right.” “The secret of the team's success is easy - unity and hard work.” Best Quotes:
  9. 9. "Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
