They don’t show …..

His team were losing 3-0 at half-time in the 2005 final of the world’s most prestigious club football competition, The Champions League.

His final words to his Liverpool team as they ran out for the second half were, “The record books don’t show the score at half-time.”

Liverpool roared back with three goals in six minutes to turn the game on its head, and went on to beat AC Milan on penalties. And manager Rafa Benitez booked his place in history.

The route to success lies in two words, persistence and resistance.

Persist in what must be done, and resist what doesn’t need to be done.

As someone once said, “The road to failure is actually the path of least persistence.”



An Englishman an Irishman and a Scotsman were in a pub, talking about their sons.

My son was born on St George’s Day,” commented the English man. “So we decided to call him George”

“That’s a real coincidence,” remarked the Scot. “My son was born on St Andrew’s Day, so we decided to call him Andrew.”

“That’s incredible, what a coincidence, “said the Irishman. “Exactly the same thing happened with my son Pancake.”


Live big & love deep.
