Pele was a complete player, possessing both technical and athletic skills, intelligence, speed, precise passing, and the sense for goals. On the field, he was able to perform technical moves with great ease. He was an achiever and also an innovator, perfecting stunts such as the bicycle kick. Pele is the greatest player of all time because of his impact on football. From his professional debut at 16 to his retirement, he has eclipsed all other players of his era. We can say that during his career, there was Pele and only Pele.

Six times he finished a game with five goals, 30 times with four goals, and 92 times with three goals. His most memorable goal was his 1000th, scored in Maracana Stadium through a penalty kick. It created an indescribable uproar, even fans of the opposing team joined in cheering the Brazilian football legend.

Building your house

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go & asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career. When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, "This is your house... my gift to you."

The carpenter was shocked!

What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently. But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, "Life is a do-it-yourself project." Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the "house" you will live in tomorrow. Therefore, Build wisely!
