A former grassroots footballer, one who rose from the slums and war ravaged Liberia of the 90s to become best player in the world in 2005, has just become president of Liberia.
George Opong Weah, the former Arsenal star defeated vice President Joseph Boakai in the run off presidential election recently held in that country and will now succeed current President Ellen Sirleaf.
The National Elections Commission said that with 98.1% of ballots counted, Mr Weah had won 61.5% of the vote.
Opponent Joseph Boakai was far behind with 38.5%.
For young boys in the grassroots football level, there’s a huge lesson to learn in the George Weah’s story. Here’s a man who lacked basic education, but had raw football skills. A man whose upbringing was tainted by a war that consumed many friends and family members and one which could dampen the highest of spirits and turn the most innocent of souls into a revengeful murderous monster.
But Weah had finer dreams. He wanted greatness in better ways than carrying a gun. For him, what separated him and the best football stars in the world were simply skills, mental and physical skills that he could learn. And he set apart to make the necessary sacrifices to become great.
A retired basketball player, now a World renowned psychologist John Amaechi in one of his motivational videos on YouTube urged aspiring basketball stars to be ready to pay the FEE  to greatness if they ever really desired to be great.  By the FEE, Amaechi meant Focus, Effort and Execution.
