Never despise small beginnings: These pictures of Thomas Partey will inspire you to do more

Ghana's midfield maestro went international some years ago due to the talent he had and how good he had polished that talent. How skilled he is and how he retains the ball on his feet for long has really invited people from near and far looking forward to see him play the beautiful game of football.

Thomas Partey is the man I am talking about, he is the man lifting the image of Ghana beyond its borders with his talent. Thomas is a central defensive midfielder who has been the dream of many coaches lacking a pivotal man right in front of their defenders. Such a position is very important in every setting since most offensive and defensive plays have to pass through them.

He intercepts, tackles, wins duels, dribbles and most importantly, shares very pleasing long passes. The talent he polished saw him move from the life he lived in Ghana and took him to one of the most prestigious football clubs in the world.

He headed to the capital of Spain to play for the wizard, Diego Simeone's Athletico Madrid and did many exploits with that team. That was just not enough, I think. He had to leave his comfort zone and travel to find a new challenge.

This landed him in the Queen's land. He settled for a London club in Arsenal which many people thought was a mistake but that never bothered him. He only wanted a new challenge and not another comfort zone.

I got to come across some old pictures of this midfield maestro. These pictures are capable of motivating you to push harder in life and not stay where you are. The sky is the limit, you are just on the ground. Never give up and chase your dreams because everything is possible. Below are the pictures I found;

Looking at his current state, you will be glad to know he never quit. Giving up on his dreams wouldn't have taken him this far. It is up to us to also keep on believing, everything is possible.
