A Sad Day for English Football

Steven Gerrard has recently announced his international retirement after making 114 appearances in a career spanning 14 years.

The 34-year-old, who captained England during the disappointing 2014 World Cup campaign, said he had "agonised” over the decision since returning from Brazil.

Gerrard made his debut in 2000 in a 2-0 win over Ukraine at Wembley and went on to play in six major tournaments, scoring 21 times. He captained the side 38 times and is the third most-capped England player behind Peter Shilton and David Beckham.

By so many, Stevie G was seen as an incredible man and a fantastic footballer who we have all been blessed to see in an England shirt so often. It is never by coincidence that people reach such a staggering figure as 114 caps, it is a mark of his wonderful talent allied to a huge drive and determination to live up to the highest standard.

The reason why I am writing about Steven Gerrard is the fact that he was a key figure in English football, who was very passionate about his job and determined to succeed as a great footballer; he has taught me, and many others, about the importance of determination in your career.

If you have a determined attitude and do not give up easily in the face of any obstacles or barriers in your work environment, this can spell success for you in the workplace. If you are stay persistent and keep on trying, believing in yourself, you can find the solution to the problem or situation.

In contrast, an individual with a negative attitude will not exhibit a positive determined attitude and give up easily; if you do not believe you will find the solution, you wont.
