There is a reason why Cristiano Ronaldo is regarded as one of the greats in the world of football, if not the greatest, and this 34-year-old doesn't show any signs of stopping his godly form anytime soon, despite what many of his critics would have wanted. Many regard the Portuguese superstar for having the fittest physic in the game. However, there is one element that is as important as his physical power that is his – solid mental strength. The former Real Madrid forward knows that improving his mentality on the pitch is somewhat the biggest key to his long-lasting successful journey...
Cristiano Ronaldo - A competitive animal
Everything starts in your mindset
The star striker has proved to the world that if odds are against his favour, his winning mentality is what thrives him to fight against the critics and rise to the occasion. And you can bet on Ronaldo answering his critics again on the pitch next season by joining GClub Mobile and look for the best odds.
Ronaldo has provided the football world with many magical nights to remember that not just shows his physicality in the game but the amount in which his mentality strikes in that wins matches.
Let's all refresh the recent times when he demolished the opposition team despite odds being against him.
Taking charge with the national coach Fernando Santos during the EURO 2016 against favourites France to motivate his boys to win the final which he did, scoring an amazing hat-trick against Spain in the Russia FIFA World Cup last year and another world-class comeback from Juve's Ronaldo against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
Of course, the night in Moscow with Manchester United against Chelsea and the back-to-back winner of the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid. There is a reason why he's known as Mr. Champions League.
This shows his winning mentality, how his strength motivates to become better each day in order to become the best. He has no god-gifted talent but his desire and hunger to train is what helps him improve as a football and as a person as well.
It is his mentality that pushes him to hard-work and stay dedicated to his targets which are the ingredients that makes him special.
Surrounded by family and friends
The superstar believes when he was young and left his family to play for Manchester United in England is the moment his mental strength started to develop and became his biggest weapon to improve as a footballer and as a person.
Scoring tons of goals and being the center of attention all the time must be difficult to handle at times and this leads towards having a busy schedule for the Portuguese superstar. However, the positive vibes and humility is gained with the time spent with his family and friends who have been loyal to him.
That helps him be connected to those who have had his back even before his incredible success and this is what Ronaldo believes is the most important aspect in life.
The 5-time Ballon d'Or winner makes sure to participate in his family to have an atmosphere of love and unity which encourages him to have a mind that is putting him at peace and having the ability to focus on life on and off the field.
The manner in which Ronaldo has improved his mentality in football, is something that drifts him apart from the rest of the players.
