Can you become a professional football player? 100 days to a pro contract

Whether people doubt you whether people Think you’re crazy. It doesn’t matter what matters most is that you follow your heart And you follow your dream and see where that takes you so my name is Nick Humphries. I’m 24 years old I’m from Canberra Australia the creator of the hundred-day a challenge I left Australia quit my job left all my family and friends behind I decided to chase my dream of becoming a professional footballer in 100 days today guys and girls I’m speaking to a guy who did what a lot of you guys can only dream about you put everything on the line To try and become a pro in a hundred days Nick from train effective get in here And we’re talking to see you get out you welcome to the Danish cold now. We’re gonna Talk a bit about your move in order to try to become a pro in a hundred days. Let’s do it But where did you play your football football for me will always just something like fun You know just for fun with friends on the school grounds And it wasn’t until I was 16 years old where I started taking it really seriously So I read this self-help book once and I stumbled on things like the 10,000 hour rule It’s 10,000 hours of deliberate practice will make you world class in any field I took this rule to heart started training 20 hours a week and I’ve went from basically a local amateur school player to training with the Australian national team getting scholarship offers to the u.s. Training with lots of professional teams, so I’ve been on this long long journey And it accumulated with 100 day challenge The first 50 days was preparation the last 50 days with execution so those 50 first days did everything to prepare running fitness One two three sessions a day just doing everything I could so the end of 40-50 days I would have the same fitness technique physicalities as a pro would or should have The next 50 days, the last 50 days was about the execution It was finding trials, open trials, opportunities using everything from Linkedin to google searches to find tryouts agents Everything I could what the real first step is what what people don’t do is this actually take the step of deciding I’m gonna do it I’m gonna do it nuts the first step me deciding that I was gonna go and do this hundred a challenge I said I don’t want to be a hundred years old on my my deathbed Thinking about the things that I didn’t do and that’s what I wanted to be all about just Going all-in into something and going with all your heart all your might and seeing where that takes I think all of us have dreams and every single well every single one of us have dreams It’s just we don’t make the decision to go do it and that’s what I wanted 100 day challenge To be about What was your goal of what do you kind of want to push this to? One minute of professional football okay anywhere in the world didn’t matter I think what too many players do is complicate things and say I want to play in the Premier League Or I want to play in a World Cup problem those things are pretty daunting when you think about all the Steps it takes it to get there and all the time it takes And how few people actually get there To go and play there go do you. Go follow your heart, go follow your dreams and see where that takes you the biggest risk Is not doing it. The best Experience was waking up every day with the mission And it gives you a tremendous amount of energy the second thing I’d say is just comments And not the negative comments, but the comments of people that said hey Nick I watched 100 a challenge and I made someone so team and just messages like that messages of encouragement and support and knowing that I could inspire some people That’s that’s an amazing feeling okay, so you might not have made it in a hundred days But you’re still you’re still chasing your dream. Aren’t you yeah? it’s not over and I’m trying to think about what the next step is from now just because While in that hundred days I saw things so things in football that I don’t like that the politics this live ego There’s a lot of Kind of corruption a lot of people taking money from from people’s pockets in the most negative sense Becoming a pro isn’t just like hard work hard work hard work. It also takes money to start earning Yeah, money when you go all into something you gotta go in not just emotionally not just physically but sometimes financially as well and Here’s the thing about following your heart. I followed my heart that way, and it just it just I saw more of the Kind of negative parts of football which I really didn’t like so with something like train effective. I’m really trying to Bring something new and different now and even set up something which will give players Second chances or a platform to really display their skills in the most positive genuine way so this whole experience with the hundred day challenge Drove you into Creating train effective to help other people in achieving their dreams. Yep. Tell us move on so me growing up in Australia I would play with a decent team Maybe I train twice a week with a volunteer coach or something like that, but I always think to myself You know how can I train like a professional? What did? Was doing and that led me to create trained effective where you can basically train like a professional time anywhere workouts drills Tactical analysis videos everything you basically get in a professional academy environment online I still see myself as a player that can still go far even on my age. I still believe that I shouldn’t give up And that’s what my heart says, so we’ll see okay guys so the key takeaway here Is that no Nick might not have made it as a pro in a hundred days But that’s not a reason to quit you should never give up you should keep working hard be Persistence have patience and who knows you might pay off in the end follow your heart.

  4. I really want to become a Profesional Football player and I wanna play for Mexico Women’s National football team but the thing is that I get judged so much because one day I was at my soccer game and i heard this lady say “wow she is a walking stick” I stared crying and looked at my arms because my arms are the only thing that are skinny. I eat so much and I don’t get fat. Then I was at soccer practice one of my teammates hates me and she told me that I was hesitating and we were playing a game and another one of my teammates the one that people say she is so good got mad at me and told me I sucked just because I didn’t shoot a goal or past it to her then my enemy told me that I suck at soccer and that I would never make it to be a professional soccer player but I don’t listen to them but the thing that really bothers me is how skinny my arms are I hate it that’s why I eat a lot and I won’t get fat?⚽️and also my coach always puts me on defense and I really want to be forward so I can get better at soccer well I hope you guys Follow your dreams don’t listen to those people who say you can’t make it cause you will no matter what just be patient your day will come?

  5. I started taking football seriously less than one year ago but I lack some of the essentials of football and I am almost 24. Do you think I can learn football and go professional? ?

  6. I need the truth guys? I am 17 and i practice 2 hours a day all week I just take 1 day or somethings 2 of break. I love soccer and I want to be someone great do you think i can make it at a professional level? Honest opinions?

  7. I'm 18-19 years of age and have played only school level in India can I become pro player? Plz tell unisport and if yes then how?

  8. My friend plays for the Indian national team. He has wonderful physique but his skills are not the best I have seen with my own eyes. There were a lot of more talented players than him in the academy itself. Sometimes you need luck and for the future, I guess people with better physique might have wayy better chances.

  11. Whether people doubt you, whether people assume as you crazy whether people claim you, that you're bad, it doesn't matter what the people think about. The only thing that does matters that is your passion!!!

  15. thats what i have been looking for since i was 9?someone to motivate me lol , im almost 17 now i have no good speed or skills, but my passion pushes me to start from the bottom in few dayz

  16. I'm 13, almost 14, only played with a local club almost two years ago for a few months before I quit from being so embarrased about being the worst player there and never getting the ball. People say I'm really good (even strangers said it before) but I don't see how. My ball control is awful, in 1v1s I always focus on doing a specific, useless move and I don't ever win the 1v1. Otherwise I have never played soccer in my life but I wouldn't say I'm as bad as a complete beginner that still kicks the ball with their toe and doesn't know how to do a stepover. When I practice by myself, I can do a rainbow flick, I can complete some basic cone drills, and I can shoot with a lot of power and my accuracy isn't that bad, but I still have huge problems with confidence. Could I still play on varsity in my freshman year or even turn pro if I practice AT LEAST 20 hours a week? Would people be able to tell I haven't been playing from a young age even years later?

    Btw, I decided to try out for a club again this past summer after quitting my previous club almost a year ago. Three days before the tryout, I sprained an ankle and couldn't go. So now I can't play club football for another year, until summer 2020, and that's the summer before high school (we play soccer in the spring there, spring 2021). All the soccer camps in my area are only for a few days and they're expensive and very rare. I also can't join any pick up soccer games because they simply don't exist near me, as far as I know, or they're all adults-only. What do I do? I will have no experience in real match situations.


  18. I wish to be a football player but all of my friends and family said that I am not good enough and there is no team that would take me i train by myself and I wish to be a famous footballer in the future but I think that is not going to happen ?
