    YOU have the potential to make ANYTHING POSSIBLE.

    When working with the England football team, we focus on what we might achieve instead of worrying about what might go wrong. I honestly believe that with the right mindset, a willingness to learn from our mistakes, and the ability to cope with the highs and lows, every one of us can make the most of our lives.

    In this book I hope I can prepare you for your own exciting journey ahead.

    BE BRAVE
    Bravery is not just the kind of heroic act that earns a medal. It's the quality we need to step out of our comfort zones and take on new challenges.

    BE KIND
    A force for good that comes from the heart, kindness changes lives. It opens up opportunities and can be our greatest strength.

    FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
    We all have a story to tell in life. It's down to us what it will be about. So, let's begin writing YOUR STORY - and make it one that truly shines.

    'It really is a great book ... lots of really nice tips for confidence, staying strong, glass-half-full mentality, what makes a good team' CHRIS MOYLES

    'I feel that the lessons you're sharing, the wisdom that you're sharing, has relevance for all of us, whether football fans or non-football fans. And that's because these are some quite core lessons for life' DR RANGAN CHATTERJEE

    'This is a fantastic book, I've told my son Noah, aged 11, you have to read this book ... I can't tell you how much I loved this book because [it talks] about confidence, and I struggled with confidence' CHRIS EVANS

    'Southgate's analytical mind is stamped across the pages of the book; his meticulousness, his love of clarity and process. He offers tips and life lessons - focus on what you can control, do not compare yourself with others, dare to try even if it means slipping up. The tone is easy, upbeat and the messages are drummed home gently, always linking to one another ... what shines through is the warmth and inclusivity of his leadership style.' THE GUARDIAN

During a playing career spanning 500 senior appearances, Gareth Southgate captained both Aston Villa and Middlesbrough to League Cup final success, whilst also leading out the latter in a major European Cup final in the last game of his career. Gareth represented England 57 times, including the heart-breaking semi-final match in Euro '96 when his missed penalty saw England lose to Germany. After his playing career, Gareth took managerial roles at Middlesbrough and the England Under 21s. In 2016, Gareth was appointed England manager of the senior men's team. In 2018 he guided the Three Lions to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia, England's most successful result at a World Cup tournament in decades. In 2018 he received an OBE and was awarded Coach of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. In 2019 he was awarded the Football Writers' Association Tribute Award. Off the pitch, as a Goodwill Ambassador for The Prince's Trust, Gareth has supported the Trust's Future Leaders programme, which helps give young people skills in leadership and teamwork. For the FA, Gareth has authored the We Only Do Positive handbook, a resource for coaches and parents of young players highlighting the importance of positive values and behaviours such as fairness, integrity, inclusion and leadership.
