    The Truth of my Life & Football Career: Jimmy Glass

    The Truth of my Life & Football Career: Jimmy Glass

    Today, we're diving deep into a story that's etched in football legend, a tale of determination, resilience, and an iconic moment that transcends the sport itself. We're talking to none other than Jimmy Glass, the goalkeeper whose last-minute goal for Carlisle United back in 1999 kept the club in the Football League, securing his place in football folklore.

    But Jimmy's story is far more than just that one goal. It's a narrative of highs and lows, of a career that's seen its fair share of unexpected twists. From the heights of that unforgettable match to the challenges of life after professional football, including driving a taxi and the introspective journey that led him to find fulfilment beyond the pitch.

    In this candid conversation, Jimmy opens up about the moments that have shaped his life and career. From the brandy that calmed his nerves before the game that would define his career, to the mixed emotions towards the legendary goal, and the realisation that, in many ways, he didn't fulfil the potential he saw for himself in football. Jimmy discusses the impact of that goal not just on his career but on his life, describing it as "much more than me, my journey and my life."

    He also shares insights into the aftermath of that surreal moment, the struggles of balancing life and mindset after football, working with AFC Bournemouth, and the importance of managing emotions. Jimmy's story is a powerful reminder of the resilience needed both on and off the field, the ability to adapt, and the never-ending quest to entertain and inspire.

Excellent episode Roman Chiporukha Alex Chisnall 🎙 👏 💡 🌎 👨‍🚀

Did you know that "40- 50% of the things that we take for granted and use on a daily basis comes from space or as a direct result of space"??

I didn't...

I just learnt this and here I am "glued to my phone.. commenting (not negatively 😉 ) on billionaires trying to do something positive"

So many take aways from this episode, but this:

"Beautiful blue planet with pervasive sense of interconnectedness"
"Interconnectedness & empathy"
"Just be a good and kind human being"
❤️ 🙌 ❤️

Excellent episode Roman Chiporukha Alex Chisnall 🎙 👏 💡 🌎 👨‍🚀

"WE EMPOWER YOUNG WOMEN TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GROWING SPACE ECONOMY" 💜 - Space Prize is a wonderful initiative so make sure to check it out everyone!
And of course, listen to this out of this world (literally 😉 ) episode 👩‍🚀
