Chase the (Monday) blues away with these inspiring words from Brazil’s hottest footballer Neymar.

As the world’s most expensive football player, Neymar shouldn’t have the blues (Mondays or otherwise).

The 1.75m Brazilian, who plies his trade at Paris St-Germain (PSG), has had an unshakeable air of confidence since his early days at Santos.

The PSG number 10, known for his electric dribbling and explosive finishes, is usually deployed on the left-hand side as a striker, winger or attacking midfielder.

The 25-year-old two-time South American Footballer of the Year, with fifteen goals in eighteen games this season, also more than held his own as a part of Barcelona’s famous MSN (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) attacking trio –winning three La Liga titles , three Copa del Rey, a FIFA Club World Cup and Champions League title.

Off the pitch, the Nike sponsored footballing superstar is equally successful – inking deals with Beats, Volkswagen and Unilever just to name a few.

Neymar has had an on-and-off relationship with actress and model Bruna Marquezine since 2013. He has a son, Davi Lucca and is very close to his family. The footballing family man even has a tattoo of his sister Rafaella Beckran on his arm!

The perfect antidote every time that you feel like a flawed person.

Even at the tender age of 25, Neymar realises that your biggest competition is yourself and no one else.

Priceless advice that is applicable on and off the pitch. If only his strike partner Fred had heeded his advice during the 2014 World Cup…

We are no celebrity like the Brazilian, but we are also constantly bombarded by others and their opinions. In the end, Neymar tells you whose opinion matters the most.

And there is no better person to ask than the boy who made his footballing dreams come true…

Clearly, Neymar is a big fan of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.

For the times that you get social media envy…

It would seem that the €222 million man has a cheeky sense of humour too.

Be the original, not a copy, said the one and only Neymar.

Clearly, confidence and cockiness are one and the same to Neymar.

Even the 2011 FIFA Puskas Award winner knows the importance of not being fake…

That’s right, ‘cause what’s money after all without people to share it with.

The father-of-one might not care what others say, but he clearly cares for his loved ones.

Even Neymar knows that you cannot make it on your own in life!

It is important to grow up, but not to suck the fun out of life.

The Olympic gold medallist knows that whatever we do in life echoes on in eternity.

The former Barcelona man proving that there is life beyond football.

The REAL secret to Neymar’s success in life.

WORD, because who would not want to be a footballing megastar?
