I think self-belief is a massive thing in football. If you don't believe in yourself, not many others will. Work hard and believe in yourself, and I think you'll go as far as your body will take you.
It depends on how my football career goes, but when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker. Even if I got to play just one game, it is something I would like to do.
I will always try to be as normal as I can. Obviously, there may have to be some limits with it, but I am still a fan at heart and want to live like a normal person.
I went to see England against Switzerland at Wembley with my dad and brother, too. That was in 2008, Fabio Capello's first game in charge. Jermaine Jenas scored, and we won 2-1. I remember the national anthem was incredible. I sang it with pride - always do.
When I was growing up, Keane and Sheringham were my idols, and they wore 10. So it was always my dream to wear it.
I remember the European Championships in 2004. Wayne Rooney was a special player in that tournament, and I definitely cried when we got knocked out then.
Maybe when I was younger, people didn't always believe in me; they didn't think I would make it to where I am now.
When times are down, keep believing, keep working hard, and things will pick up.
In a game, you never know what chance you're going to get, so I try and cover all bases and make sure I'm ready for that chance when it comes.
I always back myself as a finisher, but I always practise it as well. Every type of finish: left foot, right foot, headers, penalties, free kicks.
Obviously, everyone's different, but I love just settling down and having a barbecue with my friends at the house.
I am quite a calm player. I do have a go at players and refs in the heat of the moment, but I never throw my toys out of the pram.
The manager and the fitness staff condition every training session. They plan it out week by week on what players need. If players need a rest, they will do that; if players need to work hard, they will do that as well.
I am happy at Tottenham. I go into work every day with a smile on my face, and that is important.
There's no point playing up front just because you want to be the one who scores the goals. Make sure you have a knack for it.
You have to choose whether to take the money or follow your own ambitions, playing in the best league in the world and winning titles.
I watched all the games in the pub with my family. We used to go to a place called The Sirloin in Chingford. It was quite a good atmosphere in there.
It isn't hard to practise finishing. You can do it on your own: just take a couple of touches and shoot at goal. You can do it with whatever equipment you have.
I've been to Wembley a couple of times to see England, but the match which stands out for me is the 2008 Carling Cup final against Chelsea. I was there as a fan with the family. That was a great day out.
Obviously, I am hoping to go on and win many trophies for Spurs and for England. That's always been the aim since I was a kid, dreaming of lifting the trophy one day for them, so that's what I've got to do.
Personally, I love training, and getting paid to play football is incredible. Playing the game and working hard is what I have always dreamed of doing.
I want to be a player that does everything he can to reach his ability, and I'll do that.
I want to go and get more goals, create my chances for the team, and do my best for Tottenham Hotspur.
It is about doing everything you can so your body can perform at the highest level.
You can run in behind someone - one v. one, you're better - so I'm always trying to work on my speed. That's probably one aspect I've worked on the hardest as a player. I want to always improve on everything in my game, but that's one area I really work on.
I have a lot of self-belief, and I think it will happen. I think I will just get better and better. It's what great players do; they don't let up on anything. And I wouldn't do that anyway.
All I can do is my best for the team, whether that's from the bench or if I start.
I was a fan once, and I remember what it was like approaching footballers for their autographs. I used to get starstruck a lot of the time.
It's the worst feeling in the world - losing, and losing in a final on the big stage is even worse.
Anything I can do that will help me and the team, I'm happy to do it.
It is a great boost for confidence in a squad when there is not just one or two players scoring goals, but the whole team is contributing.
I take it season by season. I don't like looking too far ahead, because you never know what can happen.
Vincent Janssen has come in and done very well. He's a great player and different type of player to me.
I'm at my most comfortable out on the pitch when I'm in front of goal with the ball at my feet. It's about being used to certain situations, and with time, you will find, chances don't get snatched at.
I've always wanted to be a footballer, and I've always believed that's the path I was going to go down.
I think sometimes managers like to buy players because they're more experienced from abroad or when they've got players under their nose that will give everything to the club they've been brought up with.
The double sessions are tough. The manager wants us to get fit, wants us to work hard. And that's because the Premier League is so tough. We need it. Something we have to do.
It is down to the manager what he wants to do in the transfer window. Us as players, we just have to focus on each game that comes along and try and do our best.
I remember washing Robbie Keane's boots and asking him a few questions. It's stuff you remember as a kid. You take that on and make sure you're a bit more hungry to go on and do what they've achieved.
My biggest weakness is steak. I have to be careful not to eat too much of it these days - but I do love it done medium rare, with peppercorn sauce.
All goalscorers go on droughts. It is how you cope with that. And it is not just about scoring, it is about what you bring to the team, bringing others into play and getting assists.
I don't want to do all weights. I want to get strong using my core and my natural power.
It's harder to be angry at home when we lose. When it was just me and the missus, she didn't mind. She'd take the wrath of the loss! But it's harder when there's a little baby now.
Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club.
