"I'm not trying to rub it in posting these. We don't even have these at home. I am blessed," the Irishman posted on Instagram.

"I celebrate and reward each of these good moments with more hard work and effort. And through this I receive more good moments.

"Nice things in life are motivating. They are designed to push you further. Embrace them. Use them as motivation and you will have them."
