Can you think of something that you've had to let go or sacrifice in your life?
I think most people have numerous sacrifices just to succeed and go forward.
Jobs, friends, friendships, living situations. Yeah, a million things.
Old toys that I do not use, I give it to the poor kids.
I'm very sad but it's the right thing to do.
Pursuing my basketball career as serious as I did, knowing that I just kept getting injured and it wasn't gonna work.
I got cancer when I was a young adult, and I had to move back home, and I had to press pause on career, and on life, and on friends.
I think in reflection, that year was a very meaningful year in my life.
I had to work in a job that I wasn't necessarily thrilled about, but I knew that that was gonna get me to where I wanted to be.
Squeezing pennies, making budgets, and it's - you know, it's actually making me a better person, and proving to me that money isn't everything.
I think the most successful people that I know even when they're achieving goals, they're always looking to the next thing.
I had to give up my own company that I started and that I was building, and I know if I had stayed on my own,
then I wouldn't have been able to accomplish the amazing things that our team has accomplished.
I think anytime you're in a relationship, you're making a series of concessions.
When I had my second child, I had to take an early retirement.
I really liked my job, but I felt like my family was more important.
I think marriage is a sacrifice.
I had to become selfless.
The biggest things that I've had to let go of to move forward were, you know, people.
Giving up the person who I thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life with.
Coming to terms with the loss of a best friend, a grandparent, a loved one.
I did lose my dad to cancer when I was 25, and oh god...
Being away and starting a life away from my family is like, that just doesn't even make any sense in my mind sometimes.
I think about that a lot, as my parents get older, that I'm far away,
and maybe one day, I may have to not be as selfish and I might have to move home and help out.
Later on, you realize, well, you know what, what were you really sacrificing?
Like, you weren't. Like, you're still here. You still have the rest of your life ahead of you.
My dad always taught me that always to put other people before yourself, and always to remove your ego from certain situations.
It's not easy to let go of it, but you start one day at a time, and it can help you actually achieve your own personal goals so much faster.


你,犧牲了什麼? (What Have You Sacrificed?)
