A journalist once asked Cristiano Ronaldo:
“Why does your mother still live with you?
Why don’t you build her a house?”
“My mother raised me and she dedicated her life for me.
She would go to sleep hungry, just to let me eat. We had no money at all.
She worked as a maid 7 days and 7 nights a week to buy my first shoes so I could be a player.
All my success is dedicated to her and because of her. As long as she has a life,
she will always be by my side, she has everything I can give.
She is my refuge and my greatest gift.”
My thoughts – I am so inspired by Ronaldo’s thinking.
I am equally inspired by his mom. What a rockstar she is.
Working days and nights for him to have a shoe and become a player !!!’ Wow !!!
Every time I remember this anecdote, my eyes overflow.
Insight – Behind every success, there are many stories of unbelievable sacrifices.
Often, these sacrifices are forgotten. (But not by people like Ronaldo).
Decision – I wish I can be this kind of a parent.
