No matter what players say or people say, you want to be liked and appreciated, even if you've had a downfall.
If you can believe this, I didn't fight for my first world title fight till I had 58 fights, so I really appreciated what I was fighting for and for whom as well.
I still bump into Spurs fans who say: 'Why did you have to go?' I say back: 'What more could I have done?' I talk to them and I think they appreciate I had good reasons.
Take time to smell the roses. Appreciating the little things in life really can make all the difference.
Was I asleep? Had I slept?
It is never too late to be what you might have been
You are precious.
