If you find yourself justifying some behavior by,
"Everyone has price - "
Stop. It's just not true. Ronda has been disappointed (more than once) by "friends" of hers who have taken advantage of her success in various ways. Their explanation - "I needed the money."
I've often seen athletes and administrators in sports turn a blind eye to unethical behavior, even as extreme as molesting young athletes, using the argument that,
"This position, the money I make will allow me to help other athletes"
I've heard plenty of parents use the argument,
"I had to (fill in unethical behavior X here) because I needed the money for my children."
Maybe if your children are starving, that might be a valid argument but in no situation of which I've been aware was that the case.
Maria, Ronda's oldest sister, is a sports writer, and an excellent one at that. She could have written some tabloid type book and made money, but I know it would never cross her mind, and she'd be shocked if I brought it up. There's some thing more important you need to give your children than money to buy the latest designer clothes and electronic toys, and that is a model of the type of person you want them to grow up to be.
There is something more important to give athletes than money, and that is an environment free from predatory coaches and corrupt officials.
There is something more important to give yourself than money, and that is self-respect.
Yes, you can't eat self-respect, but I've gone hungry before and it didn't kill me. And, as Carly Fiorina said,
"Once you sell your soul, no one can ever buy it back for you."
