The path to becoming a champion is paved by great sacrifices.
They say it takes hours and hours of practice to become proficient. Many researchers suggest that it takes 10,000 hours. If you have never heard of the 10,000 Rule, check out the video below with Malcolm Gladwell.

In order to accomplish this, I thought that there would be no better starting point than to ask the greatest athletes on the planet about their perspective on sacrifice.
