Many great sports people who have the potential to be world champions decide not to become professional athletes. Some of them don’t want to travel. They fear that if they travel, it will take them far away from their families for too long. Others realize that their chosen sports can be physically dangerous and that they can easily experience a serious injury.
On the other hand, many talented people do decide to become professional athletes, and some end up making a great deal of money. Some people think that fame and money will make them happy, but this is not always the case. Sometimes they are famous for only a short period of time. May also find that it is annoying being followed everywhere by reporters and fans. While the money, the fame, and the excitement can be great, the lack of a private life is not.
