Sa panayam sa kanya ni Will Dasovich ay may mga inamin si Toni G.

“I profited a lot on television so I was very grateful for that. Everything that I was able to provide for my family, [it came from my earnings on TV]. I was able to build a house for my family, I was able to travel the world because of that. So I am very, very grateful for that,” pag-amin nito.

Aminado si Toni Gonzaga na nasa estado na ito ng kanyang buhay kung saan namimili na ito ng proyekto, na hindi lang ito ‘driven’ by money.

“I’ve reached that because in my 20-plus years in the industry, I was able naman to save for myself. So I am not deciding anymore for money. If I do something, it’s not because it’s money-driven or because ‘This is what they are gonna pay you.’ It’s not about that anymore,”

“I am done feeding my ego. I fed my ego for 20-plus years in the industry. I realized that was my biggest enemy, my ego. Because the ego is the idea that you have of yourself, that you’re carrying around you and that’s not helping you,” aniya.

“The day that you wear your title — Bob Iger said this in ‘The Ride of a Lifetime,’ he’s the former president of Walt Disney — he said that the moment you wear your title is the day you lose it. Because it’s the one running your life. That’s not who you are anymore. You are not what the people call you or what the people think of you. That’s just your ego. Who you are is the inner core, the inner being, what’s in your heart, what you believe in, what you stand for, your principles in life,” pagtatapos nito.
