“Vision is much more important than sight!” Isaac Lidsky is a best-selling author, entrepreneur and renowned speaker. When he was 13 years old, he was living the “Hollywood” lifestyle, with a major role in a TV sitcom, but when he was diagnosed with a rare disease of the retina, it caused him to begin to think about life in a fresh way. Over the course of the next 10 years he lost his sight, but through this process, he talks to ShaoLan about how he gained a lot more insight into how the human mind works and how to find a positive direction in his life.

The Chinese word for “true” is 真, which originally showed someone grabbing food from a container. However, in today’s language, it is used to mean ”true” or ”truth” and actually as a result, it is a popular choice for Chinese names because parents want their children to possess the characteristic of being truthful and honest.
