For the longest time – I got it wrong…
I thought the ultimate achievement in wrestling was to win a State Championship…
It is not.
The ultimate achievement in wrestling is to prepare a young man for his life by having him become the best person he can be by acquiring the “Qualities of a Wrestler” while in pursuit of a state championship.
Acquiring these qualities is more important than winning a state championship.
They are what is needed to become happy and successful in life.
These qualities are acquired during the pursuit, and not in the winning. ________________
This is a 1,000 word short.
I always knew that I would write, I just had no idea how personal my first book, "6 Minutes Wrestling with Life", would be to me.
I love to inspire, to motivate and show a different approach to solving life's problems through my writing.
As a former athlete and youth coach, I believe that sports provides valuable life lessons that when learned and implemented can have a tremendous impact on a persons life.
I write with anecdotes and quotes which have had an impact on my life.
I have been a member of the secret club called the "Life Changing Events Club" since August 21st, 2009.
I have viewed life differently ever since.
I believe that everything that we do and everything that happens in our life - happens for a reason.
Sometimes that reason takes many years to come to the surface - but it will, and if you are paying attention you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.
Hopefully I have touched you through my writing and have stirred your emotions enough to live life more fully.
Everything matters.Every Breath Is Gold.
