You have to give it your all,
But it can never have all of you or be all you are.
Undoubtably, in your quest to become your best you may need to borrow from other areas of your life.
Sometimes on onerous terms,
Thus becoming unbalanced and overweighted in pursuit of your goal.
Make sure this is only temporary.
Elite wrestlers have great balance.
Sometimes, except in their lives.
Remember to repay in full the other areas of your life you have borrowed from in order to become great.
Wrestling, like life is not only about the body,
it is also about the mind and spirit and other people.
Wrestling, like life is not only about you,
It is about the people who have sacrificed for you and the people who have sacrificed with you.
It is about the family who has supported you and the coaches who have invested their belief and experience in you.
With so many people doing so much to help you succeed remember to acknowledge their efforts and to pay their kindness forward in other areas of your life
Remember to always be in balance.
