It is not our abilities
That show who we truly are,
It is our choices.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
No job interviewer ever asked a potential hire,
“How is your single leg?” in a job interview.
Even though many employers seek to hire former wrestlers.
That is because the qualities the sport of wrestling teaches, hard work, commitment, dedication, perseverance, overcoming adversity, are much more important than the actual techniques one acquires from the sport.
The application off the mat is much more valuable than the one on the mat.
Use the sport of wrestling to acquire the qualities needed to improve the quality of life of those around you, including your own.
Allow the sport, through its peaks and valleys, trials and tribulations, through its disappointment and its glory, chisel you into the best version of yourself on the mat.
Then choose to apply the qualities you learned while seeking greatness on the mat to your life off the mat.
That is the true purpose of this sport.
That is what this great sport is all about.
To acquire a lifestyle that will transform you into the best version of yourself in life.
Become the Best Version of Yourself
