Wrestling is not about beating your opponent.
It is about beating you.
It is about continually pushing yourself to new heights.
To never be content with what you have done in the past.
To always strive to improve yourself, regardless of the outcome.
Every match has a purpose.
Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.
It’s not the wins that are most valuable.
Each outcome will provide valuable lessons and experience, which will be needed to achieve ultimate success.
A win will build confidence.
And a loss will produce desire.
It is that desire that makes champions.
In every loss, there is a lesson that you need to learn.
And, one by one, when you learn the lessons they will all come together not only to make you a champion,
But more importantly,
They will make you a man.
