When you take away worldly noise ones soul is audible.
The good news, and yes there is good news, is your life can change for the better.
Feel blessed when faced with difficulty.
As difficulty is the sculptor of men.
It became my dream as a little boy to wear that singlet and when it became true it was the proudest moment of my life.
You set out to achieve greatness, and you have come up short.
You met your match.
You now realize that you gave it your all, and your all just wasn’t enough.
And it hurts.
It hurts badly.
That there really is a universal plan, a plan that goes unnoticed but for a few seconds, twice a year.
So often, nowadays you see guys who are afraid to face the same wrestler multiple times for fear that the other wrestler might “figure them out.” Shame on them if they can be “figured out” so easily.
I was once told that the type of wrestler I was would be the kind of man I will be.
There are so many young athletes whose stories would break your heart.
I don’t want my heart to break, I want to help mend theirs.
The world looks magnificent through the lens of gratitude and pride.
