It just took me 26 years to figure out why.
In high school, my mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
I committed myself to a lifestyle. I made the sacrifices; I put in the time.
I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.
For many years, after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport. I felt the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.
I hated wrestling for it.
I just could not comprehend or justify putting every ounce of your soul into trying to achieve something and getting nothing in return.
Until I had adversity in my life.
And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling actually has given back to me. Much more than I ever knew.
Dan Gable famously said, "Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easier."
I would take it one step further and say, "Because I've wrestled, almost all things in life are possible."
"6 Minutes Wrestling with Life" is much more than a wrestling book.
It is an inspirational book on life, love, loss and belief.
You will never look at life the same way again.
Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think.
