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 to make you a man.
The reward that you seek, may not be the reward that you receive...
Twenty-six years ago, JohnA's goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
He committed himself to a lifestyle, made the sacrifices, put in the time, starved himself and even shaved his head; he had the hunger, the desire and the determination.
But he came up short.
For many years, after JohnA graduated it seemed like he got nothing out of his six years of total dedication to the sport.
That the trade off of what he gave and what he got in return to the sport of wrestling was way out of whack.
To put every ounce of ones soul into achieving something and to get nothing out of it in return was beyond his comprehension and he just could not justify it in his head.
He hated wrestling for it.
Until he had adversity in his life.
And slowly but surely, JohnA started to realize how much the sport of wrestling actually gave back to him.
Much more than he ever knew.
When life throws you to your back, you need to know how not to get pinned, to get off of your back and pick yourself up in order to win.
The sport of wrestling provided JohnA with a much greater reward than the one that he sought - To stand on a podium for a few seconds - It provided him with a way to live life.
A belief system that he would use to help him win his ultimate battle in his life when his teenage daughter Jessica lands in a medically induced coma.
"6 Minutes Wrestling With Life" is a riveting, emotional story of one wrestling families refusal to give up, to be able to endure physical and emotional pain and keep moving forward to achieve their ultimate goal:
To care for and cure their daughter Jessica, and to live and love life.
One, without the other was just unacceptable.
A champion is not someone who won his last match of the season, a champion is the person who gives his all in attempting to do so.
