Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think.
Twenty-six years ago, 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. That 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.
To put every ounce of your soul into achieving something and to get nothing out of it in return was beyond my comprehension and I just could not justify it in my head.
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.
