You stand a better chance at winning at wrestling if you have the right frame of mind. You must feel like you can win, you must want to win and many other mental things involved in wrestling. You have to think about your conditioning and are you in good enough shape to wrestle 6 hard minutes. This read helps a person whether they are a wrestler or not. If you are a wrestler this kindle will help you to do everything right. I liked this story very much.
If a life could be read backwards, we would all see why we have gone through some of things we have, gaining skills that will be needed later, and John Passaro gives us a perfect example of this. His drive, ambition and unwillingness to give up showed up early in his life, and John used that drive to wrestle. While his hard work and dedication didn't morph into a stellar wrestling career, the skills he learned pursuing his dream did lead him to something he cherished more, saving his daughter.
I'm not giving anything away to say that John's teenage daughter slipped into a coma, this happens in the first chapter of his story. What gets John through the toughest time of his life, is the skills he'd learned through a sport he didn't excel at. Instead of lapsing into bitterness over what he perceived as a lot of wasted effort, John got on with his life and coached his two sons in wrestling, both of whom did excel.
Sure bad things happen to people, but it's what they do about misfortune that intrigues us. What happened to John is the worst thing imaginable, and had he not been the kind of person who had the grit to continue on, not only his life would have fallen apart, but the lives of his family and others close to him.
This is the kind of book you want to give to others who've, as John puts it, joined the 'club'. Anyone who's in the club knows exactly what he's talking about. If you, or someone you know has suffered an unthinkable loss, crawled your way out of a forest of grief to join again, the land of the living, then you're in the club.
You might think it's a downer to read about all the bad things that can happen to a person, but reading John's story has the opposite effect. His story makes you glad to be human and sharing the same spirit with other humans knowing how grand we can be in face of adversity.
John starts off each chapter with the words of famous people we've all admired over the years to show the human spirit at its finest. I particularly love the John F. Kennedy speech where JFK tells us that we're going to the moon just to show what we Americans are made of. If there's a politician out there today who can come close to being that inspiring, I haven't heard from him/her.
What we need today is heroes, and we know who they are by what they've overcome. John Passaro is now one of mine.
Every parent should get this book. It is a quick read but be sure to block out 3 hours or so because you won't be able to stop.
