Respect the Sport and the Sport Will Respect You

Knowledge will give you power,

But character respect.

Bruce Lee

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines respect as, “A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

If you as a wrestler do the work necessary to become successful, whether success is reached, or not, people involved in this sport will notice.

If you as a wrestler develop the qualities that are necessary to go to battle against adversity and your integrity in times of turmoil remains true, people involved in this sport will honor you.

If you are one of the lucky ones that achieve great things in this sport, the people in this sport will applaud you.

Understand, achieving great things is measured by the distance from where you started to where you finished.

It is not measured by standing at the highest point on a podium for a few seconds.

Some of the greatest achievements in the sport of wrestling occur by those whose measured distance is unknown by others.

In those situations, you will earn the highest form of respect.

Your own.
