Many wrestlers talk of being great and accomplishing the ultimate goals (District, Regions, States titles) but so few commit to it and stick to it. Im hoping this little blog entry can motivate some of you to stay the path that got you here and will get you to the promise land.
When I think of factors that hinder results two words come to mind. Sacrifice and Dedication. There are many others that apply but these two seem to be the hardest for today’s cycle of wrestler. Sacrifice because you have to be willing to give up most of what is your daily norm and be happy to do so knowing these sacrifices will be paying dividends in the long wrestling season. Bluntly, continue doing the things that you’ve been doing: club wrestling, strength & conditioning training or mindset training, whatever. The other constant factor is Dedication because its this willing commitment to doing more that gets you to club or performance training after that long school practice. Ultimately building the unbreakable armor of confidence that will be battle tested.
I can talk from my competition and coaching experience that its not easy to be a wrestler at any level, in high school and college it gets real challenging balancing it all but its always what made me a different athlete and I was proud of that. Given there are no guarantees in this game but there is something to be said for applying all you efforts into a goal that is in reach and attainable. The question is can you do enough preparation to be ready for your moment to shine?
At Elite Wrestling NJ we breed a mentality of relentless attack knowing that we prepare like no other. From youth wrestlers to High School wrestlers and onto college and mma fighters we have proven our system works on all levels. True, the Elite Wrestling System may not be for all, especially the weak hearted but I assure you, for those that can push past the initial pain and grow to potentials others cant cause they aren’t willing is what separates first from second and Elite Wrestling from the other clubs.
What place did you want to finish at?
