What i got out of your speech today:
When approaching life and wrestling the most important thing to have is the correct mindset. The thing that sets ISW apart from our competitors is our urge to put ourselves in the best possible positon. Not only in wrestling but in every single thing we do. Everything we do either helps us or hurts us; persisting to squeeze out every ounce of benefits in a situation is vital to be successful. When im in a close match the difference between my opponent and I is not who knows more moves, but how I can maintain near perfect position for 6 minutes. Leaving no room for stupid mistakes like walking into shots on an eighth grader. By maintaining excellent position it sets one up for excellent opportunities. My goal for wrestling in the next few months is to achieve perfect position 100% of the time I wrestle enabling me to create shots and scores i need to win against the best guys. Creating angles and moving guys around, passing elbows, hitting boot scoots, pounding guys on top with the breakdown you showed me to a bar, scoring in the tight matches because i created an oppurtunity to score. These are the things that i love doing and when I go through life i am constantly reminded that everything i do will affect my ability to do them. So every decision i make will be based on how much my wrestling can benifit from my choice. I believe that choosing to do the right thing all the time, no matter how small or insignificant the situation may seem, builds a mental and/or physical edge on my opponent. Thanks John for a great speech. See you at practice.

" You have had a profound and positive impact on him in ways that I can't. I am glad he is able to express his appreciation for what you have done for him in wrestling without concern about talking about his dad. This means that he knows what I do for him is out of love and not ego, and he can express himself freely - which is very healthy. It also re-assures me that all off my over-bearing and obsessive ways have not messed him up. Thank you for your insight and thoughts."
