Now is when the wrestling season gets exciting and all the work and preparation starts to pay off. The three videos this week deal with getting yourself ready to perform at your best and doing it with enthusiasm. Enthusiasm and hard work will almost always top talent alone. You have to enjoy competing and challenging yourself if you are going to be successful. Thursday is the beginning of some exciting matches to come. Have fun, wrestle hard and do it with passion. This song and video is about hardwork, overcoming adversity, pursuing your dreams and accomplishing your goals in life.
In this video the highlights are great and you can see the excitement and enthusiasm as the Gophers compete. Pay attention to Coach Robinson as he addresses the team before the dual. Some very good points.
The final video is one of my favorite motivational speeches, applies to any sport. Enjoy and good luck Thursday!
