One loss made a great winner the best ever. After that, Dan Gable could tell his teams what it takes to be ready.

A beginner looks at a successful person with no idea how they got where they are.

After doing some of the work put before them, they begin to understand.

If they don’t do the work put before them, they figure success is based on good luck, and it might be.  Just remember that the harder you work, the better your luck will be.

What is work for a wrestler? 

Start with making a baseline of your ability.  How strong are you?  What is your level of conditioning?  How effective is your technique.

Let’s say you’re stronger than most of the opponents you face, you don’t get tired easily, and you can snatch a single from anywhere. 

But you still don’t win, or win as often as you think you deserve.

Most sports success is based on bigger, stronger, faster.  Football?  Basketball?  Baseball?  Steroids?  Human Growth Hormones?  The list is long and dirty.

But you’re are a wrestler.  You lift.  You run.  You cut weight.  You drill and drill and drill.  You work with a partner.  You work with a dummy.  You work with a wall.

It’s different for you when you see someone tying their shoes.  To everyone else it’s someone tying their shoes.  To you it’s an easy cradle.  Visualize it instead of slapping a cradle on the unsuspecting.
