A riveting, emotional story of one wrestling family's refusal to give up, to be able to endure tremendous emotional pain, and to keep moving forward toward achieving their ultimate goal: to care for and to cure their daughter Jessica, who as a normal 18-year-old college student, has suddenly been placed in a medically induced coma, and to continue to live and love life. Without dying inside. One, without the other was just unacceptable. JohnA must fight to keep living in order to keep his daughter from dying.
"What an inspiration for parents"
We have all seen the contest where a person is in a bank vault and has 360 seconds to grab as much money as possible. If it were you, would you stop grabbing money after you had "just enough" in your hands? Would you stop grabbing money when there were only 60 seconds left? Would you ever be too tired to keep grabbing more money? Obviously not. Why? Because the reward of what that money can do for you overrides any of the reasons to stop. A wrestling match is the same type of contest. You need to have the same kind of mindset.
Choosing to create advantaged positions and avoid disadvantaged positions is the most underutilized strategic asset in wrestling. The wrestler who wrestles in his highest advantage position, for the longest time in the match, will have the greater probability of winning. That is the reason why two wrestlers wrestle multiple times with drastically different outcomes, and why the logic doesn't hold that if one wrestler beat another he should be able to beat the wrestler his prior opponent beat.
Again is John A. Passaro's sequel to 6 Minutes Wrestling With Life. The fight inside of you must be dictated by the outcome you want to achieve. You must fight for the whole six minutes. Every second counts. Everything matters. Every breath is gold.
I believe every experience we go through in life is to prepare us for what's to come in our lives - to teach us the life lessons we need to know so we can be best prepared to handle our ultimate test, somewhere in the future. I believe our lives are an accumulation of life lessons that can only be learned by personal experience, to be completely understood.
