#26: There’s Always Someone Better
Some athletes think they are the best, and perhaps thinking that you’re the best helps you become the best. When it comes to competitive sports, you have to have self-confidence and believe in yourself in order to succeed and trump other people. It’s part of the game.
This person joined in this thread to say that in wrestling, you can never actually be the best. There’s always someone tougher and better, and so a lot of people get put in place in that sport. He didn’t share a specific story, but I guess there were too many to choose from. In this sport, and probably any sport, people are constantly hit in the face with a dose of reality.
