My coauthor, Daveda Lamont, sent me the link to this youtube video depicting what she felt exemplifies many of the principles discussed in our forthcoming book Becoming a True Champion: Achieving Athletic Excellence From the Inside Out.
I wholeheartedly agree! Dustin Carter truly demonstrates an awe inspiring commitment to becoming the best he can be. The path he has chosen and, most importantly, the process he will go through to travel this path will be of tremendous intrinsic reward and value to him no matter what happens.

Update: Dustin not only reached his goal of making it downstate, he made it to the sweet sixteen, and he did it in one of the toughest wrestling states in the country - Ohio. And last time I checked, he was continuing his wrestling career at College of Moutn St. Joseph in New York. How cool is that!!!
