    Ugly,

    Despite my many ramblings, my life has been progressing in an unbelievable way and I would not want to have it any other way. I love being big and strong, knowing fluently two languages, having many awards in wrestling, having college degrees, ability to think, and hopefully doing many great things in the future.

    I didn't need any false beliefs for this and I feel I am a stronger person for it.

    Big - So how do you truly know you are at your maximum potential? What if there is more out there but you just can't open your mind to it?

    Big someone who is strong does not need to list off his accomplishments in order to convince everyone that he is succesful.

    I don?t see too many God believing people doing more than I have done. I am the only one among all my relatives here that was invited to a Private school. In that private school I was the only white guy (this is not meant to be racist since only 3 other guys did it and they were all black) to reach Prep school nationals finals. I was only one of two guys in the school to earn Prep All American status 3 times despite wrestling folkstyle for only 3 years.

    I did not become an All American in college but no one in college went from 142 to HWT and made AA either.

    I had a master?s degree at 26. I decided not to pursue a corporate fitness career because I felt I could do more.

    I will let you all in on a secret.. I decided to learn everything a well educated American would know instead, so I learned thousands of vocabulary words, I have read 60% of the law tauight in law schools, I have read many books, and I am in the final process of studying for LSAT so that I can get a very good grade and apply to law school.

    I needed these 4 years as an immigrant to catch up on everything I missed with regard to education. I refuse to live as an immigrant. And want to get the full potential out of myself.

    Training for Olympics is great and I might still do it. However, pure wrestling makes your brain waste in other areas and I am not ok with that.

    I am not interested in begging people for some money while I am training for wrestling either. Its just not in my character.

    There, I tell God to step away as I pursue my own plans.

    Considering my personal situation, not too many. I think I have done the most I could so far considering the environment I grew up in.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention I was the only wrestler in my school that took AB and BC calculus. Also, I won a Yale Cup award as a junior for being a 3 sport varsity athlete (soccer, wrestling and track)

    No you are right, except what about Ozzie Smith Hall of Fame short stop for the Cardinals grew up with a single mother in a rough neighberhood in CA his first glove was a paper sack, do you think you accomplished more than he did he is a person of faith.

    How about Walter Payton to some the greatest running back in the history of the NFL grew up dirt poor in Missisippi he was a man of faith and got a degree.

    Reggie White
    Sam Walton
