There are many values in life. To me a value is something that you enjoy, and appreciate around you. You also have a passion for the person, place or thing that you value. You have to be willing to fight for your values. There are many values in life but the two that are most important to me is wrestling and my Family. Wrestling has played a big tremendous role throughout my lifespan Family is the most important value because they will always be there for you no matter what. Wrestling is a significant value to me because it has played a crucial part in my life.
It made me who I am today. Wrestling is different than most sports. It’s not just any sport you play its more like a lifestyle. You have to make sacrifices if you want to be successful at the sport. You have to give up allot of your everyday life routines. That consists of no parties, no junk food, no staying up late etc. When you give up things like this that is a value in itself. This value takes me places I never thought I could be going; from traveling all around the world to being here now at NDC.
Some people would not consider a sport as an important value. Not for me I say if you are willing/have shed blood sweat and tears for that person place or thing, then that’s a value there. Family is the most appreciated value that I have. I love my family with all of my heart. I value them and they value me. There are so many values that come with family that you will always be able to share. You’re always with someone apart of your family from mom and dad to cousins. You will experience good and bad times with each and every one of them.
They will teach you who you are not by choice, but because they are a part of you. They have characteristics the same as you. They are your blood. They help you with daily life problems, they taught you right from wrong, they have molded you the guide you, if all this is not a value I don’t know what it is. Your values will make you who you are. They make up the character in you. Without values I’m not sure where I would be right now, I would not be the same person that I am today. These two values Wrestling and Family have taught me hard work, determination, and business.
For all of those I am very grateful, a glad that I had these though out my life My personal opinion if you don’t have values in life you really have nothing to live for, nothing to protect, nothing to drive you when times get hard, nothing to look forward to, not anything. People will judge you based off your important values. Wrestling is an important value to me because I’ve shed blood, sweat, and tears for the sport. My family is my number one value in my life because they’ve made be who I am today.
