Topics Covered In The Book



The meaning is as follows, firmness of mind or spirit : unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger: This book will take you through some of the struggles and hardships and what I did to forge forward with a relentless will to win.



Grind in life means: : one who works or studies excessively.. I worked a job as a pool man and then taught in the evenings, I rise early and grind all day, then repeat it. This is what self discipline is. The book will take you through some life lessons on the grind, having a never quit attitude, beating the odds while helping others.



Life lessons, beyond the mat, has been so rewarding and difficult at the same time, my growth as man as a human being has been a God driven lesson in courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control and an indomitable spirit. My hope is the lessons I have learned can now help and encourage others to pursue a life of excellence.
