Now I'm most def not a good writer so if you have any stupid comments or remarks keep them to yourself.
I get asked this on social media a lot - Any advice for an aspiring pro wrestler or "sports entertainer" ?
So I'm not the best advice giver but my 2 cents gotta count for something. I think the most important thing in any career that you might choose is education. While a degree or diploma might seem important there are many entrepreneurs out there who dropped out of college early to pursue their business goals. I think for an athlete a back up plan is super important. Also if you're thinking of becoming a pro wrestler there are no guarantees in this business so I'd say its good to have a back up plan. Even if you have all the talent in the world you might break a leg and won't be able to compete so what do you do then? Also the powers that be might not like you very much so then you have no chance either. (Since its not a real sport and someone else dictates your fate).
Anyways more about that on a later date. The second best piece of advice that I was never given is about the science of the body. More specific - Nutrition. I started working out at a very young age and didn't have info at my fingertips. Growing up in South Africa everything I did was trail and error. Luckily we live in an age where you can just google anything and everything or buy a book on, literally, any subject. Speaking of entrepreneurs and nutrition advice, I wish that I had this book, The SuperNatural Lifestyle, when I started working out. Let me just clarify this book is NOT only for gym junkies or health freaks but its a very informative book about nutrition no matter what your fitness/health or lifestyle goals are.
This book was written by a very good friend of mine Aaron W Reed who is a 100% natural athlete (I know in this day and age its hard to believe) but Aaron is legit. He is a Health and Nutrition Specialist with a passion for uncovering the mystery of the human body. Having battled and overcome more than one potentially fatal illness, including cancer as a child (Leukemia ALL), Aaron knows firsthand and has demonstrated how vital nutrition is to the human body.
