On this weeks episode of Mental Monday, Ben Askren talks about the importance of having persistence and perseverance in the face of failure and adversity as an athlete. He explains that it’s very rare for a freshman to come into the room and be immediately successful but many get discouraged and walk away from the sport when they could experience success later on in their career with persistence. Askren wraps up with the episode by stating that if you can become accustomed to the defeats and struggles of wrestling and sport in general, then it will prepare you to deal with the larger struggles that life has to offer down the road, and you can use the tools and lessons of wrestling to handle those struggles.
