On April 1st, 2006... the night before Wrestlemania 22 in Chicago, Bret Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
In closing his acceptance speech he left the world with a few final words of advice that I thought were very wise, and really applied to the undertaking I'm currently in the midst of.
"The best way to rise to the top is to give yourself up to lonliness, fear nothing, and work hard."
That had really stuck on me, and I'm trying hard to hold that in my mind, and in my heart as I push through these final weeks leading up to the show.
He also said, "Life is based less than you think on what you've learned, but more on what you've already got inside you."
