Mike started wrestling professionally in high school, and his dad was his biggest fan. But after the sudden passing of his father, Mike felt lost and unsure of what to do.
In his TED@UPS talk, Mike shares how a fellow wrestler gave him a life-changing lesson. His friend explained that the best wrestlers take their strongest traits and “turn them up” in the ring. It was an idea Mike applied to his wrestling career – and his life.
Today Mike continues to showcase the turned-up version of himself, and he encourages others to do the same.
