Cael Sanderson

His attitude is incredible. I have been reading a lot of his stuff lately and just his insight on different things.

“I got what I deserved out there.” – When asked about his 5th place finish at the worlds

Then, got completely screwed by the refs in the bronze medal match…and then says “it was a coin toss.”

Later in the interview he breaks down when asked about a former athlete he used to coach who won the WC’s. Just such a genuine and humble guy.

PS – he married a girl that grew up in Estherville (12 miles away from my hometown)

I also read something of his that made me change my entire attitude about how I had been carrying myself…For some reason all I have been told recently is “You gotta be selfish man….As a weightlifter to ge to the top you gotta be selfish.” So, for about a year and a half now I have been selfish. Not helping people out, thinking of myself. Doing things when they are convenient for ME. What the H is wrong with me? I’ve never been like that in my entire life and I can’t believe I actually thought that was the way to get to the top.

Being an amazing human being and giving more than you receive is much more honorable than trying to be “selfish.” That is just a joke.

Cael Sanderson is the man!

  1. Jared, as someone that has known you since you arrived in Vegas, I gotta say “selfish” has never been a worried that would have crossed my mind when it came to describing you.

    • Thank you very much! I appreciate the kind words. I think we can all strive to better ourselves, and, 99.9% of that starts with our attitude and being humble. Thanks for commenting, it picked up my spirits🙂
