We all have ups and downs in our life. Some of the days are ours while some are simply not meant for us. Life is an ongoing continuous process. The times when we are morally down, we can get an inspiration from someone who has potential and tremendous amount of confidence. Someone who is unique in their terms, has good acceptance in the society and someone who is admirable. These persons can be from your family; these can be among your friends. They can also be a famous sports person, may be from the world of soccer, baseball or cricket. These persons are called as ‘role models’ who serve as an example. Today I am going to talk about my role model, a famous American professional wrestler of WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), the one and only John Cena.
Born on April 23, 1977 in West Newbury, Massachusetts; John Felix Anthony Cena (popularly known as John Cena) started his career at an early age of 23. He started professional wrestling in 2000 and signed the contract with the World Wrestling federation in 2001.
John Cena made his debut on television in June, 2002. Following the near win, Cena became the fan favourite. The three key pillars of his success are Attitude, Passion and Performance. Wrestling requires a lot of physical and mental strength and John Cena has a tremendous potential in both the aspects. He has a ‘Never Quit’ attitude. He never gave up on any challenge. He never lost a single ‘I Quit’ match till now. He was successful in defeating the pain: Brock Lesner recently. If he can face any challenge to achieve the success, why can’t we? His famous saying is ‘Rise above Hate’ and time and again he proved to be loyal to it, be it against the devils favourite daemon Kane, or against the rebellious group of the Nexus led by Wade Barrett. Why can’t we do the same today by sticking to the truth, rising above hate?
Hustle, Loyalty and Respect are the key parts of his life both professionally and personally. He has built a passion for the sport and delivers performance week after week in the arena. He is a true champion and the face of WWE. Among his achievements list, he has won 19 championships including ten times WWE Championship and twice the World Heavyweight Championship. He is also a four time tag team champion and has also won the United States Championship thrice in his career. In 2006-07, he held the championship title for continuous 380 days, becoming the longest champion of early 2000s.
Apart from his wrestling career, he has also acted in eight movies. The famous ones include The Marine, 12 Rounds, Fred and Legendary. He also released his rap album titled ‘You can’t see me’ which debuted on the 15th spot on the US Billboard 200 list. He is popular and he has made many appearances on television shows including Hannah Montana, MADtv, Saturday Night Live and Psych. He was third overall in the competition ‘fast cars and Superstars’.
He cares for the well being of society and is an active member of a non-profit organization ‘Make a wish foundation’ in the United States where he granted 300 wishes to the Arizona children who were suffering with life threatening diseases.
Cena is a true champ and this is a small narration dedicated to his personality that inspires me and many more like me. He provides me the guidance when I feel low. He teaches me about myself. He is a reason for me to watch the wrestling matches and as he has never turned his back to his fans and the WWE Universe, so should I. He makes me think that it is possible for me to achieve success in my life. Hard work along with dedication and honesty will lead me to the glory in future and then I can also proudly say that I have risen above hate in my life.
