There’s a good reason why Coach Jim Miller now heads the Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. His love for wrestling is infectious, and his passion for life and wrestling come through in his new book, Do It Anyway.
Co-authored by his predecessor at the museum Kyle Klingman, Miller’s book is part autobiography and part motivational speech. He shares lessons learned from his days as a wrestler to his days as a coach and father. He touches on everything from finding motivation on tough days to setting your priorities.
As a college coach, Miller took a Division III college with no history in wrestling to ten NCAA titles. He took that program to the top thanks to his passion and his relentless drive to bring the best out in his wrestlers. He took that program to the top ten times because he put family first, honoring his wife and kids by staying in the community they loved rather than moving on to a larger program.
Do It Anyway is a short read that packs a wallop. Miller’s “do it anyway” philosophy can apply to anyone’s life and circumstances. Don’t feel like writing today? Do it anyway! Don’t feel like exercising? Do it anyway! Don’t feel like running laundry today? Do it anyway!
Whether you feel like it or not is irrelevant. If something needs doing, you do it anyway.
Do It Anyway is not available on Amazon, but it’s worth going out of your way to find and read it. If you can’t make it to the Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, you can order it from Coach Miller’s website. Click here to order.
