we may think why we share this, if 1 out of 1000 , got a small mind change because of this, then its our success !!
"My mom, she really empowered me to become special in sports," Mero said in the video. "The greatest gift my mother ever gave me was [that] she believed in me."
Mero elaborated to students on the destructive path he took in life. Although his descriptions were harrowing and controversial at times, there was an overall lesson he gained from his experience; his mom reminded him of the old saying that said "show me your friends, and I will show you your future."
"I've overdosed on drugs on three occasions where I should've been dead, but I believed I was kept here for a reason." Mero told the students. "I hung out with losers. I became the biggest loser of them all because I gave up everything I dreamt about as a little boy because of who I chose to surround myself with."
Mero added that when he was a teenager, he would be out with friends into the late-night hours, drinking alcohol and "getting high" on drugs. However, his mother would always leave the light on, which was a sign that she was awake and waiting for him to come home.
"My mom wouldn't go to bed until she knew her son was still alive," Mero said.
The former wrestler talked about how he didn't appreciate his mother being there for him as a teenager. Although she wanted to talk to him after he came home late that night, Mero wanted to be left alone.
"I would slam my bedroom door on the one person who believed in me," Mero said.
Mero then turned to a story about his wrestling career, which took him to Japan. He talked about a late-night reception he received in his hotel room from a Japanese promoter about an emergency back home in the United States.
"I got back on the hotel room phone and called back to the United States and said, 'Hey, what's going on?'" Mero said.
The wrestler received terrible news over the phone about his mother. The people on the other side of the phone had a hard time sharing the information with Mero.
"'Mark, your mother died,'" Mero said. "I just threw the phone down. I ran out of my hotel room. I took the elevator to the lobby. When the doors opened up, I just ran out into the street."
Mero was full of raw emotion after hearing the news of her mother's death, right up to the point of her funeral.
"I was so nervous to walk up to her casket, so I just stood way in the back," Mero said. "I kept thinking to myself, 'Mom, please wake up. Please get up.'"
Finally having the nerve to talk, Mero mentioned that his mom was a "hero" to him. Some of the kids in the audience started shedding tears in the video.
"Everything I am, everything I hoped to be was because of you," Mero said, expressing emotion as he described his mom. "You loved me so much, you gave me a life. You worked two jobs. You're the only one that ever believed in me."
Mero added that he regretted the way he repaid her through his boneheaded actions, which included hanging out with the wrong crowds and ingesting drugs and alcohol.
"All she ever wanted to do was to talk to me," Mero said.
He then had a pointed message aimed at everyone in the audience. According to Mero, the pursuit of fame and fortune happened at the expense of destroying his personal life.
"If you have a mother or a father, tell them how much you love them," Mero said. "See, my whole life was about being rich and famous, that's all I cared about. I had to win the race at the expense of my marriage, my family, [and] my friends. That's not how it was intended to be."
Mero concluded by sharing the lesson he learned with the students in the auditorium. He urged them to be "kinder to each other" and "stop with the name-calling and hurting other people."
"I learned what is truly important, and that is how precious this gift of life is, and how quickly it could be quickly taken away," Mero said. "I'm not worried about tomorrow. It's not what's in your pocket that matters; it's what in your heart that truly matters."
