I don’t know if you were watching any of the U.S. Open golf tournament recently, but that Tiger Woods is something else…
Even if you’re not a golf fan (and I’m not really) you have to admire the kid. He’s usually performing at a level that’s simply unheard of in the golf world.
Key word there is “usually”. Because during this tournament, Tiger didn’t have his “A” game.
Many of his tee shots went completely awry, making spectators scramble for cover.
Gotta admit–seeing Tiger yank a drive 50 yards left of the fairway made me feel better about my game (or lack thereof). But here’s the most interesting part…
He won the tournament.
No kidding–after carding several double bogeys, a variety of mishit shots, and putts that either came up short or went zooming 8 feet past the hole, he still found a way to win.
How did he do it? How did he pull it off? If I were to guess, I’d say it was his mental toughness.
Tiger simply refused to lose. Even though he was struggling…even though his recently surgically repaired knee was screaming in pain…even though the competition was nipping at his heels…he never gave up.
And that’s a big part of what makes Tiger a winner, over and over again.
There’s a term used in golf for someone whose game doesn’t look so hot, but at the end of the day, they still post a low score.
They’re called “grinders”. They find a way to get it done–no matter what it takes. And during the U.S. Open, Tiger Woods was most certainly a grinder.
We’ll talk more about mental toughness in the future, but if you’re finding it hard to take action now, here’s a little something to chew on….
There’s a lot of similarities between your quest for success and Tiger’s quest for golf immortality.
Think about it…you’re both extraordinary people with tremendous potential in life–much more than you’re using right now.
You both face great challenges every day and carry a burden to become something greater than yourselves.
Regardless of the circumstance, you continue to march straight forward in life with guts and a level of determination that most people don’t realize.
And finally, you both have a higher level of commitment to improvement than most people, along with the self- assurance that your special qualities will one day be recognized by many.
See what I mean?
In the past, Tiger Woods may have slowed down or faltered because of the frustrations or roadblocks he faced.
But he never stopped moving forward. And today, he’s not only considered the best golfer in the game, but possibly of all time.
You can do the same. You can be a winner in your business and in your life. All you have to do is take action.
Let’s get started…
To Higher Profits,
P.S. I know I got off track a little here, but I really felt someone out there needed to read this message.
Hopefully, it will make a difference. If you were moved by what you read, post below and let me know, okay?
