Down, Down But Not Out!

Happy Golf Ball Character Swinging A Golf Club

I LOVE golf, and I love following Mike Weir, one of Canada’s national sports treasures.

He accomplished the unthinkable in 2003 and won the Master’s Golf tournament, the most coveted championship in all of golf. He put in a few more good years, and then the wheels fell off. An elbow injury, swing changes, loss of confidence.

It went from bad to worse and then finally, he almost fell off the map. He had more money than he could ever dream of, and could have packed it in and lived happily ever after. But this was golf, this was all he knew, this was what he LOVED to do. Well it all paid off last weekend. He was one shot back in the final round of the Byron Nelson tournament with a chance to win. He  played a fantastic round, and came up two shots short. A bounce here and there and he would have won.

Check out these two articles about his exciting weekend and 2nd place cheque for $750,000.

The best part of the story was seeing the smile on his face as he walked off the course and was interviewed after the round. The feeling of self-satisfaction must have been overwhelming.

Don’t quit… EVER

Things will get difficult along the way

But think about the FANTASTIC feeling you will have when you get where you want to go!

I don’t care if you are starting a business, growing an existing one, or making time in your life to do things that you really want to do.

This is your one shot, so you might as well make the most of it.

Mike Weir did and he is finally LOVING what he has always wanted to do in this lifetime again – play golf 🙂
