Hello Golf Friends:
Mindset and Achievement are two major ingredients in the recipe for success. There are many contributing factors in becoming successful including character, effort, vision, goals, determination, and even luck. In this month’s blog I want to talk about what I think is the perfect addition to mindset and achievement: DREAMS!
I remember being a kid and going to the local circus that would travel from town to town. It was a one ring circus. It was fun. But I wasn’t awed or wowed by it. Then I graduated to the two ring circus. It was double the fun, faster moving, more acts, and more snacks. When I was in fifth grade we went to Ringling’s Barnum and Bailey Circus for a school trip in St. Paul, MN. Thousands of people; three rings; constant action! This is the one I really remember. Why? Because it built on what I already knew and created a greater, more meaningful, and deeper experience. All three rings working together to produce a grand result!
Mindset and achievement can be a great two ring circus. But what if we throw in that third ring? Can we make it an awesome circus? In my awesome three ring circus I combine Mindset, Achievement, and DREAMS! Each one good in itself, but working together can make something truly extraordinary.
I recently came across a quote by T.E. Lawrence:
Well, my eyes are wide open as I pursue the dream of “The Complete Golfer Golf Academy”. That dream may soon become a reality so I can start my career as a “Full-time” Teaching Professional with my own golf school. The rings are coming together to build my circus. I’m very excited for this next phase of my life. And I look forward to continuing to add the 4th and 5th rings down the road.
Right now, today, this minute; I hope you are working on pursuing your dreams and aspirations; of achieving your ULTIMATE POTENTIAL!
I created a cheap and personal recipe that I’ve followed the last few years to arrive at this point and these are my ingredients: Vision + Hard Work + Faith + Hope + Trust = TCGGA
Vision: The picture you have in your mind of what you want to be/do/accomplish (Your Utopia- Your Circus)
Hard Work: The effort you put in to complete the rings in your circus
Faith: Faith in myself
Hope: Hope in my future
Trust: Trust in my decisions
