Never again in the history of Golf, would the name of Tiger Woods be erased like it almost was a few years ago.
Back in the days when Tiger Woods was reigning in the game of Golf, it was just the smartest way to describe anyone who’s succeeding.
In fact, I remember chatting with a friend and she was like “ I hope you’re going to be the Tiger Woods in this?”
Incidentally, I was just hearing the name for the first time. So, I smiled (Awareness = Zero for me then).
When I got back, I tried asking a few others and it seemed like I was in the same boat with them.
Fortunately, a few days or probably weeks later… It popped up again from the mouth of a very close friend and I sorted to know what Tiger Woods meant. Gladly he gave me history up to date. And since then, I fell in love with TG.
I became emotional about his travails when it all started.
Losing games, having that terrible spine injury, losing his relationship (divorce), children and many more.
But again, this is a man that at the age of 3 had bet with himself to beat the World’s best Golfer’s Titles.
Alas, things changed.
I presume he like many of us wrote himself off.
Just as that was happening….. This great guy picked himself up again. Went for surgery. Who knows who the advisors or mentors are? I must say they did a great job.
Well, the long and short story is that some big shots like William Hill had to even bet on him and guess what? They said he’ll never again win the Green Masters.
Betting over $1,000,000 for this was one of the greatest mistakes Williams made.
To the shame of the gambler, and to the joy of many of us, Tiger Woods Won.
This is not all.
Most people have had the worst experiences in life. From family to business to relationships, and many more.
What holds you is just the sense of “luck coming by someday” isn’t it?. And that’s really wrong.
What should hold you should be the sense of Yes, I failed, but I’m going to go on trying and trying and trying until I succeed.
That’s what should hold you.
A lot of you have given up on the stage of life’s distractions. You’re even scared of speaking in public because someone is going to shut you down.
Someone is going to point at one of your biggest flaws. Someone is going to shade you off. Someone is going to piss on your face. Someone is going to laugh at you. Just someone……
And you decided to remain as the loser instead of that man or woman who is ready to see his/her setback as a setup for a comeback.
Today, I urge you to take a leap again.
You’re not finished yet, so far you can breathe.
Go back to that failed path. Take a deep breath and start all over again.
Don’t worry, even if you get screwed the 100th time. Just keep screwing up, because……
Just one more time is all that you need for a comeback.
Do have a blissful morning.
