Though I do not play golf, the mental aspect of golf is fascinating to me and how it applies to life and leadership.
Over the years I have sat and discussed the mental side of golf, with those who play, actually, it was more like an interview.
Recently, I sat with a very competitive amateur golfer who had just completed a weekend of high level tournament play.
Though the weekend did not end as planned, the post tournament discussion was what I was most interested in.
In short, what happened?
The mental approach to putting, usually a strength for this golfer became a mental warzone of confidence.
Here is where the caddy comes in and maybe you are someone’s life caddy, or maybe you need a life caddy.
It was the caddy who kept them in the match, even longer admittedly, than they kept themselves.
Here are the opportunities to look for.
Someone to walk along with you, who knows the courses in life, who has insight into the strategy needed for success.
Or maybe you are that life caddy, giving observations and wisdom from experience to those who have yet traveled upon their path to purpose.
No one succeeds alone…not even in golf.
