The amazing thing about golf is that at the end of the day golfers don’t remember the multitude of horrible shots they made. All they remember is their one great shot and this memory inspires them to come back again and again in an attempt to make another great shot.
We can compare this thought process to how many of us approach work and life. Instead of focusing on the one good thing that happened to us each day we often think about the 100 things that went wrong. Instead of thinking about our successes we replay our failures over and over again in our mind.
The key is to think like a golfer and remember the one great conversation, the one energizing meeting, the one act of kindness, the one meaningful accomplishment or the one special moment that made you smile, laugh and cheer.
No matter how difficult our days are, there’s always a positive moment we can choose to focus on. The key is to remember them, focus on them and get addicted to them. Let them inspire you to wake up and take on each day just as you would a golf course. You’ll go through life learning from your mistakes but remembering and focusing on your successes.
Summing-up: We have to forget the 100 things that went wrong and remember the one thing that went right. The memory of our successes and positive experiences will motivate us to come back again and again.
