Find Your Balance

Why You Should – Go For It!

There was a study recently done by a well respected Insurance Company that could relate to your golf game. In this study, the Insurance Company visited 10-different Senior Citizen centers around the country, wanting to know what people nearing their final phase, thought about how they lived their life.

I won’t go into full details about the results of the study because you’re here to read about golf and how to improve your game. Though one of the questions the Insurance Company asked and subsequent answers they received is interesting – and I think it relates to how we sometimes think about our golf.

They asked the participants – “If you could live your life over again, what would you do differently?” The overwhelming answer might surprise you. 83% of the participants said they “would take more risks.”

Go For It! Play More Golf!

Now how does that relate to your golf game?

No, it doesn’t mean that you should fire at every flag or open up your lob wedge all the way to try to land the ball just over the bunker in that “sucker” pin placement. It relates to your golf game because we’re always saying we’re going to do the things we love to do – for example: “I’d really love to improve my golf game, it needs it!” – but inadvertently, something always gets in the way. In our fast paced world, where we’re constantly being distracted – we need to make more time for ourselves and do the things we love to do. Because sooner or later, we’ll be the ones being asked the questions by the Insurance Company.

We recently had a Doctor from Louisiana come to see us for a 3-Day Golf Made Simple program. And as we sat around the table at lunch talking and getting to know each other, he said something that I thought was incredible and I’ll never forget. He said “one of the reasons I play golf is for balance in my life.” I love that!

Go For It – Dr. K!

Picture a triangle with a piece of wood perfectly balanced on the top point. Then on the left side of the wood – picture yourself as the business/family person and all the time (weight) you devote to the well being of others. On the right side of the wood – picture yourself and the little time you’re able to devote to your well being. Is the board even or is it tilted more to the left side where you can actually picture yourself losing your balance trying to help everybody else around you? What are you going to do to re-balance yourself? –

Go For It! Play Better Golf!

“For balance in my life” – isn’t that a great reason to play better golf? And it’s similar to a quote by Jim Rohn, who said – “You need to throw out the old phrase of I’ll take care of you, if you take of me. And replace it with – I’ll take care of me for you, if you take care of you for me.” Doesn’t that make so much more sense? Take care of your golf game and because you’ll have more “balance in your life!” – the people around you will be better off.

Take more risk – improve your golf – and as Dr. K said – you’ll find “balance in your life!”

Go For It! Thanks Dr. K
