See It, Feel It, Trust It are treasured words to a golfer who is striving to reach his/her potential. The game of golf can test your ability to stay focused on the challenge to get that little round ball to roll into the cup 18 times given course obstacles and traps under par. Golfers who lack the will to weather the storms in going through a process to become good golfers usually have very little chance of success in learning to play the game.
Let’s think about this for a minute… 924 days without winning an official PGA event, a new caddie, a new swing coach, a revamped swing, knee surgeries, achilles heel injuries, practice hours, and tournament play, publicly aired family issues, personal remorse, and distractions surrounding a newly released book. Tiger’s golf game and life’s realities met at the crossroads presenting the challenges of going through the process to regain his championship form.
Decisions had to be made. Success did not happen overnight and confidence did not return immediately with the mere swinging of a golf club even to the best. Tiger Woods put it best in the article ‘Tiger Ends Drought with Win at Bay Hill’, “This is a steady progression. This was coming. I’ve been close a number of times, basically since Australia (last year). I just had to stay the course. We all knew the things we were working on were coming together. It just had not shown up for all four days.”
Let us not get all twisted up in Tiger’s power in the process. As in life, going through the process applies to anyone in any profession on the planet!
What is your process for handling challenges that continue to test your ability to see, feel, and trust your climb to success in your profession?
