The success of your golf game depends on your determination to overcome the challenges that you encounter as you play. Golf is very similar to life; your success in life is related to how you deal with challenges.
Your attitude towards the game is really important. Some folks like to complain or make excuses and others like to tackle each challenge as it arises and overcome it.
The fact is this, challenges actually present opportunities. Challenges present you with new situations that you have not addressed yet and as result you get to learn something new.
This of course is easier when you are younger as we age we tend to fall into a groove and settle. Challenges in this case can be a pain in the neck.
But the challenge of golf is also the very thing that brings you back to play more. To really improve your golf game or if like me you just enjoy playing good golf – then your attitude towards the challenges that lay ahead will be the foundation on which you improve your game or the opposite which would be to continue as you are.
To step up your game you need to know which part of the game you are most challenged with. Many people do not measure their game because they do not want to address their weaknesses as this may affect their ego.
They would prefer to play as they are and that really is the essence of mediocrity. Do things in half measures and continue to do so.
This is not about a lecture, its more about understanding your game as it is and then naturally you will improve.
