Golf, Success, Failure and You…

You are the master; your success is under your control; you are not under control of your success.

Somewhere, someday, someone rightly said; ‘nothing succeeds like success.’

Tiger woods is trying hard to come back; whether the Tiger ill roar again or not, is not known; but his efforts indeed need to be applauded.

You can make an effort and to encourage you, heroes; legends, success stories are sighted. Few of them are truly inspiring. You need to be encouraged; if you wish to become a golf hero.

You have taken all precautions in becoming a golf hero. You have selected a good golf course; you have selected a good golf coach; your golf practice is flawless; sometimes your style might be compared to a legend; and you feel encouraged. This is normal, natural; everybody needs encouragement.

After giving your best; you failed miserably. You are aghast; and that is quite natural. You are broken; again you gather your wits; and you start your practice again; this is remarkable, it needs tremendous courage to do so.

You start your practice again with a new vigor; you fail again, and you are finished; if you are successful; your success story will be suited to others; your bravery will be praised; but if you failed; you might be condemned; you might be called a madman.

This is your world; where even your happiness or innocent laughter depends on something; your success; unless you are successful how you can laugh; the day you become successful, you will laugh.

Your happiness is planned; misery keeps coming to you quite often,without any planning; but to stay happy you will have to plan; this is nonsense.

Your golf practice is good; your golf coach is good; your golf classes are good; there is no fault anywhere, yet, your happiness is uncertain; your happiness is depending on your success.

If you really wish to be happy; if you really wish to become a golf hero; you have to come out from this dependent tendency; you have to drop this word ‘dependent’. Self-dependent is the best remedy; if you really wish to depend on something,depend on you; else drop this word; depended.

Now two questions arise; how to drop this word dependent; and how to become a golf hero? Let us start with the latter; how to become a golf hero? There is no harm in dreaming; there is no harm in desiring; you must desire, you must dream. One who dreams is successful; hence must dream.

You preparation for golf is perfect; good practice; good golf coach; good golf courses, everything is perfect; except wisdom; focus; understanding.

You have to understand you; you have to understand, that you have limited powers; you have got the power of dreaming; desiring; planning; execution, but the result is not in your hand. You are the master; your success is under your control; you are not under control of your success. This understanding comes through Meditation.

Meditation is the key. Meditation brings miraculous results. The day this understanding comes to you that you’re the master of your success; your success is under your control, that day onwards; that moment onwards success and failure will not bother you.

And then you will get the answer of your first question; how to drop the word ‘dependent’; and the day you become independent; that moment onwards you will be wading through the lake; without getting wet.
