Golf has a crazy way of telling who we truly are as a person. Many people judge us by the way we play the game. Everyone has a favorite quote they live by, whether in business or in their personal lives. Here are five humorous golf quotes that will get you thinking about what is really important in life as seen through the game of golf:
"Golf is the most fun you can have without taking your clothes off." --Chi Chi Rodriguez
Always have something to look forward to each day. It may something you ordered by mail and are anxiously awaiting its arrival or just relaxing on a quiet Friday night cooking for yourself with some soft music. Treat yourself often. Golf has a way of taking your mind away from the daily grind.
"Golf is a game in which you yell 'Fore', shoot six, and write down five."
Never cheat yourself out of anything. If you practice that, you will less likely cheat anybody or at anything. Remember, there is always an extra pair of eyes watching what we do and how we do it, especially in organizations.
"Golf is a hard game to figure. One day you'll go out and slice it and shank it, hit it in all the traps and miss every green. The next day you go out and for now reason at all you really stink."
Don't take life so seriously. Get out of your own self's way and let things happen. There is a reason why things happen to us?just listen for the answer and don't over analyze it. Our success in is determined by which path we take in life-follow the one that has a heart.
"If you break 100, watch your golf. If you break 80, watch your business."
Be sure to put balance in all aspects of your life. We realistically cannot be the best at everything. Concentrate on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Most successful men and women do just that. They delegate or hire their weak areas to others. It is the same for successful organizations-they concentrate on their strengths, not their weaknesses.
"If you think it's hard to meet new people, pick up the wrong ball."
Show genuine interest in everyone you meet. Ask them about themselves instead of trying to impress them with your credentials. Remember, the top questions to ask anyone that will make a positive impression are: who, what, when, where, how, and why.
