In The Spotlight – Resilience

When it comes to golf, there aint no bigger spotlight than this one.

I’ve been watching one of the golfing worlds BIGGEST tournaments of the year – The Masters 2018.

This year has been one of the most exciting yet with so many fantastic golfers (Rory McIlroy, Jordan Speith, Ricky Fowler) all, at some point in contention to win and grab that infamous ‘green jacket’.

Now, I’m not gonna start talking to you about ‘putting’ or who played the best shots – no, I’m talking today about something much more powerful and the reason – arguably- why winner Patrick Reed fiercely held onto the lead, even when faced with so many different challenges .

Here’s just 3 of them:

1. He hit some really bad shots – but managed to bounce back with some cracking ones.

2. He held his nerve when the crowd were clearly shouting for someone else (anyone else!) to win over him. He may just have had the least amount of support in the leading pack. (But that’s a different story!).

3. Even when he knew (from the scoreboard and the size of the crowds cheers) that Jordan and Ricky where breathing down his neck and just waiting for him to fall down, he remained rock solid in his intention to win . This guy wasn’t letting anyone in.

So today in my video below I’m talking about Resilience.

When you’re at the top of your game (in whatever you do), knowledge or skill is rarely the ultimate reason why you win.

Resilience is a decider.

Whether you love golf, or can’t bear the thought of it – these 3 tips on resilience are for you.
