"Act Without Expectation"
Easter is a great time for reflection and a time of renewal. I was thinking this morning about how we can apply the attitude of gratitude to our golf games. It all starts with our attitude. We can control our attitude, it's the number 1 most important thing to expend energy. I talk a lot about acceptance. One beautiful thing acceptance grants us is being grateful. Being grateful for the moment and accepting exactly where we are today. Be grateful that you are on a golf course. Be grateful that you get to play a game you love. Be grateful that you get to challenge yourself and your character. Be grateful for what the game teaches.
The more we cultivate this quality, the more we will stay calm and relaxed when in times of adversity. I challenge you today, on Easter Sunday to renew yourself with an attitude of gratitude. Be kinder to yourself, take a deep breath and be thankful for all that you have and all that you have in front of you. Remember, play the game and enjoy the walk!
