4 days ago
Life Lessons honors the life and times of the King of Golf, Arnold Palmer who passed away on September 25, 2016.
He was lucky enough to have a career that lasted more than 60 years and saw him earn 62 PGA tour titles, in addition to those seven majors victories. And while his accomplishments are impressive, his greatest victory was remaining humble in spite of his legendary status. He influenced a lot of people in countless ways during his lifetime.In a recent interview, Mr. Arnold Palmer, member of the Golf Hall of Fame and winner of multiple Major tournaments, was asked if life could give him a second chance, what shot would he have liked to hit again? To the surprise of the interviewer, Mr. Palmer, who is known for his missed opportunities to win other Major tournaments, responded: “None.” Palmer went on to share that although he would like to hit again a few critical shots in his pursue to win other Major tournaments, he was very fortunate of having had that experience in his golf career. Those missed shots provided him with a source of wisdom and experience that eventually became extremely valuable. He was also very grateful for the great support network as he learned from those unfortunate experiences and turned them into learning experiences not only in golf, but also in his personal life. Mr. Palmer was humbled and wise. He was taking life and golf experiences as a source of wisdom. He learned from his failed attempts, and kept working hard. He kept making adjustments, and did not blame himself or others for his missed opportunities. His approach was -constant learning. Every win enhanced his confidence; every missed opportunity was a chance to learn something new. A loss may feel like a devastated experience, but, in retrospect, it may well be the best experience that an athlete could have. Learning from one’s experiences provides the ultimate life lesson teachings on the way to success.
