Success Principles

You probably heard of the great Ben Hogan.

Ben Hogan was one of the greatest golfers of all time. One day he was approached by a blind man, who praised him for his great skill of golf! Ben Hogan asked the blind man what he could do for him. The blind man said that it was his life long dream to play a round of golf with the great Ben Hogan. He added that he also wanted to have a bet with Ben. Ben was of course hesitant about the bet since there was no way that the blind man was going to beat him. He did not want to win money from a blind man. But the blind man kept on insisting, and eventually Ben agreed to the bet. Ben looked at the blind man and asked, “What time shall we play today?”

To which the blind man replied, “I will meet you at this golf course at 9.00 pm tonight!”

By the way during those days there was no “night golfing”.

To win or succeed we must have a plan or strategy, and position ourselves to our advantage. Do not dwell on our weaknesses but rather focus and build on our strength. All of us have been endowed with the seed of greatness, and we are capable of achieving great things with our present abilities. Do not under estimate yourself.

“No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.”
