Sports the last subject in making life work. Sports can always be a two edge sword. Some people can be obsessed with a particular sport or a team, and it may prove detrimental to their well being and have a negative impact on most of their relationships. As a general rule I feel that being a sports fan has more benefits than problems. Its like anything in life, you must keep things in perspective, and not let the results of a sports event have too big of impact on your life. As a general rule I feel that people who follow sports, and participate in some kind of sporting activity, are more fun to be around, than people who have no interest at all in sports. There are some exceptions to this but I do feel this is significant.
So for myself, I golf, follow the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Pittsburgh Steeler, College Football, the PGA Tour, and the LPGA tour. Following sports is a nice distraction from the everyday happenings in your life and it allows you to focus on something that really has no negative consequences on how you do it. It can give you something to look forward to at the end of the day or the week. It is like any endeavor, you have to know what to follow and what to ignore. In the case of sports, you want to focus on the game and the action, not what is going on outside the sport. Athletes behaving badly, contract disputes, drug issues and controversies outside of the playing field are things that can make sports very distasteful to some. If you want to just follow it fine, but don’t get too caught up in it. The one world sport out there is soccer. Passion can run really high in soccer. There have been incidences where fans have been injured, and even killed after controversial endings in soccer games. Maybe its not such a bad thing that soccer has not caught on quite that much in the USA. That is carry things way to far. Love the game, love your team but accept the results and move on. Another one of life’s lesson that sports can help you learn.
So in the coming days and weeks, that is what this site is going to be about. I will continue to blog 100% Mental Golf, Golf in general, Meditation, Food, and Sports, in no particular order to help make life work. This not a self help site where this is going to help you achieve your goals, make great relationships and have great happiness. Hopefully it will help you make your life work. What does that mean. Well let’s look at other things in your life. Let’s look at your car. Everybody wants their car to work. When you get in your car you expect it to start. You expect it to take you from point A to point B and most likely back again. When it rains you expect the wipers to work. You want the car to stop properly, and when you hit the gas for the car to have a little pep and get your there quicker. In order for the car to work well, it needs to be taken care of. When all goes well , we sometimes take this for granted and when things don’t work quite right, it can be upsetting. This is the same as life. You want your life to work. It doesn’t have to be successful, but it has to get you from point A to point B and back again. It needs to know when to stop and go. In order for life to work well, it needs to be taken care of. It needs to be appreciative and thankful when things go well, and it needs to know what to do and how to react, when things don’t go that well. Life needs to work. Death is inevitable, no problem there.
