I was thrilled to see that Tiger Woods reclaimed his health and his sport. It proves the point of never giving up (when, of course, you have the passion within you). The anterior back surgery they did proved not only to be a success but it helped him become a champion again in his own right, winning his 5th Masters and is now a 15-time major winner. It took him 10 years to finally get his 5th Masters but with persistence, discipline and dedication it was done. Nobody says it’s going to be an easy ride just because you’re passionate about something.
I constantly speak on the subject of getting to your best self. That best self is a different narrative for probably all of us because, even if we’re in pursuit of the same thing, we are unique individuals. And, the smallest of difference is going to make an impact on how we present ourselves, our craft and hence our success based on our authenticity.
It is very clear to me that passions that continue to remain within our hearts, should be pursued; relentlessly. They wouldn’t be there if they weren’t meant to be pursued. However, take note that Tiger went through 4 back surgeries not including any other surgeries related to other parts of his body for this sport He even sat out the entire year of 2016 for healing.
Here’s the thing, if you’re passionate about something, don’t give up even if things are affecting your game plan, whatever that might be for you. You have to pursue the remedies/solutions (i.e., studying, practice, discipline, health, education, surgeries, and therapy) that line up with your narrative to succeeding in your passions.
