Be Relentless


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.

    Awesome post. thanks for sharing. Was off line due to a vicious divorce. I was evicted, left without a can no meds, and $7.82 cents in the bank. Taking time to get on my feet. I’m relentless. I was given a lose-lose situation, but God came through. God bless. Butch

  4. There is a documentary film called “Free Solo” which has some similar themes about following a passion until you see it through. Alex Honnold is the only climber to have ascended El Capitan without any ropes. The dedication and practice he put into it is pretty incredible.

    • Awesome. I’ve seen a few but not sure about this one. The athlete in every sport requires so much that most just see someone doing something effortlessly. Tiger went through a number of knee surgeries as well. For a sport, that one may think it’s walk and swing, quite the contrary. The physical strength and pressure on the entire body for this sport still amazes.


  5. Tiger’s comeback is great…no question. Anyway I think you would like “Free Solo” if you have the time. A little insight into the climbing community. 😀

    Boom! Agreed. Success takes time. There will be setbacks. There will be discouragement. But I CAN DO…SO CAN YOU. It’s all about moving forward.

  8. Thank you for this. Your words of encouragement to forge ahead with whatever you’re trying to achieve in life is a powerful reminder that yes, even though there’s a monkey constantly pounding on my back, I must continue – and even feed the monkey at best.
