Those that know me know that I love the game of golf for many reasons. Today I witnessed one of the most amazing feats in golf I have ever seen (sorry Tiger) and I have been watching professional and amateur golf since the early nineties.
One of my favorite current golfers is Vijay Singh from the island of Fiji. Vijay is known for his incredible work ethic. He practices his golf swing and exercises relentlessly. He is currently 45 years of age, an age when most professional golfers are thinking more about the champions tour, not competing against and winning tournaments against the top players in the world that are in their twenties.
Vijay is known as one of the best ball strikers on tour, second only to Tiger Woods in that category. The one thing that has plagued Vijay the last couple of years has been his putting which has been inconsistent. Inconsistent putting has kept Vijay from winning even more tournaments. Before the Deutsche Bank Championship started a few days ago Vijay said he was blocking out all the negative comments made about his putting over the past year and was repeating to himself "I am the greatest putter in the world". He kept telling himself and his caddie this each day of the tournament and repeated it many times today on the course.
Vijay became a putting machine! Today alone he sank breaking putts of 35 feet and 60 feet! Sergio Garcia who played with Vijay said it was the most amazing display of golf he had seen and that no one can ever know just how good Vijay played today. Vijay not only won the tournament but also broke the course record!
Vijay won his second tournament in two weeks and earned another $1,260,000 and became the leading money leader for the year and increased his lead in the Fed-Ex cup standings. He won today by an amazing 5 strokes over his nearest competitor, beating several world ranked players in their twenties.
Last week Reece Mack wrote the amazing blog Do You Want To Achieve Success? I'll Let You in on A Little Secret... which spoke about the power of visualization. I know of many cases in which Realtors and other individuals have used visualization to achieve amazing success. Elaine Northrop from Maryland used visualization in the nineties to surpass one million dollars in commissions in one year and buy a condo in Florida that had gone into contract with another buyer hours before Elaine decided to buy it. Elaine took pictures of the condo and "Saw her family having Thanksgiving Dinner" in that condo. A month or so after Elaine returned to Maryland she received a call that the sale fell apart. Elaine purchased the condo and her family had Thanksgiving dinner in their Florida condo that year!
Stop listening to all the negativity about the current housing market. Tell yourself "I am the Greatest Realtor in the World" and beleive it! Write it down and paste it on your bathroom mirror. Repeat it to yourself throughout the day. Convince yourself that you are the best Realtor and go get what is yours!
Conceive it, believe it, Achieve it!
