Life Lessons from a Golf Pro

I love reading inspirational stories of how people made it to their success. One of these is Gary Player, a professional golfer, who has shared his personal ‘commandments’ – the life lessons he has lived by and you can, too; hope you enjoy:

  1. Change is the price of survival
  2. Everything in business is negotiable, except quality
  3. A promise made is a debt incurred
  4. For all we take in life we must pay
  5. Persistence and common sense are more important than intelligence
  6. The fox fears not the man who boasts by night but the man who rises early in the morning
  7. Accept the advice of the man who loves you, though you like it not apresent
  8. Trust instinct to the end, though you cannot render any reason
  9. The heights of great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but that while their companies slept were toiling in the night
  10. There is no substitute for personal contact
