Too many people have learned that making mistakes is a bad thing and so they stop attempting anything new at all. They complain about others who are successful believing that they have somehow been robbed of those opportunities. In reality, you are usually the only one holding you back from having new successes. Of course, any time you venture outside the safe “do-nothing” zone, the chance of failure will exist. I recall a wall poster I saw in a small country store with the phrase, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. This is true not only in sports but in life as well. Don’t let other people or some fear of failure keep you from growing. There is no shortage of opportunities, just people who either no longer see them or are unwilling to take action. People usually deserve the results they get.

GOLF (IN CALGARY)
After the past week with more than 20 cms of new snow, the 2013 golf season has been postponed probably by about 10 days. It’s supposed to be getting much warmer by next week but it’s always a stretch to even get 6 months of golf here. I am ready — the weather now needs to co-operate. Winter be gone please!!
