60 mins Disk Golf, 100 AB crunches
Less focused golf round saved by moments of brilliance. I hit a couple 40+ foot putts and another one from down in a 10 foot creek bed. I now try for the basket with any putt within about 70 feet instead of just staying “safe” by laying up to the foot of the basket. “Never up, never in, ” as my first golf mentor used to bawdily remark with much innuendo. On the disc golf level of meaning, if it’s not up high enough to go into the basket, it has no chance of going in.
The truth is that even when I miss, I am still close enough to make the next putt, so nothing lost by trying. And I’ve been getting closer and closer with my attempts. Today I “hit metal” (the metal basket) on numerous long putts. That is its own benefit, because it generally stops a wild roll away.
Attempting every putt by going for the basket is a form of asking for what I want. “Never up, never in!”
Just a heard a replay of John Gray on Oprah’s Soul Series XM radio show. He was talking about asking for what you want (this was AFTER the golf round) and that it is okay to want and to ask for money. Intellectually I know this is true, but for some reason, I often need to be reminded.
Tonight I will start by writing down every aspect of what I want–how much, what I want to do with it, how it will feel to have it, and how grateful I am for the money I already have received.
Asking for God’s help worked so well with getting a car, why not ask for more money?
