Only Missed It By 15


This golfer reminds me of me!  (Of course, it would probably help if I ever practiced...minor detail.)

I admire this guy for setting a goal, but a goal without a plan - and effort - is just a dream that's unlikely to ever be realized.  Success in any endeavor comes at a heavy price, and to the person who says, "I would give anything to be as good as _____", the response is very often, "that's pretty much exactly what you'll have to do!"  Hard work, sacrifice, determination, and persistence are far more important than talent alone.  

As Earl Nightingale famously said, "We are all self-made, but only the successful will admit it."
