Jack Nicklaus makes hole in one

Image
Deadspin repots that the "Old man's still got it!" Jack Nicklaus got a hole-in-one on the fourth hole of Wednesday, April 8's par-3 contest at the Masters.  Mr. Nicklaus makes 75 look flawless!

All of us are not as perfect as Mr. Nicklaus, but consider the following: "If every shot you hit was a hole-in-one you'd lose interest.  You have to hit a few in the woods sometimes to appreciate the game.  Much like life."

Lee Trevino is one of the few golfers that beat Jack Nicklaus.

Make a choice.  How do you perceive yourself?  Do you consider yourself average? Or do you consider yourself beautiful...successful...limitless...VICTORIOUS!?  Are you too afraid to make a choice (1:45)? Be honest with yourself!

Phys.org reports that people tend to overestimate the likelihood of new technologies' success; this overconfidence can influence important decisions, such as investment choices.  Why not have the same confidence in your own abilities?  Why don't you know that you are beautiful?

Victory Lesson on Creativity: Incredible trick free-kick in Women's football match; BT Sport

"Creativity is intelligence having fun"!  An article in YourStory, explains the importance of bold experimentation in order to achieve innovation.  Learn from failures.  Failures are stepping stones to success!

You cannot be afraid to fail when applying creativity.  "Failure is an event, not a person.  Yesterday ended last night."  You must be willing to experience failure if you wish to succeed.



We are defined by how we react to failure.  It is stormy now yet the rain does not last forever.  Do not allow failure to defeat you.  Instead, treat failure as a teacher.  Remind yourself that it's okay not to be perfect.

No matter how broken things may seem you can always build yourself back up.  It takes time.  Do not allow your struggle to become your identity.  The bad times make the good times better...

Diversification
Justin does it all.  After mastering music he decided to develop his acting career.  In 2011, Justin's role in Friends with Benefits led to numerous award nominations and great reviews.  Top News explains that Justin's role in Runner Runner was highly appreciated by fans.  Mr. Timberlake also performed great in The Social Network and Bad Teacher to name a few.

Find space in order to grow and exercise your diversity.  Diversifying means being brave enough to explore in order to find a superior version of yourself.  Timberlake could have stayed with NSYNC in fear of his solo career failing.  Instead he decided to invest in himself and expand his career.  The result has been gratifying and he would have never experience it if he would not have tried.

Warren Buffet explains that diversification is protection against ignorance.  It makes little sense if you know what you are doing.  Justin Timberlake won the Innovator Award because he is not afraid to take-on ch…
