Jack Nicklaus has said, “If there is one thing I have learned during my years as a professional, it is that the only thing constant about golf is its inconstancy.” If you are a golfer you know how true that is. According to a dictionary definition, inconstancy is a word often associated with love. Whether you identify the word with your golf game or the changeability of a relationship, I believe you’ll agree that life itself, year by year -month by month - day by day has all the elements of unpredictability.

Just acknowledging that from time to time may help you meet life’s changes and challenges. When your life pulls to the left or slices to the right there are a few things you can control after experiencing the normal emotions of shock, fear and anxiety: ATTITUDE, BELIEFS, WORDS, ACTIONS.

Remember the quote, “When life gives you lemons make lemonade”? Well you have choices here too.

“When life gives you lemons squirt someone in the eye”

“When life gives you lemons make orange juice”

“When life gives you lemons make lemonade and find someone whose life gave them vodka and have a party”…..and do your best to find some humor as that can help balance the scale.
