We all have problems and issues.
Things we've done or are doing that we're not proud of. Every single one of us has problems, some are more severe than others.
I know there is a lot of talk going around about Tiger Woods right now. Too much in my opinion. The guy has a problem, did some terrible things (haven't we all did things we're not proud of), and he is now paying the price for those terrible things.
I wrote a worthy post about him a couple years ago which you can read here. Much of what I said there still holds true.
I listened to Tiger's statements today and found two key quotes in what he said:
"It's not what you achieve in life that matters, it's what you overcome."
Some things in life come easy. So it's not what you do, but it's the problems and obstacles that we must overcome to achieve them.
"I am the one who needs to change."
He took responsibility for his actions.
I realize there might not be a whole lot of substance and authority behind these statements, but I believe there is some truth to them both for leaders and golfers.
