The 5 People You Can Meet in a Golf Course

The 5 People You Can Meet in a Golf Course

Hint: It’s not just your caddy.

When someone is looking for the best golf stay and pay package, he or she is possibly hoping to enjoy some lavish indulgences. However, everybody has a different approach to a golf vacation. While many greatly value the social aspect of the game and consider the course an ideal setting for meeting new people, others view a golf vacation as the perfect way to reunite with childhood pals and rekindle old flames. Some go on a golf vacation to network with people that matter for their businesses.

Others find the fairways to be the perfect place to come face to face with their inner selves. Socializing is a big part of golfing as the idyllic setting of a golf course provides ample opportunities to people looking to know a person or a group on a more personal level and subsequently forge a deeper relationship. A golf vacation can do wonders for you if you are looking forward to bonding with the following types of people:

1. Future Business Partner

Fairways are more conducive to business deals than a boardroom where you can have only measured interactions. A golf course allows people to get to know one another in a more relaxed environment. You can even make use of your golfing skills to impress your future partner. One point to be noted, though — a chance encounter at the golf course does not automatically grow into a powerful connection. You need to have some planning to grow a casual nicety into something real.

2. Future Life Partner

Meeting your perfect partner is said to be written in the stars. So what do we singles do about this? Well, you have two choices – either sit and wait for the right person to cross your road or simply venture to write your own destiny and be at the right places at the right time to meet your future soul-mate. All of us are busy and it’s not easy to find a person with whom you may want to spend your whole life. However, golf might help. Wondering how? The scenic backdrop, a relaxed pace of the game and the long walk through the course would all play the cupid for you, while the shared passion ensures that it is least likely that you two would get bored of each other very soon.

3. Old Pal

Life would not be as nearly exciting without friends. And nothing could be more fun than bumping into an old pal from college or even high school. Any reunion has enormous elements of drama and when the meeting happens in the fairways, after a long hiatus, it carries with it the potentials of a blockbuster. Walk side by side reliving the happy memories and sharing a good laugh over the shared past, crack jokes on one another’s swings or just buzz it out in the clubhouse in the evening, a golf vacation is a perfect way to reconnect with a long-lost friend. Catching up with an old friend is an extremely happy occasion and a golf outing can facilitate that without making any one of you feel creepy or awkward.

    4. Characters of Your Future Book

    Does an author reside inside you who has always dreamt of taking the literary world by storm? But do your gray cells refuse to cooperate whenever you hit the keyboard so that you stop short of creating intriguing characters that would make your readers think, laugh and cry? Again, a golf course is the place, where you can find interesting characters for your future book.

    From utterly annoying to hilariously funny and from the loner to the ultimate gossipy – a golf course is more like an enormous open book that would let you make a detailed study into human characters. You will come across that hot-tempered guy who makes a good candidate for the anger management program that your boss was talking about the other day. Let him miss another swing on the par and see the balls, caps, stray branches and other things fly across the green. And the language? It would sure make Tiger Woods run for cover!

    Then there might be that fashion hara-kiri guy, whose attire will make you feel like you are watching a 1929 Ryder Cup match. Should you be spending your weekend in a golf resort, you are expected to come across a whole gamut of colorful characters. Study them in between playing your shots, and you will have your plate full for your maiden novel.

    5. Yourself

    The personality of a human being is the sum total of multiple aspects. Sometimes we strive to hide certain parts of our character from ourselves, simply because we consider them bad, and so undesirable. This tendency is only normal, as every person strives to be perfect. But all of us have some elements of gray areas inside us. Like them or not, they are only valid parts of our personality. It is because of the pressure of the socially acceptable norms dictating the line between ‘acceptable’ and unacceptable’ that we tend to mask them or bury them deep into our subconscious.

    But at some point of time, you must come face to face with yourself and see yourself as who you really are. It is important because meeting the real you and facing reality actually make you come to terms with life, ultimately making you happy. There cannot be any better place than a golf ground, where you can discover the inner you, perhaps for the first time in life. This introspection can go a long way to enrich yourself.

    All sports have immense emotional and health benefits. It is, however, the social side of golf that differentiates the gentleman’s game from any other outdoor games. Whether you are in search of your life partner or simply seeking to stand face to face with yourself for some honest introspection, a golf course is a place to be. Availing the luxury of the best stay and play golf package in an exotic golf destination is absolutely worth if you are looking forward to meeting the right people and nurture long-term relationships.

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

    When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

    Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

    We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

    We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

    We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

    We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

    And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

    But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

    So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

    It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

    1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

    Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

    Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

    2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

    This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

    You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

    If you seek it, you will find it.

    3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

    This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

    Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

    4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

    How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

    Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

    Learn from this article how to change your mental images: How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts

    If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

    And remember:

    You are (or will become) what you think you are.

    This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
