Over the past couple of weeks, I got in a funk, uncertain of what I want to do with my life. I was still figuring who I am such as what is my purpose here on this Earth. It appears that I seem to have everything going on but something was still missing. So I spent some time reading and surfing the web especially Wikipedia. I can’t imagine not having Google or Wikipedia. I also go to Amazon.com often to read customers reviews. I realize that by doing a lot of reading does help with the sense of who I am. After a while of doing that, it dawns on me that I need a role model and as you know, imitation is one of things of how we learn. I’ve found a person who I’d like to model after. That person is Tiger Woods. The more I read about him, the more I feel in common with him. He is a shy person but when he’s focused on something like golf, nothing can stop him. That is true about me. Once I get started, I don’t stop till I achieve that I was aiming for. I could spend hours at a driving range tuning my swing or in front of computer coding for hours. Lately, what I lack is the focus and that I easily get frustrated or have a lack of patience. Tiger Woods had the same problem that he tends to get impatient sometimes. So, he and I share similar personality and ofc, I love to play golf. :)
Excerpts on him:
If one word could describe Tiger Woods’ personality, it’s “conscientious.” His attention to detail and tireless determination to reach his goals is what separates him from the competition. For Woods, his drive to achieve wasn’t born over
People say Tiger has a real presence and that his ability to help others extends beyond the U.S. He is truly a multi-racial person, not just a black athlete. People feel that he will be a big influence on people across the world – and not just in a golf sense. He can hold everything together. He is a universal child – truly multi-cultural.
That’s what I want to be, a person who can keep it real and together. I remember in my youth that I received the most conscientious award from my former dorm supervisor.
I’ve started writing in my journal book to write down my thoughts and things that I want to do. I realize that every night, I need to think about my day, whether I was productive, and write to plan my day ahead so that I’ll be ready to get out of bed and start the day. If I feel my focus begins to waver, I’ll look in my book and get my thoughts organized. If I start to feel frustrated or down, simply, I’ll google the man, Tiger Woods, and read more about him.
