quote
Ask yourself the question, “How would I play the shot if I knew I couldn’t fail?” You could then take the leap of faith and seek your highest, most joyful experience. If we are willing to take that risk, passion can ignite explosive inspiration and creativity revealing our unrealized abilities. This, in turn, supports the purpose and mission in our pursuit of play. Should you try that impossible golf shot and fail, you are at least stretching yourself to the next level. But, should you succeed, you release an adrenaline rush that allows the human spirit to soar and move ever closer to the heart of the game. This willingness is what I refer to as “perfect play.” It is not defined by the score that you record. Perfect play is not about winning or losing. It is about how you participate in the game.
