Seven Days In Utopia

I recently read the book Seven Days In Utopia by David L. Cook. It was also made into a movie which I have yet to see, but now want to. I thought I would share some of the life lessons the main character was taught while spending seven days in Utopia.

  • If you want to build a successful organization, you better build a bullet-proof foundation for WHY you want to do what you do and HOW you do it. This is so true! If your WHY is not strong enough, when the going gets tough, it will be too easy to just give up on your dreams or your goals. I’ve heard it said that your WHY should be strong enough to make you cry, or better yet, that you would die for. Would you die for your children?
  • Every Champion has convictions, but perennial champions have convictions based upon foundations. These foundations become the first line of defense when facing adversity. Everyone faces adversity. It’s just a matter of how we deal with it. Are your convictions based upon foundations and have you written them down?
  • Emotional responses make us vulnerable to the trap. This BLOG is called Success Is Attitude Management, and if we can’t learn to manage our attitudes and emotions, then the deck is stacked against us in becoming a champion in any endeavor. Have you ever responded emotionally to a bad shot on the golf course? Have you ever responded emotionally to a sale not made or being rejected by someone? Stay strong and committed to your dreams.
  • All golf shots start with a blank canvas. We must paint the shot with our eyes first before our body can produce it accurately. Not only is this true of golf, it’s true for life. If we don’t visualize and know where we are going, we probably won’t get there. We get to paint our own canvas of life and create whatever we want our life to look like.

Over the next few days, I will share some more life lessons or success principles that I think this book points out. It’s a wonderful book and if you like golf or like to learn about life, it’s a must read.

Make it an awesome day.
