The movie The Greatest Game Ever Played is a story about golf champion Francis Ouimet, a teenaged caddy who eventually gets the chance to compete in the 1913 US Open. Several success principles can be taken from the film and applied to our lives, the greatest game we’ll ever play.

Success Principles for Life – Part 4

– Be who you are, not what others say you are. Some of the greatest people in history started out quite differently than the legacy they created. The past is part of the story, part of the game. You are who you are, and other people won’t always see it.

– Prepare to earn your luck. Opportunity often chases those who aren’t looking for it. Play your game and get better at it. At the right time some luck might come around and test your ability to see it, respond to it, and use it to your advantage and advancement.

– “There are two kinds of players; those who keep their nerves under control and win championships, and those who do not.” That line comes from the movie and applies to our lives. Each day we wake up to play the greatest game—life. Every day is a championship round. Take control and play it to win.
