Here in Central Texas we have everything that is larger than life (it seems) and it’s just a Texas tradition that is in our core values and spirit.
Most recently world famous actor Matthew McConaughey and Austin, TX favorite stopped in to visit his alumni at the University of Texas football training facilities to speak to them about their motivation by simply commenting on “Why do you play the game?”
With that simple question, we all have our own answers. Your first response may be generic, “It’s because I love disc golf.”
Your other response may be more specific, for instance mine is, “It allows me moments of solo relaxation while testing my mental and physical skills to keep improving.” [back story: Disc Golf helped me as a Disabled Veteran, get back out there, to rehab and have fun again]
Whatever your answer is, disc golf is a sport that brings out our own personal answers to this question every time we play.
So the question still remains the same and I ask you, “Why do you play the game?”
The answer may be deep and it may be personal, but at the end of the day it changes everything about yourself. You grow, you develop, you push yourself, and you know that great feeling that it brings with it.
Let disc golf drive yourself like you throw your disc. Let it bring you far down the fairway, make some holes-in-one, and allow you to enjoy the time you get to play it.
Spend some time and listen to Matthew’s question of inspiration and then give it a deep thought that will inspire you when you need it.
“I’ve found that I have done my best work… (only) when I have pushed myself farther than I think I could be..” ~Matthew McConaughey
