“I wanted to make a difference in the game.”
Golf is a sport of laser-like focus, mental stability, acceptance of failure, and pure determination. However, according to legendary golf instructor and GOLF Channel celebrity, Michael Breed, for athletes to pay attention to instruction, golf also needs entertainment. “The information is important, but the entertainment is way more important.”
This episode on The MindSide Podcast, Dr. Bhrett McCabe dives into deep discussion with Breed on who he is, and why he is motivated to inspire people. Michael shares his personal philosophies with our audience including the fact that he is dyslexic, which the world sees as a weakness. “Everybody has hurdles,” Breed says. The true character of a person is measured when they can use their weaknesses as strengths.
“I want to help people. That’s what I really want to do.”
Being talks about his learning disability as an asset for him to reach others who may be struggling with something in their life that they perceive as a limitation or obstacle that inhabits them from reaching their dreams. “Everybody has assets. The key, to me, is finding those assets and utilizing them.” Breed’s dad died of Alzheimer’s which led him to form a strong stance on the statement, “There is always someone who has it worse.”
The main lesson in this episode?
“Better yourself, and better others.”
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.
