Be Like A Caddy

I enjoy golf, and if I’m home I usually watch golf on Sunday afternoon.  As I was watching this past weekend I started to really pay attention to the interactions between the golfer and their caddy.

I got to thinking, wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a caddy walking alongside of us during the day?  Better yet, maybe we could help those around us by being like a caddy for them.

Here were just a few of the encouraging words spoken by a few caddies.

“Love it buddy”
“Believe in it”
“Great job”
“You got this”
“Perfect. Do it”
“Go for it”

Words, simple words, spoken at the right moment instill confidence.  They show that they believe in their golfer.  At times one of the most important things that they do is getting them to slow down, and think before they act. 

In addition to all of the encouragement given one of the most important things that the caddy does is carry the bag.  They carry the load. 

You may need a caddy, but today maybe one of the most important things you can do is be like a caddy for someone around you. 

Encourage them
Instill confidence
Help them think
Carry the load

What you give, you eventually receive. 

I’m cheering for you.
