I will not tie my self-worth to the quality of my turf or my operation.
I will not let one person’s negative comment ruin my day.
I will own my mistakes, and not pass the blame onto others.
I shall train, mentor, and empower my team. I will strive to delegate more responsibilities to my team.
I shall perform my job to the best of my ability, but I will save enough of myself to have a meaningful life outside of turf.
I acknowledge that Mother Nature is in control. All I can do is adapt, overcome, and persevere through the tough stretches with a positive mindset.
I will not be afraid to ask for help if my challenges feel insurmountable.
I promise to LOOK UP each day and reflect on why my passion drove me to this industry.
Am I putting in extra hours because the job demands that I be here, or is it to satisfy my ego?
I shall always remember that the turf does not love me back.
I will go home each day with plenty left to give to the people I love.
