Toronto – June 20, 2011 – 22-year-old Rory McIlroy won golf's prestigious U.S. Open major title yesterday. What was amazing about his victory is how many scoring records he broke and who held those records. Tiger Woods has been golf's phenomenon for more than a decade and it was hard to believe we might see someone exceed his talents and abilities. Then comes McIlroy, shattering Tiger's record for lowest score at a U.S Open and winning the tournament at a younger age than both Tiger and Jack Nicklaus. So what can we learn from this? That people with great abilities learn from their failures (McIlroy blew a lead at another major, the Masters, earlier this year). In order to succeed, you need to fail. If you are not failing then you are not trying anything new and not developing yourself both personally and professionally. When you fail, you learn something that will help you succeed next time around. If you remain status quo, then it is only a matter of time before you become obsolete. That is why golfers are always working on their swing and why successful companies are always developing new products and services for their customers.
