Not your destiny . . .

On the eve of the Masters back in March, golfer Rory McIlroy had some wise words to share:

“The notion that the Masters somehow represents McIlroy’s destiny, or a logical career step, is the next to be batted away. “No one is owed anything, due anything, it’s not my turn,” he says. “I don’t believe in that stuff. My dad always used to say to me: ‘If it’s for you, it won’t go past you,’ and I hate that line because that’s not how it works. You have to go and do it yourself. It doesn’t just magically fall into your lap. I’m not due anything, I don’t deserve anything, everyone starts on an even playing field on Thursday morning. Whoever plays the best will win.”

A very honest commentary from someone who absolutely refuses to believe that he’s destined to win.
