A great number of men all love sports. I for one am into it more than I would have preferred it myself. We can’t get enough of it or rather the emotion, thrill and the adrenaline rush we get from it every time our favorite team or athlete that we have been following faces a worthy adversary. Personally, I think I’m beginning to display symptoms of turning into a sports buff. If you’re wondering whether you already are one, consider some of the factors that should be apparent when you have indeed turned into that other side of the fence.
Golfers are not immune into befalling in this category. If you are currently playing the game of golf, try and catch yourself asking to drive to the course even if not within your tee hours. Go ahead and quiz yourself a little bit to see if you are going across that fine line of being an enthusiast and a sports buff for your respective game. Here are some questions you can work with:
- Do you indulge yourself in front of the television to watch golf every time you get a chance anywhere?
- Do you not miss any big golf event?
- Have you gotten anyone annoyed because all you can talk about in conversation is about golf?
- Are you now starting to dream about golf clubs or any other equipment on that matter?
- Have you gotten to the point of putting up a poster of your favorite professional golfer?
- Are you subscribed to more than just one golf magazine?
Okay, don’t laugh, because if most of your answers started the “N” word as in “NO”; then you still are part of our normal universe. Answering otherwise would have meant that you’ve started to flinch towards becoming sports buff.
“When that is the case then what should I do?” – This is the proper response that should come up in your mind once you’ve answered all those yeses on the quiz above. Asking that question would mean that you still have a chance to get things back the way they normally are. It is tantamount to recognizing the problem. Any personnel that claims he is able to help an individual get back to the normality of things would tell you that recognizing that there is a problem is always the first step before even attempting to formulate a solution.
Usually when there is a problem the first one we approach would be our immediate connection. Those would be our family and friends. They are the ones closest to us and are the most affected ones when there is imbalance with our behavior. They should also pinpoint our worst so we can better focus on what adjustments needs to be prioritize so we can display change right away.
Being a sports buff is not a disease, but in case you haven’t notice it works much like a full time job just so we can get our fix. It takes away from the time that is supposed to be spent to other aspects of a holistic person’s life. It restricts us to live our lives in the highest possible standards.
