If I had ever been told that I would be asked to sign a note to get out of my house, I wouldn’t have believed it..
1/ 1st day out
I got up early this morning to get ready and above all not to forget anything for this first day of recovery. We meet at the parking lot of the National. We are all masked and respect the safety distances to go to the counter which is exceptionally located in the large hall of the Club House.
We are given our token for the driving range, which we retrieve on the edge of the counter. No contact, everything is very well organised.
The driving range is designed to receive very few players. Every second mat has been removed.
START-UP GOLF CHALLENGE -Team au Golf National pour une reprise
We arrive on the driving range, it is rather cool, the sun is in front of us, and we start to warm up. The body is not warm, a sensation of pain mixed with excitement. Luckily the putting goes better, even if it’s been a long time since we had forgotten the National Putting Green..
2/ What about the course
We show up on tee number one after making ourselves known to the starter
Magic start, the sun is here, and we know it’s going to be a beautiful day.
The course is unmarked, no divot, no pitch on the greens.
It’s like the first day of practice at the Ryder cup. We took pictures so stop reading, just watch 🙂
Arnold Schwarzenegger born just after WWII in Austria and move to the US during his childhood. First of all, he knew a first career in bodybuilding. In the 70’s, he won 5 Mister Unver’s title and 7 Olympia’s (most famous bodybuilding category). Then he was know as a very famous actor with several cult characters such as Conan the Barbar, Terminator or more recently, on the Expendables. He finally was known as a politician, as the Governor of the State of California from 2003 to 2011.
A course as varied as it is punctuated with success that it owes to principles of which it has never been freed.

1/ Trust yourself
Since you have an idea, a goal in mind, you should never lose sight of this idea. Never forget that you live your life for yourself and not by proxy, whether for teachers, parents, friends. The most important thing is to be happy to get up in the morning and to be fulfilled in your work.
2/ Break the rules
It is not a question here of breaking the law but of breaking the established order, of being innovative. So many rules are already established on so many topics that the goal is to think beyond, out of his comfort zone, without becoming the Original, but know how to stand out, what otherwise, what is our role on this earth ?
3/ Don’t be afraid to fail
Any project can experience failure. It is necessary to know how to draw from these failures a force to better rebound. We can’t always win, but we must not be afraid to make decisions that would prevent us from moving forward. To believe in his project and in his vision is paramount.
4/ Never listen to the naysayers
Even if some people have already tried an experiment, without it succeeding; that does not mean that you will not succeed. Do not pay attention to people who tell you who it is impossible. Do you always say that everything is possible.
5/ Work hard
We have nothing for nothing and success never comes alone. Muhammad Ali said that he began counting his rehearsals only when he began to ache, because at that moment the effort began. You have to know how to surpass yourself. Of course the moments of relaxation are important, but we must keep in mind that during these moments, somewhere else, another works, amassing knowledge, getting ahead.
6/ Give back
Regardless of the path taken, finding the time to transmit the accumulated knowledge to others is essential. This transmission will bring you more satisfaction than anything else.

At a time when the world is turning to transhumanism, mindsets are evolving at a rapid pace towards a balance between spirituality, meaning, equity, and professional and personal success.
1/ SADHGURU, one of the greatest masters Yogi
Sadhguru, aka Jagadish Vasudev, started Yoga as early as 11 years old. A graduate of the Mysore University in English Literature, he launched his foundation “Isha Foundation” to develop educational and environmental programs.
One of those achievements: planting more than 25 million trees in an arid province of India.
Today Sadhguru is invited across the planet to share his knowledge of human nature.
Whether on the podium of major events such as the economic and social conference of DAVOS, on the prestigious scene of TED, or HARVARD, LONDON BUSINESS SCHOOL, or MIT, Sadhguru filled the rooms. He gives his advice to help men not to be overwhelmed by their minds.
“The reason your mind continues unceasingly, with uncontrollable endless thoughts. It’s that you identify yourself to things you’re not”.
This is what Sadhguru explained in an Indian university.
SADHGURU is very keen on golf too
Sadhguru, invited to Google in October 2016 for the “Talks at Google” came to talk about a subject so current: Developing an Inclusive Consciousness.
It will also respond with the same simplicity to MIT researchers or future talented entrepreneurs of HARVARD.
2/ Meditation is a Key
br>The power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
More and more entrepreneurs are talking about their daily lives and especially about the awakening of Meditation.
Loïc Le Meur shares very often in these Newsletters his readings as his happiness after having read Eckhart Tolle. (Note: a book to read The Power of Now, one of the references that every entrepreneur or pitcher at MY PITCH IS GOOD have to read)
Steve jobs was also adept at meditation.
The author of the successful book: Sapiens, Yuval Noah Harari said in an interview that he meditated morning and evening.
In another register, the former successful entrepreneur, Sébastien Socchard founded WorldNet with Xavier Niel.
He became a millionaire at 30 years old. Today, while carrying on his business, he pursues for 8 years a spiritual quest that he shares very willingly on social networks.
(Note: to follow especially for his group meditation session )
3/ Paradigm changes
Today we face existential issues. “Work useful”. To realize oneself, to blossom in one’s work, to find one’s balance. The salary is no longer the first motivation.
Deepak Shopra, this Indian origin, lives in the United States. he is famous as a doctor. He goes even further by caoching great business leaders in their meditation session.
“It’s a universal practice, to develop attention in the present moment, as it is and not as one would like it to be,” Deepak explained in an interview with Madame Figaro.
Never before have there been so many students projecting themselves as entrepreneurs. A desire to break out of the codes. To carry out one’s personal revolution by realizing oneself as an individual in the service of the community.
2 years ago, one of our partners at the START-UP GOLF CHALLENGE, Maddyness wrote this article on the projection of young people into the costume of an entrepreneur.
Another Study from Opinion Way, released at the end of 2016, 62% of young people (18-24 years old) see themselves as entrepreneurs later.
We will tell you the story that shows that success is not a point to reach but the path your are wlaking on.
1/ Challenge gave ideas
START-UP GOLF CHALLENGE, the first golf competition between Investors and Entrepreneurs has seen during its events entrepreneurs who love the Challenge. Taïg Khris’ career forces respect in the eclecticism of his performances that compose it. A case study, a success story to share.
Taig Khris, with his last assignment at the Board of France Digital, aims to desacralize entrepreneurship by making it more understandable and above all more accessible.
“In France, the great ideas that can be global take a long time to emerge “is what Taïg Khris explained to Stéphane Soumier in an interview on BFM BUSINESS. (28/11/2018)
Indeed, there is a dichotomy between the amounts raised in the US and those raised in France for the same idea. We are on a range from x4 to x6.
2/ Believe in your dream
Taïg Khris started his career as a top athlete. Triple World Champions in Ramp on Ramp and win X GAMES. Taig Khris is one of the most successful extreme athletes to date.
Taking risks is part of his DNA. When he convinces the mayor of Paris to let him jump from the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower, He already knows that he will succeed in creating the Buzz. It broke the Record of the higher jump with Roller. This achievement is relayed on social networks.
Convincing is a challenge that suits him well. In 2016, he created ONOFF offering the possibility of having a second number without the need for a sim card. ONOFF is a global operator with licenses in more than 21 countries around the world. His patents and its developments were subjected to the hard law of “Cash is King”.
“Every month, I had to find 250,000 euros to save my company”.
“It was necessary to fight” he mentioned, because from a Roller World Champion to a Mobile Operator, there is a gap and it was necessary to convince funds..
Today is company run ONOFF very well. he has raised 10 Millions euros with ID Invest & OneRagtime. ONOFF is a success and Taïg has joined the Board of France Digital alongside Frédéric Mazzela (Co-Founder of BlaBlacar) recently elected as Co-President
His goal within France Digital is very clear: Help French companies to become the giants of tomorrow. “I am a competitor and I try to always see things Big”.
Opening entrepreneurship to young people with a different curriculum is also a challenge that seduces him.
3/ Get inspired in his Challenge
“The luck, the more I work the more she smiles at me” said Taïg on BFM Business studio.
It is true that organizing a world record with a Roller jump in Roller of the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower requires an organization worthy of a management of Start-up Mondial.
There are bound to be difficulties and successes. “Quick Win”, as we often say, can show us that we are on the right track.
“Thanks to workforce, passion and perseverance, we create our own positivism”. This is the sentence that must be put forward from Taig Khris as a conclusion.
It must reassure and strengthen any entrepreneur in the sense of his motivated choices in his desires.
Taïg Khris is an Outstanding Entrepreneur to Follow.
