Extraordinary Happens Podcast

Extraordinary people tap into what’s uniquely different about them to achieve their goals. If you have a vision and an undeniable commitment to pursuing that vision, there are no limits to what you can accomplish.

Natalie Gulbis, one of the most influential women – not only in golf, but in all of sports – has spent 16 years on the LPGA Tour, but her impact reaches far beyond the golf course.

“I think about that every single time – not only when I don’t want to practice or maybe I’m not ready to go out that day – but are these decisions I’m going to make today going to get me closer to my goals? Or is it going to get me further apart? That’s something I’ve used throughout my whole career and it has really, really helped me to maintain the discipline and the work ethic that you need”, Natalie explains.

She makes the most of life’s opportunities. From her extraordinary golf career to her personal business to charity work to television, Natalie has done it all, and she’s done it at the highest level.

She continues, “I was a talented athlete, but I wasn’t the most talented. I didn’t have the greatest genetic profile, I’m not 6-feet-tall, I don’t hit it 300 yards and carry it the way some players now are starting to – but I’ve always had a lot of discipline and I’ve always known and been able to evaluate where my talent is and be able to maximize what I can do and what I can’t do.”

Through all of her undertakings, Natalie has always been motivated by competition. She faces challenge with energy and enthusiasm. “You dream about it as a little girl – what it would be like to make a putt to win a tournament or play in front of 100,000 people and it’s way better than you could ever imagine”, she states.
