Get Your Mind Thinking Right!


We can do what we first believe in our minds.  If you truly want to get better at golf, or anything, you must first convince the mind to let you do it.

Golf shots become a match to what we first believe.  If our beliefs surround optimism and hope, golf shots show up that we begin to like.  If our beliefs are negative and self-defeating, we begin to sabotage ourselves, resulting in shots that we don’t like but first believed we were going to make.  An example of this is when we have a shot that needs to be performed correctly to avoid a watery grave.  If you think water, the ball will end up in the drink every time.  I cannot emphasis the importance of seeing the landing area and never acknowledging the water at anytime.  As I have said in other posts, what you think about as a target becomes the target, whether or not you think they are positive thoughts. “Come on don’t hit it in the water,” is a  common thought on a golf course, but the “target” being referenced is the water so… “Kerplunk” happens 90% of the time.   Try as we may to be positive, the target must be the subject of all thoughts.  So to change our golf shots to improve our games, our internal thoughts are the secret to changing what results we see.  “Don’t let the mind acknowledge that the water is even there”!
