Working hard on your game but not seeing the results?
That’s quite alright actually.
You’ve decided to find out why.
And good on you.
The reason might be because you haven’t got a club what type of golfer you want to be.
Let me explain why you need to develop a mantra statement for your game.
Define Your Purpose
On Saturday I talked about the need for you to have a definite purpose in golf.
A definite purpose is like a goal. But it’s more of a long time vision for the ultimate golfer you want to be.
A mantra statement is a short reinforcement statement for your definite purpose. It’s used to positively affirm your definite purpose.
So when you develop your mantra statement, remeber it and recite it daily out loud before bed with your eyes closed. While you’re reciting it be sure to visualize the exact golfer you want to be.
For those who are not sure what to write, here’s my mantra statement below:
“I know that I have the ability to achieve my definite purpose in golf for the coming year, therefore I demand of myself persistent, aggressive and continous action towards it’s attainment.
It’s too easy to get frustatrated in this game and lose self belief.
And that’s the reason you need to stay positive by repeating your mantra statement daily. You need to the keep the mojo.
Losing The Mojo
For the last few years I have been struggling with my own game. I’ve been trying to become more consistent.
During this time my mental game has sucked. I’ve read a couple of different books on the subject. But they haven’t really helped in the long run.
Have you read books on the mental game?
They can work in the short term. However I’ve heard from a few different golfers they play well for a bit. But then the mojo wears off.
The last thing I want for you is to be like Austin Powers when he runs out of mojo!
Why do you lose the mojo?
Because it’s easy to forget the stuff you learn and fall back into your old habits. Then you lose the self belief.
And that’s all the reason for creating a definite purpose and mantra statement.
The same goes for lessons.
How many times have you taken a lesson and hit it great on the range but have a hard time transferring it to the course?
In today’s fast paced society it’s all about having and wanting things now. When it comes to your golf game, you have to stay patient, apply the changes, work hard doing so and believe.
Reading my blog posts or any other articles on game improvement will simply not do it. They’re part of the equation.
But you need to trust yourself and believe.
Your new mantra statement will help you believe.
