You Never Know a Man Until You See Him Lose
I picked up this quote in reference to Mark Anthony. It is quite apt when applied to the human race in general. It is easy to have a happy and sunny disposition when you are winning, or when things are going your way. Your capacity to cope is put under a little more pressure when the tide turns and it looks as if you may be the loser.
How do you respond then? Do you steel yourself and allow your situation to fire you up and dig deep into your resources of mental strength and imagination? Or do you allow your shoulders to slump as all energy seems to dissipate and your heart becomes set upon turning tail and running home? Or do you get angry at the unfairness of the hand that you have been dealt? Perhaps you just smile, laugh or shrug in a reflection of the acceptance that “that’s life”.
I always say that golf is a game which teaches you, or at least highlights, many lessons which are required in life. The way in which you play golf more often than not reflects the way in which you deal with circumstances in life in general. As you learn mastery over various aspects of this wonderful game, you also gain mastery over similar situations in life.
You learn a lot about a person when you play a round of golf with them. Their true character is revealed very clearly in just a few short hours. You will observe whether that person is analytical and systematic or whether they take a more random approach to their game. You will see the speed at which they go about their life. You’ll see how they cope with frustration, adversity or failure. Golf tells you a great deal about a person, far more than most of us imagine.
If you would like, you can use golf as a way in which to teach yourself mental mastery which stands you in good stead for life in general. Golf provides you with immediate feedback as to how well you are progressing, where many other situations do not do this so readily. You can clearly see the effect of your mental focus in golf in where the ball goes, or not, as the case may be. With the right golf mind training you can learn to focus clearly and to clear your mind of distractions.
Golf hypnosis is a very powerful tool in that you learn how to use both your conscious and subconscious mind to achieve the results which you deserve. If you are in two minds about what you are doing with your golf club, the golf ball will surely reflect this state of affairs. But with golf hypnosis you can align your conscious and subconscious mind, and also your logical thoughts with your emotions and your imagination. Thus golf hypnosis is a very powerful way in which you can take control of your mind and your game of golf.
This mental mastery can then be applied to every area of your life to create success and happiness.
