If you ever have anxiety about something, you have faulty beliefs about it.
Here's one of the most fundamental and powerful Mental Toughness disciplines or exercises that you can use to upgrade your state when you're feeling low...
Before you engage in any important event or performance, take a few moments and intentionally put yourself into a super solid state of mind. Get fired up. Get relaxed. Get focused. Get certain. Get into your expert self.
Nowhere reminds me that there's really nowhere to go. There's nowhere to get to. There's nowhere that I should be. I'm already there.
There's nowhere you need to be other than exactly where you are right now. Nowhere could be better than where you are in this moment.
There's one very specific moment that is SO critical to success in the game of golf. It's the moment when the players decide what shot to play.
Golfers, even at the highest levels, often do not decide on the shot they are going to execute...
We are capable of existing in the decision state regardless of the fact that there are variables beyond our control.
What if life was one big lucid dream? And for most of us the dream was one of those dreams where you need to run but for some reason, you can't. And even though you know you're dreaming - if even only on the faintest of levels - you still can't get yourself to run. And it sucks.
Forget running. Why don't we just fly?!
I've established that we create all of our psychological or emotional STATES with our thinking, and that one of the most powerful states that we can create for performance is the ALL IN state - which is infinitely committed.
