If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. – Peace Pilgrim
It’s not unusual for golfers to step into a shot thinking about where they DON’T want the ball to go. Our minds are the most important thing we have while playing the game. So if we think, don’t hit it out of bounds,” the only thing your subconscious hears is “hit it out of bounds.” To avoid this problem, our focus should be on the outcome we WANT instead of the one we don’t. Confident, positive thoughts can and will (with practice and patience) lead to positive results. Have fun!
