Manage Your Self Doubt on the Golf Course

Last time, I wrote  about how self-doubt can erode confidence if left to run wild in your mind.

Today, you'll learn how to stabilize confidence by managing this top confidence killer...

sunset-golferIf you uncovered your top doubts using the tip from last week, you want to take the next step today...

How to manage these doubts and banish them from your mind. It's a simple concept called cognitive reframing. This simply mean viewing your golf game in a different light and finding an alternative way of viewing situations.

Follow these three steps for reframing doubts:

1. Think back to a recent round when you doubted your ability. List the self-doubt you had at the time.

2. State each doubt above as if you are thinking out loud. Here's an example:

Doubt: "I'm unsure if I'll putt well today because the greens are do fast. I often struggle on fast greens."

3. Reframe and/or challenge each statement. Turn each doubt into a statement of confidence:

Reframe: "I've worked hard on my putting for years. I had great putting rounds in the past. I can putt well on any putting surface."

Here's an advanced strategy:

You'll want to apply this strategy to your practice and rounds to make it take hold:

When you first notice that you are doubting your ability, use this reframing strategy to challenge the doubt and embrace confident self-talk.

This mental game strategy will help you stabilize your confidence by reducing the amount of time you allow doubts to run unchecked in your mind!

Are nerves ruining your first tee shot?

Are nerves ruining your first tee shot?

I don't know WHAT it is about that first tee shot!

Nerves? Expectation? People Watching? Excitement? Dread?

You know what it's like - despite your best efforts, the thoughts still crowd your mind:

Will you perform at your best?

Will you make a mess of your first shot?

Will you duff your drive into the bushes?

Never mind who is watching.

Do you go for the driver or play it safe with a smaller wood or iron?

Prepare your brain to tee off perfectly

The trouble is, no matter how many hours you spend on the driving range, it doesn't prepare your mind for the pressure of that first shot. And that's where mental preparation comes in.

Prepare your brain to tee off perfectly

The trouble is, no matter how many hours you spend on the driving range, it doesn't prepare your mind for the pressure of that first shot. And that's where mental preparation comes in.

To perform at your best you need to relax and focus completely on the shot. To do this consistently you need to train your brain so 'being in the zone', becomes your instinctive response to teeing off. This is why we have developed this 'Tee off with confidence' golf hypnotic download.

The best golfers reliably access an intense yet relaxed state of mind that has them focusing on what they are doing not how they are doing it.

Use 'Tee of with confidence' a few times before your next round and you'll notice the difference immediately. The first tee will change from something to be endured into an enjoyable - even fun - experience.

Download your 'tee off with confidence' hypnotic download today and really enjoy yourself the next time you step onto the first tee.
