As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.
– German Physicist Max Planck
If the mind is the matrix of all matter (stuff) as Max Planck suggests, then just imagine for a moment the possibilities of that statement for you. If you could change how you represent any golf experience to yourself, then you could literally change ANY aspect of your golf performance…WOW!
Instead of creating the same level of reality over and over, (eg. slice into the trees on the 15th) you can change the direction of your intention (mental force) and create an entirely different outcome. So instead of generating the same old negative thoughts about a particular aspect of your game, you simply focus your attention on what you want SPECIFICALLY, and practice it CONSISTENTLY, and you WILL generate a new and better reality for yourself.
So the number one key to golf confidence is to focus specifically and practice consistently. This means you decide exactly what you want to achieve with your game and then rehearse the outcome you desire over and over consciously. Eventually (well, it shouldn’t take you that long) your unconscious mind will accept the command and help you to generate the results you are striving for.
We’ll continue to explore this concept in my next post.
