THE PROCESS OF CHANGE
7 BASIC TRUTHS
FIRST TRUTH – to improve you must EMBRACE THE PROCESS OF CHANGE. This is the only way your game evolves to a higher level.
SECOND TRUTH – often while in the process of change the immediate is temporarily worse. As this occurs it essential to stay focused on the process and patiently wait for the outcome to improve.
THIRD TRUTH – change takes place best when the golfer takes a non-judgmental approach to the immediate outcome and simply EXPERIENCES the new reality.
FOURTH TRUTH – even though a golfer may not be satisfied with some aspect of their current game, they have familiarity with it. And this familiarity translates to a level of comfort both from a physical and psychological standpoint.
FIFTH TRUTH – the desire for uninterrupted comfort is a significant barrier to change and ultimate improvement. A golfer must allow themselves to be uncomfortable, at least on a temporary basis, so that real change can take place.
SIXTH TRUTH – change represents the unknown. And some golfers view the unknown with a sense of apprehension. It is important to understand that in reality the unknown represents an opportunity to break from the past and move forward.
SEVENTH TRUTH – change is a process that never stops. The best athletes in any sport are always striving to reach the next level. They know staying in place is impossible .
