LEARNING   CENTER

I was fortunate to learn how to play and teach golf at a very high level with the help of my golf mentor, Rod Lidenberg.  Mr. Lidenberg has over 40 years of experience teaching students and is currently a Golf Magazine Top 100 Instuctor.  This explanation of the Process of Change was created by Rod Lidenberg.

 

THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

7 Basic Truths

THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

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. 

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.  

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.  

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 .

"THE IMPORTANT THING IS THIS:  TO BE ABLE AT ANY MOMENT TO SACRIFICE WHAT WE ARE FOR WHAT WE COULD BECOME."
