By the time we feel a surge of strong negative emotion (anger, anxiety, nervousness, fear), we’ve already allowed an unwanted thought stream to continue for way too long. We’ve piled up story after unhappy story to a point where our chances of quickly stopping the momentum and power of its strong emotional steam is slim at best (much like trying to stop a train that is racing out of control at 500 miles per hour dead in its tracks).  As obvious as it seems, the best way to control the energy of any negative thought stream is long before the momentum grabs hold and the emotion is felt. Our priority, then, before we hit any shot is to get into a positive state of mind, at which time we give ourselves the best opportunity to sustain the speed of the engine and move it mindfully along the tracks.

Most golfers are looking for different skills to “do” as they improve through practice and play.  We are, after all, taught that effort and action are where the real work takes place.  What we’re saying that is profoundly different is that we create a mind state of “being” first.  It’s not that we don’t take action, but we don’t jump into the action until we are first in a good state of mind. Our “how-we-be” (emotions) become the foundational building block of any action we take, and our doings efficiently and effortlessly orchestrate an inspired level of performance that is beyond compare.

Most of us think the reason we believe that something is true is because we have seen its evidence time and again. In reality, the only reason something appears for our viewing pleasure is because we have convinced ourselves of its validity and truth.  Even the golf shot that shows up “randomly” is not as mysterious as we have made it out to be.  Instead, each shot is a physical expression of what we have been consciously or unconsciously energizing and thinking about. What we see is what we first believe and not the other way around.
