How to develop STABLE confidence – Dr Raymond Prior

  • Why is your confidence so unstable?
  • Why do you have it TODAY and it is gone TOMORROW?
  • What would it be like to have a STABLE confidence that doesn’t come and go?

Today we welcome back onto the podcast one of the most popular guests over the past 12 months Dr Raymond Prior. Raymond is one of the most sought after mental performance coaches in the USA and he has recently published a wonderful new book called ‘Golf – Beneath the Surface’ which is a tremendous in depth study of what is REALLY happening in our brain when we are attempting to perform our best in sport.

As the title says it is not about the ‘surface level’ techniques often dished out to players but a study into what has been found by science to be truly beneficial in helping someone deal with the challenges of the game.

So much of what we have been taught about mental coaching turns out to be nothing more that myths and misconceptions.

In our conversation today we drill down and look at a number of those myths to get to the heart of what will REALLY make a difference.

 We look into:


  • The true nature of STABLE confidence. What it is and why it is so important to have it
  •  Why we suffer so much with insecurity in our game
  •  Unstable confidence: Why so many of us are looking for confidence in all the wrong places
  •  Why ACCEPTANCE is such a critical skill to understand
  •  What acceptance definitely is NOT
  •  How the yips ACTUALLY manifest in our mind and why just working on technique will NEVER solve the problem

Raymond’s new book is called:

Golf beneath the surface’ and is available on Amazon
