We got the chance in our time together to look at the power of PERSPECTIVE

How a slight shift in perspective can have a BIG effect on your game

Joe described the humbling experience recently of hosting mindfulness sessions for people actually living in the Ukraine and the way they are manging to handle their lives in the most horrendous of conditions.

  • How much do we take for granted in our own lives?
  • In what way does this cross over to our golf?
  • The dramatic impact of self talk
  • Changing the definition of a ‘good shot’
  • Why the perception of what makes a ‘good day’ can make us so unhappy
  • What perspective do we have on poor shots?
  • How do we view the opportunity to play?
  • What about the golf course itself?

Do we view the course as an invitation to experience the possibility of expressing our skills or do we see the course as being something of a ‘war zone’ where are own sense of self is brought into question?

  • How does the golf course want to RECEIVE your shots?
  • The ‘don’t know’ mindset
  • Be CURIOIUS instead of afraid
  • The Zen of better putting
  • How you can make EVERY putt
  • Why it is so important to ‘begin with the end in mind’
  • The ultimate ATTITUDE to bring to your putting
  • ‘Hit it where the putter is pointing’Love the way the ball leaves the putter
  • LEARNING from every putt
  • A really tremendous conversation with a legendary performance coach. You will want to listen to this over and over again
