MESSAGE #445 HOW TO STOP PERFORMANCE KILLING THOUGHTS…
Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Robert Greene.
You can make or break a performance by the thoughts that arise in your mind. The winners and losers feel the same feelings but they take different action. Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter, and Roger Federer all get negative, so it’s alright if you do. But it’s what they do when those thoughts arise that make the difference.
Here’s a tip to stop those performance killing thoughts from the book, “Good to GREAT GOLF,” by Dr. Rob Gilbert and John Sikes, Jr…
The Rubber Band – Put an elastic band on your wrist, and every time you become aware of a negative thought, snap the band against your wrist. The sudden quick pain will “snap you out” of the negativity and remind you to get your focus back on track.
You’ll never totally get rid of negative feelings, just make sure you accept those feelings, and then “snap” out of it.
Thanks for reading.
