Adjust your Sail

I heard a lovely quote this week on the radio "You can't change the wind, but you can adjust your sail". The quote struck a chord with me and throughout the day I kept finding myself revisiting the words and thought it would make a great blog. As I mulled over the wise words, I began to consider the changes my readers are trying to make and two regular themes appeared;

  • Looking for a way to play better golf

  • Trying to find a cure to resolve an issue/challenge

Whichever camp you sit in, I'm pretty confident you will have tried either traditional technical coaching with your local professional, or purchased new equipment after listening to the marketing promises to improve your game. I appreciate its' good practice to have a lesson with your PGA professional to refresh your technical skills and to remove bad habits, we can all fall foul to poor set-up, misalignment or incorrect grip positions. However, if you find you're struggling to play well in competition or have issues with anxiety, lack of focus or find your game has plateaued and not improved, then technical coaching or new equipment will not give you the results you're looking for.  

If you would like to

  • Develop a winning mindset that gives you confidence to perform at your best consistently and without question

  • Be able to focus with clarity; to "enter the zone" and not become distracted

  • Manage stress and pressure to allow you to perform without doubt, fear or anxiety

  • Build resilience and embrace failure as part of the learning to channel into your development

Then get in touch today and book a session from the comfort of your armchair, to discover the secrets to improved performance. Adjust your sail, develop your mental toughness to unlock your true potential.
