Self Compassion And Acceptance
You are on the 12th hole and playing and scoring great. You have high levels of expectation for your final score. You have a 2-1/2 foot putt for birdie – and you miss it. BANG – EVERYTHING CHANGES. You Dummy. And there goes your great round up in smoke.
My friend, Dr. Noa Kageyama – The Bulletproof Musician – wrote one of his best ever posts this week, a must read. Here is the link to the post…
All I can say is, if you are looking to play better and more enjoyable golf – read this post and the links. There is information in it for golfers, for coaches, for parents.
Here are a few things you can do on the golf course to apply the principles discussed in Noa’s post…
- Perhaps start where the golf drama is the highest – on the putting green. Experiment with Accepting Every Putting Result No Matter What It Is. Then after you putt, rate your degree of acceptance on a 1 to 10 scale – 1 is very low acceptance, 10 is very high acceptance.
- If you start seeing value to your game in Accepting Putting Results – take it to your Entire Game. Have an objective of Accepting Every Result. And then after the shot Rate The Shot.
Compare how you play without Self Compassion to how you play when you Accept All Or Many Of Your Results. You might like the change!!
If you did not read my June 2019 Newsletter (published June 15) – here is The Link. It includes some great Trackman University videos, a Brad Faxon putting drill worth using in your practice, and some discussion on “Variability and Compensations” in your golf game.
And finally it is Good To Be Back! My prostate removal surgery went very well and so has the recovery. I appreciate the good wishes and prayers from many of you. Now I am ready to get back to true custom club fitting, putting instruction and coaching, and creating great web site content to help golfers Shoot Lower Scores!
