golfers-waterI was listening to a business expert talk the other day. He made an interesting observation about being successful in business. His message definitely relates to learning golf and touches on a human trait that stagnates performance. Here’s what he said.

When you find something that works in your business keep doing it. I have found though that humans let ego and self-doubt get in the way. Just when they have an opportunity to take a giant step – they change. They stop doing what works or credit the success to something else. This is crazy and makes no sense.

I received an email over the weekend. The author was interested to know when he could forget about the automatic process. I know his question was made in good faith and was harmless enough, but it is a common mindset that needs comment.

I for one will never change my approach. I have tried every golf tip, quick-fix and had too many lessons to remember. The golf merry-go-round never worked for me and I’m so glad that I’m off it. Automatic golf has transformed my game. It has given me;

  • A consistent game that still continues to improve
  • A level of mastery I never thought I could achieve
  • A sense of confidence that makes golf more fun
  • A strategy to deal with pressure
  • Removed the doubt and confusion

So my best advice for anyone looking to play automatically? It is a continual process. You will never be good enough to stop doing it. So don’t.

As I write I’m reminded of a comment I heard from a golf pro. The old pro was teaching a stubborn client. The client was resisting everything the teacher was giving him and probably in a vein of frustration the pro said,

You are not special. Just do the bloody drill!

We’d all like to think we’re special and in our own way we all probably are. But when it comes to hitting a little white ball at high speed, the absolute best and easiest way is with a persistent automatic golf swing. Don’t change and please stop looking for another solution. Trusting your automatic game is all you’ll ever need for real success.
