You carry 14 clubs in your bag, and probably several more accumulating dust in your shed or garage. You are capable of hitting high and low shots, draws and fades, hooks and slices, half shots, three quarter shots and full shots. In order to do so, however, it is imperative you have a full range of empowering mental skills at your disposal so as to enable you to execute your chosen shot as and when it is required and in circumstances when it truly matters.
It is all too frequently the case that the way in which one hits shots upon the range is not reflected when out on the course, when it matters. Most people, including teaching and playing professionals alike, agree that 90% of golf is in the mind. You need as many mental skills as you have shots. And this is true of success in every other area of your life as well as in your game of golf.
I am a hypnotherapist and I am also a passionate golfer. This is why I decided to outline a whole set of mental skills for golfers and recorded a mental skills toolkit in the form of hypnosis cds and hypnosis downloads. This was back in 2006. The response was fantastic and I’m pleased to say that many great testimonials popped in via e-mail from golfers all over the world. This is what Paul Eales (European Tour Professional, BBC TV and Setanta TV Golf Reporter) had to say about the GolferWithin golf hypnosis cds:
“It took me many years of heart ache and hours of time hitting thousands and thousands of golf balls before I realized that, without the correct mindset, you can’t get anywhere near maximizing your potential. A library full of books on the sporting mind as well as time spent with accredited golf psychologists still didn’t quite get me into my ideal sporting performance state. Then I was asked to listen to some CD’s produced by Roseanna.
For the first time in my search the impact was not only massive but immediate. The well presented, ordered course covered “stuff” I had heard before. But this time just by listening to Roseanna and following the GolferWithin program, my state changed and allowed me to play without the negative, destructive self-talk that had plagued me from an early age. I would strongly advice any golfer who’s serious about improving their game to get involved in Roseanna’s CD presentation and see the immediate results. You can’t afford not to.”
Paul also suggested that it would be fantastic to create a similar set of mental skills hypnosis downloads for life in general, which is exactly what I did. Whether you are a golfer or not, there are many mental skills which you can learn which will make life more comfortable, more enjoyable and more successful. The game of golf simply highlights the effect of your thinking. If you think “don’t go in the trees” how often does it go in there? And on those days when you feel much focused and “in the zone” how many putts just seem to roll in without any effort at all? You can learn mental skills which will allow you to focus, to play “in the zone” at will. You can learn mental skills which will allow you to step back and relax, instead of getting tense.
There are many, many mental skills which can all be learned with the help of hypnosis cds or hypnosis downloads. It is amazing what you can do as you learn to harness the power of your own mind. You can retrain your mind to play great golf and also a great game of life.
You really can play the game of your dreams with the help of golf psychology, NLP and hypnosis downloads. Why not give yourself a head start and use your mind to make a difference. The fact is that great golfers know how to play the mental game; they have learned the necessary skills to be successful.
