Welcome to a beautiful, sunny, Sunday evening in St. Louis.
Today, we’re going in the “wrong” direction.
You know I am all about POSITIVE ACTION, right?
Basically, focusing on the actions that will move the needle closer to your golf and fitness goals.
Well, today I am going to NEGATIVE TOWN.
It’s time to take inventory of the things that are getting in your way – the hurdles between you and your vision of success.
These hurdles drain your energy…resources…confidence…
And turn the journey from where you are NOW to where you want to BE into an unnecessarily difficult slog.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
Let’s say you have a goal of longer drives (who doesn’t?).
What are you doing NOW that gets in the way of making that happen?
Is it a lack of mobility? Not enough strength? You keep getting injured?
If you’re serious about reaching success, it is time to start dealing with those obstacles.
Now, I do NOT recommend cutting out every obstacle at once.
But it’s important to acknowledge them – because it takes their power away.
If you start by targeting those obstacles one by one, you’ll have a better chance of long-term success.
Before you know it…those OBSTACLES will become OPPORTUNITIES.
- If distance is your goal, but you also have a habit of buying the latest greatest driver: what if you put $500 toward your gym membership?
- If your goal is to get more fit, but aren’t sure you have enough time: what if you committed to just 20 minutes per day?
DO THIS: Write down ALL of the obstacles standing between you and your vision of success.
These can even include mindset obstacles like thinking your goal is “too big” or the feeling that you’re somehow “not worthy.”
THEN: identify which obstacles are the BIGGEST hurdles between you and your goal – and also which obstacles are the EASIEST for you to tear down.
TAKE ACTION: Target these obstacles ONE AT A TIME…alternating an EASY hurdle with a BIG one!
Rather than trying to go cold turkey on all of your obstacles at once, find a REPLACEMENT or something you can do instead (like spending your $ at the gym instead of the next shiny object).
And we’re here to help.
