Archived Newsletters - THE SECRET FOR SUCCESS IS BELIEVING IN YOURSELF :
Newsletter February 2014
On Sunday, February 2nd in New Jersey, the world watched the Seattle Seahawks football team dominate the Denver Broncos 43-8 to decisively win the XLVIII Super Bowl and the coveted Lombardi Trophy.
What made the difference in the lopsided victory?
Perhaps it was the belief of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his team. Wilson felt responsible to work hard enough to make it happen. "He refuses to fail. He refuses to let himself fail. And he's going to refuse to let anyone else around him allow that to happen," said Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Anyone watching the game saw the Seahawks team operating at 100% effort until the last second.
Wilson knew in his heart that he could win the Super Bowl. Growing up his father instilled confidence in Russell by telling him repeatedly, "Why not you?"
On a deep level of feeling, most golfers believe that they don't deserve to be the winner. They will point to golfers who are better than they are. In order to play at your best, you need to believe in yourself and in your golf abilities. Believing in yourself is all about focusing on your strengths and on what you do well instead of focusing on what isn't working.
What you can conceive and believe, you can achieve
Self-esteem or self-confidence is having full trust and reliance in yourself. When you have a high level of self esteem you will be confident, motivated, happy and have a positive attitude to succeed.
Low self-esteem will keep you from taking chances. Low self-esteem is reinforced by thinking negatively, criticizing your performance, or by listening to others who criticize you.
Confidence comes from within. If you are confident, you will have the mental strength to face new challenges. On the golf course everything is new. Every day the golf course and each shot is a new experience to challenge you.
If you don't believe in yourself and your abilities, who will?
