Golf's Mental Game - A Journey To Confidence

What would you say is the most important aspect in becoming a better player? How can you get complete fulfillment from the game? What aspect of this sport is the key ingredient to having the most fun?
Some people say that patience is the answer. Others point out that practice & repetition is the key to success in golf. And it is.
Some players even think that having the right golf clubs is the "magic potion."
A. Great Answers...
Confidence. A generally good feeling about the strength of your abilities can be a priceless asset.
Having confidence in yourself is important in golf & practically everything else too. How you feel about yourself will carry over into the quality of your game & elsewhere. Thousands of golfers have lowered their scores & increased their relative happiness by just reassessing how they view themselves.
B. Performance
Similarly, there is also "performance-oriented" confidence which is based more upon the specific increases in your golf game itself.
If you have very little confidence in your abilities, then you will not perform optimally. Practice your golfing skills diligently & you will develop your performance confidence as a result.
C. True Confidence
Your confidence levels can be adjusted & worked on step-by-step. Larger personal issues & improving your self image can take as little as a week or as long as a lifetime...
Low self-esteem levels can be layers deep & uncovering them far outweighs the scope of this article. However, in terms of performance confidence, there are definitely some common ideas which all of us can benefit from.
The most important thing to remember is that golf does not define your life. The skills needed to be a scratch golfer develop gradually.
If you think you will only be happy when you become "better" at playing golf, then happiness will elude you. You will chase this vague goal for years....& how will you know when you get there?
True joy comes from having fun & accepting the fact that golf is a lifelong journey, not a destination.
