Some Wednesday Motivation

It was a long day of travel, golf and sunburns…….ouch.  I’m sitting here exhausted more from having too much sun then anything else, watching Gilmore Girls of course and reflecting on what I felt on the course today.

This past August was my last competitive round, and I walked away from it at a loss.  Thankfully in the months to follow I was able to reflect and move forward, but today for a bit I felt like I went back in time.  Nerves in my hands, heaviness in the chest and apprehension.  Instead of fighting these feelings today like I did this past fall, I instead worked on acknowledging them and replacing with positives.

Today was also a reminder that golf will not define me.

With these thoughts in mind, it was fitting that Dr. Bhrett McCabe posted this:

“Your purpose in life isn’t determined or defined by what you do or a job description but rather by the nature you impact those around you.”

Tomorrow’s goals:  To play with gratitude and a light heart.  To embrace every feeling that I experience and appreciate that I get the opportunity to have that adrenaline flowing.  To look up at the beautiful blue sky and take deep breathes, one step at a time.

Until tomorrow……

-S

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
