The Ultimate Motivational Golf Speech.
Some days, your driver just doesn’t hit the ball as far.
Your putts all end in lip outs, adding useless strokes to your score.
You lose 4 balls in the water hazard, including your lucky ball.
You accidentally hit someone’s son with an errant ball.
On those dark days, you start to wonder…
…Why do I play golf at all?
…Why do I practice 5 times a week?
…Why do I push myself through this rigorous training?
…Why don’t I just…quit golf?
When those dark thoughts arise, think about why you started.
The dreams you have.
The places you want to visit.
The perfect shots you want to hit.
The sub-70 scorecards you will score that others will marvel at.
The sweet smell of skill, perspiration, and victory all under your nose.
Wherever you are right now, get up right now!
Jump up and down off the ground for an entire minute!
Shake your arms and shake some sense into yourself!
Feel the power you possess in your body and your muscles!
Do NOT give up on your dreams and yourself!
As long as you still have a chance and are still resolved to win, GO WIN.
Shout at the top of your lungs:
NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES.
Feel the powerful emotions rushing through your veins as you speak your truth, your goals, your dreams.
Where do you want to be as a golfer this year?
And next year?
In 5 years?
In 10 years?
Visualize in your head your ideal future as a golfer.
Next, commit to making that vision a reality.
Start doing what you need to do to get where you want to be.
Every. Single. Day.
Commit to the plan.
Commit to your dreams.
No one cares if you reach your dreams or not, except for you.
No one will push you towards reaching your dreams but you.
Not your parents, your siblings, or your coach.
The only one who can truly drive yourself up to success…is yourself.
Commitment to working hard to reaching your goals.
Only YOU can force yourself to do what is required to win.
And that’s a good thing.
YOU have all the power.
No one else.
YOU have the same 24 hours in a day as everyone else on this Earth.
So, what are YOU going to do with them?
Sit on the couch eating chips and playing video games?
OR…running towards your dreams like your rear end is on fire?
Waking up early every day to hit a 100 golf balls in the morning?
Being 100% present and focused whenever you train?
Going over footage of yourself to find the flaws in your technique?
Fixing your flaws a little every practice session, day by day, stroke by stroke?
YOU have the POWER to do all of the above!
If you can just commit to the plan you have set out for yourself in your subconscious, you will WIN many battles.
After a few years, you will be AMAZED by how far you have come, and yet, fee; humble when you see the road left in front of you.
Work hard. Work smart.
Strive to be the best you can, every time you play or practice golf.
Whenever you feel bored, slap yourself and get up to go practice.
Go read about golf theory or review instructional videos.
Drive to the driving range or hit the golfing simulator.
There are simply not enough hours in the day for boredom to be justifiable.
If you truly, deeply want to reach your goals as a golfer, THEN GET UP AND GO WORK ON YOUR GAME.
Actively look for opportunities to get better at golf.
Challenge yourself by playing with better golfers.
You never know what little nuggets of information you will learn just by being around better golfers.
Commit to training hard and smart, and before you know it, those better golfers will be learning from you.
Light that fire deep in your belly, and don’t ever let it die out!
When people look in your eyes, they should see that flame burning deep within!
Your determination should feel palpable every time you walk in the room, if you commit to your dreams.
You will walk with a new spring in your step that will catch even seasoned golfers off guard!
Whenever you feel exhausted, think about WHY you started golfing!
If your reason is truly good and valuable to you, you WILL find a way to WIN!
You should aim to optimize everything you can about you as a golfer, including your resting methods!
Always be on the lookout for new improvements you can bring to your training and recovery processes.
Create your own training drills that go beyond what anyone else is willing to do!
Work even beyond the point when you have results no one is capable of replicating!
Constantly refine your craft to reach new heights.
Do not compare yourself to the people around you, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.
Constantly reinvent yourself to WIN MORE.
Build yourself into the IDEAL golfer.
Keep reaching new heights until you blast past the clouds high in the sky.
You will never know your limits until you hit them, so don’t you dare stop until you do.
You may be just one decision away from becoming the next big thing in golf.
The decision is simple.
Will you commit to consistently doing everything in your power to reach your dreams?
The choice is yours.
