Something I’ve learned over the years:
There is no bigger waste of time than trying to “figure it out on your own.”
For one, there’s no such thing.
Any books you read, or online resources you look at were made by someone else, which by definition means you’re no longer doing it “on your own.”
The phrase is full of ego.
Of a belief that by not receiving help from others, you are somehow better, more worthy––that struggling somehow makes the whole journey better.
You know what makes it better?
Lots of success––and fast.
Which is why I threw away the whole need to “do it myself” nonsense many years ago and now make it a point to always seek out the guidance of people who are experts in whatever it is that
I’m trying to accomplish.
We don’t learn by running around the same circle over and over.
We learn from feedback.
Feedback from our environment and feedback from others is what slices through the endless loop of self-sabotage and slow growth. It’s what allows us to quickly wake up and see what we’ve been doing wrong, and how we can fix it.
So, if your game needs improvement, the best thing to do is hire a technical coach.
And if your mental game is what’s holding you back, the fastest way through is to find people who can help you with that.
If your problem is on the mental side, I’d recommend checking out the program Nick Howard and
I are running starting this Thursday. It’s designed for mid-stakes players and higher who want to get the type of feedback that will transform their mindset and performance in a very short time.
Nick and I hold nothing back, and will tell you exactly what you need to hear, so you can have a clear idea of what to do to get where you want to go.
We’ve got two spots available, and we start in a few days.
