During the webinar we discussed the key concept of ‘Separating SELF from CRAFT’ How can we develop the capability to create some space between our capability as a golfer and our self image as a human being How being ‘concerned’ about our value as a human is tied to our evolutionary development The early messages we receive as youngsters from important people around us and how this can weave into our identity The need to develop a ‘SAFE PLACE’ to play from How our performance can become a THREAT to our identity How this leads to unstable confidence Why your relationship to the game can become so toxic The necessity to ask yourself the question ‘Why do I play golf?’ Not to take your initial answer but to look deeper to what is REALLY important to you What are your INTRINSIC and SELF DIRECTED values to play the game? Challenging your core BELIEFS to see if they REALLY work for you The fragility of EXTRINSIC values and why you can never ‘get enough’ The need to JOURNAL your experiences and why that is so important What am I committed to TODAY? Think about WHY you play golf WHEN you play golf Being INTENTIONAL and on purpose This is a wonderful session with Raymond and Karl as they go into some real detail as to how to get the very best from your game Take ACTION and get yourself a copy of the stable confidence program BUILDING STABLE CONFIDENCE – THE NEW PROGRAM To get your copy of the brand new program with Raymond Prior and Karl Morris It will truly make a BIG difference to your development  Link to buy: Building Stable Confidence

How Being Mindless affects EVERYTHING we do – Dr Ellen Langer #303
 Today on the Brain Booster we are joined by an extraordinarily special guest Dr Ellen Langer Dr Langer has been one of the most influential people in the world of psychology over the past 40 years She was the first female tenured professor in psychology at Harvard Has written numerous books She has conducted so many incredible experiments, most notably the ‘counterclockwise’ experiment where she had older men go into a ‘pod’ that took them back to their younger selves. The results as we find out today were extraordinary She has been studying Mindfulness for the past 35 years and makes clear that mindfulness is NOT meditation Mindfulness is being aware of what is ACTUALLY happening as opposed to what we think is happening based on our auto pilot responses Why we need to realise that we DON’T know How our assumptions keep constantly tricking us How research only gives us PROBABILITIES not absolutes The ‘counterclockwise’ study and the amazing possibilities that open up Is ageing a direct consequence of our beliefs surrounding what we believe SHOULD be happening? Can we think ourselves WELL? Can we think ourselves SICK?

The Lost Art of Golf 2 day school at Archerfield Links with Karl Morris and Gary Nicol  The ULTIMATE interactive learning experience at the ULTIMATE location Jim has been on the show a number of times and there has always been a wonderful response to his words of wisdom. He has an incredible background in his coaching development over many years looking into all areas of the Mind Body connection Become a Mind Factor Coach - Early Bird Offer 2024 Mind Factor Certification Course  We discussed in great detail perhaps the most overlooked opportunity to improve your game. The 90% of golf that isn’t golf!! We spend so much of our golfing time NOT playing golf and yet how many golfers really look into what is happening during this time and HOW they can maximise their experience? I have long contended that the quality of what you do in the 90% will have a DIRECT influence on what you do when it comes to play your shots. We discussed: The value of being EXTERNAL in between shots Making a conscious decision to connect with the beauty of the golf course Connecting and coming to your SENSES The connection with the ‘Power of NOW’ Losing your absorption in your own SELF Connecting with other people and how this can cross over into your life Your behaviour in between shots and how this becomes totally unconscious The pace of you walk and the ‘Mind Body’ connection The danger of focusing too much on OUTCOMES How tuning into your external world helps you LISTEN to the golf course. Being attuned to your ENVIRONMENT and then being able to RESPOND to that environment The value of good conversation and being WIDE with your focus The feeling of ‘lightness’ and how that can help you get into the shot Moe Norman and ‘positive indifference’ Random reinforcement syndrome – what is it and why do we fall into its trap It is such a pleasure to speak to Jim He has such a wonderful INTENTION to help golfers You can only benefit from is wonderful wisdom.

The FOUR ‘types’ of coaching and what is MOST effective – Fred Shoemaker #284
Today we are joined on the Brain Booster by the biggest influence in my coaching career Fred Shoemaker. Download Mind Caddie for hundreds of short audio lessons and exercises produced by Karl and start improving your mental game the same way as six major champions: https://mindcaddie.onelink.me/7xjx/znldwgbi  I first went out to Fred’s school in Carmel Valley, California over 25 years ago. The experience had a deep and lasting impression on me and opened up a whole new world of enquiry and thought about the coaching process. Fred has continued to influence many coaches and players with his ability to look at the game in a way that really gets you to think about what the game truly MEANS to you What is your PURPOSE for playing the game? What is really important to you about the experience? In today’s show amongst many topics we managed to really drill down into the FOUR types of coaching. The ‘DO’ instruction. The model for 90% of todays golf coaching whereby a teacher ‘tells’ you what to do in your swing based on his or her belief about how the golf swing SHOULD function The ‘awareness’ instruction which is much more of a coaching based approach where a coach simply asks you to pay attention to what is ACTUALLY happening in your experience of swinging a club. This leads to a much stronger learning experience. EXCLUSIVE FOR CERTIFIED MIND COACHES ONLY!! You have the skills. Now learn how to apply them. Take your skills to the next level and become a MASTER MIND FACTOR COACH. 2 days interactive and immersive learning. 21 and 22 January 2024 in Central Manchester themindfactor.net/masters-course.    Capitalise on the Early Bird rate on offer!!  Limited places. The BE instruction This is where the coach helps you explore the PERSON you are when you swing the golf club. Are you going to play as a courageous golfer perhaps? At the heart of this instruction is your own COMMITMENT The fourth type of instruction is to challenge HOW the world ‘occurs’ to you. If the golf course occurs to you as a place of threat then no amount of the first two types of instruction will have much effect. To understand how the world is occurring to you and the CHOICE you have in creating that narrative   This session is not for the faint hearted. It is challenging It will really make you consider your approach to the game It is a wonderful conversation with a very special coach   To find out more about Fred Shoemaker go to www.extraordinarygolf.com   To find out more about Karl Morris and the Mind Factor go to www.themindfactor.com

Why and how Moe was so misunderstood Onto Tim’s coaching career Tim’s observation of the rampant narcissism in the golfing world today and how we can all become lost in the story of ‘I will be happy WHEN’ How we are constantly being fed the story that we are ‘BROKEN’ How we could access our own innate talent How our Ego can hijack the coaching process What Tim learned about coaching from Lou Reed Tim O’Connor is a golf coach, award-winning writer, and podcaster living in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Tim came into coaching following a career as a music critic and then a golf writer during which he covered the major tours and wrote four books including The Feeling of Greatness: The Moe Norman Story, the biography of the mysterious Canadian regarded as the best ball-striker who ever lived. Tim is in the Ontario Golf Hall of Fame as a writer. After being involved for 20 years in men’s work with the ManKind Project, Tim moved into coaching golfers, including the University of Guelph men’s and women’s golf team.

Am I going to improve? – It DEPENDS – Michael Hebron #282
Today on the brain booster we are joined by coaching legend Michael Hebron. Michael has just written a wonderful book with Stephen Yazulla titled ‘It Depends’ Download Mind Caddie for hundreds of short audio lessons and exercises produced by Karl and start improving your mental game the same way as six major champions: https://urlgeni.us/mindcaddie The book is all about learning and what is required to get the best out of your lessons or your training. It is an amazing piece of work with some great insights, many of which are counterintuitive. It also reinforces what we have said on the Brain Booster many times about the need to honour your individuality. The book is called: ‘It Depends’ As we discussed during our time together: The need for ‘unintended outcomes’ The brain doesn’t learn without reference points Swing too fast, swing too slow so you can FIND what is the ideal timing Why you need to understand the rules of the CLUB The need to understand RHYTHM and TIMING The rhythm of ONE Understand how the swinging of the club creates motion not the other way around Take away the word better. The brain doesn’t learn from better, it learns much more from DIFFERENT The need to be OBJECTIVE about outcomes as opposed to emotional evaluation The need to be able to ADJUST to what is going on The difference between TEACHING environments and LEARNING environments The swing model is the GOLF COURSE   A truly wonderful conversation with one of the most influential coaches of the past 100 years. A man who has dedicated his life to helping students and coaches alike how to LEARN better   To find out more about Michael and his work go to https://www.michaelhebron.com/#home   To find out more about Karl Morris and the Mind Factor go to www.themindfactor.com

How Jon has learned to have a different relationship with the game and his ability to deal better with the inevitable chaos golf often throws at us It is this relationship to unpredictable outcomes which for me is the heart of an effective mental game strategy We had a really wide ranging conversation covering multiple topics such as: Self learning and what it actually looks and feels like How to develop more clubface awareness Why giving yourself permission to fail in practice is so important Expectation management and why it has such a big impact on your mental game Matching skill level with practical expectation The ability to reframe outcomes to stay more level mentally The TWO THIRDS rule and how it can change your perception of the game How to genuinely enjoy the game more A really great conversation with a deep thinker about the game and someone who is having a BIG impact on how people golfers approach getting better at the game.

Be more connected to what it is trying to tell you Creating an ‘upward spiral’ of positive emotions Gratitude, appreciation and Joy Reducing stress inducing ‘beta’ waves and increasing ‘alpha’ wave frequency to be able to ACCESS your skills The ‘Flow’ state and how to access it more often The need to challenge yourself at just the RIGHT level Why we need to be aware of how much our consciousness is being ‘hijacked’ The importance of the FIRST HOUR of the day   A really incredible session with Dawson Church and all of his incredible research around human potential and performance.
