Thinking "I cannot, I must, I always ..." really don't mean anything on their own. Only if you keep thinking them (pay attention to them), they create your experience (results)
When you meditate, you focus on your breath and try to clear your mind. The point is to watch your thoughts come and go as clouds in the sky without getting attached to them. Behind our busy mind is a waste space of peace and love.
Golf is like a mediation. Your thoughts are just like the clouds in the sky no matter what they say. You do not have to push them away or generate them. Thought the practice of non-attachment you realize they come and go on their own. Unless you allow them, they have no impact on your game. You are free!
Thought: I don't like this hole
Result: Tight grip, fast swing
Outcome: poor shot
Though: I am a terrible golfer
Thought: I am a good golfer, I am a good golfer, I like this hole ... I really like this hole ... but I really hate it. But I should think positive ...
Result: tight grip, poor shot
Thought: I am a terrible golfer
Observation: there are different thoughts in my head
Result: focus on my swing
Outcome: depends on my practice
Observation: I am free to play my game
A study published in Frontiers of Human Neuroscience in 2018 confirmed “links between low breathing and parasympathetic activity related to emotional control and psychological well-being.” What their research showed is that when we consciously breathe, our “fight-or-flight” responses relax and we feel good.
Did you get a double bogie on the first two holes? Is your opponent annoying? Is it too hot or too cold? You can be free of all external circumstances when you realize that's exactly what they are: external circumstance. They are "out there" and they can affect you only to the point you let them. Seeing you have a choice is liberating. Pause, take a deep breath or two and ask yourself: "How can I see this differently? Do I have to react? Do I chose being happy or being right?"
