It's really all about using your mind in a different way.
Recently, I watched a video that challenged using the phrase "pre-shot routine." Instead, the video explained that using the term "commitment" is far more positive and can impact your mentality before every shot.
You've probably heard someone say at one point, "Oh, I'm stuck in the same 'ol routine." That's where negativity starts and then continues to fester.
It's funny how changing one word, one connotation, will change our mentality. Quite honestly, it will change how successful one can be. Like I said before, I'm a firm believer in positive thinking. These slight changes in how one thinks are really slight changes toward being more positive.
And, it's almost a guarantee that positivity fuels success. What are your thoughts like when you're on the course? How does it affect your game? And, will you begin to call it your "pre-shot commitment?"
