“Create Your Future With Your Intention*
Based on your present conscious intentions, you determine what your future will be. You have the ability to create whatever you wish to experience. When you choose your intention, you have started the creative process to make it happen. It is the simple process of focusing your attention on what you want by letting go of the energies of what you do not want. If unwanted thoughts come to mind, choose to change them to what you do desire. Make choices for your highest good. Clear your mind by removing fear and limiting thoughts about yourself and your abilities.
When you give 100% intention and attention to creating a golf shot, the opportunity is realized. It is important to be clear about your intention so the energy attracted to it will be positive and for your highest good of self-realization. When you let go of unwanted energies like fear and anger, and replace them with joy and love, you have created a clear positive intention that manifests what you desire.
The Principle of Intention
The principle of intention shows us that the results aren’t the problem. Become aware of your intention and you can create a different outcome. This means doing only those things which originate from the truth of who you are. Whatever your situation is right now, you have played a major role in setting it up. It is you who have created your circumstances. With every experience you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice. And beneath each of those thoughts and choices lies your deepest intention.
What is your real intention?
Your intention and desire can create a better life and a better golf game. And when you don’t examine your intention, you often end up with consequences that block your progress. If you change your intentions, you create different consequences. When you make choices that honor who you are and you begin believing in the greatest version of yourself, you’ll get exactly what your Creator intended for you—the chance to reach your greatest potential.
When you were learning the mechanics of the golf swing, motor skill by motor skill, you had to think about how to do it. Now is the time to move from the analytical, thinking process into producing a golf swing that is more of a reflex action. The more you practice it in your mind using your senses of feeling, seeing and trusting, the more automatic it will be. This is the way you learned to drive a car.
After you had practiced and learned how to drive a car, you no longer thought about your foot on the gas and break pedals, or your hands on the steering wheel. You were then only concerned with reacting to the road.
When you begin to trust your golf swing, you will have let go of judging your performance. As a youngster you learned the difficult task of tying the laces on your shoes. After much practice you could put on your shoes and tie the laces without thinking about how to do it. If the laces weren’t perfectly symmetrical, you accepted that they were tied and didn’t unlace and tie them again. There was no judgment. You successfully completed your intention to tie the laces. “
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? You would stop judging and trust that you would be successful. You would stop worrying about the results. Remember when you expected to break 100 for the first time, or shoot a certain score, it took several tries. You probably considered it a failure when it didn’t happen when you expected it. Know that because of your effort, and trust, you will create an even lower score because you let go of the fear of failure, enjoyed being in the process of playing, and allowed yourself to be successful.
