All of life happens between the ears – its all about imagination and visualization; Similarly, the game of golf happens in the mind. There are many similarities between life and golf. It’s all about the power of mind and how one can utilize it can determine what he or she can achieve in life.
To simply put, life is a reflection of what one thinks and feels inside his/her mind. Both of them happens in the mind and hence, the status of the mind determines what one attracts into his/her life. In a way, this also know as Law of Attraction. The process of practicing mindfulness makes one more aware their thoughts and feelings. A good state of mind brings all positive things into life and similarly, a good state of mind of a golfer brings his/her excellent game into play.
