• Creating unshakeable belief

    In part 1 of internal thermostat, we talked about how the mental game – more specifically our self image, is a big determinant on our play. A big example of this is a person who sees themselves as a 90’s shooter – they are basically condemning themselves to a lifetime of stagnation, lack of progression and scores that […]
