In the Matters of You,

There is that little matter about how you feel about all this.  .  .  Whether you feel what is right or not.  Your feelings lie and they hold you back allot of times from getting where you really want to be.

I am working on my golf game and my swing,  I have a been for years addicted to the game.  .  .  At my best I have been a single digit handicap but compared to the effort into the game I should be better than where I am at.

So like anybody frustrated with a skill, I have hired many coaches over the last decade.  .  .  but I have not listened because it didn’t “feel” right so I would leave said instructor not complete the instruction.

Then I got hurt and I couldn’t do what I did before, after 10 years I had to rebuild by swing.  .  .  I had to get uncomfortable with something I loved to do and on many levels have been very good at. I had to try and do things so out my comfort zone that I didn’t want to to do.

So I am now hitting the ball better, making fast progress and I am swinging in an entirely different way.  .  .  But only after deciding that I needed to make a new swing and that my feelings could not be trusted.  I found something beyond where my old place of comfort was.  .  .  and it was a breakthrough.

Your Feelings Lie,  what is good for you and what you need to do for you are two different things.  .  .  Be suspect for your feelings and trust more the result of your actions.
