Peter Knight: Attitude for improvement

IT'S good to have goals but having the right attitude towards improving will help you achieve them quicker.

ATTITUDE is a crucial part of playing well and improving but it’s something we probably don’t talk enough about.

Most of us have some sort of golf goal be it to become the World Number One or win our club championship or even just to break 100.

Goals are good things to have and work towards but it’s important we do that with the right attitude to give ourselves our best chance.

The key is how you go about trying to achieve those goals and this is where a lot of people could use some help.

By simply having a goal but no plan for achieving it you put an enormous amount of pressure on yourself because until you get there you’re ‘failing’ for want of a better term.

But if you take the attitude of simply trying to improve constantly then you will still eventually get where you want to go but with a lot less pressure along the journey.

On a day to day basis everybody’s golf fluctuates and if that is your guide you will be on a constant roller coaster.

But if you aim to get a little bit better each day then you will have multiple successes along the way.

Even tiny improvements can be seen as a step in the right direction and that’s a much more positive and productive way to improving.
