Rising Above It! in Vogue


Paging through the September issue of Vogue I stumbled upon an article written by the chief editor, Anna Wintour, titled Rising Above It. I said in jest, ‘Wow, I’m in Vogue, how did they ever find me?’  As it turns out it was about me, and it was about you too!

With today’s economy in the trenches, everyone including the icons of fashion are feeling the challenges at some level. How apropos to have Hollywood hottie Halley Berry grace the Vogue magazine cover. The article acknowledges the roller coaster ride Halley had been on since the making of the award winning hit, Monster’s Ball. Some might think the grass is greener for those on the other side, the truth is, each and every one of us experience adversity on all levels. How many times have you known or heard of the person who seemed to have it all together only to find out they had been going through treacherous times?

Adversity is part of life, no one gets a free pass, ever! Big or small you have to go through hardship. Adversity helps you to grow, learn and stretch yourself to breakthrough to places you never thought you could go. And as the old saying goes, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.

As a leading adversity breakthrough expert I suggest to you, accept the road to have bumps, potholes and bridges that fall out. You can choose to fall into them or rise above and create another path to keep you moving forward in your life.

No,no,no….not a player like the one who cheats on his spouse. That’s a whole different subject. I mean the player on the golf course!

Tiger Woods has used his secret weapon to blow the competition out of the water and be one of the best golfers in the world

Tiger’s focus, concentration and unshakeable confidence far surpass most anyone on the tour. You can see it every time he plays.  He honed these skills at a very young age and became the master of it giving him the leading advantage over the rest of the competition.

Golfers ask me, what’s his secret and how does he do it? The answer is simple, he focuses on playing the mental game of golf and not so much on the mechanics of the game. He uses his own mental power to unlock his personal greatness.

He uses his ability to access his mind to get him into the most crucial spot he needs to be, ‘The Infinity Zone’.

‘The Infinity Zone’ is the space between thoughts. It is the state of mind which is uncluttered, limitless, and where the impossible is possible to achieve. Obstacles are nonexistent here. This is the place where you want to be when you are playing.

Tiger routinely programs his mind to react specifically to his environment,  circumstances and conditions. He eliminates any obstacle or distraction by shifting his mindset to a whole different level.

Currently in his game it is clear he hasn’t been making the shift so easily. This illustrates how stress off the course effects you on the course. Even the best players need to practice staying in ‘The Infinity Zone’.
