“Pastor Izzy” joins #OntheMark to talk about mental and emotional challenges that life, and golf, present. As an overarching topic, Brandon addresses how Faith can become, and oftentimes is, the cornerstone of every challenging endeavour, and how it can help you navigate your way to success.
In his discussion about Faith he delves into the following circumstances:
The game of Golf and its inherently unpredictable nature and how unsurety and doubt are a very real part of the game.
Preparing with no concrete guarantees for success.
Finding trust in your preparation and approach.
Building resilience and how to “keep going” when times get tough.
How to lift your mood and countenance amidst challenges.
Building a habit of finding the positive in every situation and challenge, and
Contrasting Optimists, Pessimists and Realists.
He also talks about the discipline of “Shifting Perspectives and Finding Joy” in life and in golf, and he shares skills and ways to do that for a happier, more purpose-driven life and life in golf.
