I have had a positive feeling in my body since this afternoon. Feeling so happy. Not sure what caused it and I’m not going to try to analyze. I’ll just enjoy it.
I hit with a friend today whom i met last week and i think i genuinely laughed hard for the first time in a while.
Today I came to the realization that I’m an elite player. I don’t have to prepare for a certain way the day before a match, or convince myself that i have confidence in my strokes on that day. I am the player I’ve always wanted to be. The way I see other players is the way others see me. I don’t have to do a certain action that day in order to be an elite player.
I am an elite player. My strokes are elite. My mental toughness is elite. The way I conduct myself is elite. I will succeed. I’m tired of seeing myself as someone trying to make it. I belong in these tournaments and I’m dangerous.
I used to gain confidence from being competitive with players who later went on to get a professional ranking. Now I’m nearly beating players who already have professional rankings. I’m ready to beat these guys.
