Every Friday morning I’ll be sending a quick email with FIVE POINTS I’d like to share with you. They’ll be mostly articles and tools I hope will help you.
Here’s what I’ve got for you today:
#1 – Trainthemind.com On Demand Mindfulness Training
Train The Mind is a collaboration of several performance coaches across the country who want to make a difference in today’s athlete. Most notably they are focused on teen athletes. They are focused on educating parents and coaches to protect their athletes from getting overwhelmed with pressure. Any parent with a teen athlete needs to check out what they are doing.
This is no-brainer for me (if I was blessed with a child with certain disABILITIES). There are income and asset restrictions that the government deems to be necessary in order to “qualify” for benefits from social security, medicare other “programs”. The issue that I have is the child eventually will be an adult and more often times than not will want some sort of independence given their certain disABILITIES. This “ACT” allows for assets to be owned personally and well above the minimums of said restrictions. Read more about the efforts to bring about this financial instrument and maybe you or your friends or family members see a benefit for their special child.
If you are a student of mine you hopefully have noticed that I tend to focus on personal change rather then physical change at the outset of our program. This is not overlooked in the other areas of my coaching. As I have stated, I am a coach and an instructor – two completely different things. I’m expanding my coaching endeavors beyond the golf course. In recent months I’ve began putting together “on demand video courses” that range from brain fixes to anxiety and anger management. I’m also getting ceritied in NLP (neuro linguistic programming) more about that later. Read my latest article on getting focused on what you need to do in order to create your desired outcome.
#4 – Alamo Angels
Originally founded in December 2016 as the San Antonio Angel Network (SAAN), Alamo Angels is an exclusive group of business leaders and corporate sponsors who promote local business growth. Alamo Angels members identify and grow promising startup companies by providing financial investment, educational resources, and business services to entrepreneurs in the Alamo City. The fabulous Kim Biffle is not only a friend but also someone I admire. She takes the reins of this much needed venture fund and will make sure San Antonio is proud of our home grown entrepreneurs. If you are interested in getting involved in this venture please reach out to Kim at the link above.
NLP is a psychological approach that involves analyzing strategies used by successful individuals and applying them to reach a personal goal. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behavior learned through experience to specific outcomes. Proponents of NLP assume all human action is positive. Therefore, if a plan fails or the unexpected happens, the experience is neither good nor bad—it simply presents more useful information. WARNING: If you are a student of mine, I’m spreading the WOO WOO to you in every session! haha
