Own the Green – After COVID – 19
Thank you to President Les Stolarik, for his persistence and confidence in pursuing me for the position of Club coach and to develop the promising group of players within the club to the next level.
The position would be a challenge to me also, as previously my only input over the years was to just pass on general knowledge as learnt by me through my bowls journey.
I have to say I was disappointed with the outcome of last year’s men’s final.
Reflecting, I take full responsibility. I know I can do better.
What did I learn from this?
Analysing the season nearly everything was the same as in the past. We kept looking back. We have to focus forward. We must change from the old ways. We know how to lose. Now we have to learn how to win the big ones.
From now on its:
OWN THE GREEN – AFTER COVID – 19
Change is happening, thanks to COVID – 19. Like it or not, it is so. We have to embrace it.
I recently read a couple of articles by millennials in the finance industry. They see a great future for them. It was heartening to “listen” to their enthusiasm and what they will do to accept the challenge of change.
Success is a journey.
The “Own the Green – after COVID – 19″ begins with change.
So, we take our eyes off the rear view mirror and transfer them to the windscreen.
Our vision is now forward and we focus there.
From beginner to elite. A plan to succeed.
Become the person (bowler) we need to be.
It compels us to make a choice.
Visualise that choice.
Allow the visualisation to change the old belief.
HOW BAD DO YOU WANT THE PREMIERSHIP?
There is so much change we can cope with.
Start small. Basics. The ABC, stance, grip, delivery. Practice . Make it automatic.
How many members have picked up a bowl in their hand during this break?
Start now. Pick up a bowl everyday for a few minutes. What does it feel like? Bowl it into a pillow, if you have room, if not take it outside, enjoying the feel, the grip. Deliver it on the lawn or nature strip. How was your balance? Someone might see you practice, encourage them to have a go, the club may gain a member(s).
If we want to succeed we start NOW.
I can help you to practice at home so you too can ” Own the Green – after COVID – 19″. Feel free to give me a call 0408671506.
