06 Be Honest With Yourself

In this episode, David talks about some observations that he made from episodes three and four where former Newcastle United defender Peter Ramage and European Tour Golfer Chris Paisley shared fascinating insights and stories, David also goes on to present some solutions to help athletes overcome such challenges. Peter discussed his regrets from his career where he admits that he wasn’t honest with himself until he was ending his playing days, whereas Chris talks about perfectionism, and how it has taken him time to accept that he cannot play great golf everyday, and that often that you have to find ways how to play when you aren’t at your best.
