Tiger’s identity is tied to raising the BAR. The what?
How do you compete at the Masters when your identity has been shattered?
Sure Tiger has won 4 Masters Tournaments, and he may actually win his 5th this weekend… we will see. However, his personal life is affected. His identity was revealed. The results that we have all been visiting since last Thanksgiving with Tiger is really a great index of his beliefs. Our results are the comments system to our beliefs (which is our identity).
So that means that what we’re seeing in Tiger’s life recently was really because of beliefs he adopted some time ago. For any reason Tiger’s beliefs had him thinking that he was untouchable as it came to extramarital affairs, and possibly taking illegal growth hormone substances (that’s still speculation).
The thrill of uncertainty, and the importance factor Tiger received from these girls were powerful enough to change his belief system to it is okay to be doing exactly what he was doing. That rush became addicting to himand he kept seeking it out. Who knows what the actual number of women he had affairs with – which doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that his beliefs, and his identity have been shown for the world to see. So what’s next?
From the Dream Bar Cafe system we say that all outcomes are lagging indicators of some-thing else. Your feelings, your thoughts, your actions, and your thinking are considered a leading indicator, which result in forming your Beliefs… hence your identity of yourself.
This is why we place heavy emphasis on raising your own BAR (Belief, Action, Result) cycle. Change one variable and you will see a outcome. Change a few variables, and you’ll see exponential results.
Just how does Tiger get back to adjusting his beliefs? Only by stepping up and moving through the full DREAM BAR CAFE system will he know what Drives him, and what his motives are for doing what he has been doing – revealing his identity.
Do you think he was thinking about them when he let his beliefs denigrate to the level they were at before this all came out? His identity as a Playboy became so strong that nothing else mattered – as it came into the thrill of the chase. Please don’t misunderstand me… I believe that Tiger loves his family, his wife Elin, his two children, his Mother, his Faith in Buddhism, and his competitive golfing career. I am positive of this fact.
What happened was that Tiger slowly chipped away at his belief system that his parents instilled in him from an early age. He started discovering that his life has to be mixed up, and have a bit of uncertainty thrown in. He allowed his beliefs to slide, which resulted in taking risky activities, and so the outcomes which became evident.
Will his game be effected during this weeks Masters Tournament? Probably not. He still has those superb competitive beliefs that he’s the worlds greatest golfer – that should not have changed. This week is also feeding his other individual needs of certainty, doubt, love & significance. So I don’t think you will need to worry about him… he’ll do just fine. This is Tiger’s week to shine in the spotlight and get his individual needs met and his tank full.
Whether you like Tiger or dislike him doesn’t matter. You can now see where and how Tiger’s individuality went astray – by knowing that your thoughts and feelings have an immediate influence on your results. You can now use this in your own life to create the results you choose.
There’s one caveat to look out for with Tiger, and in your life. It is possible to alter an action and get a different result – for a while… however, unless you change your belief, your identity will surely kick-in and you’re going to snap right back to the same person you were before. That’s because you can never exceed what your identity will allow.
Interesting isn’t it? Give it some thought on your life… and increase your BAR.
P.S.. Who will make the coveted Green Jacket? I’d say it’s the individual with the strongest belief in themselves, and the player who understands, and implements the Dream Bar Cafe system finest.
