Tiger’s identity is tied to raising the BAR. The what?
How can you compete in the Masters when your identity has been shattered? Tiger Woods is in conflict with himself – especially now that he is going to play at Augusta National in the Masters Tournament.
Sure Tiger has won 4 Pros 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 seeing since last Thanksgiving with Tiger is really a great index of his beliefs.
So that means that what we’re seeing in Tiger’s life recently was really due to beliefs that he adopted some time ago. For any reason Tiger’s beliefs had him believing that he was untouchable when it came into extramarital affairs, and maybe taking illegal growth hormone chemicals (that is still speculation).
The thrill of doubt, and the significance factor Tiger received from these girls were powerful enough to change his belief system to that of it is okay to be doing what he was doing. That rush became addicting to himand he kept seeking it out. Who knows what the true number of women he had affairs with – that does not really matter. What does matter is that his beliefs, and his identity have now been revealed for the world to see. So what is next?
From the Dream Bar Cafe system we state that all Results are lagging indicators of some-thing else. Your feelings, your thoughts, your actions, and your thinking are considered a leading indicator, which lead to forming your Beliefs… hence your identity of yourself.
This is why we put heavy emphasis on increasing your own BAR (Belief, Action, Result) cycle. Change one variable and you will see a result. Change a few variables, and you will see exponential results. Correct thinking leads to correct results.
Just how can Tiger get back to adjusting his beliefs? He needs to reevaluate his DREAM (Desire/Decisions, Reasons, Enthusiasm, Actions, Manifestation) process. Only by stepping up and moving through the full DREAM BAR CAFE system will he know what Drives himand what his motives are for doing what he’s been doing – showing 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 powerful that nothing else mattered – as it came to the thrill of the chase. Please do not misunderstand me… I believe that Tiger loves his family, his wife Elin, his two children, his Mom, his Faith in Buddhism, and his competitive golfing career. I am positive of this fact.
What occurred was that Tiger gradually chipped away at his belief system that his parents instilled in him from a young age. He started discovering that his life has to be mixed up, and have a little uncertainty thrown in. He allowed his beliefs to slip, which led to taking risky actions, and thus the results 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 human needs of certainty, uncertainty, love & value. So I don’t think you 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 fulfilled and his tank full.
Whether you like Tiger or dislike him does not matter. You can now see where and how Tiger’s identity went astray – by knowing that your thoughts and feelings have a direct influence on your results. You can now use this in your life to create the results you select.
There’s one caveat to look out for with Tiger, and in your life. You can change an action and get a different result – for a while… however, unless you change your belief, your identity will certainly kick-in and you’ll 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 own life… and increase your BAR.
P.S.. Who will earn the coveted Green Jacket? I’d say it is the person with the strongest belief in themselves, and the player that understands, and implements the Dream Bar Cafe system best.
