How to Beat Tiger Woods

Want to know how to beat Tiger Woods at his own game?  Nick Faldo, former golf great, explained how to do just that.

Let me set the stage...

I’m not a golf fanatic, nor do I watch a lot of TV.  When flipping channels on Monday night, July 25, (isn’t it amazing how much crap is on TV!) I stumbled across a golf exhibition tournament being shown on ABC TV called “Battle at the Bridges,” being played in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

The golf match featured Tiger Woods and John Daly paired against Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen.

About halfway through the match, Nick Faldo, a commentator and analyst for the show, remarked rather casually what he thought a competitor should focus on to beat Tiger Woods at the game of golf.

He went on to say…

1) Mental
2) Physical
3) Technique
4) Desire

I sat stunned!

Then I bolted from my chair as if stung by a bee, grabbed the first piece of scrap paper I could lay my hands on, finally found a pen, and then stumbled back in front of the TV to listen to Nick in fascination.

I wrote notes furiously!

Nick explained...

Tiger defines mentally tough.  He possesses an almost super-human ability to focus and concentrate on each shot.  He doesn’t let his mind wander when he’s on the course.  He remains positive at all times.  His confidence level causes him to expect to make every shot perfect, and to win the match.

Tiger is in good
physical shape.  Never mind the fact he recently got married.  He knows keeping his body in tune with his mind helps him to remain mentally sharp.  He can, therefore, withstand the enormous pressure of being one of the greatest golfers ever.

Of course Tiger’s technique of swinging golf clubs - to drive a ball over 300 yards (for you non-golfers, that’s really long), or to make a 20 foot put - is well-known and analyzed.  Right now, his overall ball-striking ability is not matched by anyone.

Finally, desire.  In most cases, Tiger just wants to win more than the other golfers.  Possessed with so great a desire to win - in fact obsessed or fanatical about winning – that Tiger essentially brow-beats his competitors into thinking they cannot beat him.  This last trait, combined with the other three, makes the final ingredient of an exceptional golfer.

So what lessons can we take away from Nick Faldo’s analysis?  In other words, how can we apply this insight into our own online, Internet business?

Let’s briefly look at each point -

1) Mental

Can you concentrate and focus on problems and challenges for long periods of time?  Do you remain positive and hopeful in your outlook?  Are you expecting success?  Do you experience high levels of self-confidence?

This point clearly talks about self-improvement.  Continuous education is a critical success factor.  Your state of mind, the way you think and your outlook on life and your business directly affects your desired outcomes.  You need to remain mentally tough, just like Tiger.


Do you exercise regularly?  Do you eat well?

Back in my Network Marketing days a team leader by the name of Jon Bender suggested the first hour of the day is the most important. 
Physical activity during this period gives you the energy, the stamina and the strength to meet the challenges of the day.  No matter when you exercise, though, recognize the importance of keeping in shape.

3) Technique

Do you read books or take courses or listen to tapes on a regular basis?  Do you study crucial topics like copywriting, human development, and important industry trends like Blogs and RSS, for example?

Take time today to reflect on those skills you need to improve or acquire.  Then take action.  As stated above continuous education is critical.  Never stop learning.  You must upgrade your skills in this fact-paced environment or get pushed to the sidelines.

4) Desire

How badly do you desire success (or whatever your goal)?  Do you obsess over it?  Do you believe you can attain it?  Can you picture it in your mind?

During this year’s Tour de France an interviewer asked Lance Armstrong – who just won his 7th consecutive tour win, an unbelievable accomplishment – if he thought he and his team helped to raise the level of the sport.  Lance responded by saying yes, because they were fanatical about cycling.  So great their desire they did not stop until they obtained the best equipment, the best mechanics, the best training programs, the best…well, whatever it took to be the absolute best.

If you can feel the desire, the white-hot feeling of "whatever it takes," you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Nick Faldo talked about Tiger Woods and his competitors.  But his analogy fits so perfectly for those of us making a living in the online world.

Remember – be mentally tough and watch what and how you think; exercise regularly and eat well; read books, take courses, etc. to continually learn new techniques; and, finally, create a great big desire within yourself and believe you can achieve your goals – and, you know what – you will!

Be the best!
