Today we have with us on the Brain Booster a special guest in the shape of PGA Professional Ian St John.
Ian is the joint host with Harry Ewing of the ‘3 of the tee podcast’.
We first met a number of years ago at a seminar in Ireland and have stayed in touch ever since.
Ian is passionate about coaching and game improvement and has had some wonderful guests on his podcast show.
We talk during our time together about how Ian’s world was literally turned upside down when he received a diagnosis of advanced cancer.
He woke up one morning and EVERYTHING had changed
His whole reality changed and he was confronted by both treatment of the cancer and the ensuing paralysis.
Ian talked honestly about his treatment and how he used some mental game techniques to get through the really dark times.
The ability to challenge some of the ‘automatic thoughts’ and how he could begin to change his STORY
The value of the WRITTEN word
How writing out his thoughts really helped in a profound way.
How he began to build HOPE.
The ability to BE on THIS day and in THIS moment
The need to PLAN what a good day looks like.
Ian highlighted how ideas that people often dismiss in terms of their golf have proven immensely beneficial to him in the greatest of life challenges he has found himself.
We talked of the future and the love of the game of golf that has grown even stronger.
You cannot help but be inspired by Ian St John and his words of wisdom can help anyone facing challenges either on or off the golf course.
