    The Power of thought and how it creates your world – Dicken Bettinger #178

    The Power of thought and how it creates your world – Dicken Bettinger #178

    Today we have on the show Dicken Bettinger We go into some fascinating areas discussing the power of thought and the effect it has on your game and on your life. We discuss the origins of the THREE PRINCIPLES as proposed by Syd Banks
    Dicken became a licensed clinical psychologist in 1983 and retired his psychotherapy practice after working as a psychologist for 31 years. Twenty-eight years ago he met Sydney Banks who had an enlightenment experience where he realized the Three Principles that underlie all human experience.
    Dicken had finally found universal principles that he could teach anyone.  He was grateful to find something that was simple in nature yet had the profound effect of raising the quality of a person’s life.
    He feels fortunate that for 23 years he was able to learn directly from Sydney Banks.
    In 2008 Dicken received a Certificate of Competency from Mr. Banks authorizing him to teach the Three Principles.
    We discuss:
    How thought creates our reality
    The nature of our mind
    How it is futile to try to ‘control’ your mind
    To be able to let the mind just ‘be’ and get on with the task at hand
    How the wisdom of the body can be encouraged
    The freedom of PLAY
    This is a wonderful session with Dicken
    He is clearly a man of great integrity and you can pick up from the delivery of his words just how much he embodies the work of Syd Banks
    You can only gain by enjoying the episode

    Seve – His life through the lens – Dave Cannon #177

    Seve – His life through the lens – Dave Cannon #177

    Today on the Brain Booster we are joined by one of the world’s greatest sports photographers Dave Cannon. To pay tribute to the legendary Seve Ballesteros.
    Dave has produced a masterpiece of a book called ‘Seve – His life through the lens’ containing some of the most wonderfully iconic pictures of the great man.
    From his early days in Perdrena, Spain through a wonderful career on the European and PGA Tour to the tragic loss of his life ten years ago to the ravages of brain cancer.
    Perhaps the single most iconic golf picture of all time, the ‘matador pose’ as Seve holed the winning putt on the final green at St Andrews in 1984 was taken by Dave Cannon. He shares his anxiety of wondering if he had ‘got’ the picture in the pre digital technology days of rolls of film and dark room development.
    We get to look back on Dave’s amazing career and how almost by accident he became a great sports photographer.
    The people who helped him along the way. The building of his skill and his craft.
    So many parallels to building skill in your own game or your own business.
    The link with his own golf and then ultimately to the great friendship he developed with Seve Ballesteros over many glorious years.
    We discuss a very moving story of Dave spending a day photographing Seve on the beach at his home in Pedrena.
    Going back to the place where it all began.
    Learning to play the game with a rusty old 3 iron on the beach in Northern Spain
    The sheer delight Seve had recreating those iconic moments as he made his own ‘golf world’, of self made holes and flags on the windswept beach.
    It is a moving, funny and sad story all at the same time as we ponder the cruel way he was taken from us at such an early age.
    As we have said before on the Brain Booster reminding us all of our mortality and the absolute precious nature of time and opportunity.
    How much of a dedicated family man Seve was and how he loved to spend time with his own children. His radiant smile was never to be forgotten and his legacy to the game of golf will stand for all time.
    It is important to keep the memory alive for the current generation to understand just what an influence he was.
    The book is literally a work of art.
    Seve – His life through the lens.

    Just for TODAY – Karl Morris #176

    Just for TODAY – Karl Morris #176

    From time to time I get some requests to do a solo podcast to summarize some of the previous few week’s sessions. So here we go!
    We go into my trip to see Vin Harris up in the remote hills of Scotland
    We discuss the early days at Samye Ling – Building the Buddhist monastery
    His main teacher Akong Rinpoche
    His incredible life and what his ideas can teach us all
    A fascinating story
    I get the chance also to discuss with you the concept of
    JUST FOR TODAY
    We have for a long time on the Brain Booster looked at the idea of accumulating GOOD DAYS
    It sounds utterly simple yet the practical application of it can be a really BIG challenge
    Each day we are on ‘auto pilot’
    We do what we do
    We do what we have always done
    Patterns keep repeating
    Mistakes made and opportunities missed
    So much of our day COUL be influenced by a single shift
    If the PERSON we are was different
    What would it be like if JUST FOR TODAY you decided to be CURIOUS with all of your lessons
    Or you played golf JUST FOR TODAY with a sense of FREEDOM
    Or just for today you made the decision to be GRATEFUL
    One focus multiple benefits
    The idea of ‘just for today’ is a really simple one
    Yet I have found over and over again with many players and coaches it can be immensely beneficial
    Aim to give it a try

    Trust and Let Go – Peter Ballingall #175

    Trust and Let Go – Peter Ballingall #175

    Today we have on the Brain Booster a wonderful man in the shape of Peter Ballingall.
    Peter has just recently released a great book called ‘Trust and Let Go’
    A collection of his thoughts about coaching over the past 50 years or so.
    The title is wonderful and sums up what we could all consider as a useful direction to go with our game and indeed our life.
    Trust and Let Go!
    With Peter I had the chance to discuss his great career and the influence of certain people along the way.
    Not least the great John Jacobs
    Peter had the opportunity as a young golf pro to work for and with John.
    It must have been an incredible time.
    Yet Peter took that opportunity with both hands
    He made the most of an opportunity presented by fate.
    It is a great message to us all
    When the chance comes along to take it with both hands
    Trust and Let Go!
    Peter went on to run incredibly successful golf schools over many years at Barnham Broom in Norfolk
    He was a pioneer in the world of golf schools
    More recently he has been in Spain at El Rompido
    A beautiful part of the world still coaching as enthusiastically as ever
    In our session Peter’s passion shines through
    His insights are very valuable
    You will gain a lot from listening to his wise words

The real Stevo ,

Superb

Excellent podcast, hours of quality discussions with top guests. Guaranteed to open your mind and get you thinking about your approach to golf, sport and who knows maybe even your daily life.
Has kept me entertained on long car journeys for hours and reignited my enjoyment of a game I’ve played for 35 years.

Golf listener ,

Fantastic insights

Why do we keep playing this game? Some days are better than others but all create joy (every shot pleases someone) and great memories. Listening to this podcasts reinforces how lucky we are to both play the game and build friendships for life. Andrew Murray and Karl Morris fireside reflections could become a spin off series we would all enjoy!

True Groove - Michel Put

Wow! The Brain Booster continues to excite and bring new ideas and people to the audience. This one in particular is wild and out there in terms of how to feel and create shots starting from the impact position. Thank you Michel for the insight….still looking for a video of someone actually hitting a golf ball using this feel on your You Tube…..looking forward to exploring it - you never know until you try it! Keep it up Karl - simply the most thought provoking and insightful podcast in this area.
