As in golf, fear of hitting the ball into a water hazard can cause you to hit the ball into a water hazard. Focusing on the target where you want the ball to go is a better option than focusing on where you don’t want it to go. As in investing what is the target, long term gains? (“thinking well” using thought without creating fear)

Andrew:

Thanks for the golf analogy! Do you know if Tiger Woods studies philosophy to any degree?

I have read of his meditative practices and the quote you shared reminds me of ancient western and some eastern philosophies as well...

"It is easier to exclude harmful passions than to rule them, and to deny them admittance than to control them after they have been admitted." ~ Seneca (5 BC - 65 AD)

"Be master of mind rather than mastered by mind." ~ Zen Proverb

Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
