What in the world does an equestrian manifesto have to do with horses and reaching your goals?
A manifesto is “a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of it’s user.”
Politicians and companies make manifestos, but we as individuals rarely do. Writing down an equestrian manifesto is a great start to clearing your thoughts and getting motivated to accomplish big goals.
Who you are on the inside matters to your horse, but why?
There are lots of reasons of course, but just from a practical standpoint, how you feel on the inside reflects how you treat others (your horse included).
When you feel bad inside, or fearful, or angry, or depressed, you don’t have patience, kindness or firmness you need. You can’t focus on connection and be there in the moment with your horse.
Taking the time to focus on who you are and what you believe in before embarking on taking on a new set of goals with your horse can make all the difference in the level of your success.
So take a minute…
WHO IS THE REAL ME ?
and WHAT DO I BELIEVE IN AND STAND FOR?
Is the way you feel inside or the way you are living right now reflect that?
Life can so easily take you from who and what you want to be to a person you don’t even recognize.
Just take a minute and be aware then take 1 step today to becoming that person by writing down a quick manifesto and putting it somewhere where you will see it often.
We become what we think about. So think about it. And become it. BELIEVE and do not doubt.
I promise this has everything to do with your relationship with your horse.
And what if you fall off the horse so to speak and stop living as the person you want to be?
You look at your manifesto and you get back on the horse and carry on with the ride!
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE AND STAND FOR TODAY?
Remember if you don’t stand for something you fall for anything.
Feel free to use any or all of these thoughts for your own! (to save right click the manifesto & click “save” or “save link as”) We’d love to hear your thoughts, any ideas you would like to add to the manifesto? Please leave them in the comments below ?
