There are only a few things you need to believe if you want to
be successful with your horse business.
I didn’t say you need to “know” these things,
I said you need to “believe” these things.
The first belief is that “success is easy.”
It’s easy because you are always most successful doing the
things you love to do. (Unfortunately you are bombarded every
day with messages saying you can’t do the thing you love
to do….instead you must get a job, work like crazy to assure
your financial future and then retire in later life to do what
you wish you had been doing all your life.)
What do you love doing with horses more than anything else? Well,
then do it!
Start doing it today and find a way to create an income by doing
what you love to do.
The instant you start doing what you love to do, you’ll
find that no matter how much work it is, how difficult it is,
how much you have to learn about how to do it better, it’s
What is hard is failure.
If you are doing something you don’t love to do, no matter
how good you are at it, it’s still hard. You hate to get
up in the morning and face another day filled with frustration,
stress, disappointment and criticism….and that is what you
get every time you work at something less than what you love to
Once you decide to do what you love to do you’ll believe
success is easy and failure is hard.
The second thing you need to believe is that “you can change
Changing your life can be done in an instant…it doesn’t
even take a second. All you have to do is decide how you are going
to change your life.
The instant you make that decision, your life has changed.
No matter what your decision about your life, at that instant,
you are living it. Have you decided to be a “reining horse
trainer”? If you have, you are.
Changing your life was easy, but when you fail at maintaining
that change, it’s hard. What do you know about the conformation
of a reining horse? It’s going to be fun and easy to find
out. But if you say, “Heck, I don’t need to know that,”
then you aren’t maintaining the change in your life, and
I guarantee your failures are going to be hard.
You can decide to be the best tack salesperson in the world, but
if you don’t maintain a constant study of tack, its uses,
its manufacture, its price, its availability, then you are going
to know how hard failure can be.
Do all the things you can think of to be the best tack salesperson
in the world, and you will be, and your success will be easy.
(Doing what you love doing is always easy.)
You’ve got to believe that “innovation” is fun
and easy and that you are committed to it.
People are reluctant to innovate. There are all kinds of reasons
not to change.
Sure there are failures and flops when you innovate, but nothing
new was ever created without a few mistakes along the way.
There’s nothing wrong with mistakes…they are just
guidelines to tell you that “it doesn’t work this
way.” (Allowing a horse to make mistakes is the best way
to show him how you want it done.)
Finally you need to believe that the best time to act on a good
or new idea is at the time of its inception.
I know that you’ve been thinking about what it is you love
best doing with horses.
Act on it now! Change your life now! Success is easy when you
do what you love to do.
