As hard as it may seem, dreaming up your life in 5, 10, 20 year increments is important. We put together a 5 year personal plan & a couple plan & a family plan. Whoa! thats a lot of work...
well, not really.
its tougher to actually commit to what we want (well for us any ways) haha we have an idea of what we may want to become...hey thats good enough! We know we want to develop our horsemanship skills... what does that mean? what does it look like? or better yet feel like? so what would be step 1. then go with it!
goals should be there...and fluid..dont get stuck on the details. as anything in the horse world...things can change in a blink of an eye. Best to roll with life in the direction you hope to see your self.
We know we want to be the best horseman (and women) that we each can be.. what that looks like - we aren't sure but we are excited to be working at it.
what helps to support that goal? who can help you develop to your goals? whats a reasonable time frame? how you going to celebrate after?
dont forget to celebrate! its fun & rewarding to acknowledge your self for all the hard work and actually going for it!
There is Millions of books/videos/people at there who can delve deeper into goal getting...if you need help, ask for it! look for it! find that inspiration that you need.
We have kids, so planning out our family & personal goals is important...we can't just be dragging out youngsters around aimlessly.. we want them to see success in us - so they are encouraged to go do it for them selves.
Life's a journey - enjoy the ride. Best of luck to you all in 2019.
