Episode 185- How to determine if your self concept is slowing you down.

Self-concept is how you perceive your behaviors and abilities. It affects your motivation, attitude, and behavior. It is possible that your self concept is slowing you down more than your technical skills.

Signs your self concept might need an upgrade:
-You have trouble staying motivated to work with your horse.
-When you do work with your horse, you see mostly what isn’t working.
-When you do have success, you quickly have thoughts like ‘this is a fluke’, or ‘I won’t be able to do it again.’

Improving your self concept is more than just thinking better thoughts. It is a skill that you can learn. I give real life examples that clearly illustrate the power of this concept.

    Thank you for this! You are not only helping me learn to train my own horse. You are helping me parent my children. We all listened to this podcast, I have taken notes that I am posting on the wall and we are all going to read this daily for the summer. These are skills I want my girls to take into their adult hood. God bless you!!
