Episode 229: “What do you do with your horse goals and dreams when life brings it to a halt?”
I received this question, decided to make it a podcast topic because I have recently experienced a significant setback that derailed my plans.
I see three types of life issues that can bring you to a halt.
1) Mindset issues: This can show up as fear, limiting beliefs, or EMOTIONS YOU WOULD PREFER TO AVOID. It often feels like resistance.
2) A temporary circumstance that derails your plans.
An example of this would be me breaking my hand in January and missing three months of riding.
This is a temporary situation that does truly take you off your planned path…
The biggest risk here is often that, although it is temporary,
my hand is going to become fully useful, and I will be able to continue on…
The greatest risk is that your mind might leave the facts of the situation, three month delay) and loop back into mindset issues.
3) The third type of life issue that can bring things to a halt is a circumstance that permanently closes a door. The death of a horse, for example.
When you hit a wall, or get derailed, it is tough to recover if you haven’t been practicing some type of emotional weight lifting with smaller things. The thought patterns you practice in the small things is what leads to the ability to keep going when the bigger things happen.
