Sometimes, in order to achieve your goal, you have to let go of the when and the how but hang on the belief that you can and will.
In my previous blog, I talked about wanting to “get the buckle” at the WDAA World Show in 2017 with Kit. It’s a good read, check it out. Well, I didn’t get the buckle at that show but…keep reading.
What I want you to understand is that just because you don’t hit your target, you didn’t fail, it’s a timing issue. Maybe you got the how and when wrong and that’s OK.
Last year one of my friends was pursuing her bronze medal in dressage. I remember being at one of the shows in which the score came in just a sliver too low, I mean, she missed it by a hair. How disappointing for her, but a few months later she tried again.
This time, she slayed her ride and nailed the score, I mean hit it out of the park. She earned her medal by a landslide, not a sliver. She didn’t give up just because she missed it previously. The moment she got her score was incredibly emotional, it’s a difficult process to earn a medal and the obstacles she had to overcome were not easy.
You can’t get too attached to the how and the when you will attain what you desire because you just never know. Be actively growing into the person who has achieved your goal, practice being that person today, do what that person does, learn what that person has learned. Become the version of yourself that already has what you desire.
Practice being your higher self today!
So back to my buckle story…the story ends like this; I got my buckle but not how I thought or when I thought. At the year end awards for the show season, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the award for Basic Level Champion was a buckle, and I won it. The irony continues however, the horse I earned it on was not Kit, it was Baby J.
Now go be a goal setting, goal getting, goal digger!!!
