GLOBAL EQUESTRIAN SUCCESS COACH
"THE DEFINITION OF SUCCESS AND HOW TO MANAGE IT IN EQUESTRIAN SPORT."
Success is such an elusive term. We are brought up to desire it. Some of us crave it and some of us fear it, but how do we define it and how the heck do we manage it?
For many of my clients who are on their own personal journey it is easier to "be trying to get there (wherever there may be)" than it is for those who have by work or by an element of luck or surprise have had a taste of it.
For example, if we are stepping up a class, on a new or young horse or any other reason that you have not yet deemed yourself as successful there is a logical (valid-ish) reason.
However, if you are in the habit of winning, or your new horse has a flawless record, or your family / client base expect it of you the pressure can indeed be much more.
Either way the problem is this. We try to define success as one solid outcome.
1 day - 1 number- 1 time - 1 performance - 1 result - 1 comment
With my clients we work on strategies that work towards goals, but we measure success on a different level, so that it is something that indeed happens very often. Then we can get used to feeling successful, thus growing in confidence and stepping away from fear.
Follow my Top Tips to Embracing your Successful Strategy.
1- Set a realistic goal of where you are working towards then make a written detailed plan of what you need to do to get there. Include training and riding at home in this as well as flat and groundwork.
2- For each session you do focus on a desired outcome that's based on one simple thing - A FEELING!
3- Every day write in your journal what went well and what needs work, but most of all how the great bits felt.
4- Imagine the emotion
When you start to ride for feeling rather than results success is yours, your horse improving, your riding improving, overcoming performance and confidence blocks is all success! By ticking off your weekly success sheet you will see just how successful you already are. Then the world is your oyster - so go there and own it.
