Setting the Goal

The very first step of goal setting is to, first, determine what you want at the end of the journey. That is your ultimate destination. Ask yourself…in this lifetime, what do you want to achieve? Really want to achieve? - Goal Setting Course, Step 1
Since I've decided to set some goals for myself, I may as well do it with as much chance of success as I can.  I started reading the Goal Setting Course.  I won't really have a chance to get started with the horses until next week.  So step-by-step, I'm going through the course.

Lesson 1: Setting the Goal

The goal is simple ~ To become excellent with my horses.

It's what I want more than anything else.  I've been too focused on little things, but this is the big picture.  It's not about what I can do, or what anyone else can see or what color string I have.  It's about being, in each moment, the best I can be and constantly pushing the boundaries of best.
