How old would you be if you forgot how old you were?
Every time I step onto a horse I find myself in a conversation within myself. This is a conversation that no one can hear except me and I am so greatly that in recent years I have learned how to use this conversation to my advantage. I know I run the risk here of having you think I am crazy as I have admittedly said I am talking to myself, I would venture to say that if you will just listen, your having these conversations as well. These conversations have tremendous influence on everything in your life and I mean EVERYTHING! Your relationships, your finances, your health, therefore it should not come as a surprise that these conversation will effect your riding as well.
The image that you hold of yourself is actually created by these conversations. Do you like your self image? The answer to this question is extremely important and is deserving of attention and some close examination. How you see yourself works like a sealing in your life. It can be very limiting because your level in any area of your life will not exceed how you see yourself. This self image is a store house for habitual behavior and habitual behavior is essentially your automatic pilot in your life. I might add here that I am not talking about prideful arrogance when I ask the question do you like your self image.
It is to your benefit for you to understand this statement; you were created by God, God is good and He creates no junk, therefore you are good and are deserving of all good things as I believe this is Gods will for your life. I Timothy 4:4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude.
The exercise of GRAITITUDE will never fail to strengthen your faith and renew your purpose.
I now ask you this question to think about, are you doing your best?
If the honest answer to this question is no, then the next question is why not? Could it be that the answer to this question, why not, is that you hold a self image that tells you that you deserve less than you really want and desire. The image you hold of yourself was programmed into you early on in life. The great news here is if it was programmed into you, you can install a new program by being mindful of these conversations you have with yourself. Choose only positive possibility thinking. When anything other than that shows up, recognize it as an old program and refuse to take hold of them. You see you already have all the goodness of the divine infinite spirit of God living inside of you; you are God’s greatest creation. This means you have everything you need to succeed. Programming a new automatic pilot into your life deliberately and consciously will start a transformation of change that will refresh you with hope and joy for the expectation of good things to come.
Back to the question, how old would you be if you forgot how old your were? You see in that perceptive age is a state of mind, haven’t we all seen young people that act much older than their years and old people that act much younger than their years, how can this be? Pure and simple the image that you hold of yourself. Fact is we all get older physically, but mentally staying youthful and energetic in thinking will lead to ones desired winning image.
