It's not a new sport, like skijoring or horse jumping. It's a simple reminder that your words have power. They have the power to re-invent your future. They have the power to re-color the past. They have the power to imprint thoughts into your memory, just like you would imprint a baby horse into this new world.
But for many people, their words die before they ever reach that powerful change state. What I mean is this: Have you ever thought to yourself, "I am going to ride more," and minutes later find yourself distracted with life. Then you realize weeks later that time has passed quickly, and you have not returned to that beautiful thought. At that moment you begin to see that your words died shortly after they formed, and caused no amount of change in your behavior.
Words, unrecorded, have little power. Thoughts, unrecorded, have little power. If your words and good thoughts die as soon as they leave your mouth, they have little to no power.
But if you journal your best ideas and brightest hopes, you will make progress. I guarantee it. But you know this already. So why don't you journal more often?(Maybe you do, and I should just let you be. Or maybe you don't and it's time to start again.)
Journaling your plans for the future will make a bigger impression on your pathway to progress than nearly anything else you do in the beginning. Mapping your steps forward with clear outcomes and goals will re-shape your experience. So why not do more of it?
I know for me, I didn't get to where I am with horses, by trying to remember stuff. I journal nearly every day. I have done for nearly two decades now. I can look back and see where I was. I can see the dreams I had. I can see how so many of them are real today. I am experiencing those dreams. I can also see the future ahead of me. I see the steps I must take. I Imagine pitfalls and strategies to avoid them. I record it all. Why? Because recorded words and thoughts begin to realize their power. They begin to imprint messages on my inner self. And those messages dictate my future actions. That is the power of journaling. And that is why I want you to journal more.
And this is why I created the Mastery Horsemanship Journal. If you don't have one yet. You should get one. It will help you record your goals and dreams and map out your next steps with horses. It will give you reference to major important pieces of the puzzle to progress with horses. It will help reshape your future.
