Video explanation & how to submit your question (26:16)
My new thought feels fake
Wired to look for problems & giving away authority
Ocean view of horse training
Maybe this is proof of what you are capable of...
INCONSISTENT BEHAVIOR...and pre-planning
'Too far out of it now' or 'showing up for myself today'
Wasting time: annoyed vs amazing
The power of simple.
HELP: I am sabotaging myself
Indecisiveness: What would I rather spend my energy on that considering and reconsidering this choice?
How would you talk to your best friend...
Strength & posture: Part 2 (disappointed/resolute/creative)
I have a choice! How empowering is that!?!
Is that new thought believable?
“I wonder why she still has questions about this?”
This feeling can come along with me...
Innocent sounding thoughts can be so sneaky
"I can't" vs "I choose not to..."
The horse's behavior is your circumstance.
Your instructor offered you her thought.
Goals are like a GPS
Embarrassment. Once circumstance= 2 models.
Shifting from 'lost/stupid' to capable
Urgency: try to push, chase, fit it “all” in
Confusion: advice from different people
Horse tossing head & regret
Overwhelm: My brain wants to know all the answers before I begin...
Time specific goals and fairness
Looking for a 'right' answer
Stuck or simply part of the journey?
"maybe if I just beat myself up more, I will actually do the things!"
Fear of rejection is normal
How can I best use the exercises for the strength and posture I'm seeking? What else can I do improve our physical abilities?
Should I show my horse or is it too soon?
I am really discouraged by my progress.
