“But you will find out what I’m talking about is a way of life. Only you know how much effort you want to put behind it. How important it is to you to get these things done. If you are satisfied with yourself, you don’t have to satisfy me or satisfy John Doe, as far as I’m concerned. If you have satisfied yourself, you are a winner — to me. The only person you have to prove anything to in your life is yourself. I think that a person who doesn’t make of himself what he is worthy of is really cheating himself.
I don’t know what you have to offer your horse so that your horse can come through for you, but the horse can do anything you ask of him. He can do this to the best of his ability. Some of them can do things better than others, but each one can do this thing his way as well as he can. For me, the horse doesn’t have to do my thing my way, but I do want him to do my thing his way and like it.“
This describes it all – for me. Wonderfully said and touches on so many things! If we really took what he is explaining in this quote and were somehow able to truly carry it through to our life… how much would our life (with horses or not) change? A quote to keep in mine – always and forever!
