Make Your Dream Your Goal

When a dream becomes a goal, simplicity and complexity come together.   Choose between significant living and easy living.

While watching The American, over and over I heard these statements: This is what dreams are made of.  Opportunity of a lifetime...

When asked the secret to her success, Hailey Kinsel replied with truthful candor, “there’s no secret, I have a good horse and I serve a big God.”

That explains what I meant about simplicity and complexity coming together!

The simple truth is that she does have a good horse.

Complexities emerge when you consider all the uncontrollable variables in her win.  And the fact that Hailey plays a crucial part in the equation. No matter how humble her answer, it is her that has to ride, assist, not interfere, and encourage OR no one knows that Sister is a great horse!

It was Hailey that had to deal with Sister pulling a shoe in the 8-man round and still have her ready for the 4-man Finals. The complexity of being prepared, in a matter of minutes, both physically and mentally, is ice water in the veins of humility.  

“The harshness and grit of rodeo isn’t limited to the arena; the journey can be just as arduous.”  Insightful words from Bull Rider, Tristan Mize, telling his suspense filled days leading up to his most recent Extreme Bulls victory. 

Start making your plans! Read your situation.

Make your dream, your goal!  The future isn’t somewhere out there - it’s now.
