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.

I love this picture of a team of horses working together to get a job done.  Not a matching team, yet the significance is that they were united in their goal.  Differences made them stronger, but an equal yoke was paramount.  Work was empowered with purpose.

For a company to become a brand there needs to be a promise associated with what they make and what you will get if you engage with it instead of buying something else.  A company’s brand is shorthand for the feelings that an experience creates and the promises that a product or service brings with it. Our brand promises Quality and Service.  Experience our "Dream Factory" where whatever you can imagine is possible.
