Blogging is difficult for me. There is so much going on inside my head that I seem to not be able to decide on one thing to talk about. So, today I will simply be excited about some decisions, directions and goals. As you know, I am a Certified Health Coach. I work with people to realize their life and health goals in my step by step program that is client driven! I listen and I help keep my clients on track when it is so easy to “fall off the wagon”. I love this opportunity! I love working with people and seeing them find that life isn’t all stress and misery but about vitality and living life to the fullest…
What you may not know is that I am also an equestrian. I competed in the Pan American games a few years back and have competed all over. THIS is where my heart lies…they say take care of yourself first then you can help others. THIS is where I am the most whole-riding. And, not to brag, but I am good. Dressage is my forte and I know without a doubt that I can win-I have won.
So, here is my GOAL-this is what I am putting out the Universe and praying to God..
I will compete in the Olympics in dressage. Luckily age is not a determinate on being able to compete! I have been retired for quite a number of years so that I could have kids and raise a family but I am really ready to get back into it now.
I am good enough to win/medal and I can make it happen. Many things have to fall into place for this to become a reality. For instance-I need a major company/group/individual to invest in me to help fund/sponsor my training. It can happen, I just have to go out and market myself.
Second, I need a world class horse. I sold my own world class horse just after the Pan Am Games and will need to work on getting another-a winner. For this I will contact my old trainer and dear friend Scott Hassler of Hassler Dressage (world class person, trainer and rider). He is the one who got me where I was before and I know he can help get me there again.
How can I do this? You see, I have a niche that many others do not have. I can ride for my home ‘country” of the US Virgin Islands. I have a bit of an easier route to get on an Olympic team and I am going to prove that I am worthy. This does not mean that I will not fight to be among the best in the world anyway, just that my competition for getting on the team is a bit of an easier route as I will be one of the only ones looking for a spot-but that does not mean the the USVI just gives a spot away…au contraire-they expect winning and world class scores.
The great thing about that is that is I can be an asset for an owner because of this. You allow me to campaign one of your world class breeding stallions, I take him to the Olympics and win on him and your breeding fee just skyrocketed-the worth of the horse just skyrocketed (I mean just to have an Olympic horse whether you win or not is a huge asset)-can you imagine the marketing they would be able to have???
So, this is my GOAL. I will work hard to try to see it fulfilled-this is where my soul lies. This is where I am at my best! Let the games begin!
In good health…
