What if I told you that the simple daily practice listed below 👇 has been shown by the latest neuroscience to make you a WHOPPING 94% more likely to turn your goals into reality for you? Well, it's true, so I recommend you grab a cuppa, a journal, and then read on.... ☕️📒
Some of you know how I invite you each week to sit down with a cuppa and take some time to plan your week ahead, well there is a very good, science backed reason why I ask this - and why I make this an important, non-negotiable practice for myself!
Well this week, the first Monday of February, now that the dust has settled on the holiday season, and a BRAND-NEW decade begins in earnest, I invite you to join me in planning out your goals and dreams for this new year, 2020. What would the most amazing, miraculous year have looked like to you if you were suddenly unbound from your old limiting beliefs and limiting habits? What have you been holding close to your chest, not quite daring to believe is possible for you? Go deep. Get bold and brave and dare to dream big…
✨What would you be celebrating on December 31st?
✨What would you be saying good-bye to?
✨What was the big change that you were finally able to commit to and practice daily?
Then expand outwards... Have you defined your dream for this decade? How would your dream life look at the end of 2029 if after 3600 days of small, daily actions you had managed to have the most amazing decade of your life, and you had managed to take 3600 small action steps over the decade to make this happen for you?
Write these all down!!! If I told you that there was one simple thing you could do that would give you a WHOPPING 94% increase your ability to make your goals a reality according to neuroscience, you'd go ahead and do it right?!?
You might not believe me, but it’s as SIMPLE as WRITING THEM DOWN!! Physically in your own handwriting on a piece of paper! Then tell a friend, you know the person who will lovingly support you and hold you accountable as you progress towards this goal (hint - this person is probably the person you image calling first to celebrate when you do achieve your goal), and to make yourself 94% more likely to achieve your goal you need to write it down daily. Reinforce what you are working towards EVERY day!
Whatever YOUR dreams may be... owning your dream farm or your dream horse, riding your first Medium test or, flying change, or even your first Grand Prix! It might be as simple and awesome as being able to canter confidently out of an area, completely free of fear....! It's YOUR dream and you get to choose what holds the most meaning and value for you! You get to determine your own definition of success!✨
Remember what-ever your dream is, you wouldn't be having it if you didn't already have the capability and capacity to make it happen for you! It’s just about committing to it and taking the daily step after step actions to make it a reality for you.
For me I'm going to be writing down what a successful decade to me would look like and it goes something a little like this: a hugely successful decade to 2029 would see me having helped over 360,000 riders ditch fear and nerves in their riding, and their lives FOR GOOD!
These gorgeous riders would be courageously pursuing their goals and dreams unhindered by all the BS that had been previously running unchecked in their minds... but MORE IMPORTANTLY these individuals would then be showing-up and helping all the riders that they in-turn come into contact with - and showing, modeling and help these to do exactly what they have done... rebuilding their mindset and breaking free of fear and limiting beliefs.
Just imagine what an impact that would be, if each of these riders just helped one or two more riders, who then go and make their own ripples in the world too... Because that's how we change the world… by making lots of little splashes that go on to have HUGE ripple effects...
Happy riding, dreaming and WRITING IT DOWN!
Hello, I'm Stef Winwood, and I love to help riders regain their riding confidence and ditch fear and nerves in the saddle - for good! As a rider, breeder, coach and ex 'nervous nelly' myself, I know how debilitating and frustrating fear and nerves can be, especially when they are robbing us of enjoying our pride and joy - our magnificent horses!
Ditching fear and nerves takes so much more than just hours in the saddle, it takes powerful mindset and strategy work off the horse to rebuild how you think and feel on your horse.
