Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey, offers Equine-Guided Success Principle #1 as a way to achieve personal or professional goals in the New Year.
TOMALES, CA – January 08, 2018 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “How To Use Equine-Guided Success Principles To Achieve Goals.” Ms. Aubrey elaborates on how and why the energy of pretense makes horses restless and as she says, “potentially dangerous.”
Aubrey writes, “With the New Year and the thought of fresh possibilities stirring through our minds, I offer the first principle from equine-guided success principles to help you achieve your goals this year.” She continues adding, “Whether you are working toward the achievement of personal or professional goals, there are many things I have learned from watching humans and horses work together.”
According to Aubrey, “The first equine-guided success principle is: Take 100% responsibility for yourself.” She elaborates, “That means 100% responsibility for all of your thoughts, feelings, actions, behaviors, assumptions and projections, etc… That means you will absolutely have to let go of the ‘blame game’.”
“When things aren’t going the way we pictured or hoped,” says Aubrey, “many humans tend to blame other people or things. Typically the first ones we blame are our parents. Next in line as the recipients of our blame are our spouse, the kids, our boss, our colleagues, the economy, and/or the weather.” She adds, “If none of those excuses satisfy, then we go further out and blame the stars for not being properly aligned.”
Aubrey writes, “If you ask a horse to take a walk with you, and the horse refuses, you can go ahead and blame the horse.” She continues, “You can say that the horse is being stubborn, the horse doesn’t want to work and the horse just wants to eat. You can even take the stance of not wanting to be pushy.” “Some people,” says Aubrey, “go so far as to think that, “maybe the horse doesn’t like me.” This is typical of what many people do in life when people don’t act the way we think they should or we don’t achieve the success we think we deserve.”
As Aubrey points out, “The truth of what’s going on with the horse is very different. Horses feel an energetic split when something is off in the environment. When people are ‘pretending’, rather than acknowledging what is true, or when they are scared, anxious, bored or indifferent, they often put on a happy face, pretending to be strong, engaged or fearless. Horses feel the energy in the same way they would feel a predator that is pretending it is not hiding behind the bush ready to pounce. So in that moment of pretense, the horse doesn’t feel safe in the presence of the human.”
