We all have one thing in common. We are all able to say that we have once in our lives, clouded our vision with the “shoulds” and “musts” of our everyday lives. We surround ourselves with our societal obligations that influence our success. So, I want whoever is reading this to reflect. Reflect back to your childhood. We all had our inspirations. We all had a clear goal. We imagined being in that very position. I came to this realization, when I met Nicky Ripley.
From two professions, Nicky has worked with horses and educational roles, sometimes in conjunction.
After having found out the possibility of having two diverse fields converge to one, I further questioned her background. She mentioned Horse Powered Literacy. A profession where she taught individuals the ability to read write and speak when applied to horses. “A horse never judges you on your ability, but it’s up to the individual to improve their abilities, in order to develop the leadership skills essential to guiding a horse.”
And so you may ask why I asked you to reflect? On the rocking horse, Nicky also dreamed of riding horses and helping others in any way. Of course, she found a way of doing so but at a large expense. I remember her explaining the demands of being able to operate the business. As the years went by, she devoted more time and energy into the “shoulds” and “musts” in life. To be able to offer these services to individuals free of charge for those in need as her ultimate goal was no longer in the equation at that point.
However, Nicky sat down with me and really shared her passion for Prosperity Of Life. How they’ve given her the guidance to look beyond the societal obligations and to focus on that vision you had once as a kid. Ultimately, it’s up to you to choose what you surround yourself with that influences your path to success.
It’s to harvest the good.
