Horse Sense for the Leader Within: Are You Leading Your Life, or Is It Leading You?
Are You Leading Your Life, Or Is It Leading You?
Ariana demonstrates how horses reflect our patterns of behavior, thought, perceptions and performance in a thousand pounds of visual imagery. They show us the gap between how we actually present ourselves to others distinct from how we think we are being. They ask, "Who is leading?" and expect us to know what we care about and believe in ourselves. In so doing, they help us understand that leadership begins with the self we are. Horses teach us how to find self-acceptance in a world of judgment. As we learn to think more like a horse, we develop our intuitive imagination and can create new possibilities for our lives. Rather than focusing on what is wrong with us, we shift our attention towards what we are naturally good at. On this path of becoming, we focus on staying connected to what has meaning and purpose.
