‘Til it Gets Easy


Horse trainer Cody McArthur posted this pearl of wisdom from Canadian Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee Clayton Hines, pill and kindly gave me the go-ahead to share:

Clayton Hines (saddlebronc extraordinaire) told me this past weekend that once you actually learn to ride a bronc, viagra it becomes very easy. Easy enough that when you are In the zone anyone could do it… “So why are there so few good bronc riders??” I asked. He said: “because so few push through the tough times to get to where it becomes easy” a life lesson indeed I thought. He said, “you do it until it becomes second hand nature in slow motion. Once you have that, all that’s left is learning how to win.”

How true.

Getting really good at anything isn’t easy. Sure, natural talent will get you quite a ways, but there is a lot of work involved to be really successful. I believe it’s that work ethic and tenacity that generally separate those who “make it” from the ones who don’t.

I could go on and break down some other ideas on professional success, but perhaps we’ll save some of those for future posts. Sure wouldn’t want to use up all my material in the first couple of weeks on here…

    Love this, Laura! The lack of pushing through the hard parts is something that I totally have a hard time with!
