The essence of her post was this: confidence is a skill like any other, so it must be trained like any other.
It makes so much sense.
Part of the training she (and the USOC) recommend is to write down a single line every single day of one positive accomplishment.
I can do that. It's measurable and manageable.
I didn't ride today (grrr! projects!) so I'll do a quick photo acheivement update. I took Izzy from this:
Five year old unstarted baby Izzy who reared up and almost kicked me in the head right after this was taken.
Eight year old broke Izzy who actually looks like a dressage (and occasionally jumping) horse.
We are going to do this together.
