Get back on that horse sooner than later unless you want to always have that nagging fear that you could get bucked again. Easier said than done you say? Here are a few starters to get you out of that dusty funk and get back into the game 100%.

  • Create a list of ten things that make you laugh. A hearty, throw your head back laugh is the best medicine. Try it. Laughter is good medicine.
  • Pick up a favorite inspirational book such as “Secrets of a Millionaire Mind” or “Lessons in Mastery” and read a couple of chapters.
  • Have three or four people on speed dial on your mobile device that inspire you when you talk with them. Call them when it’s the day of the horse.
  • Take 30 minutes and exercise. Work out that frustration. It’s good for your body and your mind.
  • Close your eyes and breathe….deeply and slowly for 5-10 minutes. Relax your shoulders. Shake out your hands and legs. Let go of that negative energy.
  • Write it out. This is my personal favorite. Pen to paper is a wonderful way to express all those words that you shouldn’t say but really want to. Once you have everything on paper, set a match to your script. Amazing how good that feels and you didn’t have to unload that on anyone but that little piece of paper.
  • If you are a golfer, go to the driving range. Showing that golf ball who’s boss will do wonders for your frustration level.
  • Put your phone down and get outside with your favorite furry friend for a good high-spirited walk in the sunshine.

Now that you have a few ideas on how to get back into the saddle, practice them. Develop your own list. Get back to 100% as quickly as possible. We can’t afford to let negative thoughts and energy get the better of us.
