I have just recently decided to get out some of my dog agility equipment and start training my little Shih Tzu, Turk!  I had started him in agility a couple years ago and life got in the way and now I am back!  
 

If you don't know much about the sport, it is an amazingly fun sport for the dog and the owner both.  It keeps you both active and it is especially good for dogs with high energy!   The sport began in the late 1970's and it has been contagious across the country and even the world! 

 

It is a very competitive sport and was designed to test the training skills and handling skills of the person training his dog. If you aren't familiar it is also a timed obstacle course, so the pace is very past.  It is an extrememly fun spectator sport as well.  

 

I highly recommend this sport to any dog lover who has a desire to show their dog and their dog has a high energy level.  Dogs who love to run seem to adore this sport.  You can see the passion and excitement in their faces as they run through the weave poles, jump through the tires and hurdle the jumps!    It’s fun to be had by all!

 

My little Shih Tzu, Turk just absolutely goes bonkers over this.  He loves jumping and will do anything to please me and be rewarded with a treat!   Turkey hot dogs are the treat of choice for my little guy!   That's him in the picture above. I think he is in shock that I got the equipment out.  It's been too long! 

 

There is much involved in this sport that the spectator doesn’t realize.  It is a bit of a ballet for the dog handler as much practice is involved due to the hundreds of different patterns and set ups of the courses.   The handler must learn how to properly cue their dog and know from which side of the obstacle to be on, at any given point, engaging them to cross in front of and behind the dog as he in running at full tilt!    It can be quite the dance routine!

 

The handler must learn the speed of the dog and the timing and know when to cross, when to hold and when to cue them to take the next obstacle, as the whole event is timed and the clock ticks on no matter what!

 

From the very first time I took Turk to Burlington, North Carolina to the Dogtown Training Academy I knew we were both hooked!   His passion was a great as mine and it would be hard to deprive him of something that he loves so much a minute more!  

 

Our teacher at the academby,  May Isenhour-Long is abosolutely wonderful at training both the dog and the handler to learn agility and get show ready.  We look forward to seeing her again soon as well! 

 

We haven’t shown yet in agility as we were spending time in the obedience ring a couple years but we are ready now to venture out into the agility world!   We both have the need for speed!

 

If you are considering doing agility with your dog, I highly recommend obedience training first as your dog will be off leash in the agility ring so you need to have a very obedient dog that will stay, and wait and sit on command, and also be loose by your side.  The obedience training is just great so that you have a well rounded relationship with your dog and he or she understands all your verbal commands.

 

Obedience is a fun way to start showing your dog to begin with as it gets you familiar with being in the ring and familiarizes your dog with being around crowds of people as well as a lot of other dogs.    Dogs actually do like to please their owners and they are happier when they are well trained because their owner is happier.

 

Perhaps you have had an interest in showing your dog and haven’t had the resources to do so.  While it’s not an expensive sport it does involve show fees and training and some travel, and of course there are the Breed classes which can take you to new levels of showing costs. 

 

 Maybe you are like me and your dogs are your kids and you would love to be home with them more.  Connect with me at secrettofreedom.net for information and a free video on how I create money from home and spending more time at home with my dogs.  I like to think of it as Plan B.

 

Life is full of surprises and when the surprises come they aren’t always what we bargained for.   I can’t tell you how many heartbreaking stories I have heard of people losing their farms and their farm animals as well as their dogs due to a divorce or some tragedy. 

 

Being prepared so that should the unthinkable happen, is the best advice I can give to anyone from my personal experience.   Connect with me at secrettofreedom.net and learn how you can create money from home and have your little nest egg just in case the unthinkable happens to you.

Raising the Bar

0 Comments

I read a lot and have learned a lot from highly successful people.   They all seem to say the same thing about people and their dreams.  Most people will never see their dreams because of their false beliefs and they aren’t willing to do what it takes to create them

 

Most people have a lottery mentality and are looking for a quick fix!  Well who wouldn’t want that?  Unfortunately it’s not the answer and you do actually have to do something in order to see your dreams.

 

The thing that baffles me the most is that a person is willing to go to a mundane job for 8 hours a day for the majority of their adult life making minimal pay, and yet they aren’t willing to make a commitment to something they are passionate about in order to have their freedom.

 

Our ancestors fought for our freedom and what happened to the rest of society.  They have gotten lazy.   Countless hours in front of the television that is a sure sign of depression, no doubt and still no one can figure their future is riding on their commitment to resolve.  

 

Resolutions aren’t even resolutions because to resolve something is to commit without exceptions.   Most New Year’s resolutions are broken by the middle of January which is precisely why many don’t even make resolutions anymore.  Of course they never actually did to begin with.

 

I like to keep them going throughout the year, because I know the pressure of the holidays to commit to them, and how difficult it can be to keep them up.   I resolved a long time ago to my health and fitness and I have stuck to it. 

 

The reason being is willpower doesn’t last, but rituals do.   Raise your standards and you will commit to them by developing new habits or rituals.  

 

Notice how many years you have been doing the same thing from the time you get out of bed each morning.  You can do it almost blindfolded or in your sleep.  You get up and follow the same footprints almost identically because they have become rituals. 

 

So why not begin new ones.   The quicker you begin them the sooner they become a ritual that you will do automatically.  Consider the amount of time it took you to create the ones you currently have.   It probably wasn’t very long.  Usually 28 days is the time to create a new habit and drop the old. 

 

Each day make an conscious effort to take the necessary steps towards a new habit and you will drop the old bad ones.   Sleeping late is a big one, and staying glued to the television.  These two are huge clues that you are probably experiencing some depression.  

 

People use different outlets to escape their inner most feelings or turmoil inside and there are plenty of addictions outside of drugs and alcohol.  One can be addicted to chaos, addicted to the television and just addicted to sleep.

 

When you begin to get excited about life again, you won’t want to sleep late, you won’t want to stay glued to the television because you will want to take advantage of every free moment to go after your dreams when you make a decision to commit.

 

If anything I have said has struck a chord with you and you are ready to give yourself a fighting chance with your dreams, then connect with me at secrettofreedom.net.

 

Nothing will ever take you to your dreams but YOU.   You have to take the first steps and give yourself a chance.  Don’t put a time limit on yourself by saying “I’ll give it a try”, because try means you won’t do it.  The only time restriction you should put on yourself is “I will never give up” and just stay the course.

 

There will be obstacles, but that is for your growth and necessary to take you to the next level.    Enjoy your journey and LIVE life along the way!   It's time to raise the bar!

OWN THE WORLD YOU WALK IN

 

We’ve got one life to live and you better take ownership of it or it will swallow you whole!  

 

The minute I quit caring what others thought about me, was the minute I started really enjoying my life.     You can spend your entire life under a microscope with your friends and family or you can let go and go after your destiny!  

 

You can’t go after your dreams if you are worried about what others will think of you.   You have to let go of the need to be perfect and be perfectly imperfect the way you are.  I borrowed that from a man I admire, Aaron Rashkin and he is so dead on!

 

We are all imperfect beings living in an imperfect world, and yet we are perfectly imperfect the way we are.   Sure we must constantly work on ourselves for growth and to take our lives to the next level but we have to get comfortable in our own skin.  If you are going to OWN your life and OWN the part of the world you walk in then you better let go of caring what others think!

 

You are going to get some grief when you take a stand, but would you rather stay back with the people who are holding you back.  I was listening this morning to a wonderful sermon by Joel Osteen and he said something to the effect of “stop playing it small to keep the people around you happy, and start playing big to see your destiny!”   

 

Do you want to WIN in this game of life or do you want to FIT IN with the people who are holding you back?   The choice is yours and it’s time to take ownership of your gifts and talents by unleashing them!   Use them and let them take you to your dreams! 

 

Maybe you are ready to rock and roll but someone around you is holding you back!  Fear is paralyzing and trust me when I say that when you let go of the people that have a stronghold of you, God will take you places you have never dreamed of.  
 

It is definitely your divine right to live out your destiny so let go of the fear, let go of the chains that have held you bondage and go sow and reap your dreams!   Who cares what others think!  They are more afraid of life than you!

 

IF you have gotten some value from my blog today, and I do hope you have, please feel free to share this and pay it forward.  Also connect with me to start your journey to your dreams at secrettofreedom.net.

Have we become so self destructive within ourselves that we use ever fiber of our being to sabotage our own inner greatness and self worth? 

 

For isn't it our self worth that we are seeking and that others seem to so desperately seek to destroy.   

 

And why do we allow others to destroy.  Is t it human nature to go into fight or flight mode?  So many retreat when all that IS was right before them waiting to be nurtured and waiting to become whole.

 

We seek to be inspired and yet what is inspiration anyhow?.  Isn't is one's own projection of how life should be and secretly while we are all moved by it, we hide behind an innocent fear, that should we step into our power, all the GO LIGHTS are suddenly on and that scares us to death.   One would sooner crawl back into his own self sabotage and destruction than have to perform and outshine his peers. 

 

This is where the "Let Go and Let GOD" so enchantingly comes into play.    Allowing one's own spirituality and essence of being in one with God is what so brilliantly  maneuvers our heart's desires back into play again, all GO LIGHTS on, once again forging ahead. 

 

Are you meandering around with your dream?  Perhaps you are in fear of separation from what was once so familiar?   All too often we fear leaving the familiar, no matter how dark it may be, stealing away into the unkown seems quite frightening at the very least. 

 

We are never truly alone and if you spirtual that this you already know.  But do you BELIEVE IT?   Believing and seeing it is first!   Then the dreams shall come.  Take a flying leap of faith today by connecting with me at secrettofreedom.net and dare to explore your innermost dreams that you dare to dream.  Once alive in your heart, then the only thing stopping you IS YOU!  

 

I hope my blog here today has touched your heart, the part of your heart that needs surrendering.  It's time so surrender and let yourself go by exploring your infinite possiblitites in this world  Connect with me at secrettofreedom.net and I look forward to connecting with you soon.

 

Enjoy your journey.  Put your GO LIGHTS on!   It's what we are here for.

I like this subject because I have experienced this most of my life.  I have always been one to go after my dreams and anyone that knows me well, my friends and family will tell you that.   One thing is for sure I am a quiet compassionate person and have never tooted my horn enough.  Perhaps I should have.  

 

I mean if you are going to be lashed out at for your accomplishments, you may as well be arrogant so people can justify their hatred.   But that never has been my style and as far as most of my accomplishements in this world, I have stuffed them down inside of me, for that very reason. 

 

What has changed?   Well not enough and yet everything.  It took me years but I finally came to love and appreciate myself and one thing I have learned is that we are here to accomplish our dreams and live out our divine purpose and if that upsets someone's basket, then perhaps they are the arrogant ones.

 

Never apologize for your God given gifts and talents and absolutely never apoligize for who you are, and the fact that you choose to use your talents.   I spent my life worrying about what others thought of me, and I finally, through learning from mentors that you will never experience your true journey until you BE your true self.

 

I had to write about this today, as I notice people on social media and in the workplace, who are struggling in their hearts with their own issues and therefore lash out at others.   Accusatory people are merely projecting their inner issues out on others.  They are the ones who usually accuse others of being arrogant.

 

We’ve all been there, being lashed out at, and there is not a lot you can do about it but send them love and light, is what I say.  Course, sometimes that seems to make them angrier.  I think they just have to be angry when that’s the place they want to be, so all your efforts to comfort them won’t work, and so you move on.

 

Maybe you are working on your dreams and have made some obvious changes in your life, and it’s bringing out strange behavior in people around you.  They normally are friendly with you and all of the sudden you’ve noticed an uneasiness in them. 

 

What’s happening is they see the change in you, and while they may know you are working on bettering your life, they feel a bit threatened by the new rituals you have created. 

 

When we make a decision to change, and those around us stay the same, it does tend to cause a little friction.  You have forced them to do a little self inventory and they may not like what they are seeing within themselves.  This happens to everyone who makes the commitment to go on a different journey and you just learn to be strong and keep pressing forward.

 

If this sounds like something you are going through and would like to be part of a team of people who are all working toward their dreams, then feel free to connect with me at secrettofreedom.net.  I will get you some information on how you can start working towards your dreams.

 

People will even accuse you of being arrogant or say you think you are better than them.   That's their insecurity and not yours.  Leave it alone.  There again as long as you stay on your path to better yourself and help others by being an inspiration then you are on the right path. 

 

You can’t control what others will say or how they will respond but what you can control is how you react.   Be as kind as you can and keep pressing forward to do what you know is right in your heart.

 

One think you DON’T do is let them steal your dreams or your journey.  Stay focused on your dreams and things will work out for the best.

 

There is a difference between arrogance and being confidant when you are working towards bettering your life.  If you are one who is on that path, and feel it threatens others, and it probably does, the best thing to do is keep on keeping it on.

 

If you let people steal your dreams and try to turn something beautiful you are doing, like change, then you will never accomplish your dream.  Change is beautiful so embrace it.  You have to let people and their comments go and just focus on what your intention is.  In good time they will work through their issues and so be it.

 

It’s not possible to get everyone's approval when you are on your journey to go after your dreams, and if you keep trying you will fail for sure.   You don’t need anyone’s approval, and always remember this.  When people point the finger at others in judgment, they got three fingers pointing back at them.  Be careful not to judge, because you more than likely are experiencing some inners issues of your own. 

 

This is why many feel the journey to success is going to be lonely, but if you can hang on and hold onto your dream, you will soon be surrounded by people who are on your same journey and you will have new friends.

 

Enjoy your journey and love your life!  Most of all enjoy being YOU!  I love what Tony Robbins says about being YOU.  He says, “Joy comes when you’re spontaneous by being who you really are!”    BE YOU! 

 

I hope you got some value out of my blog today.  I always speak from my heart and I am at perfect peace when I write.  I have and always will be a compassionate person, and it's not always to my advantage, but that is who I am.  I do love helping people and I love inspiring others to be the best they can be.  I am not perfect, but I love who I am becoming.   You can love me or hate me, the choice is yours!

 

If you did get some value, please share my blog and also if you would like to learn more about how you can create money from home, because maybe you have a dream and need a vehicle to get you there, then connect with me at secrettofreedom.net.

 

Again, enjoy your journey and enjoy being a follower of my blog.  Most of all, enjoy being YOU!
