Confidence, Trust and Try

I was talking with a client today about their horse. This horse is just getting started and is timid about people and his surroundings.

“Passion + Purpose = Prosperity.” What is the purpose of life?  That is the age old question.  A better question is what is your life’s purpose?  Everyone talks about the one thing that makes you tick.  Do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life is another comment.   I think some [...]
