    041 | Getting Beyond the Surface of Judgement [Monday Morning Motivation]

    "When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself." -Wayne Dyer
    In today's society where cancel culture is accepted widely and some believe you either have to take a stance on one side or another- I find the most reasonable truth exists somewhere in the middle. You see, your judgement of others can limit you and can save you. As people we are naturally wired for continuous growth and creativity while also maintaining a desire to survive and live. Judgement is there to serve both. Not all Judgement is bad and not all judgement is good. So it is time we get Beyond the Surface of Judgement in today's episode.

    About Craig Moore & Katie Ketterhagen:
    Craig is a first generation horseman who spent much of his childhood inside of his mother’s beauty shop. He is the youngest son of Joe and Kim Moore. He started riding horses at 13 and became a team roper who competed in high school and college rodeo. After college he walked away from horses and spent his days golfing and nights as a paramedic. After some years doing that he realized how much he missed the horses and the western way of life. He currently lives, works, and runs a training business with his fiancé Katie Ketterhagen in May, Texas. Katie grew up riding and showing Arabians, and started training her own horses in her early teens. She spent two years at the University of Findlay in Ohio, majoring in Western Equestrian Studies. In 2012 she trained her first Mustang for an Extreme Mustang Makeover, and became hooked into the Mustang world. She has since competed in 10 EMM’s and 2 TIP Challenges. Craig and Katie train horses of all breeds for the public and aspire to one day be world class clinicians so they can help as many horses and people as possible.

    036 | Building A Beautiful Future with Intentionality & Action [Monday Morning Motivation]

    Most of us want and desire the end results and the majestic beauty that is earned by becoming a master artisan. The fact of the matter is, most of us have not even learned the basic building blocks and become the mechanic in developing the foundation for us to launch into the creative artistry of our chosen craft. 
    This morning we go deep and get tactical into the key foundational building blocks we must have for building a beautiful future, the tactical questions we must actually answer, not just think about, and cover how we can apply this lesson into our direct lives. 
    Questions from Today's Episode:
    What is your vision or goal? Why is this your vision or goal? What problem does it solve or purpose does it serve? What is your long term goal or vision? (And be specific when answering this. It is OK if your answer changes later, that is what reflection is for, but for now you need to answer this questions as specific as possible) What is your immediate short term goals? (These goals should be very specific, you should be able to measure your progress systematically, they should be realistically attainable, they should be relevant to your quest and they must have have start and end dates) And finally, what is your plan of action for how you are going to get started?

Claire Sexauer ,

Inspiring and knowledgeable

So glad I found this podcast! Very inspiring in every aspect of the equestrian world and Colton is so knowledgeable! Listen to it while I ride and often get reminders on how and why I’m training and doing what I love! The BEST equestrian podcast for all disciplines!

HorsesHealHearts ,

Helpful, Insightful and Inspiring!

Awesome podcast...I listen to it as I arrive at the ranch, put my boots on, and feed the horses. It helps get me in the mindset of learning, rather than in my old mindset of conquering tasks. Thank you for putting this out there for us all and for your positivity!

littleredwagon ,
