I hear and read about overnight success in business frequently. Particularly in the music industry, apparent unknowns are made famous almost overnight with a new song, style or band that is instantly popular.
Wow! If only folks in the horse business could be that lucky! It seems like the only way to be successful in the horse business is to keep showing up for work each day and practice, practice, practice.
But wait a minute, maybe overnight success is a total myth. Isn’t the music indusry responsible for affirming that the way to Carnegie Hall is practice…practice…
If you have read the background and bios of overnight successes, you probablly found the same central theme I found: More practice, practice, practice over years of nights.
Just like all businesses, the horse business requires trying new things, practice and making mistakes on the road to success. Learn from the mistakes and keep moving forward.
