Problems, issues, setbacks, plateaus… we all have them… so the problem is not the problem:
It’s our attitude about the problem.
You see, when you look at a professional horse trainer, an instructor, an expert, a master, all we see is success and prosperity!
But that doesn’t mean these guys don’t face any challenges.
That’s because they are like an iceberg:
When we see an iceberg, all we see is the tip of the iceberg, which is 10%.
But a lot is going on beneath the surface: 90% ‼
So what people see when they look at a master is his outstanding knowledge and amazing skills: 10%.
But what they DO NOT see is all the hard work they have put into it to get there, plus the:
➕ heartfelt dedication,
➕ enormous amount of time
➕ repetition to create good habits
➕ drive to keep going no matter what
➕ and stamina to never quit!
That’s 90% of the game ‼
So when you see a master doing a piaffe or levade with his horse, you don’t see the many hours of training, years of schooling and many setbacks.
It’s the same in other disciplines:
- Thomas Edison ‘failed’ 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb.
- Football player David Beckham practiced 50,000 free kicks as a kid in the local park to be able to make the 61 goals that were visible to the whole world.
- Tennis champion Andre Agassi hit 1,000,000 balls a year so he could win 4x at Wimbledon, 8x Grand Slam and 1x at the Olympic Games.
So it’s not an ‘inborn’ amazing talent they all have:
Their excellence is grown via effort and practice.
So to become a true master, we have to put in the effort, we have to be willing to freeze the ice below the surface. so that we can shine above the surface.
In the article about the ST Pyramid, you can read more about how to freeze your ice:

Discover The Power Of Mindset
Since childhood, Yasmain and Yolain have been fascinated by horses. For 21 years, they had been twin sisters and best friends. They were identical in nearly every way. They had the same grades in school and wore the same clothes. They were both good riders and had great fun with horses.
At the age of 21, they were still similar in appearance and outlook, but then something changed…
- Physically seen, Yasmain’s weight is still the same as it was when she was 21. Yolain has gained 20 pounds in the past 10 years.
- Mentally seen, Yasmain sleeps well every night, while Yolain’s worrying keeps her awake.
- Energetically seen, Yasmain feels full of life, but Yolain is often very tired.
- Spiritually seen, Yasmain feels like she’s living a purposeful and fulfilled life, but Yolain is unhappy.
And they don’t see each other anymore ….
How could this happen?
