Recipe for Change

Did you ever have one of those moments of sudden insight?

I had one today, sitting in a bookshop, sipping coffee. (Yes, a bookshop that serves coffee – what could be better?)

A woman at the next table was on the phone, giving the person on the other end of the line directions to her house. I wasn’t even consciously listening but I suddenly realised that, no matter where you are, you can find your way to where you want to go as long as you fulfill a few basic criteria.

First, you have to know where you are. It sounds fundamental, but without knowing your starting point you cannot accurately plan your route.

Then, you have to know where you want to go. Again, it seems like a no-brainer, but if you don’t know where you want to go, how are you ever going to get there?

Once you know where you are and you know where you want to go, all you have to do is turn yourself to face the direction of your destination and keep moving forward until you arrive!

It’s that simple!

You will need to keep checking a couple of things regularly as you go along, such as, are you still moving in the right direction and are you sure that you still want to go where you thought you wanted to go when you set out?

Assuming that you hold your course and don’t change your mind or wander off on a tangent, you are guaranteed to arrive at your destination.

This formula works equally well if the destination is a real place, a better you or something material you want to manifest.

Try it!



In 2015, I set up Horses Connect, a non-profit company based in the West of Ireland dedicated to helping people of all ages, with all kinds of life and other challenges.  After a colorful and adventurous life (career-wise)  I now work with people and horses. I teach and I learn – boy, do I learn!

Horses connect us to our true value and full potential in a unique and powerful way and it is my privilege to facilitate that connection. We design a range of equine-assisted programs for individuals and groups, and our equine team help us deliver those programs.

I am particularly interested in personal development and was blogging about the topic long before blogging became popular, or profitable.

I have a Masters in Writing from NUI, Galway and tons of other random qualifications.
