The Cowboy Loss   1 comment

The Cowboy Loss — Image by kenne

Losing is only temporary and not all encompassing.
You must simply study it, learn from it,
and try hard not to lose the same way again.
Then you must have the self-control to forget about it.

as imaginary beasts in some epic
fourteenth-century Scottish poem.”

Cowboys are known, to have a way of their own,
to sort out a sense of fair play.
You ride for the brand, or a shake of the hand,
that’s always been “The Cowboy Way”.

“The Cowboy Way” is not a phrase,
to be abused and misconstrued.
It’s a way of life, a reason to fight,
it’s a lifestyle through and through.

— from “The Cowboy Way” by Jim Liles

There never was a cowboy who couldn’t be throwed

there never was a horse who couldn’t be rode.

Bareback Riding

JC Trujillo – “Winning is 80% mental!”

“If you want to be world-class you must raise the bar to raise your game.”

It’s easy to say “I’m good enough,” but there is a big difference between “wondering vs knowing” you are good enough. If you want to ride with the stars you have to adopt their life style.

Attitude: A respectable humble champion is a jewel in the sport of rodeo. He lets his riding represent his character and do the talking.

Obnoxious winners lose respect and friends faster than a rock can drop to the ground. In the end it’s the friends you have that count anyway.
