Never give up & Always be thankful

These are two things I try to remember when things get tough. I know if I never give up, and strive for my goals, sooner or later something positive has to happen. I also try not to be so rigid in my approach that I'm unable to bend around obstacles, but never loosing sight of your ultimate goal is important.
The "always be thankful" attitude should help ensure I stay happy and motivated through the process....sometimes easier said then done. In trying to remember to be thankful, even in times of great stress, I remind myself that the only reason that I'm finding myself in a challenging situation is because I'm  moving towards my ultimate goal.
I understand that it could seem to be a "simple" approach, but heck, it works for me.
The never give up attitude comes easy for me, the gratitude thing is a lot more work. For anyone out there working towards a goal or a dream, dig in your heels and make it happen.

Getting it all started!

Welcome to my sometimes crazy, but never boring life. I invite you to follow me as I build a future for myself, and more importantly, my family in the Baker Creek area west of Quesnel BC. I'm not rich or University educated, but I am motivated and driven. I have spent equal parts of my life as a guide and a working cowboy throughout BC, I have now thrown down my rope at one of the most beautiful places in the world. We have partnered up with a great gal, Celine, and together we have formed Hidden Lake Guest Ranch. This will be our story, getting this business up and running, and sharing our experiences with the world. So keep checking in, at the very least it will be some what entertaining  and maybe you'll learn a thing or two. This is the start of our crazy ride.....so get your heels down and get ready for this hair-straight-back ride.
