What you should take from away Lesson #3:

Focus on perfecting your weaknesses.

You are only as strong as your weakest link….

Or as I find myself repeating over and over again in teaching riding lessons,
you have to practice what is hard to get better.

Focus is a major key to success in any endevour but the point I am trying to drive home here is don’t get distracted by your strengths, let your ego get in the way, and forget to perfect your weaknesses (again every little thing counts).

Focus on the right things. What the "truth" is of your ride.

Quotes on perfecting weaknesses…

“When Michael Jordan first came out, they said all he can do is dunk and he doesn’t win championships. So Michael Jordan went and perfected his jump shot and became one of the best in the game. That’s what Annika does year in, year out; she finds her weaknesses and makes them better.” Meg Mallon

“You cannot run away from a weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?”
Robert Louis Stevenson

“My big weaknesses (in the past) have been a lack of preparation, a lack of knowledge and perhaps not enough confidence and afraid of mistakes. 
I need to stop trying to be perfect and just worry about becoming better.”
Sasha Cohen

“A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it.
He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. 
It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, 
according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, 
he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. 
He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, 
not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. 
This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. 
Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), 
the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph.”
James Allen (New Zealander Statesman. Minister of defense (1912-20), 1855-1942)
