Little boy Communication Lessons from a Horse

I will always remember my coworker Dunc from Denmark, SC, telling me that when he was nine years old, he and his grandfather were walking with a horse on his grandfather’s farm.

Dunc asked, “Granddaddy, how can a little boy like me walk a big horse like this?”

His grandfather answered. “Simple, son. You just take the horse gently by the reins and walk beside him. The moment, though, you stand in front of the horse, look him in the eyes, and pull on him, he won’t budge.”

I think of that lesson so often when dealing with relationships.
