My Particular Problem With Motivational Claptrap

“Claptrap” is such a great word, don’t you think?

This guy. Giving advice until he’s hoarse.
  1. Where did the boy find a talking horse?
  2. Why was the boy walking, if he could have been riding the horse?
  3. In order for taking individual steps to be a successful strategy toward reaching one’s goal, one must already know the way, and each step necessarily must move one closer to one’s goal. (This is my real nit to pick with the advice of the talking horse.)

Why was the boy walking, if he could have been riding the horse?
