It’s the thought that matters

It’s the thought that matters

How much of your life and riding is influenced by your thoughts? The answer is much more than you think! I have undergone some major changes in my personal life and, naturally, when big things happen to us, our mind goes into overdrive. As the changes unfolded, I...

Releasing the Pressure

Releasing the Pressure

There are many situations in our daily lives when the pressure is just too high for us to bear. It may be the pressure to perform, the pressure of expectation, and/or the pressure that we place ourselves under. We often experience the same with our riding, even though...

When Decisions Matter

When Decisions Matter

How to make decisions when they matter We are often faced with having to make decisions that affect our lives. Some of the decisions we make are of little consequence and therefore, if we get them wrong, it doesn’t matter.  But what about the ones that do matter? The...

Give up Your Goals

Give up Your Goals

If there's one thing we learned in the first half of 2021 it is that things won't go back to normal as quickly as we hoped. In fact, I think we all gradually realised that the old normal does not exist anymore and will never come back. So, how do we deal with such...

The Year That Changed us all

The Year That Changed us all

Towards the end of 2019 a lot of people seemed glad to see the end of what they described a tough year… Little did they know what ley ahead. First the devastating bushfires and then, well… COVID-19. But was 2020 really a terrible year?  I like to think it wasn't. It...

How to be a Good Learner

How to be a Good Learner

How do we keep learning? In a previous article I spoke about the importance of trusting your ‘gut feeling’ - the intuition you have of whether the advice is good for you - before you receive that advice. This time, I want to discuss what to do when you don’t have a...

Recovering Your Worth

Recovering Your Worth

How do you recover when someone questions your self-worth? I think we have all experienced moments when someone has made us feel unworthy. This sometimes takes the form of bullying, but other times it is very quiet and dismissive. Either way it hurts! Let’s be honest...

Taking Action – The Simple Guide

Taking Action – The Simple Guide

Ok, here it goes, I am saying the ‘P’ word... Procrastination! How often do we know we have to do something but we don’t do it? Or on the contrary, how often do we know that we SHOULDN’T do something but we still do it? One is procrastinating and the other is getting...

Three Steps to Developing Focus

Three Steps to Developing Focus

Developing Focus: We can ride with focus or we can ride while being distracted. The difference will be enormous. The distractions can come from your mind as well as from your environment. Here's a three-step mindset strategy to help you developing focus. First step:...

Being Good Enough

Being Good Enough

Internal and external validation: Do you know when you are doing a good job or do you rely on others telling you that you are? In my experience, many riders don’t trust themselves and, therefore, keep looking and craving other people’s praise. This in itself is not a...

Leaving ‘Some Day’ Island

Leaving ‘Some Day’ Island

Stop Procrastinating, make it happen! Do you live on ‘some day island’ or do you live every day as if it is your last? Do you catch yourself procrastinating? Too many people are putting things off, waiting for the right time when they have what they think they need in...

The Power of Change

The Power of Change

The power of change. Human beings are creatures of habit. Rather than looking for change, we generally prefer things to stay the same. However, change is an important part of growing and, therefore, necessary. If you keep doing the same things you will get the same...
