On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Applying a “weekend warrior” Ultra Cyclist mentality to everyday life
  • The meditative properties of cycling
  • The power of pushing through repetitive tasks
  • How mastering the skill of “choice” can help grow any area of your life
  • Pain/pleasure decisions
  • The power of taking personal responsibility
  • Tuning into your internal dialogue

And so much more…

Jim’s nuggets of wisdom

“Every decision we make is based on pain and pleasure”

The importance of dialing in our awareness to our pain/pleasure trigger points

“We have a feeling which then drives our thinking. Actually, it’s the feeling-thinking trap that we get caught up in as human beings. As opposed to what really it should be is, thinking feeling”
