9 Ways to Maintain Holistic Wellness

by Liz Jansen

All systems have to work together for a machine to operate a maximum efficiency. It matters not that your gas tank is full if your tires are worn out or your battery is dead. Fuel, electrical, hydraulic and mechanical systems all need to be functioning well to achieve safe and effective performance.

body-mind-and-spiritYour physical body is the home for your spirit. Does it not make sense then to respect whom you are by giving it all the ingredients it needs to thrive? That means practicing holistic wellness, going beyond focusing on physical health to the emotional, mental and spiritual. Body, mind and spirit are inextricably connected, so neglecting any one will affect the whole.

9 practices that nourish body mind and spirit

  1. Exercise. While a yoga practice is particularly effective as it addresses body and spirit, any exercise is beneficial. It keeps you physically fit, improves your mood and increases energy levels.
  1. Eat a balanced diet. Consuming a diet high in fruits and vegetables, reducing processed sugars, avoiding salt and drinking lots of water is not only healthier for your body, it also nourishes the mind.
  1. Sleep. Adequate sleep is crucial to brain performance. Scrimping on sleep leads to diminished mental acuity, increased stress and grouchiness. Get enough sleep and you’ll notice yourself making wiser choices.
  1. Hike. Spending time in nature connects you with whom you are. Add in exercise – like a walk on the beach or a hike through the woods, and it’s a perfect holistic nutrient.
  1. Socialize. Humans, even introverts, are social beings. Laughing, playing, having adventures with friends elevates your moods, changes your perspective and increases your sense of well-being.
  1. Follow your heart. When I ignore my inner guide, I feel miserable – in all ways. Your intuition is there for a reason, guiding you to do what’s right for you. Listening to it leads you to
  1. Spend time alone. Quiet time is essential to staying connected with who you are. It’s only by cutting out all the outside chatter and quieting the business of your mind, that you create the stillness needed to remain grounded, centered and connected to who you are.
  1. Show compassion. Random acts of kindness benefit the recipient, but they’ve also been shown to create positive health effects.
  1. Go for a motorcycle ride. Freedom, independence, nature, fresh air, wind, sunshine and friends – it just doesn’t get any better.

Body mind and spirit are interrelated so neglecting one will affect the whole. Adopting practices that nurture all three keep you healthy, happy and powerful.

10 steps to overcoming failure

by Liz Jansen

It’s a shock. You’ve never had to overcome failure before. It looked so easy. Others do it seemingly with ease, and you assumed that you too would be successful.

Taking on stretch goals teaches you more about yourself than the technical components of the course. For prospective motorcycle riders, that often includes overcoming disappointment, discouragement and limiting beliefs about Self.

overcome-faiureWhile these illustrations draw from motorcycling , the applications are universal.

10 Steps to Overcome Failure

  1. Confirm your motivation. Make sure this is something you want to do for our own sake. If you’re doing it because someone else wants you to, you think someone else wants you to, or everyone else is doing it, think again. Motorcycling is not for everyone. There’s too much at stake to put yourself in a position that isn’t for you.
  1. Adjust your self-talk. Look at what you told yourself going into the course. If you told yourself you’ll never pass because, “I fail at everything.” Or “I’m not mechanical.” Or “ I’m too old.” Or whatever other reason you used to set yourself up for failure, you succeeded. Adjust your perspective and create constructive, positive affirmations. Start by getting the word “failure” out of your vocabulary.
  1. Don’t take it personally. So you didn’t succeed the first time. It’s a hard blow. All it means is that you didn’t pass the test the first time – and there could be a myriad of reasons, not the least of which is your own learning style. Are you going to crumble with defeat or learn the lessons and enjoy what comes after?
  1. Don’t make assumptions. Calibrating yourself against others is counter-productive. It’s hard when most of the class passes and you don’t, but you don’t know their background, learning styles or relevant experience.
  1. Accept personal accountability. There’s a tendency to blame others when things go wrong. You try and exonerate yourself because you had a poor instructor, there was something wrong with the motorcycle or another student distracted you. In the end, you were at the controls and weren’t ready to be on the road. Yet.
  1. Focus on what you accomplished. A LOT of learning happens between the start and end of the course. Look at what you did learn and build on your success.
  1. Understand what went wrong. If you’ve decided this is something you want to do, work on your areas for improvement. For new riders, it’s usually picking up your speed, training your eyes where to focus, mastering the controls – or getting over test anxiety. All of this is compounded by the beliefs you have about your ability to succeed. (See #2)
  1. Practice. There’s nothing like saddle time under the tutelage of a qualified instructor to build skills and confidence. Build a solid skill base by taking advantage of practice sessions offered by many programs. Back that up with practice in a vacant parking lot, preferably not alone.
  1. Enjoy. It’s all part of the adventure, your present and your life’s road. Enjoy the experience, the lessons it teaches you and the people it introduces to your life. Look for the gifts. They’re there.
  1. Try again. Muster up your courage and go back and do it again. If it’s something you want to do, you will be successful. Many riders, who weren’t successful the first time, have gone on to enjoy tens, even hundreds of thousands of miles of exhilarating motorcycling experiences.

You can accomplish whatever your heart is telling you to do. You are learning the lessons you are meant to learn. As hard as that can be to accept, you will be stronger for the experience, and ready for what you are meant to do. Even ride a motorcycle.

12 Essentials for your Emergency Tool Kit

Most riders dread the thought of a motorcycle breakdown. Not only are they inconvenient and potentially costly, they can create safety and security risks. Routine maintenance and pre-ride inspections go a long way in preempting them. While you can’t be prepared for, or even imagine, every possibility, it’s wise to be prepared for the most likely.

small__5364124040The longer your tour and the more remote your area of travel, the more important it is to carry these essentials. They’re compact, lightweight and any inconvenience in packing them is offset by their potential benefit.

12 Essentials for your Emergency Tool Kit

  1. Multi-headed screwdriver. Small and compact, it comes in handy for a myriad of uses both on and off the bike.
  1. LED Flashlight. Whether you’ve run out of daylight and need to check a map or want to check the wear on your brake pads, it’s invaluable.
  1. Motorcycle jumper cables. I needed to use these once during a group ride. I shut of the engine with my kill switch and left my ignition on, then went on a winery tour. When I came out my battery was dead, but help was available and I was soon on my way.
  1. Assorted Allen keys. The essentials should be in your bike’s tool kit. Check to make sure you’ve got the sizes you’re most likely to need.
  1. Assorted box and crescent wrenches. As with Allen keys, check your tool kit for those most likely to be needed for your bike.
  1. Fuel line or siphoning hose. Running out of gas is usually avoidable with good planning; yet it happens. A gas station you thought was out in the middle of nowhere was closed up and you need to continue. You won’t go anywhere without fuel.
  1. Multi-tool. Another handy gadget that can make a big difference between go and no-go.
  1. Fasteners. Tie-wraps, electrical tape, duct tape. Engine vibrations and ordinary use is tough on brackets, fittings and cable housing. These can get you by in a pinch.
  1. Spare fuses. A blown fuse can leave you stranded; at a minimum, it is inconvenient. I learned this after blowing a fuse on my heated gear during a long-distance cold-weather ride. Had I not had an appropriate fuse with me, I’d have had to delay travel until I could find one.
  1. Replacement brake light and headlights. Most times this is an easy on-the spot fix – and you’ll have the tools above which help you remove the lenses.
  1. Roadside assistance. Invest in a CAA Plus, AMA Membership Card – any that cover you and your bike for emergency towing. When you invest in AMA, you’re also investing in protecting your freedom.
  1. Owner’s manual. While it may not have a great deal of detail, it will have the basics, including specifications for your bike. It’s great to have while traveling – your bike may decide to need maintenance well out of range of any OEM service shops. I tuck mine under the seat so it’s always with the bike.

While obviously important for solo riders, it’s good to carry them all the time, even when riding with others. If anyone has a breakdown, it affects the whole group.

Getting to know your bike through routine maintenance and model-specific online forums can acquaint you with the problems you’re most likely to have. Carrying these essentials in your emergency tool kit can help prevent unexpected events from interfering with your ride.

10 Reasons to Put the Brakes on Learning to Ride a Motorcycle

Think carefully before you sign up for a rider training course. Motorcycle riding is not for everyone.

small__6072593125Everyone has an adventure gene that fuels a dream or passion. It may be buried, tucked away or dormant, but everyone has something that sparks his or her spirit. You know what it is when you discover it.

Riding carries risks. Anyone thinking of getting into the sport needs to accept that. There’s too much at stake for someone who doesn’t want to be in the saddle to be there. Inevitably, they don’t enjoy it and will jeopardize their own safety and that of others when they do ride. Having said that, it’s always a possibility that a person will learn to ride for one of the reasons below and find they LOVE it. Those people experience a radical transformation.

I’ve heard all of these reasons from students and others, about why someone should learn to ride. If they’re why you have enrolled and they go against your inner guide, think carefully before proceeding.

  1. As a passenger, you’ll know what to do if anything happens to the rider during your trip. There are so many reasons this is ridiculous but I’ve heard it time and again.
  2. Someone else (parent/spouse/child/friend) wants you to ride. If you don’t want to ride, don’t. You’re putting yourself, and others, in jeopardy.
  3. You look cool/hot on a big bike. That’s very nice (and true in many cases) but there’s more to it than that. Riding a bike that’s beyond your skill level is inviting disaster.
  4. All your friends/family are doing it. Let them. Do what interests you. This is however one of the ways that a number of women have found a new sport they can enjoy with their whole family.
  5. It will impress your friends and co-workers. What impresses people is someone who’s confident and self-assured, doing what they know is right for them.
  6. You have a brand new motorcycle sitting in the garage waiting for you. This is related to previous points. You may have received a motorcycle as a gift or it was the result of an impulse buy and now you feel you have to follow through. If you’re feeling like it’s not time to learn to ride, it’s better to take the hit and send the bike back than to take a hit on the pavement.
  7. Your partner lost his/her license and now wants you to ride him/her around. I actually heard this from a couple in the course.
  8. So you can say “Been there. Done that!” Motorcycling is something to be taken seriously. There’s too much at stake not to. Sure it’s lots of fun, but it also requires skill, discipline and focus—and practice to develop your skills. If you’re not prepared to do that, then take the course, pass the test and stay off the road. I’ve seen students do just that. All they want to prove is that they can do it, and they’re happy to never ride again.

And two more reasons why riding may not be for you….yet.

  1. Cost. The major considerations are the purchase price of your bike, maintenance, insurance and good quality gear.
  2. Inadequate time and other resources. You don’t have time to ride or a place to keep your bike. Proficient riding requires regular practice to keep your skills sharp. Motorcycles require good care for longevity and performance, which always relates back to safety. Over and above enjoying the ride, it boils down to safety.

Getting into riding, or any adventure activity before you’re ready, can diminish the experience for you. Wait until you can genuinely embrace it. Only then will you experience the joy, exhilaration and confidence that comes from fueling the desire that is authentically yours.

Debbie Evans Leavitt—Core Strength

Listen, chat with, learn, and get inspired by Debbie at the Power of the Road online conference, later today.  She’ll talk about the life lessons motorcycles have taught her and how they’ve enabled her to become successful as a person, wife, mother—and one of Hollywood’s stop stuntwomen. 

Debbie Evans Leavitt is considered one of Hollywood’s top stuntwomen. She began riding motorcycles at age six and competing at age nine. In 2003, she was inducted into the American Motorcyclist Association’s Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

Debbie Evans Leavitt 4

Debbie never let other people’s perceptions of what she should be able to do stop her from doing anything extraordinary. She says if she had, she would never have accomplished anything extraordinary. She’s such a success today, because she can shut off that thing that says, “No, you can’t do it.” Or, “It hurts too much. Stop!” You’ll never get to the finish that way.

Her first motorcycle came from a junkyard, It was a box of parts, all spray-painted blue, even the wheels. Wearing a hood to protect her eyes, she stood at the wire wheel, meticulously cleaning every part. Then she and her dad put it all together. She had her first bike—and schooling in mechanics and patience.

As a kid, she didn’t fit in much because she was a tomboy and got a lot of ridicule. She loved anything active and outside, and because no other girls were riding at her level, she competed against the boys. When she got out on her motorcycle on the weekends, she thought, “Who cares?” You guys are all a bunch of losers.” In fifth grade she was already riding with the wind in her face and all that junk was falling off behind her.

Debbie Evans Leavitt 3

Debbie always liked trials because of the challenge. She enjoyed competing against herself as much as someone else. She could go off, find a challenging rock and just keep going at it until she made it over. In other riding, a desert enduro taught her about perseverance.

Debbie Evans Leavitt 1

All those lessons from motorcycles paid off. She has appeared as a motorcycle stunt rider and stunt performer in over 300 movies and television programs. She has won seven Taurus World Stunt awards for her work in The Fast and the Furious (twice), Date Night, Taxi, The Matrix Reloaded in which she was the Trinity double, Superman Returns and Wanted, in which she doubled Angelina Jolie. She’s currently working on the Fast and the Furious 7. For a list of her movie credits, check out her profile here.

Debbie Evans Leavitt 5Debbie was the first woman to ride well enough to compete against the men at the National and World Championship level in the Fédération Internatioale de Motocyclisme’s Trials World event in 1978.  As the only woman among 280 entries at the Scottish Six Days Trials she finished fourth in the under 250cc class and 109th overall, effectively silencing the British men who were betting on which day she would DNF (Did Not Finish). She’s road-raced at Daytona and won many trophies for desert enduros.

2002 World Stunt Awards - Show

She was a girl. She wasn’t supposed to play sports. She wasn’t supposed to ride motorcycles. When she got into the business she was told, “You can’t be married and be a stunt woman. It just doesn’t work. None of the marriages work.” Or, “If you have kids, you can kiss you career goodbye.”  She has been married for 35 years and raised three children, proving that women can balance career and family.

Use the Power of the Road to create your ideal life! 

The Conference is live April 7th to 11th. Each video will be available for 24 hours on the Power of the Road website. That is Free to anyone who signed up.

If you know you would enjoy going on a walk with the audio, or listening to it in the car, at the gym, or at any time you wish, then Buying the Conference Bundle makes sense. Plus, it helps support Riders for Health, using motorcycles to deliver health care in Africa.

Right now it’s a SUPER value at $65 USD so I would get on it while the early bird is happening now.

Here is the link to buy. I know you will get so much more out of it when you have lifetime access. You’ll get 24 videos, audios and a downloadable worksheet with every interview with specific questions to fill out so you don’t just listen but you create an action plan based on what you’ve learned.

We really want you to get as much out of this event as possible and then extend that into your life.

Thank you for joining me on this amazing Road.
