On the last leg of my mountain bike ride my rear tire broke loose in the sand and sent me skidding on my way into a jumping cactus.
If you have ever been to the Sonoran Desert you will notice these look like cuddly, soft cactus but in reality are very painful. Yes, I know by experience. Even picking one up with gloves on sent the fishhook like barbs into my skin.
Anyway, as I was dangerously close to spending the next 3 hours of my life pulling out cactus barbs, I finally got my shoe out of my pedal and was able to push my momentum away from this spikey fiend.
Wow that got my heart pumping…it was a little too close.
I didn’t always use mountain biking shoes and clipless pedals. When I first started out I just wore regular shoes and pedals as I was learning the ropes on the trails.
I heard that using the pedals where you are ‘clipped in’ give you more power and stability especially through climbs and bumpy terrain. So I decided to give it a try.
I was uncomfortable at first but now enjoy the benefits they bring. Not only am I able to push down on the pedals for power, I am able to pull up the pedals for power as well. Having two constant forces working for my good.
In today’s video I talk about financial volatility and two economic powers.
Most of us are only aware of the one power to grow capital (i.e. using the markets). And in this video series we have discussed how using science as well as the speculative power( i.e. the markets) helps reduce the effects of volatility and increase cash flow as well.
So if you want to increase your cash flow and not feel like a puppet to the ups and downs of the market check this out.
