Your clutch the handle tightly, you are barely moving and then you hit a speed bump.
You lose balance and you fall down.
First, you blame the speed bump. Then you get back up to try again.
This time you clutch the handle even harder.
And then as you are turning back you see someone.
He’s not even holding the handle.
Is he blind? Doesn’t he see the speed bump? This speedbump is going to kill him.
And then he simply glides over it.
This guy must have some supernatural powers.
Seven days later you’re doing the same stunt.
Be it cycling or thinking, the hardest thing to realize is that you are in control.
It’s not about peddling or learning how to handle or balance. But it’s the realization that you can balance. That’s the learning curve.
And as you start to gain confidence you start letting go, one hand off, and then both!
First, you enjoy the stunting, but after a point, you just enjoy the ride and continue experimenting.
Pretty soon you’re doing better than the circus guys…
And the entire feat starts with one thing – knowing that you can!
That you are the one in control. No matter the rough road! No matter the speed bumps! No matter the traffic!
