Today I taught my daughter to ride a bike and it got me thinking about the LIFE LESSONS we can all take from learning to ride a bike 🚲 These are the strategies I taught My daughter for riding (but don’t you think they translate to every day life???) 1. First you’ve got to keep your head up and look forward (we all know how important it is to have a VISION for our future) ☀️ 2. You’ve got to keep your legs moving. You’ve got to take ACTION. (You can have the best vision in the world 🌍 but if you don’t do anything, you don’t go anywhere) 3. PRACTICE (every master was once a disaster!) We have to practice things we want to get good at! 🚲 4. BELIEVE. See yourself riding in your mind - My daughter woke up after having a practice last night and told us that she dreamt she was a cycling champion! (you’ve got to believe you can do it) 🥋 5. Have a COACH to teach you the strategy. My daughter had my dad show her, and both me and My husband m (Why start from scratch? Make the most of the expertise around you. Olympic athletes hire coaches, everyone needs a coach)🏅 6. DETERMINATION. My daughter hasn’t stopped asking to practice on her bike since she got up this morning. She was determined to learn. Every time she mastered one bit, she asked to learn the next. First riding, then turning, then breaking etc 💪🏻 7. PERSEVERANCE. Keep going. Doesn’t matter how many times you fail or hit the post (as My daughter did several times!) 🏃♀️ Any other life lessons you think I’ve missed? I’d love your thoughts?
