No one starts out amazing, and failure is not a dirty word. Failure is a learning experience. If you go into a new experience expecting to fail sometimes, particularly at the start, then when it DOES happen you won’t be so rattled. You can assess, understand, and refine. But in order to do any of that you have to take the chance and start. Start a new biking routine. Start a new way of thinking. Start a new relationship with yourself and others. Just start, otherwise you haven’t gone anywhere, done anything, seen anywhere, or bonded with anyone.
