Yesterday, I started telling a story about my recent motorcycle lesson. It was a group class that I was loving, but my body couldn’t really keep up.
You see, it had been so long since I rode, that my hand didn’t have enough strength to handle the bike for several hours in a row. Halfway through the class my hand was trembling.
I should’ve been cautious and taken it easy… but I’m just not the type.
I forged ahead and tried to power through.
Later in the day, my hand quit out on me completely. I couldn’t hold the handlebars anymore. My hand slipped off and I lost control of the bike.
I spun out and tried to set the bike down. It was really scary!
Somehow, I managed to escape with just a few scrapes and bruises. They hurt like hell and there was some blood, but I avoided major injury.
Now I don’t want anyone to blame my instructors for this! (even though they blamed themselves)
It was MY fault.
I didn’t listen. I pushed through like a bone-head. I paid the price.
And yeah, it was SOOO embarassing! Especially since I was the only woman in the class. Dammit!
BUT even though I had a minor accident, that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up on riding again.
The accident reminded me of a BAD real estate deal I once had. One where I was so so excited, and then everything that could go wrong, did. That made me want to quit for a while too. But if I had, I would have never gotten where I am now.
I would have never been financially free.
I already gave up several years of my life missing out on something I should have been doing. Missing out on more isn’t the answer.
I won’t live my life scared. I’ll get back on the bike.
And you should too.
If you’ve had a bad experience with a real estate deal, and you’re ready to get back on the bike yourself, you can RSVP to our upcoming 2 day workshop here:
You’ll find a caring, supporting community who will cheer you on and lift you up when you spin out.
