One challenge I faced when I was a small child was learning to ride a bike. I learned with the training wheels how to peddle and ride. Then the training wheels came off, and I was left to ride on my own. It took me a few tries, but after a little practice, I was able to ride a bike. I still had a few slip ups here and there. I learned the best way to avoid something is just to get down and do it. It was one of my first accomplishments, and it was a good one.
