You Have a Choice to Make, What Will You Decide?

BusinessDo you remember the first time you rode a bicycle? You, like me, probably fell down a few times before you finally stayed up and actually rode the bicycle for a bit. What is it that helped you, in fact, made you determined to get back on the bicycle and try again after falling off?

Here are a few thoughts. Read these and then write down the reasons you think of:

  • You have seen others ride their bicycles, possibly your older brother or sister. Maybe one or more of your friends.

  • You had a great ‘coach’ or teacher working with you to instill the confidence in you that you could do it. The mechanics of riding a bicycle are a great example for how a coach should work. The reason is you must be the one to do it. The coach cannot step in and do it for you.

  • The coach is there to support you and instill confidence in you. Asking you, what is working and what is not working to help you make the right decisions for yourself? What else is special and is a great teaching moment regarding riding a bicycle? Once you ride a bicycle, and know how to ride a bicycle, you always know how to ride a bicycle! Let’s consider how this is important for you in your business success.

  • The creation of habits that are learned, repeated and built upon, are critical for building a successful business.

  • If you need to go from here to there, you can get up on a bicycle and go from here to there, anywhere, wherever you are, you would be able to do it. Translate this to your business. Are you building the flexibility into your business process where you are able to conduct business wherever you are?

Take a moment and review these items. Take some notes. Where do you need to take some actions steps right now and make a few decisions, which will bring you, closer to this type of thinking in your business? Building a business built for success requires that you do this, do it right now.

There are a few people who will make these decisions and map out their actions steps right now. Many more will not do anything. Which group are you in? Which group is made up of the business owners, who will be successful at whatever they choose to do?

  1. Mitch – I often use “riding a bike” analogies in my business – they are just such a great fit! I agree that flexibility is key … otherwise you may pull a muscle … one you need to reach your goals!

    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

      We all will face obstacles. A pulled muscle might slow you down, it does not have to halt the forward progress. Similar to running our business, we will have some problems or issues to overcome and we do overcome them as we keep moving toward our goals.

  2. So true — no one can ride your bike for you. Katherine.

    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

      Hah! Well not exactly, there is a bicycle built for two and one person may actually ride the bike for two for both. It is just a coach, especially a business coach, should not ever be the one doing that for you in your business.

  3. I think that we expect and accept coaching for physical things (like riding a bike and sports) more than for mental things like improving skills and interpersonal skills. Good points.

    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

      Some people will expect and accept coaching for physical things. Many do not. Look at the huge drop off after New Year’s for people who start to workout and then stop. It is really about desire and focus. There is no magical path toward meeting physical or mental goals.

  4. Mitch,

    YES! It’s important to be flexible and to listen to our ideal clients to find out who we can truly be of service. Then we need to take action.

    Write on!~


    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

      Taking action is key. Too many people keep looking and longing to be on the top floor. Then they keep doing what they have always done without taking that very first step up to where they want to be.

  5. Great analogy Mitch and yes I agree making money, building a business and doing anything in life is just like riding a bike – it takes a while to learn but once you’ve done that you never forget how!

    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says


      Exactly a skill and a habit when practiced they become part of regular life
      we just do them without thinking. This is why we must create for ourselves
      skills and habits which are purposeful and meaningful.

  6. Great analogy and great memories! and I still ride to this day…and have a blast doing it!

    • Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

      Great for you! I imagine you would not want to give it up either.

  7. Hey Mitch! I think you’re missing one group of people. There also are people who will keep working on their plan, tweaking it and editing it on and on and never take any action, therefore will never accomplish anything.
    Bike analogy is one of my favorites. Great post, thanks!

  8. Mitch Tublin Business Success Coach says

    Hah! Probably just busy taking photos of the bike and wondering how much fun it would be to ride one if they could only magically learn without trying to do it.
