When Was The Last Time You Were A True Beginner?

Updated: Jan 17

As kids we’re beginners at everything. We try things, fail at first, and try again. Slowly we get better — we learn how to ride bikes, how to swim, and how to tie our shoes.

Once you’re an adult it’s easy to avoid being a beginner. You get used to being competent, and pretty soon learning something new seems terrifying.

If you haven’t been a beginner lately, you may have forgotten that mastering a new skill is exhilarating. It fills you with pride and a feeling of possibility.

After you try something new, your brain starts to think — if I did that, what else can I do? Suddenly the world seems full of possibilities, not obstacles.

Here, you can be a beginner in a safe, supportive environment. You’ll learn at your own pace, but you’ll be encouraged to push yourself.

All you have to do is show up.
