138. Phases of Progress

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it was easy, everyone would do it”?

This is true for almost anything that’s worth doing – starting a new job, renovating your house, and, yes, even losing weight.

The truth is that it’s usually not the end goal that makes everything feel unattainable, but rather the phases of progress you have to go through to reach your goal.

I know we all want our progress to be fast, easy, and predictable.

But it’s just not.

Every single one of us works through four phases of progress, some of which are much more trying than others.

I’m breaking them all down in this episode to help normalize exactly what it looks like to make progress that lasts.
