Progress requires pain.

It hurts to move from where you are right now to where you want to be.

The bigger the distance you need to go, the longer it’s going to take you.

The more effort you will need to exert. The more emotional baggage you will have to bear.

Sleepless nights. Missed opportunities. Lack of friends.

Pain comes in a lot of different forms. In ways that you can’t even imagine right now.

Your natural reaction is to assume that if something hurts, you’re doing something wrong.

You’ve been taught that if you do it the right way — whatever it is that you’re doing — that it will feel natural and smooth and pain free.

So when you’re faced with the challenge of suffering it can feel like maybe you have the wrong goal.

Maybe your dream is ridiculously impossible.

But maybe what is broken is you.

That’s just your brain’s way protecting you from the pain.

The pain that’s producing progress. The progress that’s moving you from where you are now to where you want to be.

Without pain there can be no progress. Without progress you’re going to stay stuck.

Unchanged. Unimproved. And absolutely miserable.

In truth, that’s what hurts more.
