46 The Hard Thing About Hard Things

Subscribe to the Podcast!

Do you dread the hard things? No one really looks forward to difficult things, but do you dread them? The hard things in life are where we learn our greatest lessons, and we need them in order to learn and grow as people. Without them, we stay stagnant and complacent with the same old, same old.

Of course, with everything, it’s all about balance and figuring out when you need to lean into the hard things and when you need to step away and take a deep breath. In today’s episode, we talk about some lessons learned the hard way, and how to get the most out of those situations so that you can move forward with progress instead of continuing to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

  • How uncomfortable conversations can help you
  • Ways to use overwhelm and procrastination to your advantage
