You are standing on top of one mountain, looking up at the next peak which is where you want to be.
The only problem is, there is no cable car, no gondola, and the only way to get up there is to first go down into The Gap.
Getting to the next peak can be exhausting and it requires a lot of effort and consistency and accountability.
Sometimes it gets so hard you wonder if you should have started at all. That’s The Lizard talking again, forgive him, he loves you.
You might feel like you are working more, not less. Earning less, and not more. You may feel like you are moving farther away from your goal. The truth is that progress doesn’t always feel like progress – sometimes it feels quite the opposite.
Nothing will come without effort, sacrifice and discomfort – your strategy, your plan and willingness to measure your progress and hold yourself, and your team accountable is the only way back up – all you need is to know that you are moving forward, to keep yourself moving forward. Don’t stall.
