EP 289-Normalizing Hard

Emotional Mindset, Podcast

Welcome to today’s episode of “Do All of the Things, Inspired by countless client coaching sessions, Today I’m sharing insights gathered over years of coaching dietitians through the journey of starting or scaling their nutrition practices.

In a world that often glorifies ease and instant success, it’s important to dispell the myth that everything should be effortless. As a mindset coach specializing in business growth, I’m here to help you navigate the challenges, not eliminate them entirely. So, let’s discuss the concept of normalizing hard work and embracing it as an integral part of any meaningful endeavor, like starting & growing a business.

In this episode, I’ll shed light on why normalizing hard work is crucial for personal and professional growth. Through real-life examples and practical strategies, you’ll learn to shift your perspective on challenges, viewing them as opportunities for development rather than roadblocks. From setting realistic expectations to focusing on solutions and visualizing success, together we’ll explore actionable steps to cultivate resilience and adaptability in the face of adversity.


  • How to reframe challenges as opportunities for growth.
  • Strategies for setting realistic expectations and anticipating obstacles.
  • The power of focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems.
  • Techniques for visualizing success to boost motivation and confidence.
  • Insights into the importance of balancing hard work with rest for sustainable progress.
