Discover The Secret To Change Without Pain

I was doing a youtube weight training video today and I heard the fitness instructor say, 

“Pain = Change” 

It was not the first time I had heard this.  In fact, I have heard it repeatedly when it comes to change, not only about our bodies, but in any area of our lives.

I thought about how this message has become so ingrained in our psyche and how unfair we are being to ourselves by keeping this thinking going.
