It's like lifting weights with a fitness coach. At first, you struggle to lift a small amount of weight and the soreness/pain associated with it can be discouraging. However, with the coach, you start to adjust, learn proper technique, replace bad habits with good ones, and finally you master that small amount of weight. Then you start to pursue bigger and heavier weights, and the cycle continues. On the way, you hit plateaus and even setbacks, but your coach is there to help you break through it. True accelerated growth comes once you embrace the constant struggle and recognize the pain and soreness as signs of progress.
