If you want to change your life, you have to get honest with yourself.

What’s working? What isn’t working? Who’s bringing you forward and who’s bringing you back? Candid self-reflection can reveal things you wish weren’t there, but knowing what you’re dealing with makes big change possible.

Our guest, Grace Vroom, knew something had to give; there were countless areas of her life that she wanted to improve, but it was only after getting honest about her addiction to alcohol that she started to make any progress. Sobriety felt like such a daunting must-do on Grace’s self-improvement to-do list that she didn’t know how to start and she didn’t think she could sustain it. As you listen to this episode, we challenge you to pay close attention to what her lead domino was — it was so small that it might surprise you.
