Taking longer than I “thought”

I had the thought when joining scholars – this will help me grow my business (faster).

What has happened is I have become aware of just how much work I need to do on myself (read as: learning to allow and process emotions, revealing the thoughts behind them, possibly coming up with new thoughts, practicing the new thoughts – and all the awareness and models around all of that).

So much so, that my new thought is – it’s going to take me a lot longer to grow my business than I thought before I realized how much was “in my way.”

LOL! Is this normal? I have to say, the truth is likely that it will still speed up the process of growing my business because I certainly wasn’t growing it at any rate before doing this work. But I just didn’t realize before…

Would appreciate your feedback on this.
