Progress in any facet of life is about taking 1 or two steps back to move forward. Whether it be in business, sports, personal relationships, etc.
Think about the people that you know who are "stuck" - they continue to repeat the same things over and over again and never quite get to where they want to.
In the beginning stages of anything, progress is simple and more often than not just has to do with showing up.
Beyond that stage, however, there comes a point where you have to suck up your ego and evaluate where you are.
It might be uncomfortable, but uncomfortable is where real progress begins.
