To Quit or Not to Quit

To Quit or Not to Quit

Quitting is not always the enemy.  If you’re letting go of something
that is hindering you, then go ahead and quit.  Let it go.  Dismiss it
and don’t look back.  It’s fine to change your mind.

But if you find yourself quitting at things that you really want, you’ve
got to learn to trust the process and give yourself a chance. 
Understand that you very well might fail the first time, the second time
and maybe even the third time. Get over that.  Try to adjust your
thinking in these ways:

*Remember that everything you set your intention to do is about your experiences along the way, not the end result.

*Only commit yourself to things that you believe in with your heart and soul.

*Everytime you make a decision about what to do next, ask yourself if
this is the same thinking that has led you to quit in the past.  If it
is, do the opposite.

*If you fall off, don’t abort the whole mission. Pick right back up
where you left off as if you never fell off in the first place. For
example, if you ate poorly on Monday, don’t use it as excuse to not
stick to your diet on Tuesday. Get right back on track.

*Visualize. Not just the end result, but also visualize what you want to
get out of the experience and imagine the feelings you will feel when
you see things through.

Consider the following:

“If you are determined to gather life’s honey, to stick your hand into
the hive again and again and again, to be stung so many times that you
become numb to the pain, to persevere and persist till those who know
and love you become unable to think of you as a normal woman, you will
not be called mad.  You will be called authentic.”

    *Sheds a tear* I needed this because I am the person who will quit something so fast even if I liked it, if I do not see progress on my time I get discouraged and say I failed and never try it again.

    Andrea ~ good luck with starting your new business! #growthandwealth.

    Good advice. I'm planning to retire from my current job in a little over a year and am seriously considering embarking on another career no where near associated with my current job. I'm certain these tips will be useful when the time comes.

    Love this! This article is helpful to me as I embark on a new creative adventure, a home based "upcycling" business. Venturing into unknown territory is always a bit scary, so I appreciated the reminders about the power of visualization, getting back on if you fall off, and focusing on the experience rather than the end result. Thanks.
