I have never quit on anything or on anyone in my life.
Ok, clarification required. I have, indeed, willingly released myself from places, jobs, relationships, and experiences. I have requested timeouts, taken spontaneous vacations to scream at the ocean, blocked a few phone calls, or gone to a “happy place” in my head for a minute…or a week. I have been asked to resign (a.k.a. fired), been broken up with, and completely ignored. But, I have never flat out given up and quit. It’s just not a part of my makeup. It’s not who I am.
I’m no quitter.
It’s not easy being a part of the No Quit Crew. As a matter of fact, it’s downright hard. No, it’s painfully, devastatingly hard sometimes. Crazy, right? Who would want that? Me, please (insert pom poms up here)! That’s because I believe the alternative, that is, giving up, is even worse.
Let’s say you throw in the towel, give up, wave the white flag. What next? It isn’t like that thing, that relationship, that experience, that opportunity just fades away into the darkness, never to be seen or heard from again. Nope! That would be easy, right? Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. It just hangs around in your mind, in your soul having the “what if” conversation with you for the rest of your life. Snore.
You deserve better and you have what it takes to dig deep and see whatever and whomever you dream and love through to its fullest manifestation. We are not born quitters. We’re just not. It’s conditioned. And, that’s great news! That means you can recondition your mind, your body, and your spirit to keep going, all the way through. And you, too, can join the No Quit Crew.
So, before you quit, know that you are a rockstar, you are a powerfully divine being who can face down little fear, doubt, worry, stress, heartache, and the rest. Relegate them to the back seat with sippy cups and a bag of organic animal crackers, while you keep driving to your destiny.
