Have you ever felt embarrassed by the fact that you had to walk away from a goal?
A professional football player quit during halftime. A military commander quit his troops to be with his family. People who quit are often ridiculed and shamed because we are a hyper-performance-based society where “quit” is a dirty word. There are countless situations of everyday individuals who struggle over the decision to quit because of the emotional stigma associated with the concept.
But the notion that “winners never quit” is a myth. The truth is that winners quit all the time. It is the act of quitting a current goal that opens up the possibilities for a new one.
- Michael Jordan quit baseball and won a 3-peat.
- Thomas Jefferson quit Great Britain and started America.
- The Rock quit wrestling and became an action star.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger quit being an action star and became a governor.
Without the ability to quit, it is impossible to achieve success. Whether you’re quitting one goal to advance to another, or whether you’re quitting a goal that’s making you unhappy, this book helps you get past the stigma and frees you from the emotional baggage associated with quitting.
