Never Quit!

January 23rd, 2009 | No Comments |

Recently I sat at a park and watched the kids play and I noticed something. The next time you are at a park do this. Pick two of them out. Pick one that has the most determination to get on the toys he wants and then pick the one that has no determination. You don’t even have to be there in person to know the difference between the two kids. What does their countenance say about them. Of course the determined one is happy, up beat, on top of the world while the one with no determination is always down, very mellow with not a lot of self worth. I have seen this, in person and I know that you have also known and do know people right now that are this same exact way. What makes them that way? Why do some people give up on what they want and what does it do to them permanently?

Allow me to share a quote with you that explains my point:

You only grow old by deserting your ideals. Years wrinkle the skin, giving up wrinkles the soul.  – Douglas MacArthur

What a great quote that is. Isn’t it so true though? If one gives up on one thing, it is that much easier to give up on the next thing. Now what happens to someones self confidence if they give up and what are they telling themselves by doing so? Quitting has never been the solution to anything. Quitting is telling yourself that you can’t do something, that you aren’t good enough. Some people quit because it is painful, it hurts or it just doesn’t feel right. In my industry, people often quit in their home based business for many reasons, but when it all comes down to it, they just quit! Quitting is the only way to destroy your momentum. So, when it comes time to start another home business, what will they think of first? They will think of the time they quit and it will be so much easier this time around to do the same thing.

Determination and ambition is not just naturally acquired, it is built by one success after another. While quitting kills your momentum, permanently, experiencing success builds your momentum, permanently. For each success, one gets a permanent addition to the soul. For every time one quits, part of the soul is lost. Quitting, giving up and procrastination all destroy the soul.

Now when I speak of quitting, I mean quitting things that improve you or your world. Quitting smoking, drinking, foul language, etc are all good! I encourage it! But when someone starts a project, a business, or a task and then quits, it is worse than if that person had never even started in the first place!

My advice: Be determined, be ambitious, have confidence in you, because you are the best and hold the potential to do anything you put your mind to!
