I quit all the time.
I hate to admit it, but I do.
I quit when:
- someone doesn’t act like I want them to
- someone doesn’t like what I want them to
- someone says something I don’t like
- someone says something I take personally
- things don’t happen as fast as I want
- things don’t happen the way I want
Let’s see. Is there anything else? Probably, but I think you get the point.
I also quit relationships.
If someone criticizes me, makes me wrong, embarasses me, etc. they become DEAD TO ME. I am DONE. ADIOS, MUCHACHO.
It’s not like I say it, I just do it. I no longer feel affinity for them. I put them in the REJECT pile unknowingly and put an invisible barrier in between us.
With projects, for example, selling my book or making sales appointments, when I don’t get the results I expect, my excitement and belief disappears. I either forget I ever started, or continue with resigned resistance.
What if, INSTEAD, I could “be” with whatever someone said or did, or with whatever happens, with no loss of affinity or enthusiasm?
Honestly, I can’t imagine what life would be like. But I’d certainly like to see what happens living life THAT WAY. I’m going to take that on.
How about for you? Where do you quit? What could happen in your life if you didn’t?
