… “you’re quitting something that’s killing you so you can step into something that will give you life.” –Tony Gaskins
Can we be honest with one another?
What was the last thing you quit? I know, I know, you’re thinking “c’mon Coach, I’m no quitter.”
Let’s put aside the “my life is perfect” act that we show everyone on social media for a minute.
At one point in your life, you have quit something.
*A relationship *school
*A job *a friendship
*a weight loss program *the gym
We have all been there – remember we are being honest here!
I am sure you have heard the quote, “The moment you want to quit, is the moment when you need to keep pushing.”
One of my workouts this week had me ready to quit. It was hard, I was hot from the weather, and honestly already a bit sore.
I thought to myself, “Why am I doing this? Just quit.” (Sound familiar?) But that tiny voice in the back of my head told me to dig deep because the reward was far better than stopping.
So I kept going and by the end, I was happier than when I started. I was able to persevere and commit to the workout I was doing.
You see, quitting when it’s hard – that’s easy!
But what if, for the next month, you didn’t quit when it got hard? What if you made the decision to dig your heels in and try even harder?
What could the possible benefits be?
-maybe a relationship with better communication?
-maybe the ability to more productive at work?
-maybe you dig deeper at the gym and see better results?
-maybe you become more open-minded, listen better, and see the positive side of things?
I challenge you to give it a try and then drop me a note to let me know how it went.
Until then, if you know someone who needs to hear this, forward this email to them.
