Have You Ever Wanted To Quit?


Have you ever wanted to quit?
I mean it. Walk away, don’t look back, leave it all behind….that kind of quit?

I have. If you can be honest with yourself, you have too.

We all make mistakes, mess up, fall flat on our face, get embarrassed or emotional and can’t take it anymore. The feeling of giving up happens.

So how can you get past that? What can you do to right the ship?

👉 Change your attitude.
A positive attitude and can change the situation in a matter of moments.

👉 Learn the lesson that’s being taught.
We are all going to make a mistake. Learn from it. It will help you in the future to not make it again as well as lead you to success.

👉 Learn to laugh at yourself.
Stop being embarrassed if you don’t succeed. There is NO ONE who is perfect.

I can remember one time when I was on stage and I forgot my line. During the pause, I could hear every heart beat in my head, getting louder and louder. I could feel my face burning with embarrassment. Then, out of nowhere, I spouted off words that made the audience erupt with laughter.

When the show was over, the director immediately ran my way. Embarrassed I stopped her and said I am so so sorry. She looked at me and said “what? I want to know where that came from? You have to do that same thing tomorrow night, I think that was the best line of the entire show.”

Although I felt embarrassed, humiliated and wanted to quit, I chose to change my attitude and just do something.

Today, when things get tough, follow the steps I shared and just do something. You might even get a laugh.
