Over the years, Dr. Dave has come to realize that it is very easy to quit things in our lives. When he was younger, Dr. Dave loved to sing. One day while at a friend’s house, he was singing with friends. His friend’s parent made a negative comment about the singing and after that point he began to feel self conscious when singing in public. He has since gotten over that fear and gone on to sing in front on stage in front of large audiences. He also used to like to play the guitar. He had gotten frustrated with his lack of progress in learning how to play and quit playing. Had he not of quit playing all those years ago, he would probably be a pretty good guitar player at this point.
There are a lot of things over the years that Dr. Dave has quit. Quitting is never a good thing, especially if it’s something that you want badly. The only exception would be in the case where you are in a situation that is making you unhappy and you have tried to change the situation for the better but you are still unhappy. In that situation, it is not only acceptable to move on, it is encouraged.
When Dr. Dave was still a dentist, he and his brother were working on a side business coaching others dentists on how to become more successful in their practices. When he decided that he wanted to pursue his coaching business full time, many of his peers thought he was crazy. He was a successful dentist with a profitable thriving practice. It would have been very easy to listen to the naysayers. But fortunately he did not listen. He and his brother began their business at the kitchen table with a PO box and a small pickup truck. That “kitchen table” business has turned out to be a multi-million dollar business over the past several years. Had he quit, he never would have known the potential. In fact, he did quite the opposite. He worked the business as hard as he could to prove to the naysayers that this was something big. There were many tough times where they wanted to quit but they persevered. They proved to themselves, and to everyone else, that they could do it.
“Never quit, never give up!”
As hard as something may be at that moment, you never know what is around the corner. You could be so close to achieving success. If there is something you are doing that you are passionate about or want to see happen in your life, keep it going. That doesn’t mean that if something isn’t going well, you can tweak it or fix it but don’t quit. For example, sometimes it is difficult to save money. You put a little away and then a little more away but it doesn’t feel as if it is growing quickly enough. So you say to yourself “why would I want to keep saving money if this is not accumulating?”. We’ve all been there. Sometimes you have to discipline yourself so much. And sometimes it will feel like it not going anywhere. But if you stick with it, you will achieve it. It might take some time to achieve but if you quit it will never happen. These days people are impatient but sometimes things just don’t happen overnight. You have to know what you are doing, work it hard, stay the course, and never quit!
So how about you? Do you have anything you are looking to do? Don’t quit if it’s something you truly want to do in life. Please, do this! You can win. You might have to work really hard at it but you can do it. Whatever you choose to do, try your hardest, persist no matter what anyone says, and prove to the world that it can be done. Are you ready to win?
