“Winners never quit and quitters never win,” right?

If you grew up hearing this popular saying, you’re not alone. Maybe it was your football coach at your first big game, a parent helping you with homework, or a teacher helping you learn a new skill.

They all encouraged you never to quit because quitting was equivalent to giving up and giving up meant you didn’t have enough confidence or drive to succeed.

And, to an extent, they’re right. Giving up isn’t good. But quitting CAN be.

As we get older, it becomes harder to distinguish quitting from failure.

But go with me here…

Quitting is NOT a failure.

Quitting is pivoting into something else.

IN LIFE, IN YOUR CAREER, IN A RELATIONSHIP, TRY TO THINK LESS ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE QUITTING FROM AND MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE QUITTING TOWARD.

A UK survey found that 6 out of 10 people stay in relationships they don’t find fulfilling. 5 out of 10 people stay in jobs they’re unhappy with, according to a study completed by the Conference Board. Both surveys found that many people stayed in unhappy situations because they consider leaving to be a failure. What if what comes next is better than what’s you’ve left behind?

Are you quitting to move on to something better? Are you quitting to improve your personal or mental health? Are you quitting because the current situation no longer serves you? Being afraid of quitting, could literally be blocking you from starting that new business, going back to school, moving to a new city or embarking on a new career journey. If you’re still unsure, run through this quick checklist below:

Here are 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Quit:

  1. Is my happiness more important than complacency?
  2. Could there be something better on the other side?
  3. Am I making a decision to stay out of fear?
  4. Am I ready to take the consequences?
  5. Do I believe in myself?

If you answered “yes” to most of these, its time to QUIT.

Knowing when to quit or leave something behind is a crucial step toward a brighter, happier, more fulfilled life. So I want you to embrace quitting. You never know what’s waiting for you on the other side.

  1. This post really resonated with me. Back in the 60s when we were young, just out of school, new in our jobs and starting our family, my husband asked me sheepishly one evening what I would think if he quit his “good job” to go back to school. I might have said, “Are you crazy? How can we manage with my meager, single salary?” Instead, we talked about why he wanted to quit and what he wanted to do instead, and it was a no brained to say, “Go for it!” With prayer, planning, and mutual support, we made it through … happier by far than we would ever have been in a job that was not fulfilling for him. So, I hope your readers will take your advice if they are in a similar situation. Follow your passion. Be brave. Don’t be afraid of quitting FOR rather than quitting FROM! Good advice!👍🏽

    1. Wow. That’s so empowering and inspiring to hear. Thank you for sharing your words. Thank you so much ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. I have quit two good paying jobs in my working experience. I said my prayers, cleared out bills to zero, took advantage of all benefits, then left. Once on a venture, the other before things got physical. Either way, not knowing exactly how things would turn out, I had the faith that God would take care of me no matter what. And, I grew in so many ways, my business confidence grew tremendously. I even created my own database (that was in the 90’s and no formal training). I figured out a lot at that time, but my caveat was the “Yellow Pages” (lol business phone number, location and personal add). For some reason it was not included in the yearly print (after all was confirmed and paid for). So I had to move on, as I couldn’t wait another year to start getting enough exposure. But what a confidence boost the experience was! It was great for my resume too! The second quit was the best yet! Not selling my soul to anyone!

    1. “not selling my soul to anyone”
      Your entire piece that you shared, thank you so much 💫 ❤ I’m in tears, not sure why. I guess this is just empowering and inspiring to read. Thank you!! 💜

  3. I quit once. I’d been seriously injured in the line of duty. No one could blame me. Problem was it started a downward spiral that was amazing to behold. Nothing I touched worked for me. Finally, after about six months, I had to stop and ask myself what had happened. It turned out I was afraid of getting hurt again. So I saddled up again, oiled my pistol, and got a job as a police officer in one of the roughest towns in the valley. Turned out to be a good thing. Getting going again made me the man I am today. So, yeah, there are time you need to quit. There are other times you need fall back, regroup, and go at it again.

    1. The last line resonated with me on so many levels.
      I wish you the best on your journey. It’s so refreshing and empowering to read your words. Thank you for sharing a piece of yourself. ❤❤✨✨

  4. This resonates with me, I told myself I have to make changes for the better next year. Once I my finances in order I will make the proper moves. I needed this right here… Pure inspiration.
