We’ve all started things and then quit. Some of those things were school, businesses, jobs etc. There were probably hundreds of excuses that we could have given, but the fact of the matter is that we quit. If we’re honest, we will admit that we quit on ourselves. We quit on our goals and our dreams. We all know the ole saying: quitters never win and winners never quit.
Giving up is not a good feeling. We try to justify it, but it does not work. Quitting is hard on the soul because it makes us feel like failures internally. We often try to make up for it by trying something else. As soon as we give up on that, we start searching for something else yet again.
It is said that most businesses have a 90 percentile failure rate. Could it be that many of the individuals running these enterprises failed by quitting? Short comings are a reality in business and life. I’ve mentioned before that when you start something and then quit, you develop the habitual pattern of starting and quitting. This practice doesn’t serve you nor get you closer to your goal. It actually damages your chances for any kind of success.
Quitting something that you know you should finish, gives you a sense of un-accomplishment. Even if this is the case in your life right now, you can still turn it around. The only thing that matters is your decision and your actions to succeed. Don’t let quitting get you down. Even if you quit on God, God will not quit on you. He is faithful and just to forgive you. So forgive yourself for quitting. Get back up and serve the Lord thy God. Don’t let quitting get you down.
