In our culture, quitting usually has negative connotations.  There’s this idea that if you quit something, you are giving up, a failure, should feel guilty, etc.  What if we change this perspective so there’s a possibility that quitting could actually be a good thing?  For example, let’s say that every morning you want to get up 30 minutes earlier to exercise, however when your alarm goes off, the snooze button gets hit for the whole 30 minutes.  If you could quit hitting that snooze button and exercise, quitting could actually add something positive and accomplish one of your goals!

This can translate into so many things, such as coping with a job you hate, communicating people who bring you down, saying “yes” to things that don’t add value to your life.  The list can go on forever.  The challenge this week is to find 1 thing in your life that is not working for you…either you don’t feel good about it, it doesn’t add value or can be a waste of time.  Whatever it is, it is time to quit!  Quit and open yourself to the possibilities of positive change and feel good about it!  You got this!
