Have you ever heard the quote “Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win“? Let’s talk about what would happen if this were actually true: people would still be playing in sandboxes and whipping each other with plastic shovels. Folks carry around a lot of unnecessary guilt about quitting. You don’t have to become the person who never quits. If you want to adopt a growth mindset you want to become good at quitting well. Let’s say you stopped going to the gym. Quitting badly would be to beat yourself up about it. Subconsciously you will associate going to the gym with feeling bad about yourself. This makes it less likely that you will go. Quitting well would be to try out indoor climbing, zumba and under-water rugby. Quitting well means you don’t stop moving even if you don’t go to the gym anymore.
