Do not look for reasons to quit; create reasons to strengthen the enterprise.
“The world is unfair, it’s better that I say goodbye” Heard this ever! “I am not good enough, it’s
better I don’t stay” Sounds familiar too! They have become daily thoughts that cross many
minds. You can hear those in the corridors too. Sometimes you read those on the notes left
behind by those who have succeeded in taking their own lives.
Can you really quit? If you are successful in quitting, you will remain a quitter. The faintest
thunder will be enough to make you think of packing your bags. A lot of planning and effort goes
into packing your bags and in what to do once the bags are packed. So most of the time quitting
remains a permanent thought in your mind creating a permanent impression. You will keep on
gathering more reasons to quit, almost making it an unconscious rage.
When the constant thought in your mind is to quit, opportunities stop presenting themselves to
you. You keep on blocking them with your insecure thoughts. Change the way you think. Be
determined that you are not here to find faults with anyone. See yourself as someone who can
make a positive contribution. Be careful not to think that you are the only one who contributes
positively. It is equally important to remember that your contributions do not remain as mere
thoughts or as an action plan for others to practice.
‘Not to quit’ springs from recognizing the value of something. Once you know the value of
something, what is stopping you from giving yourself to it!
