Hi Team...

This was an interesting morning.....

This morning my wife told me I complained too much....

I quickly realized she was right.

Digging in on it, this "complaining" was a symptom of two things.

1. Doing too much at one time....

2. Not focusing on what is going really well... just looking for or at the next problem that needs as solve...

Those in business know that there is always the "next" problem- so why not be ready to solve it?

But it is that behavior that needs "quitting"...

When you look for problems, eventually your attitude can become a problem because all you see is problems!

That, I attitude had to be quit immediately.

Next, I believe we all have something we need to be quitting.

Whether it be smoking, drinking too much, eating too much sugar, or, maybe it is our place of employment.

Last week I was coaching a sales leader who was thinking of quitting.

He will eventually quit- I know it.

But, this will happen because he actually knows what needs quitting and that he is not in alignment- so, quitting is his best option.

A lot of people are told: Don't quit.. but, there are things that need quitting, and fast.

If you work for an asshole: quit.

If you hate what you are doing: quit.

If your attitude sucks: quit it.

If you do not like where you live : quit, make more money, and move!

If you do not like your financial status: quit acting like the # your earn and earn more (upgrade your thinking, actions, and social/mentor circle)

The key to life can be quitting.

Quit sucking, start winning by changing.

Change is hard- do it anyway.

Change one thing at a time- it could be as simple as changing your viewpoint.

Got it?

Go out and QUIT today.
