Winners never quit, quitters never win!

20 replies
but if you have to quit, then the condition should be when you really know that it's the time to quit, and you have to know that quitting is the only way to get the situation better.

    Maybe quit isn’t the correct word, maybe change tactics? change your plan of attack?

      Yep, you got it.

      Change the plan, never change the goal. Unless you were 100% wrong in choosing the goal - ie, it was somebody else's goal instead of yours, etc - in the first place.

      I used to throw in the towel quite frequently with different ventures. Sometimes I was genuinely unhappy with what I was doing but on a few occasions I simply couldn't tolerate the resistance experienced.

      I don't regret these situations though for they taught me to persist like crazy with whatever I set my mind to.

        I agree, I use to change the products I was selling as fast as they came out with new ones unilt I took control and focused on just one thing at a time.

    yes, of course. a winner will change his plan , but a winner will know when he has to get out of something and start something else to win.

    cant really say i agree with you. You shouldn't quit because there will be someone out there making the same thing work. Surround yourself with positive people and learn new methods. Improve your content and try out new tactics

      I don't think he's really say quit, but more like change your approach. Like they say if you keep doing what you are doing, you'll keep get what you are getting.

      There comes a time when you have to access what you are doing, what results you are getting and decide if you should keep doing it.

      You should give it 100%, ask for advice, ask experts, and adjust your approach.

    It's all about the choice of timing. I wish I quit earlier my last business, thing wouldn't have been that bad but the hope that things will get better kept me from quitting, I hope this time I will act like a winner would do.

    Thought of the day: if quitters never win, and winners never quit, then why do they suggest we quit while we're ahead?

    I totally stole this quote from somewhere, but I forget where. Please forgive me.

    Best Regards,

      Hi mate, I forgive you for giving statement like this (which is against mine), but it doesn't matter. Every winners know when they have to switch, quit, stop, and do something else, and quitters will end like a looser because they close their eyes from timing and condition that changes all the time very quickly.



      Best Regards , mate

    Hey,

    Great advice here guys!

    I have to agree that it is important to change the game plan if things get in the way of what you had previously planned.

    That way your goal is still within sight in within reach you have just added the other roadblocks in the equation.

    Just my 2 cents.

    God bless,
    William Veasley

    I believe in this but also you need also to learn when to stop and make changes.

      This post reminded me of a favorite quote of mine:
