“Winners never quit and quitters never win.” ~Vince Lombardi
Sounds terrific, yes?
A rallying cry for every motivational speech, book, or video ever produced.
Yet, the fact is you should quit and quit often.
Examples from my business include:
In 2007 I left corporate America to become a speaker to financial advisors and wholesalers.
The Great Recession proved that to be partially ill-advised, so I quit focusing on advisors and went all-in on wholesalers.
In 2010, I started a magazine.
It was only a marginal success and, worse, it was not scalable – hence the economics would never work.
I quit publishing it.
To be clear, our work as wholesalers requires tenacity, patience, perseverance, determination and resolve.
And I know I’ve persisted far too long at too many things in the misguided name of those attributes.
But, sometimes, you just need to quit.
“I quit, and you should too.” ~Rob Shore
