iQuit

Nothing is worse than doing something you know you should not be doing – you know it is not working – but you are doing it anyway because you have been told to “never give up”. Sometimes quitting is the best decision you can make. 


In our world where optimism and the “never give up” attitude is considered sacred, we are accustomed to push through barriers until we succeed. As child, our parents, relatives and teachers taught us to never give up! But at what point does this positive thinking mindset actually hurts someone? It is a fact that a lot of people view quitting as a negative thing to do but is it? If I am asked, I will say NO. The reason being, "Winners never quit,"  that is what we have been told always, however, in reality winners quit all the time preferring to stop doing things that are not generating the outcome they desire. 
Life is a beautiful struggle and sometimes quitting is the best thing one can do!

  2. Yeah, at times when we take rash decisions and things are not working out, it's better to quit. Lovely shot!

  6. Quitting isn't bad, if it is your job that you are quitting to pursue new interests.

    1. 'Sometimes' quitting is the best decision one can make but 'not always' and it is not limited to jobs only.

  12. Its nice you thought of writing something.. this one is good... :)

    but I suggest you to give your views(some more description) or else the post looks so obvious.. like you should write about setting your goals first and then u should write y quitting can be totally fine. What do we call a man with no goals who quits.

    P.S. totally my views.. but the point u want to make is very nice.
