Strive to Fail
There is a HUGE difference between ‘failure’ and ‘quitting’. Failure is something we should strive to do. In order to push your limit, you need to know where it is. You never know where that limit is until you try to pass it…aka failure. But you know what? You tried, and now you have a goal to revisit. It gives you commitment, insight, and a lesson learned. It might not be fun, but you’re a better person that came out on the otherside.
If you quit, you’re just done. You gave up. It has no positive aftershocks, only a further path to doubt and disappointment.
You cannot recover from quitting, but failure can be the best thing that ever happened to you. You can always pick yourself up, dust yourself up, and come back stronger.
