Quitters are winners

Posted on March 14, 2009




Actually, I can’t think of anything farther from the truth. You can’t win unless you are trying a lot. If you try a lot, that means you are quitting a lot. The difference between winners and losers is that winners are just very experienced quitters. Winners have mastered the art of quitting. Whether you work in a church, business, politics, or entertainment, you don’t know what will work until you try. Want to open a new sushi restaurant that delivers? Want to start a church for porn stars? Want to create a line of clothes made from 100% recycled materials? Give it a try and see what happens. All winners have garbage cans full of failed ideas that have lead them to their brilliant ones. Start often, quit with pride, and start again. Sooner or later you will find what you are looking for. The only real ‘losers’ are the people that never quit.

I’d rather fail at something that will ultimately succeed than succeed at something that is destined to fail.
