Winners know when to quit...
How often do we hear that "winners never quit"...? While this sentiment certainly has its time and place, it's not a hard rule that should ALWAYS be followed. If we have set an important goal that is aligned to our values, mission/purpose and vision, then YES - we need to keep moving forward even when things get hard.
But - if we find ourselves in a situation that is more draining than fulfilling over time, then we need to question if the situation is still the right fit. This extends to our work, our relationships, and other ways we spend our time. We need to pay attention to the time wasters and energy drains, and how we feel about the situations we find ourselves in. If we discover that we are in a situation that's no longer aligned to how we want to be living our life, or how we want to feel, then it may be time to exit and make a new choice.
Endings are hard. As we bring old habits, ways of being, or relationships to a close, we may feel resistance and we may experience a sense of loss as we let go. It's important to honor our discomfort, but choose to keep moving forward.
If you need help sorting out the endings that need to occur in your life, and/or navigating the actual process of letting go, please reach out and schedule a call with me to see how I can help.
