SORRY I Lied! It is okay to QUIT!
Last Update: Feb 8, 2023
I came across this in my email and I thought it was relevant to share. I hope you find it reflective and positive as I did
1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect their
position and keep it moving!
2. Quit trying to pull people on your journey who don't want to travel with
you. Either they believe in you and value you...or they don't!
3. Quit complaining about things you can't and won't change!
4. Quit gossiping about other people! Minding our own business should be
a full time job!
5. Quit blaming each other for things that in the big picture aren't going
to matter three weeks from now! Talk solutions...and then implement them!
6. Quit listening to the naysayers!
7. Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can't
do what you want to do!
8. Quit waiting on others to give you the answers....and start finding the
answers for yourself! If what you are doing isn't working for you...then
9 Quit settling and start making your dreams a reality! - Quit being afraid
and START LIVING YOUR LIFE! CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT!
If you want something different than what you have had in the past....you must quit doing what you have done before and DO something different!
START DOING something to create the experience you want!
Numbers 7, 8 and 9 are my favourites.
Until next time,
My favourites is all of them :-D
I am reading Stoic philosophy, and your post aligns well with yesterday´s and today's verse from The Daily Stoic book;
"Who then is invincible? The one who cannot be upset by anything outside their reasoned choice" - Epictetus, Disclosures, 1.18.21
"We have the power to hold no opinion about a thing and to not let it upset your state of mind - for things have no natural power to shape our judgments"_Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 6.52
The verses should speak for themselves 🤓
The verses does speak for themselves, Roy
I'm so happy that it aligns with what you're reading and I do hope that we all use these statements to push us into achieving even more from ourselves as well as our personal growth
It is always a pleasure connecting with you , Roy
Thank you for stopping by
Thank you, Simone.
It goes back to you too, Always a pleasure 😊
I hope you don´t mind me "stealing" the 9 "quitting" points? They are good!
Thank you for your blog post, Simone, very powerful and true words.
I think all the points you have made a very valid, Simone. However, I agree that points seven, eight and nine are so very true. Number four is really quite important, we should be gossiping!
Have a great day.
Good morning, Roy
I do agree with you. We should all learn to just mind our own business and thereby avoiding negativity by gossiping.
I'm afraid that gossiping doesn't lead to anything positive! We would be far better off going to help the person we are gossiping about rather than talking about them!
Incidentally, did you write the original email was it something that was sent to you? Either way, some really truthful and valid points in your blog post.
All the best.
PS: I wrote my comment yesterday, but I forgot to press post! The comment was still sitting there this morning!
This was sent to me in 2008 by a close friend. I rediscovered it yesterday.
It is so relevant in how we go about living out lives and our promotion positive mindset and growth.
No worries Roy about not sending. It is okay. No time limit ;)
Whoever wrote it, Simone, whoever wrote it, was very wise and has great values! I guess that it was probably a Christian!
My thoughts too, Roy. It was from a motivational speaker named Veraunda Jackson.
It was much longer than what I posted but I just took out the relevant ones for all to see
Great minds think alike! I just looked up the lady on Google and it looks like she is a Christian!
It was definitely worth sharing, Simone, it's so good to encourage others with encouraging words and sentences. The words lined up with Scripture!
I'm not surprised. Look at all her positive words and recommendations.
It is so great to hear that ;)
Good morning Simone,
More often than not, you can often tell by someone's words when they are a Christian! Yes, such positive works and recommendations!
Have a great day.
Good morning Roy
You are late this morning lol
By the fruits we shall know them. That's my guide for our believers in Christ
Hope your day is amazing
Lol!🤣🤣 I know, I overslept; however, I also had something to finish first thing, before I replied to my Wealthy Affiliate messages etc.!
Yes, that's true, by the fruits we shall know them!
Wishing you a very productive day.
Lol! I have done it again, although I was late for bed as I was finishing something off! Time goes when you're having fun!
I hope you have an excellent weekend.
Thank you, Simone!
I have almost excelled myself in oversleeping!
I hope that you have a good and productive weekend.
All the best,
Yesterday, I was working in someone's garden all day, it was one of those fairly physical days! I think my weak little body was tired, even at my tender age!!!
The one video a day on YouTube is going okay, so far, I am keeping it up! It's funny how some videos receive more attention than others. One video that I created has just one view, another video has 386 views and most of those views were within two or three days. I will keep posting!
I don't know how much YouTube likes a Christian-type channel; it may go against the narrative. However, there are plenty of Christian channels out there that get lots of views.
Thank you for asking about the channel, it's appreciated.
Roy, it will pick up, no doubt
It is important to just keep showing up
We never know who is just waiting for us.
Thank you, Simone! Someone I follow who's a Christian and a YouTube expert, always says; "just press record"! Not a bad principle or saying to make!
Yes, I believe it's too easy to keep looking at figures and get discouraged. But if we keep showing up, whether it is blogging or YouTube, things will happen!
Ultimately Roy, you want to know that the right person is following you
Your type of target audience.
Not worried about figures at this stage
As long as you continue to post daily, then you're already halfway there
Yes, that's so very true, Simone, I guess some naysayers will turn up at some point! But I won't be communicating with them.
That's very true, I know when I first started out online, I was checking figures far too often. I would have been much better off focusing on content rather than losing valuable time checking stats etc.
I believe that posting regularly is a big battle won!
Thank you, Simone, I actually achieved a lot! I hope you had a very good Saturday.
For some reason, Saturdays have traditionally been my worst performance day, for many years! I'm guessing that it must be because it's the end of the week and I am looking forward to taking a break! Possibly!
I know that when am working on my off-line business, traditionally on a Saturday, people are not working, so they want to talk! That also makes a difference in a kind of a good way!
A very happy Sunday to you.
Happy Sunday to you too, Roy
I'm glad that yesterday has been a positive and productive day for you.
It has also been very productive for me.
Here's to another productive and positive day ;)
Thank you, Simon; much appreciated! Very pleased that you had a productive day; that's good news!
Doesn't it really leave a nice feeling when you have a productive day!? It's much better than the feeling you have when the day has been full of interruptions etc.!
Indeed, I'm with you, let's have another productive and very positive day!👍👍
It's absolutely fine to quit Simone; I quit smoking years ago and I'm delighted that I did.
My wife tells me that she could stop shopping but she's not a quitter.
I particularly like no 1 as I remember that I don't have to attend every argument that I'm invited to.
Cheers on the quitting smoking. That's really lovely
I'm absolutely in agreement with your wife about the shopping.
She's a wise woman
Arguments are mostly negative, it is best to steer clear from then
It's been a pleasure, Rick
Thank you for stopping by
I like 6, 7 and 8!
Thank you for sharing.

“Start living your life and create the life you want” is my favorite.
A lot are too scared to change the bus they travel on, let alone their life.
But change is good. If we don’t change our ahem..clothes..hehe..we smell. The same with life. If we don’t change, our life will start to stink.
Stephen, the clean guy.
Thank you , Stephen the clean guy
Everything you said make perfect sense
Change for the better is absolutely going in the right direction
