"Winners never quit. Quitters never win."
It has been very well said, no need for explanation or any proof of how it's totally agreeable. It's logical, for sure, how could quitters win when they stop in the middle of the fight, right? They prove nothing but the fact that they can't endure it anymore. I never heard of any circumstances when someone said, "I surrender!", and people aroud him rise to their feet and chanted gladly, "Good job! You're a winner! You're the best!" Hahaha.. If that happened, that was sarcastic then. It's such a shameful sight for that man who surrendered.
But as I think about it, do winners really do not quit?
What if they are pressing on the wrong dream?
What if they are persevering for something that is not worth it?
What if they are pursuing something that is not meant for them?
What if they are staying for something that in the first place they are not happy about?
Does it make them a winner if they don't quit that mistaken path they've chosen?
There's this man who is not a college graduate but spoke on a commencement exercise in one of the finest universities in the world, Stanford Univeristy. He said (part of his commencement address), "I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit." "I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK." So here's this man who we can tag as a "quitter" because he left/quit college. But why in the world is he invited to speak of dreams, will, hard work, success and alike in behalf of those successful graduates, he's just a drop-out? It is because this man, despite that he quit college, never quit to fulfill his dreams. So his life must be heard to bring inspiration to those young minds. Who is he? He's just Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios. At some point, he became a quitter, but then again this quitter becomes a big winner.
The world may view you as a quitter because you're not in line with their usual definition of winning. So what, right? What do they know about what you really love in life? It's okay dude to take the road less traveled..
Quitters don't necessarily lead to become a loser.
Sometimes, you don't have choice but to quit because you realize that it's not worth the fight.
Dont't worry, it doesn't make you a loser..
Sometimes, it takes quitting to become a winner.
Never allow yourself to be like others who are proud that until their last breath, they never quit. But what do they get? Nothing, they never win. If only they quit, they might be an unforgettable WINNER on the other side.
This post doesn't support you to quit. This post only tells you that : "Winning is not just about not quitting and quitting doesn't mean you'll never become a winner." Quitting might just be the door for you to enter the world of winning.. :-)
So look for that thing that's really meant for you to not quit about, until the last second of your life.. :-)
