There’s a Difference Between Giving Up and Letting Go

Posted by:

I was raised in a family that believed you should never quit anything. The no pain no gain mentality.

Unfortunately (and fortunately) this carried with me into adulthood.

If I start a project, training plan, relationship, or am employed at a job that isn’t working…I just stick it out, trudge through the muckiest of muck, and don’t quit. I would reach toward goals that maybe didn’t feel right and all while enduring A LOT of resistance along the way.

The other night I was watching a show called “Brain Games”. Have you watched it? It’s all about perception.

It really caused me to reflect on just how much that can apply not just to pictures, but to situations in our everyday life.
