Quitting is a Habit

A friend recently forwarded along an article from David Kaiser about the 5 reasons why quitting is a habit and I had to file this under “must post.”

David was an officer in charge of the Navy and Marine Corps SERE Program and when a group of behavioral psychologists did a study about the difference between victims and survivors, good athletes and champions…this is what they found:

1.  Lack of reality.

When people are faced with an unexpected or significant challenge, they’re surprised, overwhelmed, and ill prepared to rise to the occasion. They don’t believe it is happening to them and become paralyzed. Lack of action or delayed action by them results in failure.

2.  Lack of confidence.

Some people have a tendency to reach out for help as soon as they’re faced with a challenge. The problem is, the more reliant you are on others, the less reliant you are on yourself.

3.  Afraid to lose or resignation.

Some people give up before they even start. Their rationale is “Why make the effort when the odds of winning are stacked against me anyway?”  

4.  Lack of will.

Some people don’t have the stomach to face adversity. They’ve given up so many times in life that they accept defeat without making an effort.

5.  Fear of accountability.

Some folks leave their future to fate. They reason, “If there’s nothing I can do to change the outcome, why even try?”

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
