Sometimes it is ok to Quit!

it's ok to Quit....." Motivational Speaker - Veraunda Jackson

1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect their
position and keep it moving!

2. Quit telling people your secrets when you know they are not going to keep
them! And if you keep telling them, then quit getting mad when they tell your

3. 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!

4. Quit complaining about things you can't and won't change!

5. Quit gossiping about other people! Minding our own business should be a full
time job!

6. 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!

7. Quit eating things you know are not good for you! If you can't
smaller portions!

8. Quit buying things when we know we can't afford them! If you don't have self
control, then quit going to the stores! Quit charging things, especially when
you don't NEED them!

9. Quit staying in unhealthy relationships! It is not okay for people to
verbally or physically abuse you! So quit lying to yourself! It is not okay to
stay in the marriage for the children! Ask them and they will tell you that they
really would prefer to see you happy and that the misery you and your
spouse/partner are living with is affecting them!

10. Quit letting family members rope you into the drama! -Start telling them you
don't want to hear it! Quit spreading the drama! Quit calling other relatives
and telling them about your cousin or aunt! Go back to #5 minding your own
business should be enough to keep you busy!

11. Quit trying to change people! IT DOESN'T WORK! Quit cussing people out when
you know that they are just being the miserable and jealous people that they

12. Quit the job you hate! Start pursuing your passion. Find the job that fuels
your passion BEFORE you quit!

13. Quit volunteering for things that you aren't getting any personal
fulfillment from anymore! Quit volunteering for things and then failing to
follow through with your commitment!

14. Quit listening to the naysayers! Quit watching the depressing news if you
are going to live in the doom and gloom of it all!

15. Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can't do what
you want to do!

16. 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 quit

17. 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 must quit doing what you have done before and DO something different! JUST QUIT IT ..... And START DOING


  1. Thanks, Lisa. This post helped me so much tonight, as I struggle with my job (and potentially soon a lack of one) and the career I truly want to have full-time, in helping others with their health and fitness. Especially #12 and #17!

  2. Thank you Vic.......I posted because I felt like I am so tired of settling for something and never taking chances to see if there is something better out in this Grand Universe.
