When people quit

“I just don’t have the drive to continue anymore. I know it was my goal, I know it’s good for me, but I just don’t want to do it anymore.”

Yeah, we’ve all been there. You are not alone. In sports it’s called a plateau. That place where you just don’t seem to be improving, no matter how much you try. Or you just can’t keep yourself interested no matter how much you try. Many people get like this in school, with jobs and in relationships. The most successful people in the world wanted to quit at some point, but success doesn’t come from quitting. It comes from trying, trying and trying again until we succeed. Sooner or later, our success in life is going to be dictated by our ability to “stick with it.”

People find that they can’t often make it alone. This is why in life we have coaches and mentors, friends, support groups, counselors, teachers and parents. They are all a part of our success team. Unfortunately, sometimes, they are a part of our failure team because instead of supporting us, and helping us through the tough spots, they just let us quit. True self-discipline is only learned after we lose motivation to continue.

I remember hitting that plateau. I hit it with college, with friendships, with sports, with jobs and with martial arts. Lucky for me, my family and my friends helped me get past it. I offer up to you now, my support to get you past your plateau and get you back on course to your next belt rank, no matter what it may be.
