“The sometimes overwhelming desire to quit comes from the mind whispering ‘I can’t’ or ‘I’m not good enough, strong enough, smart enough.’ Whatever. Enough. We can be our own worst enemies when it comes to those doubts and negative self-talk. Being around people with positive attitudes helps, but ultimately it has to come from within. In the darkest times, no amount of schmaltzy platitudes will get you through it. When it counts, when you have to pull through, what you need is grit. You wrestle that bear to the ground, chasing it out of your psyche. You remind yourself that it’s easy to quit but hard to live with it afterward – it can turn into a virus that spreads and becomes an uncontrollable urge.”
