Thinking: I’m Calling It Quits Because I’m Not Cut Out For This — Is Dead Wrong

  • 3 min read

Yes, I’m talking about you.

A few days ago, two of my former students left Medium — without telling me or the community.

So I send them an email and asked them about their WHY?!

Well, reason number one for both was:

I’m not cut out for this.

One more time, I asked them WHY?!

They both shared that they failed.

This story that took me days to write it, didn’t work out as planned.

I told them that a failure shouldn’t be an indication that you’re not meant to be on Medium.

It’s not proof that you don’t have what it takes.

Thinking something like this is just dead wrong!

A failure should just be your opportunity to fix something.

To make it better, learn from it, and show up differently.

You’re in this for the long haul.

You want lasting success.

Quick wins are nice but you need to keep on keeping on.

Here’s what to do instead of calling it quits.

Calling it quits because you’re beginning to believe you weren’t cut out for this is dead wrong.

Don’t forget:

You’re playing the long game.

You want to be the 1% of online writers who pump out content consistently.

The 1% who show up, become a trustful go-to source and win the game of online writing.
