QUIT: THE LAST PRINCIPLE OF SUCCESS
It is the aim of this book to help us, as a culture, to heal from the affective consternation experienced from decades of the myth that quitters never win. This myth disrupts our sense of well-being. It prevents us from disengaging from those pursuits that are either unattainable or no longer desirable, and keeps us from embarking on those that will make us happy and lead to an immense sense of well-being.
It is important that we shake off the unhealthy attitude toward the concept of quitting. We will be better off as a society when we reappraise the mental angst levied against those who quit.
After reading this book, you will have a better understanding of when to quit and how to align your behavior with your new goals in such a way that gives you the maximum chance of success. It really is true that no one ever achieved true greatness without the ability to quit. This is an important truth to share because your success may depend on it!
THE QUIT DOCTOR
Dr. Stanley G. Robertson grew up in a project building on the south side of Chicago. He pleaded temporary insanity and joined the Marine Corps; then trained as a lawyer and earned a doctorate in business. Jack Canfield, creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul, calls Dr. Stan the coolest person he knows; and predicts that Dr. Stan’s new book Quit will be a bestseller.
Dr. Stan has come to be known as “the quit doctor” because of his relentless determination to heal the world of the stigma and shame associated with the concept of quitting. He is an author, coach and speaker.
