“‘Quit now, you’ll never make it’.  If you disregard that advice you’ll be halfway there.” -David Zucker

“The lie we all believe is that you have to stick with it.  You can’t quit.  You are what you are.  But that’s not true….  It’s called the sunk cost fallacy.  This is when you stick to what you’re doing because you already invested your whole life in it.  For example, you won’t quit your job (the job you hate) because that’s what you went to college for or because you’ve been doing it for 20 years and change is scary.” -James Altucher

“Have you quit on yourself?  It’s that time of year when most folks give up on their New Year’s resolutions.  According to a survey from the University of Scranton, after one month, 46% of people have already quit working on their resolutions. 

And among the top resolutions is to start exercising.  I want you to walk.  Walking is easy, free, and just about anyone can do it.  Even better… walking helps you live longer.  A brand-new study from the U.K. showed that substituting 30 minutes of light activity, such as walking, for 30 minutes of screen time, cut risk of early mortality.

If you feel like you’re in a slump or have a problem with the blues, get out and get walking.” -Dr. David Eifrig

“Don’t ever quit.  You’ll succeed if you have delighted customers.  Don’t settle for satisfied.  Have that person thinking ‘I’ve never had a better experience with a human being’ and they’ll be back to buy your product.” -Warren Buffett
