Joe DiStefano: When Willpower Wanes: How To Know When it's Time to Go
You can be in one of the best jobs ever, but when you feel out of alignment, start relying on willpower to get you through a day, or feel like your best energy could be spent elsewhere, it might be time to seek new opportunities. Joe DiStefano has had fabulous career opportunities come his way but ultimately knew that he was happiest on his own with his health company, RUNGA, and podcast, Stacked. Joe was instrumental in developing the training program for a popular obstacle and strength course. These types of training programs, and others, like Crossfit, have been massive in getting more people interested in fitness who never have been before. But Joe feels that certain types of fitness, especially ones where you treat your body pretty brutally, can be counterproductive to wellness. So Joe decided to listen to and trust what his gut was saying, that working for this type of company isn’t the right business for him. The decision came parallel with a willpower decision; he felt like he wasn’t living in line with his passion and his best energy was being spent away from his career. When the job you’re doing is taking more energy to get there and more willpower to see through a day, it’s impacting your performance, the energy at the company, and ultimately, your entire career. Joe knew he needed to invest his energy into something that wasn’t a struggle to get through. Motivation is good in theory, but shouldn’t be necessary in practice. Instead of quitting for the sake of quitting or to make a bilateral move, Joe made a strategic quit that was going to improve the quality of his life and career. The thing that holds back most people who are thinking about quitting is the thought that if they go, they won’t have their benefits, or secure income, or the money to keep paying the loan on the latest Mercedes. But there is so much abundance in the universe, we just need to trust. And quit that scarcity mindset! What helps Joe is actually picturing the worst-case scenario. By thinking about how you would handle the worst thing that could happen if you quit, you’ll probably realize it won’t be as bad as you fear. We also talk about moving forward after a business disaster, finding incredible opportunities, and the most valuable skill we can all nurture. Are you scared of quitting what doesn’t serve you anymore? Do you find that you need to rely on your willpower to get you through the day more often than not? How can you be more mindful with your career intentions? Let us know in the comments on the episode page! In This Episode: How fitness can be counterproductive to wellness Why you need to learn to listen to and trust your gut Why you need to invest your best energy in a career that doesn’t need the willpower to stay motivated What the difference between a quit and a strategic quit are Why you need to quit your scarcity mindset What happens when you envision the worst-case scenario How a huge business disaster can lead you to incredible opportunities Why self-reliance is the most valuable skill we can have Quotes: “When you’re doing something you’re meant to do and you’re in alignment and you are honest with yourself, willpower and “motivation” isn’t a thing.” (17:35) “Maybe you just have a purpose to share, like Mozart did… You’re never going to be able to put your best energy into those things if you’re using willpower. Because willpower is not really a thing, that’s called resistance.” (20:38) “You’ve got to be open to whatever happens and be very aware of the worst-case scenario.” (40:41) READY TO MAKE QUIT HAPPEN? Then you’re in luck! Because my online course, Make Quit Happen, is available to start now! It’s a six-week program in which each week we tackle a different step in the strategic quitting process so that at the end of the course you know WHAT you need to quit, you have overcome any quitting-related FEARS, and you’ve got HOW to make the quit happen all planned out!

Sara Sheehan: Quit Letting the Chorus of Voices in Your Head Dictate Your Decisions
The first thing you need to get rid of when you’re ready for transformation is that negative voice in your head. Imposter syndrome and negative self-talk will always hold you back. Sara Sheehan guides and talks to people about their transformation with her course and program, Wake Up Transformation. Sara actively encourages you to push through your negative self-talk. You are more than what the voice in your head is telling you! And if you find yourself negatively spiraling and like your life is out of control, there are ways you can turn that drift upwards into a positive life outcome. If you’re experiencing an identity crisis, for example, from a quit that’s lead to a huge part of your life not existing anymore, you’re not alone. There are so many ways you can help yourself through something like this. Sara shares some of the ways you can work through an identity crisis, including meditation. You’ve probably heard people talking about their 5-year plan. Sara and I both have a problem with the 5-year plan… we’ve changed so much in the last 5 years, how will we know who we’re going to be in the next 5? By creating a plan like this, and the same goes for those new year’s resolutions, you might be thinking too small and not allowing for deviations on the plan that might bring you into your higher self. Sara recommends thinking back to what you wanted to be and do when you were 10 years old. When we embrace our hobbies and the things we loved when we were a child, we’ll reconnect back to our state of flow. And the flow is where the magic happens. Finally, Sara explains why you can’t have a healthy transformation when you’re in a toxic environment. It’s essential that you leave unhealthy situations, relationships, or aspects of them in order to truly transform your life. What does your negative self-talk sound like? How can you reframe that voice into a positive? Where do you feel most in your flow? Let us know in the comments on the episode page! In This Episode: Why you need to say good-bye to the negative thoughts in your head How you can push through your negative self-talk How a negative spiral can become a positive What you can do to help yourself through an identity crisis What the problem with 5-year plans is How embracing your inner hobbies can connect you back to your flow state Why you need to distance yourself from toxic environments Quotes: “Other people have insecurities, too, but that shouldn’t stop you. Sometimes the greatest thing you can do is face your fear and get ahead of it.” (5:30) “At the end of an identity crisis, you are still you.” (17:08) “Sometimes the thing you have to quit is listening to other people.” (25:05) “Once you’ve got that self-love, it’s easier to see which relationships are not serving you. Because if somebody’s not treating you as well as you treat you, why would you subject yourself to that person?” (28:45) READY TO MAKE QUIT HAPPEN? Then you’re in luck!

ENCORE EPISODE w/ Tara Garrison: Finding the Inner Strength to Follow Your Heart
Quitting is always difficult, but quitting the only life you’ve ever known comes with a unique set of obstacles and hurdles to overcome. Today’s guest, Coach Tara Garrison, was living the perfect Mormon life, but deep down, she knew something didn’t feel right. This is her story of how she listened to her gut, quit her life, and changed her destiny. Tara had it all - the marriage, the 4 kids, the community and friends, the Mormon education… but something didn’t feel right to her. When she started learning more about health and nutrition and living a more natural life, she started to feel more awake and aware of where she was in her life. It helped her realize that everything she questioned since she studied the Book of Mormon at university was her body telling her she wasn’t living where the Universe wanted her to. Following a divorce with her husband, Tara braved the consequences of leaving her Mormon life behind and left the church. She didn’t have a plan, literally zero dollars to her name, and ended up couch surfing, before finally hitting a break with a personal trainer friend of hers. After taking her life into her own hands, Tara is now working as a successful health and wellness coach. And once she made the decision to start her own coaching business, all the pieces started fitting into place. In this episode, we’re talking about why you need to feel and experience the pain you’re going through in order to understand what a situation is trying to tell you. Tara also explains what happened to her social and community life when she left the Mormon church, but why going through this hardship was still the best decision for her. Plus, how taking risks and quitting can lead you to take on new experiences you never would have considered in your old life. Knowing how to break down the stressful thoughts and feelings you’re going through is so beneficial to working through them and understanding other perspectives. But regardless of how other people feel about a situation, it’s more important to live in your truth and follow what you need to do to be a healthier version of yourself. When you do this, the Universe will start providing bountiful opportunities for you. How do you feel when you’re in a situation you don’t like? Do you know how to deal with emotions that arise, even after you thought you left them behind you? Have you ever quit the only life you’ve ever known? Let me know in the comments! In This Episode: Why you shouldn’t disconnect from emotional pain you’re experiencing How quitting something can contribute to intense social anxiety What new experiences quitting something can lead to Why it’s important not to replace what you’ve left behind with the first opportunity you come across How to handle the emotions that resurface when you meet someone from the life you left How you can take a stressful thought and break it down to understand where it comes from Why you should do whatever you need to do in order to come out the other side as a healthier version of yourself What it’s like when you start living with your heart How to recognize when you fall back into old patterns Who the most important person for you to rely on is How to know if you’ve made the right quit in your life Quotes: “I’ve had to learn to speak up and talk when you’re going through pain and you’re going through hard times.” (5:00) “It’s my job to have forgiveness and compassion and love, no matter what. And to not give or surrender my power to them.” (19:10) “The Universe just started saying yes, and yes, and yes, and yes as soon as I started putting myself out there and acting.” (32:20) Links: Find Tara Garrison on online Follow Tara on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube Check out the full episode post here Keep up with everything Quit Happens here Follow Lynn Marie on Twitter | Facebook | LinkedIn | Instagram Podcast production support by the fine folks at Counterweight Creative

Christine Hassler: Quit Letting Expectation Hangovers Keep You From the Life You Desire
It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past, everything you’ve gone through has been a step to getting to where you are now. This means no regrets, only learned experiences. Christine Hassler is here to talk about life leading up to and moving on from a quit. Christine is the host of Over It & On With It, the author of multiple books, including the incredible Expectation Hangover, a keynote speaker, and master life coach with a Masters in spiritual psychology. She works with women to help them gain clarity and live the life they truly want. First things first, and this goes for every single person considering quitting out there: if you’re feeling the need to quit something, make a change, or if the situation is causing you discomfort - don’t wait until it gets worse. Make moves to remedy your situation before it becomes something you medically have to leave because of. Christine gets it. It’s the not knowing what’s on the other side of that quit that’s almost more terrifying than the situation you’re in. Learn to trust your instincts; you don’t need anyone else’s permission to quit. Christine lets us in on the secret of having a life coach: what they do exactly and what value a life coach will have in your life. Life coaching is way more than therapy! She shares how she uses and teaches the Law of Attraction… it’s more than just positive thinking. In fact, the more you talk about something, the more energy you’re giving it - and yes, that includes things you don’t want! According to Christine, having a plan for your life might actually limit you. Life plans can cause you to think small, giving you tunnel vision to only hit one goal, but you might miss out on so many other incredible opportunities along the way. So think big and be flexible! Do you have a rigid life plan? Are you thinking of quitting but the fear of what’s on the other side is stopping you? How do you attract good things into your life?

Because human beings, in general, don’t like uncertainty.” (8:07) “It doesn’t matter how many posters of money you have up, or how much you affirm ‘I am wealthy,’ if you don’t deal with the limiting beliefs that are there or the unprocessed emotions that are broadcasting a different frequency, then you’re always going to have those competing intentions.” (19:31) “We know. We know when we want to leave, we know when we want to do something different. We just want some drastic sign or someone that we think has some kind of authority to go ‘no, it’s okay, you can do it’ when all the while the person we really need to listen to is ourselves.” (27:38) READY TO MAKE QUIT HAPPEN?

Dr. Nii Darko: Mindset Shifts to Help You Quit Sacrificing Your Life for Your Career
When your soul feels out of alignment with the work you’re doing, you’re more likely to feel stressed, anxious, and at odds. Not to mention the opportunity cost of working at a job that’s taking you drastically away from your life! Dr. Nii Darko is here to talk about how he made the hard decision to quit surgery, then go back to surgery, then quit again. Nii is the host of Docs Outside the Box Podcast where he talks to medical professionals about other aspects of their life than medicine. He’s a locum surgeon who realized that he didn’t want to spend his entire life at the hospital. His podcast was born out of a desire to spend more time with his family while still making a positive impact on the medical community. The true test for Nii came when he realized he was miserable working the equivalent of two full-time jobs. He didn’t trust himself enough to be able to provide for his growing family unless he was working as a surgeon, but the opportunity cost of this was a lot of time lost with his immediate and extended family. Nii was stuck in a fixed mindset when what he really needed was a growth mindset. Nii knows now the importance of listening to and following your heart. Even when your head wants you to do the most logical thing, your heart doesn’t often steer you wrong. And just because you think you don’t have it all figured out, so you have to go the safe route, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to your heart. He learned the hard way what it felt like to live out of alignment with his values. Nii’s near chronic work at the hospital led him down a path he didn’t feel comfortable for happy in. He learned that he needed to balance his desire for money with his need for living his life to the fullest. Where have you spent the time that didn’t bring you joy when you could have been with your family? Do you listen to your heart? What’s worth it to you? In This Episode: What opportunity costs when you spend so much time working Why you should be confident betting on yourself What the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset is Why you have to listen to and follow your heart What happens when you don’t have it all figured out Why you need to fight for the things that are worth it What it’s like to be living out of alignment with your values How to balance your need for money with your need for life Quotes: “What are you made of? Do you really believe in yourself as a brand? Can you bet on yourself?” (7:12) “It’s really important to notice how that mindset of how what you normally do on a regular basis can still just grab hold of you. Mindset is still something you have to practice on a daily basis.” (12:17) “You have to understand what your pain points are. And once you understand what your pain points are, you have to understand and make a decision of how quickly do you want to get out of pain.” (15:57) READY TO MAKE QUIT HAPPEN? Then you’re in luck! Because my online course, Make Quit Happen, is available to start now! It’s a six-week program in which each week we tackle a different step in the strategic quitting process so that at the end of the course you know WHAT you need to quit, you have overcome any quitting-related FEARS, and you’ve got HOW to make the quit happen all planned out!

Dr. Ali Novitsky: Quitting Your Way To A Passion-Filled Life
Finding that balance between work and life might not be that easy when you work a demanding job, such as a doctor. But what happens when you decide to take back the power of having time off? Dr. Ali Novitsky joins me to talk about how she quit her thriving career in pediatrics to pursue other medical avenues, eventually leading to her successful coaching career. Ali and her husband were both working time-consuming and very demanding medical jobs that meant they had to hire multiple babysitters. Even when Ali got a new position as a medical director working from home, she still wasn’t finding the time to both be with her children and take adequate time off. When her friend asked her to go to a coaching retreat with her, however, she figured out how to make it happen. Quitting something you’ve thought you would be for your entire life, like a doctor, shook Ali’s identity. She didn’t know who she was if she wasn’t a doctor. But the decisions she’s made have led her to feel more fulfilled with purpose and direction in life. Ali now works with over-functioning female physicians to regain control of their mind, body, and relationship. She explains what the difference between therapy and life coaching is and how a coach can help their clients take action to make changes in their life - to actually give and recommend advice. One of the biggest things Ali sees is that women are afraid to ask for help. We all need to be more comfortable with actually asking for assistance when we need to. And, on this note, once we start changing the expectations we’ve set for ourselves in our own heads we can start to expand our lives. Lastly, Ali shares why it’s so important to let our vulnerabilities show. People connect with people, with real stories, with real struggles, traumas, happiness, and life. That’s why it’s okay to share your vulnerabilities with people. But it’s also important to remember that not everyone is as open, and one person’s vulnerability might look much more closed than another’s. How do you share your vulnerability? Do you have an ideal expectation for where you’re going in your life? When’s the last time you asked for help? In This Episode: How there is power in having time to have a life How making a quit, even if it’s the best decision for you, can totally shake your identity What the difference between therapy and coaching is Why you shouldn’t be afraid of asking for help when you need it What happens when you change your expectations How to understand different levels of vulnerability Why it’s okay to share your vulnerabilities Quotes: “A large proportion of the women I work with are single. They have this really difficult time because they think they should be doing more because they have less to manage. But that is not true. They’re not even equal. They shouldn’t even be linked together.” (19:25) “Asking for help is a practice that takes practice.” (32:34) “All you have to do is one time show the vulnerability. It only has to happen one time. You automatically get acclimated. Then the vulnerability does not feel scary anymore.” (36:05) READY TO MAKE QUIT HAPPEN? Then you’re in luck! Because my online course, Make Quit Happen, is available to start now! It’s a six-week program in which each week we tackle a different step in the strategic quitting process so that at the end of the course you know WHAT you need to quit, you have overcome any quitting-related FEARS, and you’ve got HOW to make the quit happen all planned out!

Quitting Outdated Scripts and Rewriting New Ones at Training Camp for the Soul
This week I talk about my recent experience at a personal development retreat called Training Camp for the Soul. It was intense work, as deep as any plant medicine work I have done, and many in attendance ended up deciding to make some big quits of their own. I focus in this episode on two big overarching quits that came up in the retreat: quitting our old scripts and quitting the stories we make up about what happens to us (that often don't serve us and which are frequently not at all based in reality).

Celebrating 100 Episodes of Quit Happens!
I'm so excited to celebrate 100 episodes (can you believe it?) of Quit Happens with you today, and to do so, I'm going to be sharing two interviews where I was the guest on other podcasts. If you're a regular listener you're probably already familiar with Mike Bledsoe of The Bledsoe Show and Josh Trent of Wellness Force. I love these two humans so much and wanted to share these two amazing conversations for you to enjoy as well. A couple links I mention that are worth checking out: Jason Goldberg's Episode And the even funnier YouTube video Show Notes From My Episode On The Bledsoe Show Dr. Lynn Marie Morski is a physician, attorney, and life-long quitting enthusiast. She practices medicine at the Veterans Administration and shares her love of strategic quitting through speaking, coaching, and her podcast Quit Happens. Her goal is to pass on the strategic quitting skills she's developed to help people go from settling to succeeding. When she's not doctoring, lawyering, or evangelizing quitting, Dr. Morski is also a certified yoga instructor, trains the Brazilian martial art of capoeira, plays guitar and bass, and dances like everyone is watching. In this episode, we talk about strategic quitting, her various careers, her book Quitting By Design, and her upcoming podcast on plant medicine Check out the full post here Show Notes From My Episode On Wellness Force “You want to live your truth as much as you can. So many people think that “quitting” is this dirty word but to me, “settling,” is the dirty word.” – Dr. Lynn Marie Morski Deep down you know it's time for a change but how can you leave a job, relationship, or educational pursuits and feel secure, safe, and happy about your quit? On Wellness Force Radio episode 247, Coach, Speaker, Author of Quitting by Design, and Host of the Quit Happens Podcast, Dr. Lynn Marie Morski, shares why quitting can be a beneficial form of self-care and discovering what works for each person, the number one reason why people don't embrace the quit, and how quitting vs. settling are two very different things Discover what a strategic quit is and how to use it to your advantage and for the benefit of your mind and body. Thousands of self-help books have been written to tell people to live their best lives, without necessarily addressing the fact that making major life changes almost always requires quitting one thing and starting another. This pain point – the quitting itself – is often the barrier to change. Many avoid quitting because they fear the unknown. Will they find another career or relationship? Will their new path provide financial stability? Will friends and family question the decision to quit? Will society see them as quitters? These questions generally go unaddressed. But that’s where Quitting by Design comes in – its sole focus is to help people through their quits successfully so they can proceed with their transformations. It’s a step-by-step guide that takes readers from deciding if there’s something they should quit all the way to preparing their health, finances, and relationships for a quiet, and it helps them conquer any fears that may pop up along the way. Dr. Lynn Marie Morski knows how to address fears and prepare your health, relationships, and finances for a quit because she's been there time and again. She has quit educational pursuits, jobs, careers, relationships, political parties…you name it; she's found a way to quit it while maximizing the benefits and minimizing the challenges associated with major life changes. And she wants nothing more than to pass these skills along to you. With this book, Dr. Morski aims to pass on what she's learned about quitting not only from her own experiences but also through interviews with others who have made successful quits themselves. She tackles the stigma surrounding quitting while highlighting what a useful and necessary tool it can be in carving out a life you enjoy. Listen To Episode 247 As Dr. Lynn Marie Morski Uncovers: Her journey as a “lifelong quitter” from going to a physician to an attorney to a law professor. The connection between mental and physical health when it comes to feeling shame. Steps we can take to just stop being so serious all the time.

Power Quotes From The Show “If you're quitting something that may seem like a dream job to others or feel this societal pressure to not quit, you have to stop and realize that the people who are going to judge you aren't you. They're not in your shoes, they're not in your head, and they're not living your life. You're the one who has to live your life; why should you let what somebody else's thoughts of you shape your existence?” – Lynn Marie Morski “Does your boss want an employee who's constantly looking for a way out? No. Do other people a favor by quitting. Quitting is actually a generous act at some point because they should want somebody in that position who wants to be in that position. If you're forcing yourself to be in this job, you're actually doing them a disservice and there's an opportunity cost for both you and them.” – Lynn Marie Morski “As a society, we're avoiding putting ourselves out there. We need to quit this facade, quit the mask, and quit this external game. Social media has made it so much worse and is doing the opposite of what it should be doing.” – Lynn Marie Morski Links From Today's Show Check out the full post here Dr. Lynn Marie Morski Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube LinkedIn Quitting by Design by Dr. Lynn Marie Morski Quit Happens Podcast So Full of Quit!
