There’s a difference between giving up just because something gets hard and knowing when it’s time to make a change in your life. That’s one of the key messages from this week’s guest, entrepreneur and speaker Christopher J. Wirth. Wirth has built his life around the “No Quit” message, but says that doesn’t mean it’s good to stick with things when they are no longer serving a useful or healthy purpose. On today’s show, he shares tips for reassessing your place in life and adjusting course, as needed, to reach your goals.
In order to make those difficult decisions with a good frame of mind, it’s important to approach challenges and uncertainty with a positive attitude. When negativity spills over into how you conceptualize your place and intentions, it can cloud the line between something that’s just tough and something that’s not right for you. We look up to people who have overcome hardships and used grit to get through tough spots, not those who have always taken the easy path. By being intentional about your environment, tribe, and mindset, you can position yourself well to take things as they come and make the best decisions you can.
What You’ll Learn:
- Approach challenges with positivity
- Learn how to reassess your position in life
- Understand when it’s time for a change
- Be intentional about your environment and people
- Practice consistency with your accountability partners

It doesn’t mean you’re quitting. It means, in essence, that you’re saving your life.” -Christopher J. Wirth
