Don’t Quit Advice

Don’t Quit Advice

Be your own personal development trainer!

Parents hepling kids - Don't quitOkay, a mother’s advice is good advice. So what else is new?

Well, according to all the personal development/self-help trainers out there, not very much.  They’ve all been telling you the same thing for about the last 100 years or so. But in today’s world you need more than that.

See, what all the great personal development leaders seem to enjoy talking about is how your continued persistence will lead eventually to success. Good stuff for sure but what I’ve noticed is that when promoting advice like this it can trigger one great unanswered fundamental question:

What exactly is persistence anyway?

This is a thorny question but it begged to be answered. It took me a little time – about two decades – to get it as close to being right as I could bring it because along the way other seriously big questions were raised as well.

Questions like:

  • What is the nature of persistence and determination?
  • Can these attributes be taught at home or in a classroom?
  • How can we make it so that either of these show up more often ?

The answers to these questions are not what you’d expect. Persistence as it turns out, is  not a simple two-dimensional object like the words on this page are.  That’s why it’s a bummer to teach in school. It’s a three-dimensional drive of pure energy but that’s only the short answer. You need and deserve a lot more – and that’s exactly what you’ll find in my new book “The Gut Brain Balm – The Surprising Discovery Of The Soothing Power Of A Second Brain You Didn’t Know You Had.

Coming soon.  Stay tuned.

More Power to you.
