Jason Goldberg: So Full of Quit! Laughing, Learning (and Rapping!) through Life’s Transitions | Quit Happens

Often the transitions in life, and the quitting that comes along with them, can seem very heavy.  The weight of concerns about everything from finances to loss of identity can intensify a trying time.

Enter Jason Goldberg. This speaker, author, transformational coach and self-proclaimed edu-tainer is here to inject a spirit of play into those times. He suggests that the more we can have a casual relationship with our psychology, the more we can relax enough to see possibilities and solutions that may have eluded us before.

A few of the points Jason and I covered (between doing ’30 Rock’ impressions of varying quality!):

  • Financial tips for how to make a smooth transition between jobs or when leaving a job to start your own business
  • Overcoming fears of losing your identity when you’ve equated your net worth with your self-worth
  • How quality comes from quantity in trying out new skills like Facebook live
  • That you can be both slowed down in the moment (ie. mindful) without being low-energy
  • How slowing down on your ‘yesses’ can prevent having to say NO
  • The benefits of bringing a spirit of play and levity and lightness to your business
  • How having a more casual relationship with our psychology can help us expand our vision and what we see as possible

Giovanna Rossi: Get Clear on Your Identity and Watch the Quits Flow | Quit Happens

I am forever grateful to this week’s guest, NPR’s Well Woman Show host Giovanna Rossi, for being the first to discuss how quitting a mindset led to her quitting SMOKING! Because behind most bad habits is a limiting belief or out-of-alignment situation that needs to go that’s leading to reaching for something unhealthy, be it cigarettes, too much alcohol, gambling, or junk food.

Giovanna found that getting real with herself and getting clear on her true identity helped her quit an identity she’d been protecting, and the smoking that came along with it. Once she started peeling the layers away, it because easy to keep going and keep the quits flowing.

Conner Moore: Quitting the Sh*! You Don’t Like Enough: Escaping Personal Growth Purgatory | Quit Happens

Sometimes podcast guests come along and they drop so much knowledge about so many quitting topics that I don’t even know where to start for the show description.

This is one of those shows.

Conner Moore, host of the Realness Podcast, talks quitting small towns and small town mindsets, quitting cities he’d just moved to, quitting owning a crossfit gym, quitting working for Onnit, quitting deep loving relationships, and basically anything else that was no longer serving him…even if he still really liked it.

The big takeaway is that once you do the work to know who you truly are, sometimes you have to quit things that aren’t serving your highest good, even though you like them.

Lindsay Sukornyk: Before you Quit, Start Again | Quit Happens

Many of us have wanted to quit our job at some point because we knew something surrounding work wasn’t right. But sometimes it isn’t the job that’s not working, it’s something within us.

This week’s guest, transformational leadership coach Lindsay Sukornyk, has helped many people quit the mindsets and limiting beliefs that were leading to their perceived discontentment at work. That internal growth allowed them to stay in what they previously viewed as a toxic environment and led to them becoming agents of change in their original companies. Lindsay often advises that before you quit your job, see if you can start again at the same job with a fresh new outlook and mindset.

Jay Menez: Creating Your Own Reality: Reframing Quits Through a Growth Mindset | Quit Happens

What do a police officer, a law student and a Hollywood filmmaker have in common? This week’s guest, filmmaker, author and show host Jay Menez, has been all three…among other things!

Some of the careers he quit because he grew restless, but others he was forced to quit due to economic factors, and in those situations, he learned, through both in-person and virtual mentors, how adopting a growth mindset can change how you see what others may consider ‘failures.’

Skip Kelly: Growing through Change: How Parents’ Quits Can Set Children up for Success | Quit Happens

Have you ever called and thanked your parents for being quitters?

Do I now have your attention?

Well this week’s guest, filmmaker Skip Kelly, certainly had mine when he told the story of how he realized that his parents’ willingness to divorce, in the face of the numerous difficulties that came with separating his family, had set the best example for him as a child of how to not settle and how to persevere until you find what truly fits for you.

It’s a touching and incredible story you have to hear.

Emilio Palafox: Surfing Life’s Waves: Strategically Quitting Your Way to Resilience | Quit Happens

We’re all familiar with the “we’ll be happy when” mindset. But what happens when you’ve got the job, the money, the condo, and you realize that all along you were living other people’s lives and not your own?

This week’s guest, Emilio Palafox, speaker on resilience and Channel Development Manager of Pulse Centers, hit just that spot. At which point he strategically quit anything that wasn’t in line with who he knew he was, which required years of self-worth that led him to realize the importance of fostering resilience in being able to ride whatever waves life throws your way.

Btw, here’s a gratuitous pic of Emilio doing a capoeira move that I thought was badass!!

Kirsten Asher: You Are Not Your Job: How to Quit Your Career Without Losing Your Identity | Quit Happens

We know the drill all too well – you meet someone new and they ask you what you do, as if what you do gives them a great idea of who you are. The idea of equating job with identity is so pervasive that the fear of losing an identity can keep people stuck in jobs that aren’t right for them for years.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. This week’s guest, Kirsten Asher of the Feminine Embodiment Method and the Art of Being Feminine, describes how part of the self-work she did through the course of several career transitions was to realize that who she was didn’t depend on what she did, it was instead a reflection of her morals and values.

Mike Sherbakov: Quitting Your Way to Greatness: When Your Mission is Larger than Your Fears | Quit Happens

Have you ever had that feeling that something was off? That somehow your thoughts and words and actions weren’t aligning with who you knew you were? That you were destined for greatness but not yet approaching it?

This week’s guest, Greatness Foundation founder Mike Sherbakov, calls that feeling “divine discomfort.” And he suggests that instead of suppressing that feeling, take note and ask what you could do to get more in line with your passions and purpose, which requires refining your ability to listen to your body and follow your intuition…and quit whatever is keeping you out of alignment!

Dr. Kien Vuu: Mending your Mindset: How One Doctor Quit Hiding Behind the White Coat | Quit Happens

The number of physicians who are reaching burnout is staggering, and it’s no surprise, as medical schools only recently began teaching students how to be well and take care of themselves. But another reason is often that the pressure put on doctors to be perfect and fulfill society’s expectations is often crushing.

This week’s guest, Dr. Kien Vuu, was headed down a less-than-healthy road himself when he realized part of why he went into medicine was to treat his “not enough-ness.” It took quitting that mindset and cultivating an attitude of success and gratitude to be able to turn his life around and become the true healer he knew he was inside.
