Rachele Brooke Smith: How to Flip the Fear Through Creativity and Disruptive Thinking | Quit Happens

Rachele Brooke Smith’s life changed when she saw Center Stage as a teenager, as it made her realize she wanted to be a dancer and an actress. And despite years of getting what seemed like no closer to her dream, she continued to show up and audition, despite how much her self-talk tried to keep her down. One day, she finally realized that dream, getting cast in the lead of Center Stage 2!

Through this and many other experiences, Rachele realized that to create her life as she wanted it to be, she would have to fight through fears. Now, when fear arises, she envisions how much worse it would feel to miss out on opportunities like the audition for Center Stage 2 that she almost didn’t attend. With that in mind, she’s able to disrupt negative thoughts and let her creative superpowers run free.

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.

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.

Mark Guay: Manifesting a New Environment: The Cautious Cross-Country Quit | Quit Happens

If you’re not in your dream job or your ideal city, you may think of quitting it all and moving. But how do you get to where you’d like to be…and how do you know that new reality is going to serve you better than the current one?

This week’s guest, entrepreneur and storytelling consultant Mark Guay, knew he had to leave New York and his teaching career. So he began to envision living in a new climate and working from home. And over time, the exact visions he’d been manifesting slowly became reality.

Here’s the Insight Timer he refers to on the podcast.

Dominick Quartuccio: Finding Your Passion Without Looking: Preventing ‘Purpose-Finding Panic’ | Quit Happens

People commonly get stuck in jobs or careers because they don’t know what they’d rather be doing…in other words, they haven’t found their passion or purpose or calling in life. And often the struggle to find that passion leads to a feeling of desperation if nothing comes up right away.

Well this week’s guest, author/speaker/coach extraordinaire Dominick Quartuccio, went through a strategic quit of his own in which he stumbled upon a creative way to let his passion find him.

This is a must-hear for anyone who’s searching for their purpose!

Dr. Amit Patel: Realigning Priorities: One Plastic Surgeon Gives His Career A Makeover | Quit Happens

Many of us have passions in several different areas, but the traditional 40-hour workweeks keep us from having time to pursue more than one calling. And for certain professions, like surgeons, the typical week doesn’t stop at 40 hours, so starting a side project is nearly impossible.

But this week’s guest, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Amit Patel, used a very strategic quit to ensure he had time to pursue multiple passions. His story is a testament to the importance of exploring all possibilities when carving out a career path.

Dr. Amy Killen: Quitting the ER to Resuscitate Her Life: One Doctor’s Reinvention | Quit Happens

The journey to become a physician is long and often times immovable. Medical students choose residencies that are up to 7 years long, and changing them is no small undertaking. And after graduating from a residency, changing specialties often requires doing an entire new residency, so most doctors just stay in their original specialty, no matter how unfulfilled they may be feeling.

But not this week’s guest, Dr. Amy Killen. Amy found a creative solution to dissatisfaction with her life in the ER, and her story should give hope to all doctors whose specialties no longer fit their lives.

Travis Roznos: Just Do Something: How to Jumpstart Your Quit | Quit Happens

So you think you wanna quit? Have you fallen into the trap many of us do in which we begin to compile more and more information about how to make a change…without ever putting it into action?

This week’s guest, Travis Roznos, started down that road, but through men’s groups and the Wim Hof Method training, he discovered that no amount of research got him further along in his transformation than going from the theoretical to the concrete and finally doing the work.

Sarah Hassaine: Seeing Quitting as Success: Lessons Learned from Listening to your Gut | Quit Happens

In an ideal situation, quits don’t happen TO us, they’re orchestrated BY us. However, sometimes we’re forced into a quit, and it’s then up to us to learn from that experience and use what we’ve learned the next time things need a change.

This week’s guest, Sarah Hassaine, did just that. When life dealt her a quit she didn’t see coming, she took everything she learned from that situation and used it when she later found herself in a job that wasn’t working for her.
