Doug Nickle: A Major League Quit: An MLB Pitcher Walks Away on His Own Terms | Quit Happens

Many kids dream of becoming professional athletes when they grow up, assuming that it would be a dream job that they could never imagine leaving before they were forced out.

Which is what makes former Major League Baseball pitcher Doug Nickle’s story all the more incredible. He had the dream job and quit it – not because he could no longer play, but because he realized he was more than just a baseball player. He wanted to determine what success was on his own terms, with no conditions.

It’s a great story for anyone struggling with a dream job that may no longer be *their* dream.

Here’s a pic of Doug in his rookie year:

Dr. Brenda Walding: Quit Living According to Others to Start Healing Yourself | Quit Happens

If you’ve ever been hit by a massive health crisis, you may have experienced being given medical advice by trusted sources that just didn’t feel right to you. Dr. Brenda Walding had that same experience when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she realized that to save her own life, she’d have to quit handing over supreme authority over her body and start listening to her heart.

Through her journey she was able to quit making decisions out of fear, quit living according to others’ ideas of success and happiness, and found a way to turn cancer into a divine opportunity. It’s a beautiful story that should empower anyone facing their own health issues to start their own self-directed healing.

Dr. Darshan Shah: Revolutionizing Health Optimization: Helping Society Quit Being Sick | Quit Happens

Medical school spends four years teaching doctors how to treat disease, but almost no time teaching the wellness practices that can prevent disease before it starts. So when Next Health founder Dr. Darshan Shah found himself starting to develop health issues, he decided to educate himself on how to modify his lifestyle to optimize his health.

His quest was so successful that he became passionate about changing our model of healthcare from one that focuses on treating disease to one of health optimization, eventually taking his mission to help society quit being sick to the next level by opening health optimization centers to empower patients to take their wellness into their own hands.

Amrit Sandhu: How to Let Go of Lying and Lead a Life of Integrity | Quit Happens

Have you ever told a lie and then felt that tension – the friction that comes from knowing you’re living out of integrity? Imagine the cumulative stress from lying not only to others, even if small lies, but to yourself – all in the name of preserving appearances and keeping others happy.

This was the situation Mindvalley coach and podcast host Amrit Sandhu found himself in when a diagnosis of depression led him to take a hard look at his life. He was able to see the diagnosis as a positive, as it led to the personal development work that has brought him into alignment and which he teaches others today.

Drew Manning: Quitting Shame Through Changing Your Self-Perception | Quit Happens

We’ve all felt guilt before. Guilt is the feeling we did something bad. But shame is an even more detrimental emotion, as it tells us that we ARE something bad. And whether we grew up in strict families or strict religions or strict societies, there’s never been a shortage of places to help us shovel shame onto ourselves.

But there’s hope. This week’s guest, author, podcast host and fitness expert Drew Manning, battled immense shame from a young age through growing up in a very shame-based environment, which led to feelings that he was a failure…which, as he points out, led him to participate in failure-type behaviors, like pornography overuse and infidelity. And through his own recovery from his porn addiction and in the personal development he underwent during that time, Drew has learned that shame can be overcome by changing your stories and your perception.

He tells a story of how truly learning to love and accept himself, along with shining a light on the things he’d been ashamed about, led him to release the shame he felt and helped him live an authentic life.

Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley: It’s Never Been a Better Time to Be Confused About What You Want | Quit Happens

Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley has always refused to settle. In medical school, she realized patient care wasn’t for her…which was a difficult realization for someone on the road to becoming a doctor. Deciding NOT to settle for a job with patient care led her down a path through more schooling, then through a leapfrog job, and eventually on to what she does now – helping mid-career professionals make career transitions using the techniques she’d picked up along her journey.

She points out that it’s a great time to not know what you want to do, as you no longer need another degree to do something different. She encourages thinking about ways to educate yourself outside of the debt-ridden educational system, and also points out that it has never been easier to go get experience in careers of your choice.

And lastly, she helps professionals wrestle with the loss of identity often experienced when leaving a high-profile professional career – which often includes pointing out both that they can always go back, but also, reminding them to look at what they’re running toward…which is generally a happier, healthier work life.

Stefanos Sifandos: Quitting Who You’ve Been to Reveal Who You’re Meant To Become | Quit Happens

Transformational facilitator Stef Sifandos knew things had to change. He no longer wanted to be the person that he had been, one who was unfaithful, mistrusting, and full of shame. But to be someone he’d never been, he’d have to start doing things he’d never done – which started with letting go of old patterns, quitting mindsets and friendships that no longer served him, and setting his attention and intention on revealing the authentic person he was deep inside.

Through his own transformation, he developed a deep understanding of relationships and realized he had to move from selfishness to selfish selflessness, a lesson he passes along to others through his work today.

Maddy Moon: Releasing Control; Regaining True Health | Quit Happens

 

It’s a new year, which is often when people begin adopting clean eating and exercise habits in the name of becoming healthy. But what happens when the habits that were once aimed at bringing health are taken too far? Disordered eating, body image issues, and orthorexia (an obsession with eating foods that one considers healthy) can develop, sabotaging true emotional, mental and physical health.

Maddy Moon, an author, podcast host, retreat leader and transformational life coach, was involved in all of the above, and when she decided it was time to quit, the first step was realizing that the same force was driving all of those behaviors: the need for control. Listen to the story of her journey out of the realms of pain and into the realms of pleasure where she found love for herself and her body.

Josh Trent: Telling His Truth: One Wellness Warrior’s Growth Through Impactful Change | Quit Happens

“There’s more to life than this.”

That ONE thought sent Wellness Force founder and host Josh Trent on a journey of self-exploration and creation that has allowed him to grow through the discomfort of the changes life has thrown his way. He has learned that the only way he can heal and evolve and expand his consciousness is simply to tell the truth until it’s no longer uncomfortable.

Thanks to the multitude of experiences along his journey, including the many quits he’s faced along the way, Josh is now able to speak and share from a place he’s been, which is evident in the wisdom he shares as one of today’s strongest voices in the movement of emotional and physical intelligence.
