It doesn’t take much to be a quitter. Anyone can lay down.
Losers are a dime a dozen. They will continue to quit again and again.
But to rise up in the face of adversity takes guts.
Dont quit as you are already in pain.
You might as well stick it out and get a reward from it. DFQ
DFQ obviously means “Don’t Freakin’ Quit.
In times of hardship and difficulty you may substitute other words.
Others will fold at the moment of hard times..but you know that hardship will not last as long as you can not quit.
I dare you to take a little pain. I dare you.
It is time to become a man, a woman, and stand up and not freakin’ quit.
SGPT Homework: Pick a tough event or workout. Go out and perform. When you feel the urge to slow down or feel yourself hurting… tell yourself in your mind “I am strong, I will not slow down. I am strong, I will not quit”. Keep repeating that internal chant and you will continue to move forward and finish the drill.
Question: Do you have any books that you recommend to learn more about how not to quit?
Yes; we highly recommend Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10.
I would read this book several times and underline sections that have lessons. This book shows you in real life how important it is not to quit.
