“Quitting is not giving up; it’s choosing to focus your attention on something more important. Quitting is not losing confidence, it’s realizing that there are more valuable ways you can spend your time. Quitting is not making excuses; it’s learning to be more productive, effective, and efficient instead. Quitting is letting go of things or people that are sucking the life out of you so that you can do things that bring you strength.’’ Osayi Osar-Emokpae.
