While we know we should not quit, it is important to identify where all our efforts need to be put in first.
There are many things we chase after – money, status, promotion, bonus, relationships, properties and what not.
We cannot get eveything. But we can perhaps get what we want if we choose wisely and work with full focus.
This choosing, implicitly involves “quitting” some things. Which is great.
But my Guru says that all of these need to be quit. Not necessarily physically, but mentally. All the attachments to the material world need to be quit. It takes an insane amount of grit to do that. More than the grit required to succeed in any material discipline.
So, from a spiritual point of view, it’s really not a question of Grit versus Quit. It’s always Grit and Quit.
