The No Quit Formula

The No Quit Formula
By Eddie Lawrence

A few years ago I heard a missionary by the name of Allen Skelton share a sermon out of Galatians 6:9 which really spoke to my heart. What I really remember him saying that has stuck with me is, "If you don't quit, you won't fail!"

I think it is so important to have an "Anti-Quit" attitude.

Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." (NKJV)

See, there it is, if you don't quit, you want fail. It seems that this is an attribute that people possess who really accomplish things in life.

There are three very simple ways you can avoid experiencing failure:

1. Never start anything.

This is the one for the real whimps.

The people who never start anything usually do. They start trouble for others by criticizing and complaining about what somebody else should do.

This is not a viable option because it is deception. When you do not take the courageous steps you should to do what has been placed in your heart to do, you will always be frustrated at your self and others. Living a life of frustration is a miserable way to avoid risking success. So do something, but not the wrong thing which brings us to the next piece of advice.

2. Never start anything with a wrong end in view.

This can keep you out of lots of trouble.

Notice the context of the above verse is about doing good and to keep on doing good.

-Starting something in order to harm or somehow disrupt the lives of others is to be avoided.
-We all are tempted to start out in wrong directions with our lives. Do a U-turn if you do.

-We all -An affair would not damage or end a marriage if it was never started.
-A man would not have lost his paycheck had he not bet that first dollar.

Look at the end of the road you are thinking about traveling on before you press the accelerator.

3. Never stop what you start until you do what you set out to do.

This can help you accomplish more than you can imagine.

-This does not mean there will not be times when you fall down, but you get back up and keep going.
-This does not mean there will not be set backs, but you will not stay on your back.
-This does not mean that you will not be knocked out, but you will whiff some smelling salts and get up and start swinging again.

Think of Paul and all he went through. Thank God he did not quit. He died with a sword falling on his neck, but the words he wrote while waiting for that to happen still encourage people all around the world. He did what he could do as long as he could do it, and then breathed his last. That's a success!

There are dreams inside of you as well my friend. What potential you possess. You can do it! You can do all things through Christ who is your strength. Search your heart for that destination God has placed inside you. It is the thing that makes your spirit leap, and your heart come alive. Go for it!

So, develop an "Anti-Quit" Attitude. READY? Then get started with it……
