Quitting the Sh*! You Don’t Like Enough: Escaping Personal Growth Purgatory – a chat with Conner Moore

Sometimes podcast guests come along and they drop so much knowledge about so many quitting topics that I don’t even know where to start for the show description.

This is one of those shows.

Conner Moore, host of the Realness Podcast, talks quitting small towns and small town mindsets, quitting cities he’d just moved to, quitting owning a crossfit gym, quitting working for Onnit, quitting deep loving relationships, and basically anything else that was no longer serving him…even if he still really liked it.

The big takeaway is that once you do the work to know who you truly are, sometimes you have to quit things that aren’t serving your highest good, even though you like them.

Before you Quit, Start Again – A Chat with Lindsay Sukornyk on Quit Happens

Many of us have wanted to quit our job at some point because we knew something surrounding work wasn’t right. But sometimes it isn’t the job that’s not working, it’s something within us.

This week’s guest, transformational leadership coach Lindsay Sukornyk, has helped many people quit the mindsets and limiting beliefs that were leading to their perceived discontentment at work. That internal growth allowed them to stay in what they previously viewed as a toxic environment and led to them becoming agents of change in their original companies. Lindsay often advises that before you quit your job, see if you can start again at the same job with a fresh new outlook and mindset.

Creating Your Own Reality: Reframing Quits Through a Growth Mindset – A Chat with Jay Menez

What do a police officer, a law student and a Hollywood filmmaker have in common? This week’s guest, filmmaker, author and show host Jay Menez, has been all three…among other things!

Some of the careers he quit because he grew restless, but others he was forced to quit due to economic factors, and in those situations, he learned, through both in-person and virtual mentors, how adopting a growth mindset can change how you see what others may consider ‘failures.’

Growing through Change: How Parents’ Quits Can Set Children up for Success – A Chat with Skip Kelly

Have you ever called and thanked your parents for being quitters?

Do I now have your attention?

Well this week’s guest, filmmaker Skip Kelly, certainly had mine when he told the story of how he realized that his parents’ willingness to divorce, in the face of the numerous difficulties that came with separating his family, had set the best example for him as a child of how to not settle and how to persevere until you find what truly fits for you.

It’s a touching and incredible story you have to hear.

Surfing Life’s Waves: Strategically Quitting Your Way to Resilience – A Chat with Emilio Palafox

We’re all familiar with the “we’ll be happy when” mindset. But what happens when you’ve got the job, the money, the condo, and you realize that all along you were living other people’s lives and not your own?

This week’s guest, Emilio Palafox, speaker on resilience and Channel Development Manager of Pulse Centers, hit just that spot. At which point he strategically quit anything that wasn’t in line with who he knew he was, which required years of self-worth that led him to realize the importance of fostering resilience in being able to ride whatever waves life throws your way.

Btw, here’s a gratuitous pic of Emilio doing a capoeira move that I thought was badass!!

You Are Not Your Job: How to Quit Your Career Without Losing Your Identity – A Quit Happens Chat with Kirsten Asher

We know the drill all too well – you meet someone new and they ask you what you do, as if what you do gives them a great idea of who you are. The idea of equating job with identity is so pervasive that the fear of losing an identity can keep people stuck in jobs that aren’t right for them for years.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. This week’s guest, Kirsten Asher of the Feminine Embodiment Method and the Art of Being Feminine, describes how part of the self-work she did through the course of several career transitions was to realize that who she was didn’t depend on what she did, it was instead a reflection of her morals and values.

Quitting Your Way to Greatness: When Your Mission is Larger than Your Fears – A Chat with Mike Sherbakov

Have you ever had that feeling that something was off? That somehow your thoughts and words and actions weren’t aligning with who you knew you were? That you were destined for greatness but not yet approaching it?

This week’s guest, Greatness Foundation founder Mike Sherbakov, calls that feeling “divine discomfort.” And he suggests that instead of suppressing that feeling, take note and ask what you could do to get more in line with your passions and purpose, which requires refining your ability to listen to your body and follow your intuition…and quit whatever is keeping you out of alignment!

Mending your Mindset: How One Doctor Quit Hiding Behind the White Coat – A Chat with Dr. Kien Vuu

The number of physicians who are reaching burnout is staggering, and it’s no surprise, as medical schools only recently began teaching students how to be well and take care of themselves. But another reason is often that the pressure put on doctors to be perfect and fulfill society’s expectations is often crushing.

This week’s guest, Dr. Kien Vuu, was headed down a less-than-healthy road himself when he realized part of why he went into medicine was to treat his “not enough-ness.” It took quitting that mindset and cultivating an attitude of success and gratitude to be able to turn his life around and become the true healer he knew he was inside.

Quitting as Self-Care


A few years ago the term self-care appeared as a means of describing anything that a person does to take care of themselves, like getting a massage, meditating, going for a walk in nature, or taking a relaxing bath in essential oils. All of the above are great ways to improve your physical and emotional health; however, they are often used not as a way to improve health, but to undo the damage caused by underlying stresses and simply restore one’s previous level of health.

Take meditation. It’s a practice that has been used for millennia as a means of trying to reach an enlightened state. But what do we often use it for now? As a means to calm ourselves down after an argument with a significant other or a way to gain a glimpse of equanimity before what we know will be a tough day at work.

In the above instances, meditation isn’t being used to take us to a higher place, it’s being used to get us back to baseline. And then the next day, when our job or our toxic relationships drag us back into sadness or anxiety, we use it again to bring us back up.

This is akin to using Tylenol to treat cancer. Cancer causes pain, so we take Tylenol to relieve the pain. This treats only the symptoms and ensures that we’re going to have to take Tylenol again and again each time the pain arises.

How would we stop that cycle? By curing the cancer.

Similarly, you can’t massage away a bad job and you can’t journal away a toxic relationship. In both instances, you’re merely treating the symptoms.

What’s the cure? Quitting.

Quit the job that’s taken your sanity day after day. Quit the relationships that have led you to the negative self-talk that requires hours of journaling and meditation to sort out.

Because all of the above self-care tools are amazing in their own rights, but are so much more helpful in improving your physical and mental health if you’re starting from a more stable baseline — which requires taking a good look (often through journaling!) at what is disturbing your peace.

So next time something has you anxious or depressed, grab that journal and write down what led to that feeling. Then start analyzing whether the cause can be quit. You may need a job-ectomy, or to have some toxic friends surgically removed from your friend circle.

And after you do, be sure to light some candles, throw some essential oils in a bathtub, and meditate your way to enlightenment — free of whatever was holding you back!

Leaving Silicon Valley to Find Joy in Bali – A Chat with Anshu Singh

Have you ever loved your job but been less than fond of the environment at your workplace? Sometimes it’s not the work we don’t love, it’s the culture that comes with that work.

This week’s guest, author Anshu Singh, loved her job in Silicon Valley – but after having her first child, she realized that the cutthroat, competitive environment there was no longer a good fit for the nurturing nature her new role as mother had uncovered.

What did she do? She packed up her entire family and created an entirely new life for herself in Bali where she helps people be more vital and healthy and connected with pleasure!
