“When it’s time for me to walk away from something, I walk away from it. My mind, my body, my conscience tell me that enough is enough.” – Jerry West

Knowing when to walk away from something is vitally important to anyone’s personal welfare, and sometimes the welfare of the people with who they work, collaborate, team with or even with whom they dream.

Walking away might include walking away from a job, a person, a family, a situation, an organization that may have intentions not aligned with yours, etc…but sometime you just have to do it.  It might not be easy and you might endure some internal turmoil from making the decision but my thought is that if you honestly feel that something isn’t good for you in general than there is no compromise, you just have to do it.  In saying that, it’s also important to ensure that you do as little damage to others’ hopes and motivations along the way because they might not have the same thoughts as you, but that’s okay.

You have to do what is best for you.  If you’re not happy and improving yourself when you can then no one can change that but you.  If I am doing something day in and day out or surrounding myself with bad “vibes” on a consistent basis I’m clearly responsible for letting that happen, no one else..

Sometime decisions that seem so right are often very hard to follow through with.  I have been guilty of putting myself in uncomfortable circumstances for the sake of not wanting to let others down but have ultimately let myself down in the process.  I try not to do that these days and feel good about it.

When I choose to walk away from something I know it’s right because I can feel it in my mind, body and soul.  Not only that but I can sleep well at night and look at myself proudly in the morning!

Have a great day and BE STRONG!
