Worried about being a "quitter?" Read this.Apr 17, 2022
How do you know when it’s time to give up on a dream?
It’s such a difficult question! Is it when it gets too hard? When too many doors close? When you stop caring about it? When you hate the journey? When you start getting that feeling in your gut that says, “I don’t think I like this…”
There’s such stigma around quitting in our society. I think most of us have heard things like:
Quitters never prosper.
Quitters never win and winners never quit.
Don’t be a quitter.
There’s a ton of stress around walking away from a dream even when deep down we know it’s the right decision.
When you let go of an old dream, you make space for a new one.
This is one of the topics I got into with Krista Huss, owner of Huss Family Farms, on my podcast. Krista’s dream was to be a nurse and she started working on that dream right out of high school, only to have doors close in her face. If you had asked that version of Past Krista if she wanted to raise chicken and goats, she would’ve laughed until she cried. Because, no. She definitely did NOT want that.
Flash Forward a handful of years and she’s living a new dream with lots of chickens and goats and hopes to open an Agri-Tourism Farm in the future. She’s taken to Instagram to share her sense of humor and educate people about farm life and it’s really working out for her!
At the beginning of the year, she had 1500 followers (that’s when I found her on Instagram). Only 4 months later, she’s got 30,000 followers. She’s sharing her passion, educating on a topic that matters to her, and building new dreams.
If you are struggling with doors closing or just want to learn about how she’s getting all these followers on Instagram, make sure you check out our conversation!
