  • Holy shit, your childhood is the dream. I wish my family had any money for me to try any of those hobbies. I had to wait until I was 16 and start making my own money to take up my hobbies.

  • hang on so passion isnt just out there waiting, you have to foster it but you foster passion by trying lots of things and quitting most of them until you find something youre passionate about? that seems contradictory

  • I was talking today to another manager at my work and i was telling him how most of my life i just gave up on stuff. But since he has been mentoring me he has taught me that if you just push through the bad a little long and try to fix what you can eventually things will turn around and get better.

  • This is definitely true. A few years ago I had a try at learning the guitar. I felt like I was getting no where with it and I didn't have enough passion for it to carry on. I was doing it for no reason other then just wanting to look cool. A few years later I had developed a passion for music and began to leave and breathe it and everything surrounding it. This time around, because I was very passionate about it after really getting into music for around 2 years. I picked up the guitar again and I haven't stopped since and I've been playing for around a year now. Great video Mike!

I’ve been into animation, music, model railways, art, and it gives you an appreciation or what’s out there. I cycle through a select few things and continue where I left off. I’m working on holding these for longer.

  • I dont believe in that “be a quitter” crap. I think if youre gonna try something then set a goal within that activity. For example martial arts, set a goal to get a certain belt, once youve reached it then you can say youve accomplished your goal and “quit” without actually quitting. Youve accomplished what you set out to do therefore youre not actually a quitter. And if you choose to go further then even better.

  • I think for some people its hard to quit. Ive had the opposite experience, I have a lack of exploration and dont really have a want to explore multiple interests and skills. Most of that is derived from anxiety though. What you said really resonated with me even though I share almost nothing in common with what you said. And I think thats because I know youre completely right, but to get over the hurdle of anxiety is a huge battle in and of itself.

  • Thanks Mike, this really hit close to home. I'm sick of seeing the same old self help videos all saying the same thing, quoting the same people. All the self help videos are; 1. get motivated 2. don't give up 3. ??? 4. success!! Your videos show the grind and the struggle necessary to succeed. LOVE IT!

  • My opinion is it’s not quitting if you finish out, say a season or a milestone, I think quitting is stopping halfway through with a bad attitude or not finishing out. Let me know what you think

  • Loved the vid. You should really try to get into the hobby of cubing. Being able to do the rubik's cube is very cool and impressive to people, and it is even more impressive when you stick with it and memorize the crap out of it. It is also very fun, and somewhat addicting

  • My parents think I’m gonna be the most worthless piece of shit bc I have no “drive”. I always say that’s due to the fact that I haven’t found something that I want to put exceptional effort into. I’m a lot like this. I try different things and I realize it’s not for me and stop doing it and I’m labeled a quitter or a loser. This video reassured me that I may have not found what I truly want to do

  • I think you're like me: a scanner, or polymath, or multipotentialite. This world of specialists makes some people struggle because they're told to choose one thing and stick with it for the rest of their lives. I think this channel is working for you because it allows you a way to keep trying new things for the new videos, and that's what we, scanners, enjoy doing the most: learning new things (and only then quitting ;) ).
