Resigned about Quitting….

Does admitting failure make you a ‘loser’, ‘quitter’, ‘wimp’, etc.? Is it true that ‘quitters never win’ and winners really ‘never quit’ or do winners find a different way?

I resigned from a job yesterday. On the whole, I think I did the job as well as I could given the circumstances, and yet I failed to accomplish what I expected of myself and what I think others expected. I am staying with the organization despite the fact that I will be ‘labeled’ once again, but then small towns love to label and it’s not really a very big deal in the cosmic scheme of things. Actually, neither is the resignation come to think of it.

One or two questions pop to mind though.  Are the people I’ve tried to serve the last 8 years better off, or worse off? You can ask the very same question about the people I am going to serve.
