S.M.  "What if I told you that if you are brave enough to follow your dreams and you do what you know is right you will always win, no matter what the outcome is, and no matter if everyone else thinks you are crazy? My dear invisible friend, I want to share with you a story. I want to show you how Quantum Psychology can change everything you take for granted in the world as we know it. I'm offering you to be part of my personal journey, raising questions that will challenge your own perceptions. The moment is here and now, but the concepts of time and space can be elusive, as we will learn... Because this is a story about time, space and true interpersonal connections, and how the 3 of them, which we take for granted, can be deceiving even when an alternative truth lays in front of you. This is a dairy, a window to perceive the world from a different perspective than we have been biologically designed to. If you expect me to inspire or guide you, stop reading now; because I am determined to prove that the power to write destiny lies within each one of us. This will not be a comfortable or easy quest, filled with frustration and defeat. But remember that failure doesn't come from defeat; failure only comes from not trying or giving up on what you know as true. Are you ready to endeavor this journey with me? Our path to change the world starts here, it is all your choice..."

I Quit! The Life-Affirming Joy of Giving Up is a collection of stories of real people and how they summoned the courage to quit things in their lives. My name is Coonoor Behal and I am the author of I Quit! The Life-Affirming Joy of Giving Up. I wrote this book because I’ve always loved quitting stories. I think learning the WHYs behind someone quitting something gets to the heart of who that person is and what their values are. I’ve also experienced quitting as a very positive experience in my own life - it’s always represented progress toward what I want in life. I knew I couldn’t be the only one out there who had a different view on quitting. Turns out I was right! My hope is that, in reading this book, you will discover that quitting doesn’t deserve the stigma or shame society gives it...and that “quitters” are often to be celebrated for their courage, strength, and self-knowledge. In this book, I hope to instill in you the same sort of passion and excitement that I have for rethinking quitting. Ultimately, I want you to see this book as a tool to help you re-examine the things you quit - and don’t quit - in your life. Quitting is a choice...but so is not quitting.
