Mental Weakness (The Quitter)
Whether or not someone is a quitter is found in their character and work ethic. This judgement may make some uncomfortable but it’s pretty easy to spot and every team must consider if they want to take someone along that isn’t capable of the effort necessary to succeed. Quitting is an indicator of whether or not someone will stick it out when things get difficult. Quitters are not bad people. The reality is that some people are just not cut out for “hanging in there” because they lack the experience that would develop their character to push through the hard moments. Teams need to consider this reality when choosing their teammates. Do I need people to develop mental toughness or do I just need to recruit mentally tough people?
