Before the Light is Down

“Greater is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof…”

It is often said that it is not how you begin that matters most, but how you end. It is good and very important to start well but perhaps more important is to end well.

As we look toward the end of this year and make plans for the beginning of the coming year, I want to urge you to do something. Just one thing.

I believe that you have taken stock of how the year have been (if you haven’t, please do that without any further delays) and you have counted your wins and your ‘lessons’ (no losses). However, there is still room for greater victories even in these final days.

I want you to look back at the whole year and pick out just ONE GOAL that you can still accomplish before the 31st night. It doesn’t have to be a big and mighty goal (if there is any such thing). It should just be a goal that will add an extra ‘feather’ to your hat in 2017.

It could be that book that you have always wanted to read, that old friend that you know you should reconcile with, or that hanging project that you can still quickly conclude within the next few days.

By all means legitimately possible, JUST DO IT!

It will give you such positive energy to kick start the new year and you’d be glad you did.

For me, there’s this one goal I’ll be ticking off my checklist this week. So keep your fingers crossed and #Anticipate.

In Life’s Race…

In life’s race, you don’t stay ”in front” to win.
You stay ”on course” – On ”your” lane to obtain the prize.

In life’s race you don’t get disqualified for falling down.
You get disqualified for STAYING DOWN.

Life’s race requires more of STAMINA than SPEED – more of tenacity, persistence and staying power. Because Life’s race is more of a MARATHON than a SPRINT.

Life’s Race respects FOCUS over ABILITY, CLARITY over SKILL and DETERMINATION over STRENGTH.

In Life’s Race, you’re not competing against the other runners.
You’re competing against yourself AND Time.

So quit looking at the other runners, else you MISS YOUR STEP!

You will #SUCCEED.
