In a race, the sprinter’s focus is to get to the Finish Line, usually marked with a tape. Every good sprinter aims to breast the tape first, and even if he doesn’t get to the tape first, he wants to get to it eventually. No sprinter is happy dropping out of the race! Run your race to the end. Don’t give up. Don’t quit. Don’t worry about those who have crossed the line, worry about you crossing the line.
In life, we must live as though there is no finish line to cross and we must also live like there is a finish line. Two conflicting perspectives, isn’t it? Well that is how life works. First, there is no finish line to greatness. There is a saying that “the finish line is just the beginning of a whole new race.” Sometimes the greatest disaster for a man is to assumed he has crossed the finish line when there are still more races to run. Don’t ever get to a stage in life, where you feel you have seen it all, heard it all, known it all or experienced it all. No, you haven’t. There is still another life out there. Don’t become complacent with success. Make crossing the finish line a life habit. Do you know that even when you cross from life to death, you just begin another life?
Second perspective is to always aim to cross the finish line. “If you say you are going to do something, you do it. If you start it, you finish it. Yes Sir. No Ma’am. And you’ve got to have that kind of structure in your life. It kind of helped me be that disciplined person I am, whether it’s with workouts, film or just the game of football. ” Robert Griffin III. Always finish anything you start. Always make sure you cross the finish line of every goal you set. You cannot make any serious headway in life, if you are not disciplined enough to finish a task. See yours goals or tasks as races that you must participate in and run to the end. Being the first to cross the finish line makes it even more better. Set your eyes on the finish line and disregard the distractions on the way.
In conclusion, in life you have finish lines for our goals, yet there is no finish line to greatness itself. Do you want to be great? Then you must be ready for an endless journey.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
