Finish strong

When the challenges become more difficult, that’s your opportunity to become more determined. When the end of the race is near, the winner is the person who picks up the pace.

It’s easy and common to start out strong. Real achievement comes to those who can also finish strong.

The doubts and challenges along the way can either drain your enthusiasm and commitment, or they can prompt you to grow stronger. When you choose to grow stronger, not only do you reach the goal, you also become more confident and effective in the process.

When you’ve gone this far, it pays to make the most of what you’ve already been through. Get maximum value from your efforts by finishing strong.

When the endeavor is nearing completion is when you can add the most discernible and enduring value. Finish strong and make it something you can always look back upon with satisfaction.

Your efforts so far have created a powerful momentum, so continue to make the most of it. Finish strong and you’ll be fully prepared for whatever is next.

— Ralph Marston
