Finish strong

The person who wins the race does not slow down, but speeds up, when nearing the end. When the challenges become more difficult, the winning response is to become more determined.

Achievement belongs to those who finish strong. Achievement comes to those who give one hundred percent of the effort required, all the way to the finish line.

What does it take to finish strong? It takes commitment and a positive sense of purpose every step of the way. Many people start strong, with lots of enthusiasm. Yet their own complaints and doubts along the way drain them, so that there’s nothing left as they’re nearing the goal.

Winners finish strong because they value and appreciate the opportunity to make the effort. Winners finish strong because they carry a strong sense of positive purpose all the way to the finish line.

Start strong, stay strong, and finish strong by always remembering why you’re doing it in the first place.

— Ralph Marston
