It’s Not How You Start, It’s How You Finish

 

Funny how life sometimes inspires those of us brave enough to keep our heads up. I mean, consider:

  • Yes, we’re in an economic crisis. Yes, we’re going into an uncertain future, with a debt measured in trillions of dollars.
  • Yes, we face a threat of terrorist attacks from within since our Government doesn’t seem to be willing to secure our borders not just from illegal Mexican and drug cartel invasions, but also from who-knows-how-many Muslim extremists disguise as our neighbors from the south?
  • Yes, we’re facing possibly the biggest recession or even depression with a novice President trying out his ideas on how to “Spend our way back to prosperity.”
  • Yes, we’re struggling to find our way in a world that seems to be working against itself. 

Enough doom and gloom, already!  It’s enough to make you want to roll up in a ball and just say, “OK, I quit!” But we don’t, because that’s not what made this country the envy of the world.

The wise person understands that it is in struggle that we find inspiration. It sometimes takes desperation to find hope. And, so often in loss, we see the potential for gain.

We find inspiration all around us. We see the potential that comes with stuggle and effort. Struggle and effort, not just to regain control of our country, our economy, and our careers, but control of our lives, our families, and our very souls.

My gift today for you, in hopes you will enter this week-end with hope and vision, is this amazing message:

“It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.”

After watching the video below, ask yourselves… “How am I going to finish? How are we, as a country going to finish? Do we give up? Or do we finish strong?”

I’ve got my answer. Watch the video and get yours.
