Knowing how to do something and actually doing it are two entirely separate subjects. Just as starting a venture is one thing but following through is a whole different animal.
Want to separate yourself from the pack? Finish!
Simply put, A lot of people start a lot of stuff, but a lot of people never finish! They don't complete. If there was a graveyard for great ideas it would most certainly be full to capacity. I know this sounds simple, but becoming a finisher will separate you from the rest. Being able to stand firm in your convictions will make you stand out. There's an old saying that goes "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Good intentions are awesome and everything, but you have to actually execute them to benefit. The person who thought well but never did anything rarely goes down in history. Nobody cares about the guy with the good idea, we care about the guy who manifested it! We've all heard the age old adage "Knowledge is power" but knowledge isn't worth a plug nickel if you're not willing to apply it. You have to be willing to finish!
If we ever want to win at anything big, we need action and staying power. Action is great, but we must repeat goal-oriented action until we get the results we desire. We have to be willing to be persistent. If great success was easy, everybody would be amazingly successful. Some have quick success here and there, but those that enjoy quick success in a long-term fashion are few an far between.
What does this mean for us? It means we have to keep on keeping on. We have to follow through. If we don't follow through all the hard work...all the heartbreak...all the effort....are all for absolutely NOTHING..
What you gonna do when it gets uncomfortable? What you gonna do when your team looks to you? Are you going to let the naysayers win? Or are you going to follow through and get the job done?
The greatest man that ever walked the planet literally had the weight of the world on his back, and finished. Imagine if he thought his duty was too much. Imagine if he gave up. Imagine if he stopped because he was tired. Imagine if he wanted to take a break. Thank God he didn't. He accomplished what he set out for and said "It is finished."
He finished, and so can you.
Remember, All hard work brings a profit.
Your's in the fight,
