Happy Friday! Last Saturday after completing my first race (not first but not last) someone offered me these words of encouragement:
To finish first, first you have to finish.
We’re all striving to achieve goals in our professional or personal lives, and it’s a good reminder that there’s no shortcut to success.
To achieve anything we have to be willing to do the work, turn the laps, improve our technique, dust ourselves off and keep going no matter how appealing it is to quit. You might not love the first finish, or even the tenth, but keep trying and no matter how lofty your goal, you can achieve it!
Whatever your goal, keep striving – and have a sunny day!
P.S. “Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.” Pat Riley
