Ability to finish

share on:

Success is when preparation meets opportunity.

Success is not about the money (that I don’t have)
It’s not about the diamond ring I want to buy her
It’s not about me just trying

It’s all about me wanting to finish a race that I started
It’s about knowing when to rest and knowing when to start again
It’s about learning how to stand up, right after you’ve fallen down
It’s about staying focused till the trumpet sounds

Let’s see: Abraham Lincoln was twice an unsuccessful candidate for election to the U.S. Senate, but that didn’t stop him, did it? He still went on to win the Republican Party nomination in 1860 and was elected president later that year. And then His story goes on…

Even Jesus Christ had a choice, He could have given up and it still won’t have changed the fact the He was/is the son of God. The only difference is that there might have been another saviour (but let’s not digress) .


The fact about being successful is that even when you are given a crown made of thorns or being lashed with difficult times, the last thing you want to do is take your eyes of the goal.

You can ask Usain Bolt (a.k.a Lightning Boltz, a.k.a flash, a.k.a fastest man in the world), he’d tell you that the road to success was not a fast one.

Remember, Motivation is what starts us up but its habit that keeps us going. Whatever happens don’t stop moving, because the longer you walk the closer you get to your destination…..
