Crossing the Finish Line

Second Lieutenant Alonzo Babers (No. 882), US Air Force, crosses the finish line first to win the gold medal in the 400 meter race at the 1984 Summer Olympics.

Sometimes, when people quit in the pursuit of a goal, they blame their spouse, kids, boss, neighbors, everyone but themselves.

…The fact is over 90% of people quit while in pursuit of a goal or never even get around to setting goals.

Meanwhile, the friends and family that you invited to the race, who are waiting to cheer when you cross the finish line, are left sitting there like… dafuq?

I can hear your uncle now.

“I spent my hard-earned gas money to come out here…”

The fact of the matter is you need to learn to discipline your distraction.

Sure, you might be hungry, but FOCUS!

You can eat a celebratory feast once you finish the race.

Uncle Ray Ray will be there and all to press a crisp $20 in your hand once you get there.

In all seriousness, you owe it to yourself to do what you set out to do as well as your children, your parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends.

…Hell, STRANGERS, To do that thing which you were put here to do!

Don’t you think you should get to doing it?

Find your dream.

Then, get to…
