Awesome you’ve got a reason to start. Something worth it had been initiated! The question is, how do you maintain it to finish strong?
Contest starts with the interested whole, along the stages to the top, not all starters are fit to the next. There are drop-outs and a few get to the semi-finals but just one emerges the winner, that’s amazing. Likened to a hundred meter race (just as any other sports) is a fit example to the subject, all athletes involved would be on the same starting line until they hear “go”. Prior to the race, each athlete aims for the best. Unfortunately, they get positioned at the end of the race.
Recalling from experiences, “not all starters finish the race” as the reason behind each individual’s failure differs. Few get disqualified for disobeying track rules, mechanical injury sustained from any of the kits while in motion, anatomical injury (ankle dislocation, torn hamstring) is another reason, loss of esteem by an individual right on the track and giving up the race holds a factor. Have you ever wondered that among all these factors there is still a first person to get to the “finish line”?
Emphasis is not on the first to reach the finish line anyways, the point is reaching the finish line no matter what the track challenges could be, no matter the position you earn or the time taken to get there, co-athletes and spectators would always await your arrival, starter and finisher.
Champion of a race or contest is likely to be faced with any of the parameters just as other colleagues but does things possible not to give in to them; He avoids distractions and focuses on the finish line. Taking a decision as such calls for you to “starve your distractions but feed your focus”. Have you started a program or course of study, an innovative project of great value? Journey to fulfillment of your dreams? Name it! Does it seem tiring and results are not showing forth? Regardless of the stage you’ve got to but seems there’s no progress (either a fresher, sophomore, in the penultimate year of your pursuit or a finalist)? You might have started a creative model of great values, business concept or innovation but you feel like quitting or giving up. Thoughts of quit set in when you cannot get things right in studies, when you cannot get enough funds for that project, strategies to business plans failed, confusion on the concept or innovation you have embarked on, why not keep moving? Why not gaze at the finish line? Why not be optimistic? Most winners once faced their fears. You’ve had the cause to start, why not end the challenge!
You are almost there, life has never promised to be fair to anyone. Your objectives of starting need your self-esteem to sustain you towards fulfillment. When you think of giving up, all you need do is remember why you started. You’ve gone too far dear just for you to give up now. You can do it, bring out the best from it and finish well. The world awaits you to celebrate the glory not the story. Never ever give up. Day unto day you are no farther, be of great mind. You have started well, finish well.
