I’ve been known to watch a little football every now and then, and it’s interesting how two teams can play for 58 minutes, but in the end, the game is decided by which team is best in the final two minutes. It’s the team that can suck it up when they are beaten up and tired that end up being the winners.
Just like football, it’s the final two minutes that determine the winners and the losers at almost everything in life. Everything we do up until that last two minutes just keeps us in the game and gives us a chance to win at the end.
Well…we are in the final two minutes of 2018’s Q1. The winner will be determined by what we do between now and the end of the year. I know everyone is tired and everyone needs a break… Me too, but it’s those few who can dig deep, remain disciplined, and push through the pain that will finish up Q1 the winners.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for spending time over the holidays with friends and family. I’m all for having some fun. I just see too many people take their foot off the gas and coast into the end of the quarter, then when Q2 hits, they are at a dead stop. Then it’s really not until the end of June before they are back into “game shape.”
As I said, I am all for taking some time off over Spring Break and enjoy the 2 minute warning. Just don’t take off the entire last 2 minutes of the game… Finish it strong!
This applies to everything in life…all aspects of our F5. Faith, Family, Friends, Fitness, and Finance!!!!!
Here is the best part… If you are one of the few who choose to dig deep and finish the game strong, there will be a lot less competition because everyone else will be sleeping… Everyone else will be taking the final two minutes off and because there are a lot less people in the game in the final two minutes of the quarter, it makes it a lot easier to score.
Have a powerful month and finish Q1 STRONG!!!!!!!
