Food For Thought: It’s Not How We Start, It’s How We Finish

Food For Thought: It’s Not How We Start, It’s How We Finish

“There are better starters than me, but I am a strong finisher.” – Usain Bolt (image of Usain Bolt doing his iconic pose.)

Food For Thought: It’s not how we start, it’s how we finish…

💡 In the 100m sprint, Usain Bolt was never the first man off the blocks…yet he won the 100m track event in record time❗️

Similarly, as entrepreneurs, we may feel at some point, we are at a standstill in life and elements of self-doubt, fear and imposter syndrome start to kick.

I clearly remember the day I had to transition back from entrepreneurship to corporate (before returning to it) and said to myself “all my friends are years ahead of me in wealth and experience”…little to realise a bigger picture was waiting to unfold ahead of me.

HOW and WHY❓

✅ Our past cannot be changed. The lessons we learn from there are what makes us invaluable as we build a foundation of future success…

✅ Our future is determined through our conscious choices, focus and efforts … which ultimately lies within our control. Remember, where focus goes, energy flows – so keeping the end finishing line in mind, is important

✅ Each one of us is gifted a story to tell and the length of our chapters are different (whether in business or life). So comparing ourselves to peers is good to create a competitive edge and drive results BUT not good if we allow despair to take over us.

✅ Lastly, many successful individuals start off with “nothing”, and today have revolutionised the lives of others, let alone themselves. Go check the history of Tony Robbins, Vishen Lakhiani, Robin Sharma, Grant Cardone…

💎 One does not need to start off as a legend, to become a legend ❗️ 💎

💡 Relationships become better when we tear down the walls that divide us and build bridges that bring us together ~ John C Maxwell

Every time we cross a bridge, remember it took effort to build it, and it takes effort to maintain it. That is also true with relationships, whether its social media connections or physical people we meet – these are all bridges to initiating long term sustainable relationships.

Over the years, I have learnt that our focus should be on four life domains:

✅ You -> Personal Relationships -> Business Relationships -> Relationship with Humanity and Society

✅ Taking care of oneself is at the core of the three domains because the other three is dependent depend on our health and wellness. If we do not take care of ourselves, our relationships will suffer.

✅ Likewise, our work isn’t at its best when we haven’t given ourselves the time we need to stay physically and psychologically healthy.

✅ Last but not least, it is fair to say that many #successful #businessowners, some of whom may have come from financially insecure upbringings, always redistribute their new-found wealth (whether its time, money, knowledge) to charities and local community ventures.
