The Importance of Finishing What You Started

One of the most important things we need to do is see things through to the end.

Life can be hard. Full of responsibilities. We are constantly faced with a never-ending list of things to do, more often than not our days feel like a juggling act, trying to get everything done.

Yet this is no reason for you to not complete those things that are important to you. So often I see people stopping before they get to the end of something. They put in so much time, effort, they work so hard. They’re so committed, they believe in what they’re doing, but before they’ve reached the conclusion they suddenly just give up. To me this is criminal.

There can be nothing more satisfying than to complete something we’ve worked so hard for. It may be building a business, it could be going through 3 years of university or perhaps it’s writing a book.

Do you finish what you start? Do you have the inner strength to see through those things you start doing?

Everyone when they set out doing something new begin filled with enthusiasm, excitement, energy and belief. But can you maintain it? Of course you have the best intentions, but is that enough? Life does seem to have a habit of getting in our way. We start with enthusiasm, and lots of energy to keep going but as time goes by our zest starts to wane and it becomes harder to keep moving forward.

But to me once you start something you’ve got to stick with it no matter what. You’ve got to finish what you start. Success in what ever it is you do is very much down to self-discipline and perseverance. But there is one element that to me is absolutely key, and that is …..

Our inner thought process is what is behind our successes and failures, it is responsible for us completing a mission that we set out on or giving up. It’s when we start to think: this is so difficult; I can’t do it. Or I hate this; it’s not fun anymore.

Well cut the crap. No longer allow your negative self talk to stop you in your track and prevent you from finishing what you started. When paralyzed with doubt, remind yourself that you have gone that far in the project and you can complete it if you stick with it.

Trust in your abilities and believe you can get things done. Keep taking action, you’ll get it done eventually.
