It’s always easier to quit than it is to finish a thing. Starting a thing is something that most people do, but finishing a thing is something only reserved for true leaders. Myles Monroe has a book out on the Spirit of Leadership and he talks about how the Spirit of Leadership is something that has to happen to you. It’s an awakening within your spirit that moves you to go beyond what most will never reach for or ever grasp. The Spirit of Leadership is the heart of a champion, a finisher, a conqueror.
When times get tough for a person with this attitude, they dig their heals down deeper into the ground and then give a even stronger plunge forward. Their attitude is usually relentless!
Like trying to pull a steak out of a bulldog’s mouth, that bulldog has already committed to that steak being his lunch. Now if you challenge that then you’re going to get hurt.
When you have the heart of a finisher, you’re put into a position where you’ve come to far to turn back and your to close to give up. You have to keep going because you want to get to what you originally saw in the beginning before you started your journey.
A lot of times we see things from a far of where we want to go but when we enter into the process, we get intimidated and/or overwhelmed with the challenges on the way. This is common. So what do people do in response to this? They quit.
The foolish thing about quitting is, you limit yourself from possessing the territory that you made up in your mind that you were going to claim. There is a saying that says, “Good things are worth fighting for.” If you loved something or somebody and it was taken from you and you had to fight to get it back, would you quit in the missed of the fight because it was to hard? I guess that would depend on how much you loved it right?
Well, I believe that we need to come to the realization that whatever it is that we love, we are going to have to fight for it and quitting is not an option. If you are alive and well, and you quit fighting for what you love most, then what are you living for?
What are you doing?
Think about the things that you’ve started that you’ve left incomplete, why didn’t you finish?
The excuses that you may come up with, don’t excuse the assignment that was given to you because of the desire of your own heart.
Make a decision to be a finisher today.
Phl 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
God is faithful, the question is, ARE YOU?
May the Lord be with you,
