Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - You get credit for what you finish, not what you start.

SparkPeople's Comments

Some say the hardest part is getting started. If this is true though, why do we hear stories of people who give up on their diet, stop writing a novel or quit a difficult task at work. Maybe it’s not the start but the finish that’s so difficult. This is important to know when you are chasing after a dream or goal. Many of us expect smooth sailing once we start something. However, we find out quickly there are always bumps in the road. The important thing is to embrace these bumps, not run away from them. Remind yourself that if it were easy, everyone would do it. Then, when you reach the finish line, you will have much more appreciation for what you just accomplished. The goal should always be to finish, not start. So keep at your goals, and be prepared for the bumps along the way.

You should never give up or stop, until you reach the goal, doesn't matter how big or small, you do for you, that is all is matter.

How true this is!! I had never heard this before, but it really caught my attention! I've been thinking about it and it has renewed my attitude and spirit today. I, too, will print it out, so that I can be reminded of it every day.
