Bill Courtney said, “In the marathon of life, there is no finish line.” Rather, it is a magnificent and joyous journey of continuing growth and learning as great leaders achieve their life’s purpose and meaning. An old Nike poster captures the great leaders’ (the ‘serious runner’ below) passion of excitement in the life-changing special moment they experience as they joyously run their life’s marathon.
“Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is unknown to most people.
Some call it euphoria. Others say it’s a new link of mystical experience that propels you into an elevated state of consciousness.
A flash of joy. A sense of floating. As you run, when it happens, you break through a barrier that separates you from the casual runners. Forever.
And from that point on, there is no finish line.
You run for your life. You begin to be addicted to what running gives you….
Beating the competition is relatively easy. But beating yourself is a never-ending commitment.”
Chuck Norris wrote, “There is no finish line. When you reach one goal, find a new one.” May you fill yourself with the joy and excitement of the challenges and opportunities you anxiously choose to pursue to make your life’s marathon the greatest beyond your wildest dreams. Remember always that “beating yourself is a never-ending commitment.” May you have a magnificent run every day of your beautiful life.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
