Greater Effort Equals Greater Results.

Encourager-In-Chief: September 16th, 2020

Finish strong.

Many of my new coaching clients express a concern when we’re about to begin. They fear that they will fail because they’ve tried in the past to succeed and have failed on their own. Coaching is all about accountability. My primary role is to hold people accountable to achieving their dreams. That means I have to be there when the going gets tough because that’s when most people start to give up and lose their drive.

Has this happened to you? If so, you’re not alone. The bigger the accomplishment, the bigger the level of commitment you’ll need. There will be times when you’ll face smooth sailing and gain encouragement. However, there may be more struggles and difficulties than you anticipated. Usually big projects take longer than you expect, cost more money than you have, and pick the absolute worst times to hand you a setback. In these times, remember that what you do in adversity will define who you are as a person — not only to yourself, but to everyone knows you or learns about you.


Remember it’s during our struggles and hardships when we grow the most. The greater the struggle, the sweeter the victory. I once heard a story about two men who went west in search of gold. They bought a treasure map and borrowed all the money they could to buy equipment to dig up the gold. When the challenge proved to be more costly and frustrating than they expected, they sold their map and went back east — discouraged and destitute.

The man who bought the map hired an engineer to check its accuracy. The gold vein turned out to be one of the largest ever found and ironically, the original men had stopped only a few feet away from striking it rich. In a world of starters, it’s important that you finish well. You will virtually be in a class by yourself and you’ll reap the rewards for your hard work.

Much effort is wasted for the lack of a little more.
