Being a pitcher in baseball may be the only thing in life where there is a bullpen to finish off the game for you. With everything else, in order to be successful, you need to not only be good at the start and solid in the middle, but you need to be able to finish strong. In my job, I am always looking for ways to motivate and inspire people to improve and do better. But the most amazing thing to me is how many people can get fired up about starting something that will make them better. They are raring to jump in and participate, but once the novelty wears off, they end up vanishing into thin air. Not only do they not finish the game, but they can’t even get out of the first inning.
I have discovered it is really only those who have the discipline and commitment to stick it out once the novelty has worn off – those that keep up the hard work and discipline when no one is looking, that will be truly successful. It is exactly why we see so many people hitting the gym and eating right on January 1st, when it is “the thing to do”. But then by Feb 1st 99% of people are right back to their same old bad habits. They are great starters – but horrible finishers.
I don’t care whether it is sports, family, faith, business, health, or whatever – if you really want to be successful at something you need to be accountable and disciplined in doing the activities it takes in the beginning, in the middle and in the end.
Remember there is no bullpen in life. If you want to win at anything you need to “be in the game” from start to finish.
