As you all know I am a great football fanatic, Arsenal supporter if I must say 😅 (Kindly don’t give up on the FOURTH line of this piece 🙏🏽)
Every football fan watches a match with the expectation and desire that the team they support emerges victorious. Of course, at the beginning, everyone might be calm but anxiety builds up as the 90 minutes start elapsing. This is because everyone has hopes that his star player will do the impossible and secure a win. The same happens when you are cheering on that athlete on the track and want him/her to win that gold medal.
Better off, ask anyone who is involved in betting and find out how important every minute is for them. Every single minute including the very last one.
We are in the second last month of the year! We all know of good things that come during the eleventh hour. Put yourself in the shoes of the star player who you depend on to win the game. YOU are the star player in your game of life. With God, your family, friends and all those who look up to you as your fans, and YOU! Because you are your biggest fan. You wouldn’t want to disappoint any of them, would you? They have all invested in you in terms of resources; opportunities, strength, support and even time to watch you succeed. Would you really want to let them down?
Reflect back on all the plans you had made for the year. Evaluate what you have achieved and what is pending. Put what is left in God’s hands, remember He is one of your fans. Quickly set up your plan to achieve them. Start tackling them one by one without giving up or wearing out. You have the resources, you have the gift of time and above all you have yourself.
Remember when your star player scored the winning goal at the last minute or when that athlete passed his/her opponents just a few metres from the finish line? Remember the amount of celebration that happened afterwards? May that be your amount of celebration on 31st December, and not just because you are crossing over to another year, but also because you have fought the fight and successfully finished the race, ready for new challenges that 2018 will bring.
Now share this encouragement with someone today and don’t waste any time – START WORKING.
