Day 2 of the last week of my 20’s:
Over the next few days, I’m sharing things I’m glad I did in my 20’s & things I wish I did in my 20’s.
Things I wish I did in my 20’s (part 1): Finish.
It’s great to be a dreamer, but to make an impact, you got to be a finisher.
Throughout my 20’s, I’ve left a number of things unfinished: books read only part-way, house projects left uncompleted, pieces of social media content never published.
And there’s a number of skills & habits I started to develop but quit: speaking Spanish, playing piano, & plenty of others.
Granted, maybe some of these things weren’t worth continuing.
And there’s some things I’m glad I quit. (More on that in a future post).
However, a toxic trait of mine is starting something because it seems exciting in the moment.
Then when “life” gets in the way or I get bored: I quit.
Then I get motivated & interested in something else and the cycle repeats.
So my intention going into my 30’s: becoming a FINISHER through focus and discipline.
On my 30th birthday, I’m FINISH-ing prep for my first ever Bodybuilding competition with Coach @timjon88
And a shared goal with my Mom is to FINISH writing a rough draft for our book by Christmas.
What have you left unfinished?
Taking the path to freedom from an addiction?
A broken relationship that’s one difficult conversation from being mended?
A habit that can grow you into the person God’s calling you to be?
A dream you’re too scared to begin?
How’s about you join me on this quest: to become a finisher.
Remember: it’s not enough just get to the mountaintop. You got to make the climb back down as well.
