How to Run a Straight Race

Are you a transformer or a fence sitter? It is easy to talk about the things rather than putting into action.Every task required perseverance to see its end. You may succeed or fail in your pursuit task. But the point is you do it.As it is said, Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it’s very important that you do it. Because nobody else will. The joy does not lie in the result, rather than the enjoyment of performing the task itself.
It is an inspiring speech from the movie Chariots of Fire by Eric Liddell,

You came to see a race today. See someone win. Happened to be me. But I want you to do more than just watch a race. I want you to take part in it.I want to compare faith to running in a race. It’s hard. It requires concentration of will, energy of soul. You experience elation when the winner breaks the tape — ‘specially if you’ve got a bet on it. But how long does that last? You go home. Maybe your dinner’s burnt. Maybe, maybe you haven’t got a job. So who am I to say, “believe,” “have faith,” in the face of life’s realities?I would like to give you something more permanent, but I can only point the way. I have no formula for winning the race. Everyone runs in her own way, or his own way.And where does the power come from to see the race to its end? From within.
