When my thoughts beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again. I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another. Never will I allow any day to end with a failure…I will persist until I succeed. [The Greatest Secret in the World]
If you could create one habit this new year, what would it be?
How powerful would it be if you created the habit of ending your day with a victory?
How many pages would you write this year?
How many sales would you close?
How much weight would you lose?
Whether in business, family, spiritual, or creative life, ending the day in victory has great power.
Forgot to write today? Finish one sentence before you go to sleep.
Was your day unusually busy and you missed your workout? Do a 3 minute workout of the day before you head to bed.
Were you unable to close a sale? Send off one more email or make one more call before you call it a day.
It’s as simple as that:
Don’t end the day in failure. End in victory.
Don’t go to sleep until you have succeeded in completing the thing you promised yourself you would finish.
Keep your promises: especially the ones made to yourself.
And if you think one sentence, a simple 3 minute workout, or a single call won’t make a difference – it does.
Remember, it’s the small, tiny actions we take every day that create our empires.
Nothing is trivial when it comes to creating your life’s work – the greatest novel is composed of thousands of single words; the greatest athlete is the product of individual repetitions; the greatest salesman is nothing more than the accumulation of thousands of calls.
Never end the day with failure.
End the day in victory.
Persist until you succeed.
Never fight alone: Join the Resistance.
