I am still struggling a bit today and so I guess that is why this story caught my eye, in my reading. I know life is hard and there will be days that seem much BIGGER THAN ME, but I also realize, that it is important for me to be a finisher. To keep trying, to keep the faith and to keep trying (even when I feel I can't do any more). So tonight ...instead of telling you all my aches, pains and worries, I will share this beautiful story, that is full of wisdom with you. I hope you enjoy it! Good night dear friends, and thanks for always encouraging me to be a FINISHER!
"One Wednesday I paused before the elegant show window of a prestigious furniture store. That which caught and held my attention was not the beautifully designed sofa nor the comfortable-appearing chair that stood by its side. Neither was it the beautiful chandelier positioned overhead. Rather, my eyes rested upon the small sign that had been placed at the bottom right-hand corner of the window. Its message was brief: 'Finishers Wanted.'
The store had need of those persons who possessed the talent and the skill to make ready for final sale the expensive furniture that the firm manufactured and sold. 'Finishers Wanted.' The words remained with me as I returned to the pressing activities of the day.
"In life, as in business, there has always been a need for those persons who could be called finishers. Their ranks are few, their opportunities many, their contributions great.
