Be First, And Be Last

A person sitting on a rock

Be first and last…

A kitchen with a sink and a toaster oven

Be first to attack, and last to counter.

Be first to wake, and the last to sleep.

Be first to meet challenges, and the last to hide from them.

Be first to learn from your mistakes, and the last to give an excuse.

Be first to claim victory, and the last to settle for defeat.

Be first to sweat, sacrifice, and suffer for your goals and dreams, and you will be the last one standing at the top of the mountain called “achievement.”
