The last mile is undoubtedly the hardest part of a marathon. Body is tired, and yet one more mile to go. The last mile. Never mind accumulated fatigue, enduring pain, or self doubt. The last mile is a test of will on how to cross that finishing line.
The last mile also applies to life’s events: whether school, relationship, work, and other endeavors. The same test gets repeated over and over. Its importance can not be overstated. It is what separates winner from loser, success from failure.
So what makes or breaks us in that last mile? Is it strength, stamina, faith or something else? Whatever it is. Whatever comes into play will get put on the line. It is so close and yet so far away – that is what the last mile represents.
Are you ready for it?
