Deadlines excite me because I see them as long-awaited finish lines.  I am thrilled by the opportunity to accomplish my goals in victory.

Focusing on meeting my deadlines is a way to keep me motivated.  Because I like to finish everything I start, I feel energized by an approaching deadline.

Showing others that I can keep my word and meet my deadlines is empowering.  The pride I feel is indescribable knowing that people can trust me to get things done.  Being reliable is something I value in myself.

I picture myself in a well-planned race.  I know the path I am going to take and I am excited to run the course. Because I have prepared for my participation, I know I can reach the finish line victoriously.

As the finish line approaches, I surge forward.  This is how I live my life.  At the end of every finish line, a medal awaits me to reward me for my efforts.  Whether that medal is a kind word, a note of thanks, or a bigger prize, I am fulfilled and happy.

Once again, I have proven to myself that I am dependable and that I can take on anything I desire.  Sticking to well-structured goals and deadlines allows me to accomplish my tasks and reach greater heights.
