September 20th, 2012 is approaching. This date is an important day as it begins the final 100 day countdown of the year. 265 days are now gone, and the only ones that matter now are these final 100 days.
With that in mind, I wanted to share with you a great story about what it takes to finish the year strong.
The Story Begins …
The Tour de France is one of the toughest most grueling races in the world.
One hundred and thirty-eight racers take 21 days to cover over 2000 miles.
In 1989 US cyclist Greg LeMond was 50 seconds behind the leader, who just so happened to be a two-time Tour de France winner,) going into the final leg on the final day.
It was considered an insurmountable lead to everyone. Well that is to everyone except Greg and his team.
It would have been easy for Greg to give up, go through the motions and settle for second place.
The time difference was considered impossible to overcome.
And, to make it more dramatic, he still had 38 shotgun pellets in his body, including some in the lining of his heart from a hunting accident suffered two years earlier.
Instead, Greg LeMond, just like you and me, believes in the power of a strong finish and had a plan to win.
Greg not only overcame the 50 second difference, he went on to win that day with an 8 second lead.
While Greg danced in victory on the Champs-Elysees, his defeated competitor who took victory for granted and kept doing what he always did that day sat and wept.
If you believe in the importance of a strong finish, and leveraging these last 100 days and finish the year strong, then check out this very special extreme performance program:
