  5. Emeasoba George:

    The END of anything or any human counts more than the beginning. Yes of course, it is only he or she that endures to the end or rather holds firm to his or her faith that will be saved at last. Moreover, it is the end of a vision, aspiration or dream that proves whether it is ordinary or extraordinary, true or false. Also, it is he or she that perseveres or persists to the end that can and will leap or reap the reward for hard work (genuine success). Likewise, it is he or she that eventually reaches or crosses the finish line that emerges a winner in a race. Besides that, it is your last thoughts, words and actions that will determine your salvation or damnation on the day of reckoning. As a matter of fact, it is better for you to begin badly in anything and afterwards end up well. Than for you to begin well and afterwards end up badly. For, that will entail nothing else but only a tragedy. Nevertheless, all of the above evidently signifies that the END of anything or any human truly counts more than the beginning. Therefore, I urge you to be more concerned with what your end would be rather than your beginning. Because surely, the END is ever the BOTTOM LINE QED. ~Emeasoba George
