Twenty-six years ago, President Thomas S. Monson asked a question.
“Shall I falter, or shall I finish? On the answer await the blessings of joy and happiness here in mortality and eternal life in the world to come.”
The question is found in the July 1986 Ensign. President Monson wrote an article called “Finishers Wanted.” During the Sunday morning session of General Conference, President Monson showed us he is a finisher.
In the talk, President Monson describes six marks of true finishers.
1. “The Mark of Vision. It has been said that the door of history turns on small hinges, and so do people’s lives. We are constantly making small decisions. The outcome determines the success or failure of our lives. That is why it is worthwhile to look ahead, to set a course, and at least be partly ready when the moment of decision comes. True finishers have the capacity to visualize their objective.”
