“The riders in a race do not stop short when they reach the goal.

When one goal is achieved it’s the stepping stone to the next
When your closing in on your goal stay focused on the outcome . . . . and reach out to grasp the goal at hand . . . . and keep pushing forward to your next goal.
When a goal is achieved it’s not the time to stop . . . . it’s becomes an opportunity to stretch yourself . . . . and grasp the next opportunity.
When you achieve your goal the race is not over it’s . . . . it’s a stepping stone to your next goal.
You achieve greater levels of success by using each goal you achieve . . . . as a stepping stone to your next goal . . . . and to greater levels of achievement and success.
When one goal is achieved it’s the stepping stone . . . . to the next goal.
