Question special

We all know how important the personal statement is to our application. It's the one place where our personalities can come across to the reader.
We invest all of time and focus to write it, but it seems we always seem to struggle with a strong conclusion. How do we avoid a generic conclusion where we are thanking the reader or asking to be considered for the position?
Any advice? Any big no no's you don't like to read in that final paragraph? Any insights would be much appreciated.
