CONSISTENCY! HOW IMPORTANT IS THIS ON YOUR LIFE JOURNEY?
Just remember that consistency in action, is the hidden driver for success, in all aspects of the word. Another word for consistency is to be FIRM, meaning that you know where you are, where you are going and how you are going to get there, you are focused on your set rules. A lack of consistency, leaves, those that surround you, feeling confused, frustrated, lost and irritable.
Consistency develops routines, builds momentum, building habits that become second nature lifestyles. It’s a gift that we all possess, but most of us don’t seem interested in exploring it, in turn just ignoring it totally. For us to achieve that long term greatness, that we all know about, want, but don’t seem to get anywhere near it, this skill is necessary. You shall achieve almost anything and everything, whether it’s to do with your body (health, physic), business, relationships, emotional health or spirituality. Once you’ve set your specific, realistic, achievable goals, you now start by implementing a schedule, reminding yourself continuously about it, making promises, only if you can meet them, rewarding yourself, when you’ve completed something, taking time to recharge, motivating yourself, even if you don’t feel like doing it, making yourself accountable, you can err, allow time to see changes, don’t be impatient, set boundaries for your commitment and personal relationships, build your will power and most importantly eliminate negativity.
On your journey tick off your tasks, on your schedule, as you progress, when completing them. You have to concentrate and be consistent on your journey. Seldom is it easy, because we tend to focus more on the outcome, rather than the process. We seem to always be more drawn to the positive feelings of the outcome, rather than the struggle of the journey, forcing us to quit during the struggle, before we can experience the rewards of staying on course. While you are going, don’t forget to recognize, when not reaching those set standards and goals that you’ve set, otherwise, you are destined for disaster.
With consistency as one of your main tools, you eventually build yourself a most powerful trait, by, for instance, your documenting of your key practices and procedures, being mindful, valuing regular training, soliciting feedback, being disciplined and not easily distracted, not being discriminatory, committed to core values, focusing on quality, not just quantity, not being a boaster and finally keeping to your word continuously.
