The one secret that successful people have and always talk about is consistency. Consistency has been one of the reasons why they are successful and reached their goals.
So, what is consistency and how can consistency play apart in your success and building your success?
As per Consistency in Action; “Consistency is about building small empowering habits and rituals that you partake in every single day that keep you focused on your highest priorities and goals”.
Consistency makes you accountable
Once you have decided to become consistent you are immediately holding yourself accountable to make sure you are working towards making that goal a reality. You are taking a consistent and disciplined approach to your life.
After all, you can’t be successful if you only do the things that need to be done when you feel like.
You build a reputation with consistency
If you are a blogger, business owner or entrepreneur, consistency creates a reputation. Your audience and clients want to hear from you and they want to know when they will hear from you.
You cannot expect to build your business, blog or audience if you aren’t being consistent and creating a reputation for yourself and your brand.
- If you have a blog and you promise to post every Monday, then post every Monday. No excuses!
- If you are working on a business plan, practice it repeatedly until you get it right. No excuses!
- If you want to get a head start on the day, then wake up an hour earlier every day and get a head start on the day. No excuses.
Be consistent. Take control of your life, your time and focus on where you want to be and go.
You cannot reach your goals unless you are consistent in your efforts to make it a reality.
Consistency helps you figure out what works and what doesn’t work
When you take the time to be consistent, you are giving yourself time to figure out what works and what doesn’t work. How are you meant to measure what works if you give up being consistent after 2 or 3 days? When you give yourself this time by being consistent you immediately have the upper hand to change things to make reaching your goals a little easier.
So, what are you going to do now?
So right now, you have a goal you are currently working towards, but for some reason you can seem to move further than where you are now? Have you asked yourself if you are being consistent in your efforts to help bring you closer to this goal daily.
Have you changed a few things to allow yourself more time to work on this goal to make it a reality? This is where consistency comes in.
Stop making excuses.
Sit down one evening or one morning and create a routine for yourself that will give you more time to work towards your goal and be consistent with it.
Take a consistent and disciplined approach to your life and you will thank yourself later for it.
