Most of us are consistent about habits in our lives, like brushing our teeth or getting dressed on a morning (I hope!!) … but when we desire to see results of change in our world oftentimes we fall short because we simply failed to stick with it. What if the difference between where you are and where you want to be is largely down to one thing that you have complete control over …being CONSISTENT?
I would go as far to say that the difference in your life this year could be down to how CONSISTENT you can be.
It sounds simple, but how consistent are we with our exercise, diet, things we’ve said ‘yes’ to at work, making time for personal growth – all those things we’re told we should be doing? Our aspirations cannot be fulfilled unless we are deliberate in disciplining ourselves till those aspirations become habit. That means even when there’s no one there to motivate or inspire.
Discipline is that inner ‘do it’ when we could choose ‘not to’, yet we choose ‘to’ because of a predetermined lifestyle choice. Every time we choose ‘to’ we are forming a habit. Eventually, these things become part of who we are and what we do.
Be consistently consistent!
How can we become more consistent?
Would love to know what tips you have for staying consistent… how do you stick with it?
