Consistency = Keeping your eye on YOUR goal

Another lesson I have learned this month is that to be consistent…you have to consistently keep your eye on YOUR goal – no matter what trials, distractions, discouragement, or frustrations try to get in your way.

A great example of this is what Michael Phelps did in the 2016 Summer Olympics. After being beaten in 2012 by Chad le Clos he came back and beat him in the same event in 2016.

The interesting thing for me in this story is that le Clos was beating everyone until the last 50 meters…but he took his eye of HIS goal and started looking at Phelps. le Clos lost his lead and ended up placing 4th.

Take a look at the picture below. How can you be like Michael Phelps in your life and use consistency to help you achieve your goals?

What are you doing with your time?

One thing I have learned this month as I have studied consistency is that we don’t know “how long” we will have to be consistent before we “see” the results.

The interesting thing about this is that the time is going to pass anyway…so why not be consistent while it is passing? This way you will have something valuable to show for the passage of your time.

Can you imagine what you could accomplish and what your life would like like if you were consistent for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year or more? A little everyday will eventually equal…success.

Keep being consistent…the success will come!!!

Take the steps each day

Sometimes we can take HUGE steps, other times all we can take are BABY steps…but the important thing is to keep taking steps, keep staying consistent.

What are your plans today to be consistent today?

Consistency

I have been impressed by the consistency and determination I have seen from the people I get to work with each day.

What is it that assists us in being consistent? Why is consistency such a key ingredient in success?

I am looking forward to studying these questions this month and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

What I have learned about consistency

I have come to realize that consistency really isn’t that hard…it is just that not being consistent is just a little bit easier. And being consistent, like everything else comes down to choice.
As I have consistently studied consistency this month it has opened my eyes to an entire different level of the power of our choices
How has consistency impacted your life? 

I don’t need to be consistent…do I?

I love the quote below. It is a great reminder that it takes consistent effort to reach our goals. Most of us can commit to short term intensity.

What would happen to your business and life if you can commit to long-term consistency?
