My wife and I were talking this week and she mentioned something to me that hit me and related so well to the topic of consistency that I have been thinking about this week.
Now I may not get her words down perfectly, but she said something to effect of “you have to keep trying, the moment you give up and stop trying is the moment let the other person win”
Her words are so true. Life is all about working and never giving up. We have to keep trying and keep striving for what we want and for who we want to be. Even when things get tough…we have to keep trying. When we make a mistake, or fall back into old ways…we have to keep trying. It is in these moments that we define who we are.
Thanks for the wise words babe.
going to keep it simple today and just share a quote on consistency…hope you enjoy it!
“Daily, consistent, focused, faithful expectation raises the miracle power of achieving your dreams.” -John Di Lemme
I started a new job a few weeks ago and have been focusing all of my efforts on getting situated and familiar with all the new products, features, and responsibilities. As I have done this…I have noticed that other areas of my life have been taking a back seat.
As I have focused on figuring out my new job, I have noticed that my positive attitude, focus, and positive outlook on life has been impacted. I am not saying that I have become a negative person, but I have noticed a difference in my overall positive attitude and the energy that I usually approach life.
As I was thinking about this today, I came across this quote that I feel lines up perfectly to what I am experiencing.
I have built my positive outlook by being persistent AND consistent. The name of my blog is Choose your PACE – which stands for Positive Attitude Changes Everything. If I am not consistently working on this…then I will lose this focus. Makes total sense!!!
The great thing about this quote and this principle in general is that if I want to increase my positive attitude and outlook, or change anything else in my life, I need to be persistent AND consistent at doing the things that will help me have this positive outlook and focus.
One of the first steps…Start posting again 🙂
What do you think? How does this quote apply to you?
