Why have I not accomplished my goals and why have you not accomplished yours? Sure I have achieved some of them, but what about the goals where we have moved the goalposts (or in simpler terms we found a good excuse, justifying why the goal was not that important and why it could be moved to later or never) what about them? Why did we set the goal, why was it so important then and why did we really want to accomplish the goal?
The answer is fairly simple and the question we should ask ourselves is ‘why were we not consistent?’ Yes the answer to the question is consistency and then how can you become consistent, remain consistent and have the discipline to stay consistent? Don’t confuse consistency with boring routine, in most instances it’s more about being creative so that you will consistently see results and allow you to adjust and improve your current strategy.
If you thinking that consistency could be boring. Yes it could be, but the challenge is firstly to be consistent and then to find the creativity in your consistency. In fact creativity will normally only happen when you are being consistent.
So there is a challenge for all of us, if we wonder how we are going to achieve our goals … Just ask yourself, how consistent are you going to be? If you can answer that question truthfully then your success is fairly predictable. If you think it is not predictable then you have actually just found another excuse.
Have a great day and achieve great things.
The success that consistency brings is predictable!
If you think differently, you have actually just found an excuse not to be successful.
