Consistency will win out over all who stand before it.
Being relentlessly consistent in the pursuit of a goal is the best way to get there.
It’s tried and tested.
When you invest a large amount of effort over a long period of time is when the magic happens.
It’s not going to happen overnight.
“Overnight success stories,” by in large are a LIE.
Some people will think that is what happened though.
But you know it’s not
They didn’t see the consistency you put into over the years.
What they saw was only the final product.
This is when you have honed you’re craft so well that you become noticed to a large audience.
As the great Aristotle once said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
And it’s true even to this day.
In fact as technology and quick-fixes become increasingly sought after it is more relevant than ever.
Consistency can’t be beaten in the long run.
You may not be particularly skillful to begin with.
But give it enough time and you will be.
The different types of people when it comes to achieving desires
- There are those who will never start.
A mere pipe dream for those in this category. A ‘what if’ that will never materialise. They will be telling their friends how they would have done something if only it wasn’t for X,Y and Z. Not realising that these are movable obstacles. Or maybe they do realise it but they like to pretend they don’t
2)There are those who will begin chasing their dreams but then give up.
These people had the courage to try at least. For whatever reason they fell short of the mark. If they found another obsession then that’s great. But if they simply gave up without replacing it with anything else then that is a failure. Somewhere along the line they got discouraged. They didn’t have the self-belief to continue when the going got tough.
3) And there are those who will begin chasing and never stop.
These are the people who will come out on top when the dust settles. If you want it bad enough you will get there eventually. Whether it takes you 5, 10 or 20 years. It will all be worth it when you get to where you want to be. Consistency will win out over all else.
So many people want success but as they find out that it will take them much longer than expected they change their minds.
It immediately cuts out a vast proportion of the population.
‘Seeing the bigger picture’ is vital.
Unsuccessful people only think in the short term.
They don’t have enough insight to envisage where they want to be in the future.
If you do, you will understand the importance of consistency.
People may think you’re crazy because they don’t understand the mindset of a winner.
Consistency will win with investment
When you invest so much time and energy into something, there is no room for anything other than progress.
You leave yourself no other option but to win.
That’s why consistency will win and how it is such a great strategy.
All other competition will fall by the wayside.
And it will be the person who kept at it for long enough that will be be successful.
Continuing to learn and improve your trade, day after day is how you get there.
Increasing your productivity is also essential for growth, check out my post on it!
Never give up
If you stop then you will never know what could have been.
You will regret it.
Gary Vaynerchuk preaches consistent work with something you love.
I wholeheartedly agree with him.
When you are obsessed about something, it becomes so much easier to do it every day.
Quitting simply isn’t an option.
When you are on the move, great opportunities will come upon you.
They do not happen when you stop.
Don’t give up and people will be forced to pay attention to you.
Give them a reason to.
Consistency will win and so can you.
