The Law of Consistency

March 2, 2020

The Law of Consistency states that motivation gets you going, but discipline keeps you growing! So, what’s the difference between the two?

…Glad you asked! 😉

Talented people might believe they don’t need to work as hard because they already have the natural skills to succeed.

Consistent people know that success comes from doing the small, trivial, and seemingly “unimportant” tasks every single day, even when nobody’s watching. 

Talented people assume they will always do well at whatever they put their mind to because that tactic has always worked for them.

Consistent people know they will do well at whatever they put their mind to because they will put in the effort day in and day out to make it happen. 

Talented people drop what they’re doing and move onto something else when things don’t go their way the first time.

Consistent people know that things will never go their way the first time. They’ll identify what’s wrong and figure out another approach to try. 

Talented people are scared to fail because failure means admitting they are not skilled in a particular area.

Consistent people love failure, because they know every failure is one step closer to reaching their goals. 

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle

Which one do you want to be, a talented person or a consistent person?
