Consistency


Repetition may seem boring and sometimes unnecessary but it is just the opposite. The act of doing things over and over again is what makes us better. Whether we are practicing for sports or working on an event or even earning the trust of someone, that continued action is what gets the break through. When we look at a sports figure, what makes them better? It's the continuous practice of the same thing over and over again. To shoot better 3 pointers, you don't shoot until you make 2 or 3 in a row, anyone can do that at some point. That does not make you better. You have to be consistent with your practicing. You have to shoot hundreds of shots until it feels natural to you. And even then you don't stop, you keep doing it so you don't loose that feeling and improve on what you already have.


It is not just sports it is also with other things like hosting an annual event. Annual events means that you plan on doing this every year. That doesn't mean do it this year, skip next year because you didn't get the turn out you expected. It means that in spite of the turn out you still do it. If you are consistent people take notice and begin to take interest. Anything done consistently will take some work. Don't give up. You may not see the results right away but you will.


One of the most important areas of being consistent is in the area of relationships. Your consistency, whether positive behavior or negative behavior, will establish that relationship. If you say you are going to be some where or do something and you do and you do it consistently, then that establishes your reputation. On the flip side, if you say that you are going to do something and you don't and you consistently let people down, then that also establishes your reputation. What you do and how often you do it will develop who you are and what people think about you. Better yet, it is not what they think, it is what they know based on past, consistent behavior. You have to make sure that you are showing people who you really are. "If someone shows you who they are, believe them". That comes with being around them and see how they behave constantly. Not just special events or occasions, but on a normal day. Your kids are the best example of consistency. They know and they react to what you say based on how you've been in the past. Telling them you will be there at their event and you have a reputation of not being there for anything, they don't take you serious. They may not say it but their reaction and body language tells it all the time.


I want you to take a moment or two to look at your life and see what have you been consistent at? Being there for my loved ones, spending time with my spouse and kids, going to the gym, eating right/wrong, reading, spending money, lying, mistreating people... remember what you do consistently is what makes up your character. Change what needs to be changed to become the person you believe you are in your head. And if you are not sure, take the risk and ask somebody...
