Well it’s time to dust off the old blog and learn a quick lesson about the Power of Inconsistency.
Inconsistency is the something that we all deal with. Whether hitting the gym hard for 3 weeks before getting “busy at work” (Guilty), not finishing the last 2 chapters of a book for 6 months because we were “busy” (Guilty), or going MIA for 12 months on a blog due to “time limitations” (Guilty). Regardless of the excuse, we have all been guilty of being inconsistent in our lives at some point.
The problem with inconsistency is that it kills our momentum in the pursuit of goals. It pains me to think of all the things I could have done, or where I could be now, if only I had been more consistent in my pursuits. ‘Where would I be now’ is the BIG QUESTION that reveals the real impact of this reality.
The Big Question
Just ask yourself: “Where would I be now if I had only kept _______________…?”
Whether the answer is practicing the guitar, learning a language, or working towards a B.A., it becomes blatantly obvious the impact that inconsistency has had on our lives.
Beware the Subtle Stealer of Dreams
Personally, these questions began cycling through my head about a week back when I had read an article by Darren Hardy on How to Win – Every Time! The How-To in his post all boils down to CONSISTENCY. If you are interested in how inconsistency is the “subtle stealer of dreams” as Darren calls them, I highly recommend checking out his article on the topic.
Moving forward then the question we should all start asking ourselves is; “What am I going to miss out on if I cannot maintain consistency in the pursuit of my goal?”
LESSON LEARNED: Beware the powerful temptress inconsistency; she is the subtle stealer of dreams.
