The Power of Consistency

AristotleOne of the least talked about subject when it comes to success is the subject of consistency. There is no doubt that determination is a strong factor, but it is through the act of being consistent in you efforts to accomplish a task that will truly allow you to reach your goal.

Determination only lasts so long as most of us know when we set out to lose weight on January 1st each year. Setting up a plan to do the same thing each day or several times a week with a specific time allotted for workout and following through will lead you to where you want to go even without being determined to get it done.

If you saved just one dollar a day, even without interest you would have 3,650.00 saved in ten years. If it was 10 dollars a day your savings would be 36,500.00 in ten years. It could happen if you are consistent in your efforts. Where are right now compared to 10 years ago? Where do you want to be in 10 years? What consistent habits have you formed that didn’t allow you to get there?

The bottom line is that as boring as it may sound simple consistency leads to success. I wish I had more time to write on this subject but I have to go to work so I have a paycheck that comes in consistently every two weeks.
