Whether it is the consistency of smooth batter or a sack of nails, we need to find what defines us and stick to it, we need to begin and keep going. It all begins with a decision.
The dictionary defines consistency as: Conformity in the application of something, typically that which is necessary for the sake of logic, accuracy, or fairness… Consistency is clear then a decision to do something and commit to it with little variation.
What sparked this in my mind is a project that I’m working on. And, as with any big project it brought about with it some major hurdles.
As human “becomings” we are quick to claim fame that we reckon should be rightfully ours, totally dismissing the fact that with any great reward comes great sacrifice. And nature, being the diligent teacher that it is, begins teaching us this vital lesson from a very young age. If you look back, let’s say you can remember that far, how many times did you as a kid try to take your first steps only to go hurtling to the ground time and time again. How many times did you TRY? We don’t need to remember the exact number of tries but we all know it took determination and consistency of taking that 1st step and making it successful then the 2nd.
If we look at life in the same light. Look at every challenge as the 1st step to enable us to make the 2nd, and the 3rd…we can embrace consistency and commit to our purpose.
There will always be hurdles and boundaries that almost disarm the will to carry on. Persist though, persist until your consistency becomes a habit and your fear shrinks into a corner where it belongs.
Your inner voice should be louder than the outer chaos. Your dreams larger than the obstacles before you.
Commit then. Commit to your life. Daily.
🙂 let’s have an amazing week!
