Build consistency in your life.
In your personal and work life.
In your exercise, your sleep routine, your eating, your relationships, your education.
Build consistency in life if you want to see any meaningful results in any area of life, be consistent with your actions. Be deliberate. Be intentional.
The act of showing up every day is more important than any talent you can ever be born with.
The act of showing up IS your talent.
Consistently taking action. Not giving up. That is your superpower. Harness it.
It is the difference between good and great performance.
Practice makes perfect. It is a great expression and the reason is that it is true.
There is this misconception that you need to be born with certain talents to be able to do certain things in life. Whether painting, playing the piano, speaking different languages, playing sports or any other skill for that matter.
Talent is a lazy man’s way of saying; I can’t be bothered to put in the time and effort to learn and master this thing. So I am just going to blame it on a lack of talent.
Yes, having a certain genetic disposition is great. Some people are naturally better at somethings and if you are short, you probably don’t have a very good shot at the NBA but any skill can be developed. Any.
I am not saying its easy, I am saying it is possible.
So don’t hide behind the excuse of ‘talent’ to not pursue your dreams.
Anything worthwhile takes times, effort, intention and deliberate practice.
We expect consistency from the businesses and people we interact with, whether it’s your favourite restaurant, coffee shop, your accountant or a work colleague.
Great businesses thrive because of consistency and so can you.
Show up every day and do what needs to be done. Some days it will be easy and some days you will absolutely hate it. Do it nevertheless. Keep your goal front and centre.
Build consistency and watch how it will transform your life.
