If you want to be successful at anything, you’ll firstly need to be consistent in your actions. I want to explain how you can do this and what I mean by that.
Consistency might seem easy, but most of the time, aren’t you just being consistent in what’s easy, rather than what you really want to do?
There are some steps you can take to make sure that your consistency is focused in the right direction:
Know what you want in the future
If you want to be successful, that’s great, but ask yourself what you want to be successful in.
Once you know exactly what you want, things will seem much clearer and you’ll be able to move onto the next step.
Think long term
Now that you know what you want, think long term. How are you going to get there?
Your long term goal should help you keep your eyes on the prize, so whenever you feel lost and don’t know what you do next, think about the end result and you’ll find your way back on track.
Be consistently persistent
Don’t be dejected if things don’t always go your way. What you lose all of your lives when playing a video game you don’t turn it off, you try again.
So mentally prepare yourself for the occasional slip up and don’t let it get to you. You can always get back on that horse.
Feel the tension
The next step you should consider is that you need to get used to tension.
When most people feel any tension they tend to run, and is something that will stop you from being consistent in your actions, so you’ll need to overcome this.
So get used to feeling tense and use it to fuel you forward.
Now being consistent is harder than you think, so don’t beat yourself up if you don’t achieve it constantly. And it shouldn’t cloud all of the hard work that you put in prior.
Life has many bumps in the road so take things as they come and know how to carry on as you meant to once you get over that bump.
