Consistency is key. It doesn't really matter what you are working on, discussing, or thinking about... consistency is key. In order to make sure something "sticks", you have to put in the work. Like real work.. not half the work.. the whole shebang. Time, effort, and CONSISTENCY are what it takes for EVERYTHING!
Many have read or heard about Malcolm Gladwell's theory on 10,000 hours. That it takes 10,000 hours to get really good at something or to "learn" it. Many subscribe to the theory that it takes 21 days to create a habit or to have something "stick". I say again... CONSISTENCY is the key. When you are consistent with your efforts, you reap rewards.
You want to lose 50 pounds... then create a calorie deficit and STICK to it. It won't happen overnight.. Consistency is the key. You want to play the guitar.... then find a program, practice and STICK with it. It won't happen immediately.... Consistency is the key. You want to hit home runs... then get in the batting cage and practice. You won't hit one over the next game.... Consistency is the key.
All too often, we want something in life, whatever that may be, but we are not willing to put in the time, effort, or the CONSISTENCY to make it happen. We tend to give up when the first negative thing happens, but we can't. We have to fight the urge to quit... we need to buckle down... double our efforts... pull ourselves up.... and STICK with it! Things may get tough, it may seem like you are going backward but CONSISTENCY is the key. Whatever you are fighting for, working towards, or struggling with, stick with it.... CONSISTENCY is the key.
