Here are 8 principles that will help you develop unstoppable consistency.
Don’t complicate things
The key to sustainable development is simplicity. Don’t get caught up in the small details.
For example: If you want to lose weight, don’t try to find the perfect workout and count every calorie in your diet.
Just wear your sneakers and go run!
Focus on one main thing
Choose one thing and stick to it until it sticks to you.
If it’s a skill or habit you’re working on, focus on it and master it until the first one becomes part of you.
Learn to not bite off more than you can chew.
Have a routine in the morning that you do as soon as you wake up.
This is powerful because what you do early in the day often sets the context for your day.
A good start often leads to a good day.
Set realistic goals and expectations
Don’t expect instant results after seeing other people’s success.
Things take time to develop.
The success stories you may hear about people who have become successful overnight are exceptional cases.
Aim high, but be realistic.
Rest is important
Work hard, but don’t forget to take care of yourself and take time off and relax along the journey.
Switch it up a little to refresh your mind and mood.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint!
Progress over perfection
It will take a long time to achieve perfection if there is such a thing as perfection in life.
A “perfectionist” way of thinking is very unproductive and inefficient.
Sometimes you may have to do things at an average level to maintain consistency.
Learn to say NO
Learning to say ” NO ” to things that don’t align with your goals is an integral part of building consistency.
Set your priorities and don’t let them distract you from your priorities.
Handle your mistakes
No matter how hard you try to be consistent, you are going to make mistakes from time to time.
If you make a mistake, try not to beat yourself up for it
Always focus on how you will bounce back.
However, do not let this become a habit.
