Day 3: #BlogLikeCrazy – The Benefits of Consistency
We’re 3 days into #BlogLikeCrazy and if you’re still rocking with me, THANK YOU!
I’ll probably say this a few more times, but truly I am grateful for your views, comments, encouragement, and shares.
To keep the consistency theme going, today, we’re going to be brief as we discuss the benefits of consistency.
It makes no sense for me to tackle the tips without also sharing the benefit, right? It would give a lack of follow through and that is simply just NOT my style.
If you still need a bit of convincing, buckle up and keep all hands inside the ride. We’re going to move through this quickly and I don’t want you to fall off and get left behind.
Studies show that it takes twenty-one days to form a new habit and “quiet as kept”, consistency is the ONLY way to form a new habit.
Hence the going theme of #BLOGLIKECRAZY. I am on my personal journey to gain consistency in my writing.
I have a laundry list of writing goals to achieve and those cannot happen if I am not intentionally focusing on my craft.
Consistency is a very critical driving factor for success (benefit).
It means that you’ve dedicated yourself to a set of goals for the growth and betterment of your life (also a benefit).
With consistency, your productivity increases and you’re constantly motivated to keep going and to improve in each stride towards your goal (benefit).
The pace of consistency sets unspoken guidelines and expectations for you to pursue more of what you love (benefit).
Consistency gives you purpose, it gives you reason, and it strengthens your perseverance (benefit).
I’ll use me for an example, of course.
Two words, the gym.
Pre-pandemic, I ALWAYS had the want and desire to go, but I just could not find my stride nor motivation to go alone.
I tried the trainer route, which worked for a while and helped me remove the training wheels but eventually for cost savings purposes, I fell off the wagon of that too.
Later, I asked a friend to hold me accountable to go to the gym at least three times a week and since then, neither of us have looked back.
Accountability helped us develop the consistency that we needed.
In time, I began to see the fruits of my labor and from that point forward, there was no looking back.
We will get into the ‘why’ behind my gym journey later but for now, I want you to consider how much you’re losing by not being consistent.
For me, as it pertains to writing, I see dollar signs, passive income dollar signs might I add, swiftly passing me by because I’ve allowed fear to keep me stagnant AND inconsistent for far too long.
My questions for you are this…
What are you NOT gaining access to because of your inability to be consistent? What benefit of life are you missing out on because of your inability to be consistent?
What blessings are you blocking because of your inability to be consistent?
Lastly, who’s life are you holding hostage because of your inability to be consistent?
For some of us, it’s bigger than our fears or our lives alone.
Generational blessings are attached to our ability to “stick to it” and to “stick to it” WELL.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve NEVER seen an inconsistent millionaire. If wealth is your goal and generational wealth is your desire, I have news for you…
INCONSISTENCY WILL NOT LEAD YOU THERE.
So, as we continue this journey together, I hope you enjoy the ride!
Until next time, #KeyInspires.
