Win or lose...
Succeed or fail...
Reach goals or miss goals...
This is the one thing you do, 100% of the time. You always get this right, no matter what your outcome is.
Consistency is what keeps you where you are or moves you forward. Consistency is also known as habits.
Keeping current habits is easier while acquiring new habits is harder. New habits move you toward your goals, while old habits keep you at your current level.
New habits are harder to acquire and so, easier to stop. And when we stop trying to acquire those habits, we stop moving forward.
You are always either moving forward or not. It always comes down to your consistent performance.
Every branding season, my friend and I talk about our roping. For myself, each branding is a different experience and it always comes down to what I did in the days before I had to rope. If I was consistent in roping the dummy and practicing my roping, I have a better day branding. If I don't and just try to wing it...well, I usually suck!
So does that mean I always practice? Nope. I hate to admit it, but it's easier not to. Isn't that lame?
You are thinking that, I know.
But now, think about something you've tried to get better at or something you've tried to change. What are you doing that moves you toward that goal? Or are you? What habits are you practicing daily that are moving you backward?
How you start your day and what actions you take will determine your results every time.
Are you consistently staying in the same place? Or, are you consistently working on things that will move you forward?
Adjust your habits. Be consistent, in the right direction.
