Day 12 of the 2024 yearbook! Today, I want to focus on staying consistent with any goals you have set for yourself this year.
Staying consistent is a significant topic online, and everyone has their own view on what it means to ‘stay consistent.’ For me, it’s pretty simple — it means ‘staying consistent’! LOL
If you set yourself a goal of doing 50 push-ups by the end of the month, and each day you do 10 push-ups, well, that’s being consistent. If you want to write a book and set a goal of writing 500 words a day for 30 days and you do it, well, that’s being consistent! It’s pretty simple when you strip away all the online noise and ‘guru bs’ you see and hear online.
Of course, there is a massive difference between being consistent and just going through the motions. There is an even bigger difference between making progress and staying the same when it comes to being consistent. Anyone can show up every day and say, ‘Well, I was consistent but didn’t see any results’ — but did you put the work in?
If you do 10 pushups every day for 30 days, by the end of the 30 days, you should be able to do 50 pushups in one go (or at least give it a good go) because you were consistent and put the effort in. Another thing you need to do is find the right balance for yourself. Just because someone shows up 5 days a week and you show up 3 days a week doesn’t mean you are not being consistent or putting in the effort. You are still being consistent, putting in the effort, and reaching any targets and goals you have, and that is the main point in all of this.
Don’t be jealous or put off by what others call ‘being consistent’ or what level they are on because we are all on different levels and reach our goals at different times. The main thing is that you stay true to yourself, reach your goals, and achieve success at your own pace.
