5 Incredible Effects of Consistency That Make it a Crucial Element to Winning

Published

on

Consistency is the art of doing the same things again and again. It’s also defined as the art of maintaining a certain amount of effort for a long period or doing the things that will make you reach your goals every single day.

My analysis of the most successful people made me realize that besides hard work, their ability to be consistent was what made them reach their wildest dreams. These folks never gave up, and nothing stopped them from continuously doing the actions needed for them to reach their goals.

That being said, I believe consistency is a necessity when it comes to success because only the consistent folks experience breakthroughs that enable them to win.

In this article, I will provide you with five effects of consistency that make it a main ingredient for success/winning

  1. Few people are consistent

If you are consistent in your field, you will surely win because few people are consistent. In the early stages of their careers, many people are usually eager to put in effort on a daily basis. However, after a certain period, several folks fail to exert the same effort they exerted when they started their careers hence allowing those who continue working hard to win.

One thing I recently realized, is that successful bloggers succeeded because of consistency. Millions of people always start a blog but only those who manage to consistently post articles win.

  1. Consistency Makes People to Take You Seriously

People will start taking you seriously when they realize you are consistent. They will be amazed by how you manage to consistently take actions that move you towards your goal since the day you started your project/business/career, and for this reason, they will be interested in purchasing or viewing whatever you are working on.

If you are a businessman, people will be interested in buying your products, and if you are a blogger, people will start gaining interest in reading your posts because they will bump into them all the time.

  1. Consistency Leads to Discipline

You cannot become successful if you are not disciplined. For this reason, consistency leads to success because it creates discipline. You become disciplined when you train yourself to do what is supposed to be done, for you to reach your goals, every day.

  1. Consistency Will Enable You to Know What Works and What Doesn’t

The only way to know whether your strategy works or not is to use it consistently for an extended period. Consistency enables you to evaluate your strategies and adopt those that work.

  1. Consistency Allows You to Experience Breakthroughs

Only the people who put in the effort everyday experience breakthroughs. Inventors who keep inventing eventually come up with something the whole world loves. Musicians who produce songs every day manage to create a hit song. Similarly, producers who keep producing movies create global blockbusters, and entrepreneurs who keep creating businesses manage to come up with explosive business ideas.

Conclusion

With this in mind, you must be consistent if you want to see the results you want because consistency will enable you to be disciplined, and it will result in you knowing the strategies that work for you. Besides this, consistency will make people to start taking your projects or career seriously, and it will enable you to win because most of your competitors will give up.

Therefore, dare to continuously work towards your goals because consistency won’t fail you. It is the only assurance that you will experience a breakthrough sooner or later.

5 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard

Published

on

Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that have made people work extremely hard. However, there are also unique but not necessarily positive factors that have made people work extremely hard towards their goals. Guess you are ready to know them.

Here are they:

  1. The Desire to Prove People Wrong

Many people have worked extremely hard towards their goals because they wanted to prove the naysayers wrong. These folks wanted to show the people who doubted them that they can achieve greatness.

An example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. This guy worked extremely hard in his acting career because he wanted to prove wrong the people who told him that he won’t be a successful actor since he had a German accent, and a body that was too big for acting.

  1. Competition

Even though I have discouraged competition in my previous posts, I believe that it sometimes makes people work extremely hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked extremely hard because of the fierce competition in their niches. These folks knew that they would fail to secure a sizeable market share if their competitors outworked them.

For this reason, it’s inarguable that competition can force you to work harder whether you like it or not because if you don’t work hard when facing stiff competition, your competitors will become better than you and throw you out of the game.

  1. Faith

A large percentage of successful people succeeded because they had faith in their dreams. Faith made them completely sure that they will achieve their dreams if they worked harder, and therefore, it motivated them to work hardest towards their goals.

Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams often work harder than those who doubt. Doubt drains your energy because it demotivates you, while faith pumps energy in you and motivates you to push yourself harder because you firmly know that success will come if you toil.

  1. Pain

People also work harder towards their goals if they believe that achieving them will eliminate some sort of pain. For instance, the pain of living in poverty motivated Eminem to work extremely hard towards a better life. In some of his songs, the rapper reveals how the pain he felt when he realized that his 9-5 salary could not sustain his family forced him to work very hard in music.

All the pain inside amplified by the fact that I can’t get by with my 9-5, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family – Eminem, Lose Yourself

  1. The Need to Use Success As Revenge

“Success is the best revenge to pay you back.” – Eminem, Where I’m At.

I know people who are working so hard because they experienced rejection. These folks believe that working harder will make them meet success and make the people who rejected them regret.

Conclusion

Besides faith, the above factors show that you can use negative states of mind to push yourself harder. The main reason we are always encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is because most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us.

What other unique factors do you know that can make people work harder?

The Top 5 Ways To Embrace Patience

Published

on

My research on successful individuals made me realize that all successful folks were patient. They worked for a period of 3 to 10 years without quitting. For this reason, it dawned on me that I also have to embrace delay whether I like it or not.

However, I realized that embracing delay was pretty hard because I have to work diligently and patiently without getting discouraged even when my results don’t arrive as early as I expected. This realization made me contemplate on why it’s hard for people to master patience even though it’s a primary key to success.

Anyway, I thought about patience for a week and I realized the five ways we/you can be patient

Here are they

  1. Stop Wanting to Prove People Wrong

If you want to achieve your goals so that you prove people wrong you will become very impatient because you will want things to happen as fast as possible so that you appear right. Therefore, to become more patient, avoid wanting to prove people wrong. Just work towards your goals with nobody in your mind.

I loved proving people wrong but I ditched this behaviour after realizing that I usually want to progress quickly whenever I want to use my achievements to prove some folks wrong.

  1. Stop Focusing On the Outcome

It will be impossible for you to be patient if you constantly focus on your results because most of the time, you won’t see the results you expected. For example, if you are a blogger and you are targeting 10,000 visitors per day, you will be impatient and you might give up if you constantly check your stats because it might take long before you reach your target.

However, you will embrace patience if you forget about the results and start concentrating on acquiring the skills and knowledge required for you to achieve your goals.

  1. Know What Makes You Impatient

To embrace delay, you must know the factors that make you impatient and start avoiding them. For me, I avoided competing and comparing myself with others after realizing that these factors make me an impatient individual. It dawned on me that I always feel that my dreams are taking long to come true whenever I compete or compare myself with others.

  1. Understand that it Takes Long to Succeed

One of the main reasons why I’m a little bit patient is that I know that it took approximately 5 to 15 years of hard work for most successful folks to achieve their wildest dreams. This knowledge makes me realize that it might also take time for me to achieve my dreams, and for this reason, I have to embrace patience.  Also, it makes me know that waiting is part of the journey, and therefore, patience is a virtue I must master.

  1. Surround Yourself With Dreamers

You are more likely to be more patient if you surround yourself with dreamers because you’ll realize that their success is also taking long to arrive. My dreamer friends made me a patient individual because I realized that just like me, they are not meeting success quickly despite their hard work. They always make me realize that delay is a normal occurrence to dream chasers, and therefore I have no option but to work and wait.

Conclusion

If we wait long enough, we’ll meet success. Therefore, we must cultivate patience if we want to live the life we want. We must also understand that patience is one of the primary keys to success because it enables us to persevere and persist without being frustrated. It might be hard to be patient but it’s not impossible. If some ordinary people succeeded in life because they managed to be patient, why not us?
