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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.

If You Are Chasing Your Dream, You Are Fucked
This article is strictly meant for all those fucked up folks chasing their dreams. I always give you guys good news, but today I have bad news for you.
I believe you’ve put yourself in serious trouble by deciding to pursue your dreams because you have no choice but to persevere the hardships that all dream chasers face. You’ll have to endure the sleepless nights, anxieties, doubts, the feeling of giving up, and all other ‘negative’ things associated with dream chasing.
The good thing is that you can avoid these hardships by giving up. However, if you give up, you’ll have to live with deep regret and severe depression for the rest of your life because you’ll see people who were less skilled than you achieving what you gave up on.
Let’s say you want to be a rich and famous actor, and you know that you have higher chances of achieving this dream than most people. However, you give up after facing various challenges. A few years later, you see the people you knew were worse than you becoming award-winning actors. How will you feel?
You’ll feel bad, and people will notice it, and they’ll remind you that you had a better chance at succeeding yet you gave up.
That being said, it’s clear that you are fucked if you are following your dreams because you’ve set yourself for either regret or facing the many obstacles dream chasers face.
You’ll live with regret if you give up, and if you don’t give up, you’ll have to work hard till the day you’ll succeed. You’ll have to make lots of sacrifices, face criticism and rejection, force yourself to work every single day and experience slow progress even though you are working your ass-off.
I’m sorry for you dear because as a dream chaser, there is no turning back since you are like someone who landed on an island and burned all his boats. You just have to face the hardships dream chasers face or give up and drown in depression, stress, and anger forever. Either Way, You Are Fucked.
It’s horrifying, but it’s the damn truth. Following your dreams isn’t all fun and games, and so is living with REGRET and drowning in alcoholism because you gave up.
I love you so much. Thanks for reading

5 Proven Factors That Can Make Your Hard Work As Useless As A Politician’s Brain
I’m a firm supporter of hard work, and I believe success is impossible without hard work. However, I believe some factors can make your hard work useless. These factors might make you fail regardless of how hard you work.
Here are they:
- Playing Safe
Hard work and playing safe equals frustration and lack of progress. Hard work only works if you take risks because taking risks opens you up to many opportunities which can result in you making huge steps in your career.
Therefore, be ready to be left behind if you are a risk-averse hard worker because you’ll always avoid taking advantage of risky opportunities that your competitors will exploit.
‘Travelling on a risk-free road, unfortunately, won’t get you to any important destination.’ – Ernie Zelinski
- The Lack of Uniqueness
Your hard work will be as useless as shit if you don’t stand out. In the book, Purple Cow, Seth Godin explains how your business or project might fail to attract customers if you don’t offer unique services or products. Today, the competition is tough, and your talent or business won’t get noticed if it is not unique. To be noticed, you have to offer something unique the way Lana Del Rey does it in the music industry. You have to be remarkable and different because no matter how hard you work, you might fail if what you offer is common.
- Poor Social Skills
Your hard work might be as useless as trap music if you don’t have the right connections. Poor social skills prevent you from having the right connections because they push people away. Besides this, they prevent you from effectively networking hence reducing your chances of success. Conversely, good social skills attract success because they make you a good networker who attracts people with the right connections.
- Poor Health
No matter how hard you work, you won’t succeed if you neglect your health. Poor health leads to failure because it results in decreased energy and focus levels. Besides this, poor health increases your chances of contracting diseases that might force you to regularly take long breaks from your work hence preventing you from being consistent, thus leading to failure.
- A Poor Team
If you are working on something with two or more people, your hard work will be useless as my high school diploma if your partners are lazy, unfocused, risk-averse, stupid, egocentric, weed-smoking, alcoholic idiots. These folks will always drag you ten steps behind every time you make a huge step forward. Besides this, you will also waste lots of energy and time trying to make them a suitable team.
All people who succeeded after working with a team did so because they worked with team members who were as determined and focused as them. Therefore, realize that your hard work will be wasted if you have a poor team.
Working hard and still failing is a depressive thing. Therefore, we must always pinpoint the factors that can make us fail regardless of our hard work. I believe there are many other factors that can make an individual’s hard work useless. You are free to add these factors to the comment box below.
