Be ConsistentConsistency is one of the key things that separate successful people from others.
If you want to be successful, you need to either have this quality or you need to develop it.
Easier said than done! Right?

What does being consistent mean though?

Well, If you have a blog, it means writing your posts on a regular basis and getting them posted for your followers to read.
Your readers will always rely on you to get your ideas posted so it is important that you post at least once a week, preferably on the same day each week if circumstances permit.
Being consistent is also important to generating traffic to your website as you will need to have a consistent attitude toward certain related tasks.

Is It Easy To Be Consistent?

This can be difficult to all of us, and all of us get writers block now and then. Look I am not perfect. Who is?
The fact is that occasionally we all feel like things are too much effort or ask ourselves if it is all a waste of time .
This is human nature when results aren’t going our way YET!
Provided we look at the reason why we are doing these tasks and look for things that we are passionate about for inspiration, consistency is easy.

Consistently Believe.

Provided we look at our GOALS and dreams, then the FAITH and BELIEF that we have will carry us past these obstacles to our future successes.
It is important that we consistently have FAITH and BELIEF in ourselves, our chosen niche and our methods and tasks
Consistency is a quality that shows people that they can rely on you, it shows you that you can rely on your self.
Consistency is working just as hard when nobody is watching as you actually work when they are.
In fact it is important that you work even harder when nobody is watching as this will build the right mindset toward it and enable you to develop consistency as a second nature.

Do You Ask Can I Be Consistent?

Sometimes it helps to imagine that you do have someone watching you.
Someone who will hold you accountable and this will aid you to be consistent in your thoughts, your actions and then your results.
RELIABILITY is important in leadership. as a blog owner or a marketer your followers want to know that you will consistently provide them with great advice, quality information and point them toward excellent value products that will actually help them to get what they want.

How do you become consistent?

  • Success-in-babysteps Decide what you want to be consistent at and make a plan to achieve it.
  • Work to this plan in a structured way to consistently complete daily tasks.
  • Look at completion of these tasks as a small success toward your desired result.
  • Measure your progression as in how much quicker you become at completing tasks every day.
  • Measure results as soon as they start to happen and never before.

Example.

So You may want to write Auto Responder emails to your list of followers.
It is extremely important that you consistently provide valuable information to these people and build a relationship with them by showing them that you are a real person.
You cannot do this every now and then as they are looking to you to help them achieve something.
Ensure that they receive their mail on a regular basis and that it has quality information, something that they will be able to actually make use of.
I would love you to get involved and tell us what your views are on consistency, on being consistent and what inspires you about people who provide consistency to you.

  1. Hi Gary

    Consistence, I have a mind to be, but it is not always easy when I am trying to be consistent in a number of areas. When life gets in the way it spins everything out of whack. I am consistent about replies. If I am going to make a big effort to make a really good post (in my opinion) then I will appreciate anyone taking the time to read it and leave a comment. I try to respond as soon as I can. There are some that put out many posts, but take forever to reply to comments and sometimes never to all of them. May be they get lost in amongst many, but it is like if someone gives me something I want I will always say thank you and is not that the way comments should be acknowledged?

    Consistence is great but better to complete the full circle of gratitude. So as much as I would like to put out more posts on a regular basis, it just is not happening. I try for 3 or 4 a month. It all depends on what is happening in my life and also is there anything of substance that I can write about.

    Very good post and one I shall have to ponder over for awhile and see how I can improve on.

    Hi Mary,

    I completely agree about the importance of completing the circle of gratitude.
    You are in fact being extremely consistent yourself by answering all of your readers comments.
    This is something that you do consistently.
    It gives you the results that you require.
    Others may feel that by writing daily blog posts that this is giving them the results that they require.
    The great thing about a blog or online business is that it grows with you, you decide what areas you would like to improve and for what reason.
    We all have areas where we can improve and as long as we consistently work toward getting better at them whilst playing to our strengths.
    We will always be moving in the right direction.

    Thanks for your input.

    Hi Gary,

    Consistency is definitely important when trying to mind your business. It’s not one of those things you want to have to learn at the last minute.

    Unfortunately, most of us end up having to teach ourselves this skill. There are many reasons why consistency is difficult. Take the internet for example.

    There is so much to learn and technology changes so quickly. Sometimes we lose our consistency because we’re trying to keep of with changing tides.

    There’s always new ways to become better, but we should use this as a reason to keep starting over. And that’s what tends to happen quite often… start, stop…

    Thanks

    Sorry… I meant to say we shouldn’t use this as a reason to keep starting over…

  5. Gary says:

    Hey Wadud.
    I understand there are constant upgrades in technology, therefore we must adapt to them and grow with the changes
    What I mean by consistency Is to constantly work toward our goals in a methodical manner.
    Consistently doing the things that will move us forward irrespective of the changes around us. And as we get quicker and better, learning and applying new things that we can become consistent at.

    Thank you for your valued input.

  6. Nice post man. Free yourself from consistency. If you try to be consistent, you tied yourself to something. Don’t restrict yourself… Be Good, Do Good. That’s all.

      Hi m nirmal,
      I say we should agree to disagree.
      Consistency is something that shows reliability.
      I would rather be trained by, buy from or do business with somebody who shows consistency in what they do.
      Thank you for your input,
      Gary
