We live in the information age where everything is available within a few clicks and a WiFi Zone. It is easy to understand the steps that you need to take to reach your goal, yet to put it in practice, is difficult. This is because of consistency.
The tough task of researching and learning from others’ life experiences has greatly reduced. The only effort we need to put in is being disciplined and consistent!
Recently I thought consistency was one of my strengths until I did the following exercise:
Step 1: Write a list of daily tasks you need to do in order to reach your goal.
Get a pen and paper. I had a weekly planner and it worked wonderfully. Write a list of the daily things you need to do in order to reach your goal. Or things you need to do so your body and mind are working at an optimal level.
For example, part of my list was:
– Calling the Cosmic Forces (you can read more about that here); and
– Being grateful.
Step 2: Mark off the things you accomplished.
At the end of each day check the daily tasks you have completed and make a note of the tasks you have not completed.
Step 3: At the end of the week count how many times you did the daily tasks.
Was it at 4 times a week? How about 5? 5 is pretty good. Mine was 2 or 3 times a week. I was shocked. I really thought I did it more often. But this exercise proved I was not consistent. I then practiced it a second week. The figures got better. Now in the third week the figures are looking really good!
If anything, try to do the things on your list at least 4 times a week because that will equate to every second day, or most of the week.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. Initially I felt really down and then I realised I can only improve and so worked on that.
I hope this has helped or inspired you. Please feel free to post your tips in the comments section below.
Wishing you lots of happiness.
