In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently. - TONY ROBBINS
I was at a friends house the other day and noticed all sorts of Starbucks mugs. He traveled a ton for work and the mugs were his memories. I was perplexed because I could recall him deeming himself a "coffee snob." How could this coffee aficionado turn to Starbucks?
When I asked him about being a "coffee-snob" yet going to Starbucks all over the world, his response was unforgettable. He simply said, "I go there because I know what I'm going to get."
He explained their consistent tastes and methods. He even loved walking into stores and seeing the different types of design, yet they felt the same. They were consistent. They were memorable to him.
Think about the types of restaurants you like and why?
I'll admit 100% our family loves Cheesecake Factory. If you have small kids and want to eat out, go to Cheesecake Factory.
We go there because it's consistent and easy. I'm not saying it's the best food. I'm not saying it's the best service. I'm saying, it's consistent and easy for a family of 5 to have a meal together.
It's consistent and that's why we love Cheesecake Factory. We also love it because they serve enormous amounts of food.
You enjoy consistency more than you may realize. Take for instance things like:
water in your home
Electricity in your home
So much of life hinges on consistency. You love it. I love it, but why do you skip it for yourself?
Just the other day a client of mine shared an obstacle they were going through. When I asked about their habits aligning with their goals, they simply said, "I don't have enough time?"
Think about how many important things in life are pushed to the side because your mind tells you, "I don't have enough time?"
Think about the dreams you have buried because, "you haven't had enough time."
Think about the relationships you have missed out on because, "you haven't had enough time."
You love consistent mobile phone service and internet to numb your brain while your dreams scream from the dirt below.
My challenge to you today is to take some time and think about some of these questions to yourself. The goal is to get uncomfortable, feel fear and lean into your purpose and passion.
The first thing to do is journal. Yes, I said journal and be consistent with it. And, make sure you review it weekly. No point writing something if you're not going to use the data or information.
Find a time that works best for you.
My time to journal is in the morning, but night time could be better for you. Both would be the best. The more data you can input, the better your output.
Let me give you some prompts to get you going. I'd also recommend this Greenlights journal by Matthew Mcaunahey
Question 1: What do you want in life? What do you want to become?
Question 2: What habits need to be more consistent and why?
Question 3: What is stopping you or blocking you from consistency? What is blocking you from what you want to become?
Question 4: Maybe you have stalled, what can you do to restart the process?
Question 5: What could you do more of to boost improvement?
Question 6: What should you continue to stimulate the progress?
Question 7: What is the date when you can start this new progress?
Question 8: What are some past wins which will help inspire you to go after more wins?
You know what you need to do. You've failed or missed it, no big deal. Give yourself some grace. Forgive yourself, and get back to work.
You have an assignment on this Earth. Someone is looking for you to solve the problem they have. We are all connected in some small way.
Stay consistent and you will become the champion you were created to be. I guarantee it.
Rooting for you.
Let me know what I can do to help.
❤️ - Anthony
