I want to focus a little bit on consistency and ask you to have a think about how consistent are you?
It’s really in three places.
1. One is in your mindset, how consistent are you being in what you’re feeding your mind? Is it consistently positive? Is it consistently believing you can achieve what you want to achieve? Or do you feel like you’re on a bit of a roller coaster, in your own mind where some days you’re full of enthusiasm and self belief and other days, those mind monkeys are creeping in and you’re starting to tell yourself, ‘Oh, I’m not good enough. I can’t do this’ or full of fear, full of judgement, that roller coaster of inconsistency in our own minds, can so easily keep us stuck!
2. The second place of inconsistency or consistency is about who we’re being. Are you being consistent in your own being in who you want to be? Within the world, within your family, within your relationships within your business? How do you want to be? Who do you want to be in there? And can you find that consistency of how you’re showing up?
3. The third area is in what are you doing. How consistent are you in what you’re doing to get the results that you want to get to bring into your life, to bring into your business, to bring into your leadership what it is that you really want and you believe in? I encourage you to have a look at what’s been working really well for you. So take a look at your organisation, take a look at your leadership and think about the areas that feel strong, feel really positive. And take a good look back over the last few months and ask yourself, Where have I been consistent to bring me this positivity? Because there will always be consistency. Is it consistent in your beliefs about what you’re doing? Is it consistently about how you’re showing up? Who you’re being? Is it consistency about what you’ve been doing every day, every week that you’ve been showing up with those positive habits? And then have a look at things. If you’ve got areas where you think actually, that’s not in flow, it’s not working the way I want it to at the moment, it’s not going so well do exactly the same thing. But go back over the last few months. And again, ask yourself, Where have I been consistent? And where have I been inconsistent? Is it been in what I’ve been telling myself? Have I been keeping my own self stuck? Through my own mindset? Because I’ve been inconsistent with the messaging I’ve been giving myself, so therefore I’m holding myself back. Has it been inconsistency in who you’re being? So you’re infused and positive one day and actually feeling a bit meh the next? And is it to do with your actions? Where’s the inconsistency in your actions? It’s really important when we commit to wanting to do something, whatever it is, it doesn’t have to be big things, whether it’s, you know, to do with our life to do with our business, to do with our leadership, when we commit to saying I want to make that happen, I want to achieve that I want to bring that in, then we have to get committed to what we need to do, regularly, habitually, to make that happen. If I got committed to wanting to achieve a certain amount of turnover in my business, and then was really inconsistent about getting my message out into the world, then I’m going to be stuck. I’m going to have that if I wanted to commit to losing a stone in weight and then I was really healthy Monday to Friday, but Saturday and Sunday, every single week I went on a big blowout, and had takeaway and had cake and ate whatever I wanted. That inconsistency isn’t going to get me to where I want to get to.
So it’s just encouragement for you today to really have a look at what’s working, what’s not working. Look back over the last few months.
What have you been doing consistently to get you to the point where you’re saying, ‘Yep, that’s working’.
What have you been doing inconsistently? How have you been inconsistently to get you to a point where you’re saying ‘that’s not working so well’.
None of it is stuck. None of it is permanent.
So whatever you’re coming up with, brilliant, be curious about it and then make yourself a commitment from today for a governed about a time, maybe it’s 30 days, to say for the next 30 days I’m going to make a commitment to doing something deliberately to get me the results I want to have.
Play with it. Have fun with it. But consistency is the name of the game.
