How To Be More Consistent
Why is consistency important?
Consistency is the key driver to success. It helps you to stay focused and dedicated when working towards your goals.
1. Start Small
When working towards your goal, don’t overload yourself to begin with, as this can lead to overwhelm and resistance.
Instead, make a list starting with the highest priority at the top and create a schedule with mini goals along the way. This will help to help you to stay on track and motivated.
Find a way to celebrate yourself for reaching each milestone. This will keep you inspired to keep showing up and moving forward.
2. Find Your Time
Find the best time in your day to get your tasks done without procrastination or distraction.This will allow you to be much more focused and efficient.
If you have more energy in the morning, schedule in your training session for then. Make this a non-negotiable and remember how great you will feel afterwards.
Forget what everyone else is doing and find what works best for you.
3. Try, Try Again
When a session doesn’t go the way you had hoped, look for the lesson and try again tomorrow. A bad session doesn’t have to turn into a negative day or week.
Rather than be self-critical or defeated, show yourself compassion and look for the learning. These reflections will prove to be invaluable in getting you closer to your goal.
4. Prioritise You
Remember that it’s safe to prioritise your own needs and that your own goals are important too.
So often we’re taught that we should ensure that everyone else around us is happy, which can leave us feeling like we’re last on the list.
Schedule in your time for training or rehab and ask for the support of those around you with honouring this ‘me’ time. As the saying goes... “You can’t pour from an empty cup”.
5. Hold The Vision
Even if you aren’t seeing immediate results, remember that each day you are getting one step closer to your goal becoming a reality.
You don’t need to see fifty steps ahead, as it’s your next step that’s the most important. These baby steps will compound to create
huge shifts and transformations.
You can create a ‘goals list’ or vision board and leave it somewhere you see regularly as a reminder of what you’re working towards.
