In a world full of “quick fixes,” be the consistency.
There are two types of people in the world – ones who want the “easy” route, who try quick fix after quick fix, hoping to get ahead. And then there are the ones who consistently tread forward, day after day, taking the small steps necessary to get where they want to be.
Now the important question becomes… which one are you? Which one do you want to be?
It’s hard to be patient when it comes to getting what you want. It’s hard watching others achieve their goals, hoping you’ll one day get there. But what you don’t always see is the steps it’s taken other people to get to where you want to be.
Social media makes that hard. We see the highlight reel. We think it’s an overnight success. That *poof* those people woke up and lost weight or own a successful business or can lift heavy or whatever the case may be.
But the reality of it is, most people have taken years to achieve their huge goals. They took small consistent steps to get where they want to be. That day in and day out consistency is what got them there.
Yes, there are the anomalies that people fell into but that isn’t the norm. Believe me, I wish it was!
But weight loss, starting a new business, running a successful business, whatever the case may be, takes time. It takes consistency. It takes doing the work. Because it is just that… work.
You didn’t wake up one day and gain weight overnight. You didn’t wake up completely unhealthy overnight. You won’t magically become healthy or lose weight overnight either.
That’s one of the most important things to remember. It will take time. It will take consistency. It will take work. It will take effort.
But I can promise you this… when you do achieve your goals, it will 100% be worth it. To look back and see all you’ve accomplished. To see the hard work you’ve put in. It will all be worth it.
So take those small steps consistently. Keep putting in the work. And little by little, you’ll achieve your goals.
Have a fantastic week and keep being consistent!
