Sounds cliche, right? Of course it does. Take a moment and think about whether or not you’re consistent with anything you’re involved in.
Smaller scales always lead to a larger scale. You want to save money? You want to go on vacations, but can’t afford to. If you buy coffee on a weekly basis, the amount of money you can save from that alone will surely pay for a vacation. You need to be consistent in saving.
What about wanting to be a better person? Well, if you’re someone who just comes off as a rude, condescending, disrespectful person, do you think you can be sporadic with kind behavior. No, you’ll have to be kind to everyone including yourself, day in and day out. You have to be consistent as well or you won’t be able to adopt the new, better person behavior. Do nice things for people you know to start and then when you’re consistent and comfortable doing so, broaden your horizons. Move on to people you don’t know and are unfamiliar with. You’ll get somewhere, don’t worry.
Negative thinker? Well, this is a big one for a lot of people and yes, it’s unfortunate. More often than not someone comes to me with an issue they’re having and they state that they can’t see a way out. Believe me, it’s happened to me just as much as it’s happened to you. I’ll almost always tell that person that they need to practice doing certain things that they enjoy doing, on a daily basis. They have to keep up their positive vibes and good thoughts. There’s no better way to do that other than doing the things you love doing. The key word here is, YOU. No one else is responsible for your negativity other than you. Don’t get it twisted and discruntled. Don’t be the person who blames everyone around them.
On a positive note, let’s talk about simply being good or getting good or great at something. It could be performing magic, basketball, poker, a certain video game, photography, etc. It could be absolutely anything your human heart desires. However, you won’t get great or sometimes even good at something if you’re inconsistent. As an example, there are quite a few friends of mine who come to me saying they wish they could do more push-ups. Man or woman, it doesn’t matter. My response to them, “start with assisted pushups and then move on to doing 5 at a time, 10 at a time, and so on. Tailor the numbers to make them your own.
STAY CONSISTENT. DONT BLAME OTHERS. Most importantly, be positive and spread that positivity.
