Steps on staying consistent.
Have you been working in something and you’ve been wondering why you do not yet see positive results?
Once, there were two young men, Darlington and his friend, Paul. They were both working on a project. If successful, the said project could make them famous, lift them and fetch them millions within months.
A common thing with most projects is that they just don’t seem to work out at first; they need patience and consistency.
One day, Darlington heard of a get-rich-quick scheme, according to his source, the said platform could make them rich in a matter of days.
Darlington wanted Paul to be a part of it, but Paul refused. Darlington then took his share of the said project, sold it and invested it in his newfound platform.
Though the work was too complicated and stressful for Paul, he single-handedly took over the project, and in a few months, it became a success.
The news went round that Paul’s project was a success, Darlington heard the news, but it was too late for him as he had already taken his share of the project. So, he lost his right to it.
A few weeks later, Darlington heard of another quicker means of making money, then he left his old platform and went after the newer platform.
Darlington became a confused man, and confusion turned into frustration.
Here’s how you can be consistent.

Renewing And Retraining Your Mind,
One of the most prominent ways on how you can stay consistent is by making up your mind.
Who you are now is a reflection of your mind.
To stay consistent, you need to renew and retrain your mind.
Your mind is the entity that’s capable of lifting you or pulling you down.
Make up your mind that you want to stay consistent at doing something, tell yourself that you’ll never give up no matter the circumstances.
Anything you tell yourself is half-accomplished.
When you tell yourself that you want to stay consistent, your mind begins to work in that direction.
Your mind is the greatest asset bestowed upon you by God.
Maximizing Your Tims,
Learn to take advantage of each passing minute. Every second is unique.
You can be consistent by maximising your time. Plan your day before it even begins.
When you have a plan on how you are going to spend your day, you’ll find it hard to waste time unnecessarily.
You cannot avoid the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
— Abraham Lincoln
Maximize your days because when lost, it can never be regained.
There is enough time for you to carry out any activities you wish to carry out.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to stop but learning to dance in the rain.
If you wait for the perfect moment to do something, it’ll never be done.
Write A Vision,
God said unto Habakkuk;
Write a vision, make it plain upon the table that he who reads it may run.
The easiest way to staying Consistent is by writing a Vision.
A written vision is a half-achieved one. Any vision that has not been written cannot be achieved.

When you write a vision for your future, it guides your actions and thoughts. A man with a vision is one who is consistent.
Achieving your vision becomes easier when you write it down.
Unravelling Your Potential,
You are not inconsistent because you are weak or timid; you have the potential to become consistent.
You still feel that a particular thing is too big for you to handle because you have not yet unravelled your potential. Your potential can be explained. Yes, you can resolve your potential.
Potential refers to unrealised abilities.
You can stay consistent if you unravel your potential.

Procrastination is a thief of time. It is a terrible habit.
Consistency is only possible if no bad habits or addiction is hindering you.

Others feel too lazy to do anything, and they keep putting off the important tasks until it’s too late, that’s Procrastination.
To be disciplined, you need to be consistent, and one of the ways you can stay consistent is by being disciplined.
Staying disciplined is the key to staying consistent.
A disciplined man will not give up when certain things happen; instead, it will make him stronger and better than he previously was.
Discipline is nearly equivalent to Consistency.
