How to Have Consistent and Strategic Success

by D'Arcy Benincosa

In this episode, I am diving into consistency and how it is vital to living a creative, fulfilling life. Being consistent in your actions is what drives success in your businesses, relationships, and life. Hit play!

Jim Rohn, once said, “The pain of discipline weighs ounces, but the pain of regret weighs tons.” In other words, consistent choices determine the life that you will have. Consistency is a powerful force that can help you achieve your goals, maintain your relationships, and live a fulfilling life.

One of the areas where consistency plays a significant role is in our daily habits. If you want to achieve success in any aspect of your life, you need to be consistent in your actions. For instance, if you want to book expensive clients you have to do the work, you need to be consistent in your marketing efforts, networking, and delivering excellent service to your existing clients. Lack of consistency will only result in a lack of results.

Consistency is not always easy, but it is essential for achieving our desired outcomes.

5 mantras that can help you stay consistent in your pursuits:

1. “Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. – Zen kōan.

This mantra reminds us that consistency is not a one-time event. It is a continuous process that requires ongoing effort. Just like chopping wood and carrying water are necessary for survival, consistency is necessary for achieving our goals.

2. Feed only what you want to grow

To be consistent, you need to focus your attention and efforts on the things that matter. This mantra reminds us to be mindful of the things we invest our time and energy in. If you want to grow a successful business, you need to feed it with consistent marketing efforts, excellent customer service, and quality products or services.

3. Commit to one creative act of beauty a day, for your soul

Consistency is not just about achieving external goals. It is also about nurturing our inner selves. This mantra reminds us to take time to do something creative that feeds our soul. Whether it’s writing, painting, or playing music, engaging in a creative act every day can help us stay inspired and motivated.

4. Say yes to your future

Consistency requires a long-term perspective. This mantra reminds us to keep our eyes on the prize and say yes to our future selves. Every action we take today affects our future, and by saying yes to our future, we can stay committed to our goals.

5. Always be in choice

This mantra reminds us that we are always in control of our lives. We may not be able to control external circumstances, but we can choose how we respond to them. Being consistent in our choices can help us create the life we want.

In conclusion, consistency is the key to a fulfilling life. Whether it’s in our daily habits, relationships, or pursuits, consistency helps us achieve our goals and live a purposeful life. As Jim Rohn said, “The pain of discipline weighs ounces, but the pain of regret weighs tons.” So, choose the pain of discipline, and stay consistent in your pursuit of a fulfilling life.
