Here’s the fact…consistency is the key! It really doesn’t matter what you are trying to accomplish, just be consistent. Wanna try to refute my theory…go for it.
Think about it. If you want to finish a marathon, you have to run…A LOT . If you are learning a new language, you have to immerse yourself in it for long periods of time. If you are trying to build your practice, you have to take daily action toward new patient acquisition and PVA.
So, New Years has past and many of you have made the obligatory resolutions that you’ve been told have no chance of sticking. Let me help…MAINTAIN CONSISTENCY! I don’t care how you do it. I don’t care how much you love fried food or hate exercise or are too tired to practice the piano. Winners just flat out get it done.
Regret over past failures will get you nowhere. Use the past only as a reference and NOTHING ELSE. Keep your emotional focus toward the future. Visualize the finish line of the race, the completion of your first authored work, or your miniscule waistline. The pictures in your mind will carry you through.
Don’t waste this opportunity to develop your consistency muscle - January 1st is a springboard for a new shot at the title. Decide what you want and take action. Don’t stop until you fulfill the goal. Be consistent with your passion, your focus, your energy and your behavior.
You show me a leader in any arena, and I’ll show you a model of consistency.
