This is where most people drop out or fail on their path to success. They give up because they get bored of what they need to do or do not have enough patience to see results. Consistency is something that needs to go hand in hand with your determination and passion.
Have you ever asked yourself WHY you do something or WHY you want to achieve that something? Focus your energy for a moment and emphasize on the reason WHY!! Once you get this clear in your mind, the rest will simply follow. Your WHY should be so big that the obstacles that come in your way start to seem so small that you can simply overcome them. Allow me to state this with a simple illustration.
Shift away from your screen and look at any object around you that inspires you. Now while you look at that object, take your hand and extend it straight at your eye level. Doesn’t it blur your vision on that object. That is because it shifted your focus from that object to the obstacle- your hand. If you slowly bring your hand closer to your eyes, it completely blocks out your vision on the object. This is when we focus on the problems that come our way. It just gets bigger and bigger and we eventually give up on our dreams and goals. Now taking your hand back to it’s original position, shift your focus back on the object that inspires you, don’t you see the obstacle- your hand, blur now.
This illustration was to help you understand one thing. Do not focus on the obstacles that come your way, it will sway you away from your path and make your dreams/goals seem difficult or impossible to achieve. Instead choose to stay focused on your goals and the obstacles will automatically blur out. This is one reason your WHY should be so strong that it does not shift your focus away from your dreams. You continue to move in the right direction with dedication and eventually achieve what you desire for.
Your WHY will fuel your consistency level and continue to keep you motivated. It is definitely not easy to keep up with, *but not impossible right*, but if at the time you want to give up, remember the reason WHY you are doing what you do or the reason WHY you want that something. You will get back on track.
Keep Pushing Yourself!!
