Take Consistent Actions!

Aug 17, 2007
I have been to quite a number seminar to date, literally spending thousands of dollars to learn from successful people. Usually, they will share a bit of their backgrounds and stories. One thing that I find common among all of speakers is that they take consistent actions to pursue their goals.

One story is that the speaker invested his time from 11pm to 3am every day for 5 years before he achieved the result that he had wanted. Yes, 5 years of hard work.

Another speaker trained consistently and rigorously for a period of time before he embarked on his trip to conquer Mount Everest. Yes, he did achieve his goal.

Yet another speaker told of how she has succeeded in her business by starting off as part-time. She consistently committed 1 hour every day to build her business for a period of time before she started to see result.

Unfortunately, most of us want instant results by taking actions. If there are no guaranteed instant results, most of us will be put off. Some of us may take actions, but if we do not see the progress after a while, we give up.

Imagine you are going to run a marathon of 42 km. The consistent actions that you take maybe like this:
1.Run 5km every day for first month
2.Run 10km every day for the second month
3.Run 15km every day for the third month and so on.

If you have taken actions to train consistently for a period of time, you will definitely be able to finish the marathon. But if you give up in the first month because you cannot see yourself progressing, you will never going to complete the marathon.

No matter what you do, you need to take consistent actions to see result! Please note that consistent actions do not mean repeated actions. If an action does not lead to your goal, you will not get the results by repeating it. Consistent actions mean take appropriate actions consistently so that they will produce results.

For example, if you want to grow a plant. Firstly, you must take an action to plant the seeds. Then, you need to water it every day and make sure that they have the required sunlight to grow. You may also need to add fertilizers into the soil every now and then. It takes a series of different appropriate actions regularly to grow a plant. In other words, consistent actions mean a series of different appropriate actions to produce results.

The idea that I will like to share with you:
Take consistent actions to see results.
