Consistency is Key

I am sure you have all heard the term ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ – Amongst its Medival French context, the saying ultimately delivers a very important message, that hard work and consistency over a considerable amount of time delivers results.

In today’s era, we have become accustomed to things happening instantaneously, at least partially, due to the introduction of web applications that make every part of our lives easier and more convenient. No matter what you want to do or achieve, there is likely an article, app or piece of equipment that can supercharge your ability to get it done. This has contributed to a culture which is based on tasks being easy to accomplish, faster than ever before.

With all this being said, think of someone who has achieved true greatness in their field and then look into their journey in detail. I could say with almost complete certainty that their path was riddled with challenges, trials and tribulations along with taking an extensive amongst of time to achieve true success. You will also likely see consistency and determination in their approach that makes it no surprise that they have been able to achieve great feats in their career.

I like to reference Floyd Mayweather, even though he appears to split public opinion due to his confidence, if you actually assess his journey to becoming a global superstar there are some insightful points of reference:

  • Turned Professional in 1996
  • Known to train consistently 3+ times per day while training for a fight
  • Motto =¬† ‘Hard work, dedication’

There are no secrets here, work hard over an extensive period of time and realising your dreams will become within your grasp.
