A lot of people want to achieve success, but only few people attain it. Marami kasing taong nag-uumpisa, pero iilan lamang ang nakakatapos. In other words, panay START walang FINISH.

The reason behind this is because some people lack CONSISTENCY. What do I mean?

Some people want to be consistent na maaga pumasok sa work, maging consistent sa pag-eexercise, maging consistent sa pag-spend ng time sa family, at kung anu-ano pa na mga bagay.

Madalas ang mga ganitong bagay ay naiisip mo as your New Year’s Resolution. Pero hindi pa natatapos ang unang buwan ng taon, balik ka na naman sa nakasanayan at nalimutan na ang resolution.

For you to be consistent, you really need to … PREPARE FOR CONSISTENCY

Kung bigla mo lang kasi maisipan maging consistent at gagawin mo agad ito without being prepared, hindi buo ang loob mo noong ikaw ay nag-decide, dahil malamang nadala ka lang sa emosyon mo.

At ang ating emotions ay CONSTANTLY CHANGING, kaya dapat hindi lang basta na feel mo lang maging consistent, you have to DESIRE to be consistent.

In preparing to be consistent, you have to SET YOUR MIND sa kung anong changes ang mangyayari sa buhay mo.

You need to be FIRM with your DECISION to be consistent before you start your journey.

At kapag ready ka na, it’s time for you to … ESTABLISH CONSISTENCY

During the first day ng iyong pagiging consistent, huwag kang magmamadali at huwag mo naman UBUSIN ang lahat ng energy mo.

Take it ONE STEP at a time. Remember, your goal is to be consistent.

It’s not about how much you have accomplished in A DAY. It’s about being able to do it REGULARLY.

Be REALISTIC sa mga plano mong gawin each day para ito ay maging ACHIEVABLE.

Hinay-hinay lang dahil it will eventually become your HABIT.

It’s also important for you to … SUSTAIN THE CONSISTENCY

Madalas, kaya hindi na me-maintain ang pagiging consistent ay dahil sa nararanasan na FAILURE.

Pero you have to remember that perfection and consistency are two DIFFERENT things.

Hindi maiiwasan ang magkamali dahil PARTE yun ng pagiging tao.

It is also a good thing to remember that despite your failure you can CHOOSE TO REMAIN being consistent.

So it’s also appropriate if you have a … BACK-UP PLAN TO CONSISTENCY

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are EXPECTING to fail. Having a back-up plan will HELP you, in case you experience failure.

Marami kasing hindi handa i-handle ang failure kaya hindi nakakamit ang consistency.

You have to realize na once in a while meron talagang mga SETBACKS na dadating. Pero kung may back-up ka, at least, alam mo kung ano ang gagawin mo so you can easily get BACK ON TRACK.

THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.

  • What area in your life do you need to be consistent in?
    Are you prepared to take the journey toward consistency?
    Do you have a back-up plan, just in case you fail?
