The Law of Reflection: Learning to pause allows growth to catch up with you.
The Law of Consistency: Motivation gets you going—Discipline keeps you growing.
“The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness, is consistency.” Jim Tressel
Of the first 5 laws of growth we have reviewed together, the Law of Consistency is the most difficult for me. What about you?
Dr John C. Maxwell shares this wisdom and reveals a secret about how we can be more consistent. He says, “It’s difficult to remain engaged in anything if you have not found a way to value and appreciate the process. Make a list of everything you like about personal growth. If your list is very short, really work at it. Anything you can find as motivation will help you to develop better growth habits.” The wisdom is having a process. The secret is found in the first law which is the Law of Intentionality.
Share with us some examples where you find yourself doing something consistently. Share also one thing that you know you need to do consistently, but you struggle to remain consistent. What would be the payoff if you were able to do that task on a consistent basis?
