Day #009: Persistent And Consistent

We are really competing against ourselves. We have no control over how other people perform. – Pete Cashmore

Just how serious are you about getting yourself where you want to be. Are you serious enough to put in the time? The hard work? The pain? The sacrifice?

If you’re not willing to be persistent, how will you expect to get what you want. If you’re not willing to be consistent, how can you expect to see results?
We are only nine days in to the year and you need to be asking yourself how focused, how diligent and determined are you? Are you on point? Are you sticking to your resolutions? Your goals?

It is time to take a reality check. Nine days in and if you’re not making the time or the effort then you’re not going to make the cut. Seems tough? Well you need to be tough. You are your own worst enemy, so you need to think better than before, otherwise you will fall into your old ways. Make the effort – get out there and make some progress. It does not need to be perfection, just progress. 

You need to start thinking BIG.

Think BIG, act BIGGER – Sergi Trivino 

How can you start to think bigger and act bigger?

1. Get comfortable with the “You” factor
You must dare to see yourself in the biggest situations and achieving the biggest goals. If the “you” factor is missing or blurry, the equation is not going to work. What can you see you achieving? Don’t underestimate yourself. 

2. Think bigger
If the thought doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable, then you are not thinking big enough. Thinking big, means things will challenge you. 

You have to push your thought muscles further.

They work like any other muscles. If they get used to performing at a comfortable, average level, they tend to stay static. The more you push them, the more you use them, the more your thinking can grow and soon enough into a routine state of mind. But you have to keep pushing, otherwise you will get stuck and lose your drive and inspiration. The beautiful thing is to keep pushing perpetually, and verify for yourself that there are no limits.

3. Take immediate action
The thought must be followed by immediate action. Thinking or having thoughts about to doing great things is all good when said, but actions will speak louder than words or thoughts in this case.  Otherwise you have the possibility of the idea going rotten inside your mind and all drive or motivation disintegrates.

There is no someday, there is now or never.
