I’ve closed a big deal recently and felt pretty good about myself. It’s the biggest deal in my career so far in real estate, and I’m thankful for God’s provision.
Yet my business mentor said something that stuck with me for a while. He said that it’s not enough to close a big deal, you have to be consistent. A producer is consistently producing. Not just once, or twice, but consistently.
As I was thinking about it, it’s so obvious that I thought about other areas in life where consistency is also important. Consider this:
- A football team that wins one game are not successful. You have to win consistently to be considered a champion.
- It’s not enough to have spent 1 hour in quiet time in the Word. Consistency in keeping a daily quiet time makes it a habit and discipline.
- So, you’ve kept your diet and haven’t had unhealthy meals this whole week. But the next week, you’re back to your usual diet of junk food. Are you a healthy person? No, unless you consistently eat healthily.
These are just 3 areas of life – vocationally, spiritually and physically – that show us the importance of consistency.
Consistency forms habits. Good habits are one of the keys to an intentional life.
So, what areas in your life do you need to be more consistent?
