I know a friend who accomplishes all his set goals almost all the time. And I have studied his way of doing things. Do you know what I found out?
He lives by what Simon Bailey calls the consistency cocktail. So what is the consistency cocktail you ask?
I know you’ve had a cocktail drink and you probably like it because of its mix of ingredients.
Interestingly, this is what Simon also means that mastering consistency is a mix of strategies and habits that help us become smart, successful, and skillful in life.
So what are the 3 ways you can use to master consistency in anything?
This first ingredient makes up the largest part of your cocktail. “Walking your walk” (and not just “talking your talk”) describes the little steps you take throughout the day that breathe life into your values. It’s not enough to just say you have values. You actually have to live them out in the small moments that make up your day.
1. Learn to walk the talk all the time.
For example, one of my core values is caring for the least, the last, and the forgotten. This shapes how I talk to people, what projects I accept, and the way I invest my money.”
”Constantly reminding yourself of the meaning, the why behind your actions will allow you to power through even when you’re tired, stressed out or unmotivated.
2. Know your why
I am caring for my health better than I ever have, and it’s because I am more connected to my why: I want to stay fit so I can live for a long time for my children and their children, not because I want to look good in photos. Once you make this mental shift, everything will change.”
3. Embrace a paradigm shift.
”This is the magic ingredient—you just need a pinch of it. Consistency without disruption is simply a routine. Disruption means moving from the status quo to the cutting edge.
I am a huge believer in conducting a self-review every 90 days. That period of time is long enough to ensure you’re not jumping from goal to goal, but it’s regular enough to keep you from getting into a rut.
During your self-review, ask yourself: What have been my major successes in the past three months? How have I moved forward? Am I still moving in the direction I want to go? Is there a better way to do things?
Mixed correctly, this cocktail will allow you to develop confidence and become more purposeful with how you use your time and energy.”
Achieving anything in life is largely about being consistent about our goals, and taking actions towards its accomplishment.
In the beginning of 2019, we all had goals of things we want to do. Some of us have not only veered off the plan but have abandoned it. This will not make anyone successful in life.
September is here already, and I am here to remind you that you should not lose hope on the remaining days of the year, anything can still happen.
I mean millions of people will still breakthrough this year, and you can be one of them.
Remember the mix of consistency cocktail? Learn to walk your talk, identify you’re why, and embrace a new way of thinking.
I wish you success, my friend.
P.S: Do you have questions about how I consistently pursued my goals until I succeed as a property investor and how you can too?
