[MLM Success Tip] Consistency Creates Longevity
Consistency without longevity is only a trial and not a habit. If you are only consistent for a week then you are just testing the waters.
Today I want to talk about the power of adding longevity to your consistency and making whatever you are doing a powerful habit.
I was reading a post the other day and it was all about being consistent in your content delivery. It may start to think about how most people put a limit on their consistency as a trial run.
We want to test the waters and see if what we are doing is really going to work.
What are Consistency and Longevity
Here's what dictionary.com has to say about these two items:
Consistency: steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc.
Longevity: length of service, tenure, etc.; seniority
When you put these two together you have the commitment to do something over a long period of time!
It is said that until you do something consistently for 21 days or more it doesn't become a habit.
I started my blogging journey a few years ago and thought I'd give this blogging thing a TRY. So I wrote some posts for maybe a week or two to see what the results would be.
Needless to say, the results were not impressive at all and, of course, the longevity of my blogging wasn't either.
I expected that after a couple of weeks that things would start to change and I would start getting leads and the popularity of my blog would just skyrocket.
Well, it didn't and the leads weren't coming in.
The Solution to Consistency and Longevity
I love what Ray Higdon says about doing anything. “I will do it until…”
That means until it happens, not until I get tired, not until it's partially complete, not until I'm bored with doing it, UNTIL!
The key to both of these is really COMMITMENT plain and simple. Without the commitment behind your desire to do something, you will NOT be consistent and there will be no longevity to your actions.
Real World Example of being Consistent:
So back in January of this year, 2015, I committed to my blogging journey again. This time my commitment was going to be until.
My World Alexa.com score was at over 27 million and my US score was non-existent.
Now six months later I'm just over 500,000 in the world and just over 100,000 in the US. I'm consistently getting 10 to 20 leads a day and I'm finally making sales.
Along this journey of blogging, I also went through a couple of blogging courses and I'm constantly tweaking and refining my blog and what I'm doing.
The most important thing though is I'm committed to this journey UNTIL!
Remember that being consistent without the commitment to create the longevity you need to make it happen is just testing the waters and your results will not be what you want them to be.
So commit this week to something that you know is going to change your business, whether that is blogging, prospecting, personal growth or whatever.
Just commit yourself to be consistent UNTIL and create the longevity that you need to become the success you deserve!
