Do the Right Things Long Enough – Consistently

One of my favorite mindset quotes or sayings that I’ve heard time and time again is “Do the Right Things Long Enough – Consistently”.

The definition of the word consistently means steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc.

Yah yah, lots of big words I know.

What this boils down to in your business is THIS:

Business is a long term planning process and not a get rich quick plan.

When you work your business CONSISTENTLY — meaning on a regular basis you’ll get somewhere.

After being consistent you have to do THE RIGHT THINGS – meaning revenue producing activitites

After being consistent and doing the right things, you have to do them LONG ENOUGH – meaning don’t quit when it doesn’t work in 30, 60 or 90 days.

And I’m going to let you in on a little secret…this applies to LIFE too!

Whether you’re learning a new hobby, working on losing weight or even working in your business when you do the right things, long enough, consistently, you will lead yourself to success.

What happens when you feel you can’t do this alone? This is when you ask for help from a coach or a mentor.

I wrote a post on WHY you want to hire a coach HERE

My questions to you today…Are you doing the right things? Have you been consistent with them? 

If not, there’s always time to start getting on track today. You know what you have to do.

Figure out what you need next or how to get the help you desire to get you there. Your heart will tell you.

Well said, VaNessa…it’s the “magic” combination of
the right things AND consistency that bring results.

Great post!!!

Working on “consistently righting” my Attraction Marketing technique, thanks to outstanding mentors and supportive teammates like YOU!! Appreciate all you do and also want to say the uniqueness of your name spelling rocks 🙂 With an unusual spelling of my own, I tend to notice these things. Is that your own invention or did your creative parents come up with it for you?

Cheers, Penne (pronounced like the coin or the pasta 😉

    Hey Penne…Yes, my capital N was my own invention at 16. My father to this day tells me that he didn’t “name me that way”. Always makes me laugh! V-

      Sweet! My dad probably didn’t have much to do with my name/spelling — Mom and my big sis cooked that up (snagged from Miss Mississippi Hospitality 1961, long before the pasta got popular 😉 )

      Something else came to mind while skimming back through your article today:

      -=- Wallace Wattles, in his famous book – “Science of Getting Rich” (which inspired Rhonda Byrne to create “The Secret) says that – /You do not get rich by doing certain things; you get rich by doing things in a certain way./ This certain way is nothing but – By Law. If you live your life in accordance with the Laws of the Universe, you will certainly attract permanent riches in your life. -=-

      Right is Right, as long as it’s in accordance with Divine Law!! 🙂

Hello VaNessa, You’re exactly correct. I like your point that being consistent is not enough. You must complete the right activities. Keep moving forward and your continued success is certain.
