Consistency vs Inconsistency
That’s my mindfulness as an observer this week, because if I want change, I have to create an emotionally charged consistent effort of 100%. and then understand the ramifications behind being inconsistent.
I could be inauthentic, lie and tell you I’m mastering the consistent reads per day. But I’m not! I would be lying to myself. I’m horribly inconsistent. I have reduced everything to my index cards and they are with me all day every day. I carry them with me, they sleep next to me, placed on my desk in front of me.
But that means nothing if I’m not doing the reads.
Because consistency of nothing is nothing, and nothing of nothing becomes nothing.
It’s not an issue of time, I have an abundance of time.
I’m celebrating that which I do. What I did or do right. And then I’m asking, what can you improve, Mark?
No lamenting, it’s a toxic addictive habit.
I’ve realized a few things in my thoughts – I’ve become an observer – and discovered, that I have this limited belief that once I understand it, it becomes my reality. The truth is, if it did, my life would be entirely different. So I’m challenging myself even more to do the reads. To be consistent. 100%. The question is, am I challenging myself enough?
It’s so simple, yet…
The ‘do it now’, works with me for everything else but the reads. My chore, ‘homework’, DMP and blog is done. But for the reads…
Am I lazy? Am I the sloth that Mark J and Oggie talk about? What is it with my mind that does not want me to be healthy and wealthy? I am disappointed in myself, and tired of berating myself. How can I start a new life with inconsistency. How do I control this world within?
Create the new habit Mark, you know it! And then celebrate the 100% effort!
I know that I know, – consistent practice will change my world within.
I understand this. I resonate. But I’m not taking action on it. How can I be the hero in my journey if I have everything I need, except the will to do it. Is it that I have lost faith in myself?
If my world within is toxic, my world without is too!
I’m mindful, but mindless. I’m aware but inconsistent.
Is my constant fatigue causing this? Where does this all originate? Of course in my mind. I know this.
Many years ago I did an Iron Man 160km triathlon. I finished in time. I ran many marathons, cycled 100km at a time, won a canoeing race. And got to finish them all. How did I do it? With consistent practice.
So what is it that’s preventing me from being that Iron Man again? The hero in my own life. So then, if I can do that, I can be the hero of this incredible journey.
If I don’t do this properly now, when will I be able to do it over. Life isn’t forever. Am I secretly afraid of being successful and healthy?
What is it Mark?
What do I need to be consistent, other than being consistent? How does a new habit become the norm? Consistent repetition of course. So then?
This blog is a reminder to self, to get going. To change the world within. To be the 100%er.
‘I can be, what I WILL to be’
So then?… WILL it buddy! Will it!
Just do it Mark! How?
You do it, and do it, and do it, and do it, and do it, and do it, and just do it until the job gets done!
And when I’ve done it?
You do it again!
Of course! Just do it! 😀
I was made Great, by Great to be Great!
I’ll celebrate that!
