Cultivating Consistency

A common challenge we are faced with is consistency.

We struggle to be consistent with our workout routine, or our nutrition protocols, or staying on track during the weekends or social events, or having that AM/PM routine, or stretching habits… I could go on, but I’ll spare us.

Sometimes we struggle with consistency not just because we don't understand something, but also because we don't understand what it is not. Cultivating consistency is possible for anyone, once there's an understanding around it.

Let's break down what consistency is not:

  1. Consistency is not about being perfect. It's about embracing imperfections and recognizing that growth takes time.

  2. It's not about quantity. It’s not about how much you do, but about how well you do it.

  3. It's not about immediate success. Consistency requires patience, perseverance, and a long-term commitment to getting better. It’s the long game that gives us the win!

  4. It's not about comparing yourself to others. Everyone has their own unique journey, and the focus should be on personal growth and self-development.

  5. It's not about avoiding challenges. Consistency doesn't mean it will always be easy; you will very likely face self-doubt multiple time, but consistent practice (and communication)! will help you overcome these obstacles.

  6. It's not about following strict rules. While structure and technique are important, it also involves exploring and finding your best flow or variations.

  7. It's not an obligation. Consistency should be seen as an opportunity for fulfilling and rewarding self-expression, not as a burdensome chore.

  8. It's not about always feeling motivated, excited or inspired. There will be days when inspiration feels elusive, but by consistently showing up, you create an environment that invites enjoyment to flow more naturally.

  9. It's not a straight path of continuous improvement. Developing habits and transforming yourself has its ups and downs, but being disciplined allows you to learn from mistakes and adapt along the way.

  10. It's not about suffering. Consistency should be enjoyable and fulfilling, where you celebrate small and big wins and nurture your love for what you do.

So what is consistency really about?

  1. Setting standards and committing to showing up.

  2. Making it a priority and managing your time.

  3. Creating routines and consistently doing the work.

  4. Embracing who you are becoming and not expecting perfection from the start.

  5. Proving to yourself that you can start and finish a task.

  6. Transcending yourself and pushing towards a higher version of yourself.

By understanding what consistency is not and focusing on what it truly means, you can overcome limitations and achieve your goals. Remember, consistency is a journey, and by sticking to it, you can – and will – become the best version of yourself.
