“With persistence, a drop of water hollows out the stone,” so goes an ancient Greek proverb. Imagine that. A tiny drop of water conquers a mighty rock, not because of its elephantine strength but because of its consistency.
That unwavering drop of water epitomizes the power of consistency. Consistency means that you keep doing it. And doing it. And doing it. If you keep doing it, you will triumph mightily. So pick anything that you wish to achieve in life, then just keep doing it and you will achieve it.
Do you want to build that dream house? Picture it vividly, then keep taking little steps that will translate that vision into reality. Save 100 shillings ($1) every day. Then at the end of the month buy that 3000 shillings ($30) chandelier that you have envisioned for your bedroom in the dream house. Of course you can’t just limit yourself to this $1 daily saving because it would take you several lifetimes to complete that house. The consistency of saving that $1 will inspire in you additional strategies for raising revenue for that house. When you take consistent steps towards your destination, new sights will keep emerging from the horizon.
It doesn’t matter how big your goal is. What matters is the bigness of your consistency in actualizing that goal.
May the beautiful breeze of consistency inspire you to conquer new horizons in the journey of your life.
