It’s so simple.
Really, the secret of success is so simple it’s almost a joke… except well, instead of laughing, you’ll be like ughh damnit… kind of like a *cruel*joke.
Do you know the feeling of knowing better and not acting? Ok great, you’re just like me. Imagine having that feeling then one day, poetic justice strikes and you’re finally forced to acknowledge what you ignored.
Yeah.. that’s what realizing the “Secret” to success was like for me.
Nothing like a good, palm-on-head, grind-the-teeth moment to help suppress thoughts and keep dentists in business.
I remember growing up and wondering what makes people so successful?
I would watch movies, read magazines and see these successful people on their fancy yachts living *seeming* perfect lives and I thought damn… what are they doing that I’m not?
I wanted to be a successful person, I wanted to make a difference in my life, so I dove in the rabbit hole and tugged the loose thread that tore the fabric of truth. Side note, I did not see wonderland.
And when I found the truth.. it was basic and kind of a letdown…
Kind of Like a piñata filled with carrot sticks instead of candy…. Imagine the disappointment.
But like all good truths, the message never needed to be hyped up, it just needs to be understood.
That said, the secret to success is this: Consistency.
Being consistent in taking action towards your goals is the absolute secret of secret of success… let that sink in.
Sure… setting goals, being positive, working hard… they’re great, they do help and Hell, that’s the type of post that radical housewives will like (Maybe even share?!) … but taking consistent action is what moves the needle.
This is true in nature and in real life.
You don’t get in shape without being consistent in your workouts and your diet. You can’t build a house after only working for one day. You can’t write a book if you don’t consistently work on it. A garden doesn’t grow unless you consistently water and tend to it.
So then why in the Can-I-speak-to-your-manager-lady-at-Walmart-fuck would anyone expect to have success without consistently working towards it?
It simply doesn’t make sense to expect the world and not work towards it.
Rather, it’s making sense of the truth of consistency is what’s actually important.
I think success is simple, if you have a goal and work consistently towards it, you’ll get results one way or the other.
That’s just how the law works… so let it work… by doing the work.
And remember, be patient … it’s on you to water your garden; with consistent work you can reap a consistent harvest.
Happy Quarantine, what do you need to be more consistent with?
