Two years ago today I published my first “Conscious Writing for Creative Living” blog.
Now, with over 100 posts written and in recognition of a notable milestone reached, I’m inspired to share another aspect of what I’ve learnt along the way – the value of consistency.
Showing up regularly has taught me a great deal about myself, the authenticity of my voice and the impact of my message as I’ve engaged with readers both on and off the blog.
Stretch, Challenge and Reward
Writing weekly blogs has certainly stretched and challenged me at every level.
Ultimately, however, it is deeply rewarding as a way of following through on my core purpose to write, live and lead as consciously, creatively and authentically as I can; and to guide others to be and do the same.
Consistency is one of the defining factors between failure and success – however you define what those terms mean for you.
So here are 7 reasons that I hope will inspire you to be creatively consistent in order to experience the cumulative rewards yourself.
- Is essential for completing any substantial project like writing a book, creating a course, running a retreat, developing a coaching programme or building a business.*
- Trains your unconscious mind to support your conscious intention to show up regularly to take the actions you need to take and enjoy the rhythm of doing so.*
- Opens the way for you to access deeper insights and ideas, especially when combined with a conscious approach that includes aligning body, mind and soul.*
- Means you make a decision once about something you’re prepared to commit to instead of wasting energy repeatedly wondering if you’ll show up today – or not as the case may be!*
- Teaches you about your craft through direct, personal experience in a way that you’ll never be able to learn from just thinking, reading or studying.*
- Establishes a welcome sense of certainty and leads to developing trust and credibility which lie at the heart of strong relationships with others.*
- Facilitates the process for you to be and do what you’re here to be and do which enables you to realize your full potential both personally and professionally.
Adopting a conscious approach to creative consistency eventually leads to mastery. As Tony Robbins once said, “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, it’s what we do consistently.”
