A couple of Sundays ago, I mentioned that I’ll participating in a 30 day photo challenge for the month of September. I’ve been running behind on this but I like that it has challenged me to take more pictures and to update my instagram a lot more than I usually do.
Here is my Insta – Recap:

Today’s Motivational Monday’s Word is Consistency:
“To become an expert in a field of study, it merely takes 10,000 hour of focus and practice on the topic at hand.”
- The 10,000 hour rule, Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: The Story of Success
Someone once told me that it takes 3 months of consistently doing something on a regular basis before you can turn it into a habit.
Another told me that it takes a decade of working on something before you become an expert, otherwise known as the 10,000 hour rule.
It’s not the little things that we do once in a while that change our life, it’s those we do diligently on a regular basis that eventually not only change our life but could determine our destiny.
I must admit, I have a problem with consistency, it’s boring and mundane. I’m one of those who often wants to try something new. Routine bores me.
In a way it’s a blessing but it’s also a curse. Being able to keep things fresh and interesting is a blessing. But in a way this hinders me from staying focused and consistent on long term goals.
It’s also pretty easy to stay consistent on those days when everything seems to be going my way…not so much when I’m having a bad day or things don’t go as planned.
One thing I’ve learnt about people who are able to stay consistent, is they keep things simple. Breaking down tasks over time makes them achievable and gives you a sense of accomplishment, which in return gives you the will to keep on going.
How do you maintain consistency in order to achieve your Goals?
Happy Monday & have a great week ahead,
Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,
Much Love & Stay blessed,
