There’s a level of consistency we as individuals are expected to maintain. Its that level that multiplies our progress over a period of time while maintaining our identity. Before you jump into quick conclusions I’m not saying adjusting or changing your identity is not good, but if your pace in the game is not deteriorating, why change the tactics?
The main issue has to deal with complacency. There’s the feeling of “I’m on top of my game, I can afford to take my foot off the gas just a little bit”. That little bit can wreck havoc for all the good work you may have built or are building over a long haul. We need not forget that life has many game changers.
Some of these changers will break us, others will make us but the beauty of this ever fascinating life of ours is the unpredictability it brings to the table. How many times have you anticipated a situation to fall in a certain pattern and just like a goalie, been wrong footed? Several times I’m sure and though you may not want to admit it, reality is we allow ourselves to be ridden easily by these events.
The name of the game is momentum, and it is only by consistency that we can gain and keep momentum. It doesn’t matter how close we are or how far back we are, fact of the matter is, we can’t relax or give in now. To many of us, this is still the 1st quarter of life. There are 3 quarters left but bear in mind that the game can change @ any point within those quarters.
In the end, our success or failure will depend on how lackluster or sharp we are. The power is in your hands. If you want the game, don’t just play it, own it. Possess, Dominate and Control (PDC)
