Consistently Great

Clarity, Energy, Written Plan, Focus, Massive action, Consistent Results

Anyone can be succesful, if they are clear on their objectives and consistent and persistent  in their efforts. Consistency is where most people fall down.

The habits and tasks needed to live a succesful life are things that anyone can and usually does do. It’s just that the succesful person does them consistently.

It’s not how long it takes, it’s the results produced. The results produced in an hour of focused, committed, high-intentioned activity can be hundreds of times more valuable than the same effort without these ingredients. And there is no obstacle that will not submit to consistent, focused, massive action.

If you want to gain a really remarkable reputation, stay on your toes. Like a professional athlete or a famous rock star, you are only as good as your last game or your last hit. Your fans (or, in most everyday cases, your coworkers or clients) won’t love you unconditionally: they will continue to judge you based on your work and the results and benefits they enjoy from it. Consistent top level performers are in a winning mindset regardless of circumstances, distractions, results or other external factors.

Motivation versus manipulation

 

The following is adapted from Zig Ziglar’s book, Something To Smile About, published by Thomas Nelson.

The word “motivation” is often confused with manipulation.

Motivation occurs when you persuade others to take an action in their own best interests. Things such as people preparing their homework, accepting responsibility for their performance, and finishing their education are the results of motivation.

Manipulation is persuading others to take an action that is primarily for your benefit. Things such as selling an inferior product at an inflated price and working people overtime with no extra pay are examples of manipulation.
Manipulation self-destructs the individual doing the manipulating. Word gets out on manipulators, and people grow less and less likely to respond in a positive manner to their manipulation. Productivity declines. Leadership occurs when you persuade a person to take an action that is in your mutual best interests.
Comparing motivation to manipulation is like comparing kindness to deceit. The difference is the intent of the person. Motivation will cause people to act out of free choice and desire, while manipulation often results in forced compliance. One is ethical and long lasting; the other is unethical and temporary.
Leaders and motivators are winners; manipulators are losers who produce resentment and discord. Become a motivator, lead your people, and don’t manipulate them.
