How To Become Consistent – My Top Tool After Working with Clients for a Decade

by | Jun 15, 2023 | Blog

You know what to do but you just aren’t doing it. Or, maybe you’re doing it sometimes, but it seems impossible to get consistent. Your schedule gets thrown for a loop, you have to work late, the kids are sick, you’re in a bad mood, it’s a holiday, vacation or special event…the reasons are endless and you just have no idea how you can possibly stay consistent.

It sounds great though, doesn’t it? Even if it sounds unlikely, out of reach or even impossible, it sounds heavenly.

What would life be like if you didn’t constantly feel bombarded by temptation?

Or if you weren’t always faced with something that makes execution so darn hard?

What would your results be like if you were actually consistent for several months instead of several days (or at best, weeks)?

One of the biggest issues with inconsistency is the way it can erode our confidence and belief in ourselves.

So many times you’ve thought “this” was “it”. This was the thing you were going to stick with. But it wasn’t.

You got so fed up with your past patterns and really believed you wouldn’t return to them, but you did.

For decades, I thought that another plan or process held the key the prior ones hadn’t. If I just tried this new thing, I’d be able to stick with it. Most of the clients I meet feel something similar. Here’s the thing though: whether we’re talking about consistent habits for weight loss, consistent habits for fitness, consistent habits for getting out of debt, building a business, maintaining your home or anything else, the plan doesn’t matter if you keep talking yourself out of it.

There are countless ways to lose weight and countless ways to create financial flexibility, build a business and maintain your home. The majority of the things you’ve tried would have worked if you hadn’t kept talking yourself out of consistency. 

Too many people are jumping from one plan to the next, without recognizing that consistency is a skill we need to build and it begins with how we think.

Consistency requires that we overcome our all-or-nothing patterns of thought.

Consistency requires that we develop honest responses to apathetic thoughts like “I don’t even care”, “this one thing won’t hurt” and “what’s the point?”

Consistency requires that we upgrade our mindset so we don’t continue to sell ourselves the story that we’ll start tomorrow or that some future date holds promise and follow through that today doesn’t.

I’m telling you – when you upgrade your mindset, you no longer fall prey to the 1,000 ways you’ve been talking yourself out of the work required to make progress toward your goals.

With an upgraded mindset, you won’t continue to tell yourself that you’re too stressed to eat healthy.

With an upgraded mindset, you won’t fall for the line that you’re too busy to take care of your body.

With an upgraded mindset, you’re not the kind of person who puts all the less important tasks before the most important ones.

That’s why I created The Consistency Course.

It’s not that people don’t know how to create a budget. They just aren’t holding themselves accountable to sticking to it. They make excuses and accept them.

It’s not that people don’t know that overeating won’t help them lose weight. They just lack the skills and the practice of overcoming their tried and true excuses.

It’s not that people don’t know they should workout. They just need the tools to become someone who looks for what they can do instead of focusing on what they can’t do.

People need tools for managing feeling of overwhelm. They need skills that will help them quickly hone in on what they can’t do instead of being distracted by what they don’t yet feel ready to take on.

  • Within The Consistency Course, we start with a straight forward intake form. No one person’s journey is the same as another’s so you take a few minutes to tell me about your goals, your most common excuses and the new patterns you want to establish.
  • Instead of leaving you to sort through all the options you have for getting started, I recommend a singular, specific starting point that is personalized to your journey and your goals.
  • I plug you into our private Facebook group where all our tools and resources live. There are coaching audio clips on everything from all-or-nothing mindset to travel, eating out, spouses who aren’t supportive, work stress, dieting mentality, fear of missing out and pretty much everything you can imagine.
  • There are problem solving worksheets, replays of our past coaching calls, trainings on how to be less general and more specific, how to deal with periods of low motivation and more.
  • I go live with the group members regularly to answer all questions and provide real-time coaching for whatever you’re working through.
  • I also add tools and resources every single week so you have what you need for your journey to consistency.
  • One of my favorite tools is The Consistency Calendar! When you get started, I mail you a physical calendar that is an incredible visual representation of your consistency in the areas that matter most to you!
  • Most importantly, I’m incredible accessible and responsive. If you’re having a hard time, I want to know about it and I want to support you through it. I want to point you to tools in the group that exist to help, and if there aren’t tools, I’m going to create them and add them.

Best of all, your access to The Consistency Course does not expire! There’s no rush to work your way through the material. It’s there as long as you want or need it!
