In the journey of life, consistency acts as the driving force that propels us towards our goals and dreams. It bridges the gap between mere potential and remarkable achievements. As the famous proverb goes, “Consistency is the key to success.”

Let us delve into the realm of consistency and discover how it can unlock the doors to extraordinary accomplishment

Success and achievements hold unique meanings for every individual. Allow me to share what they signify to me.

In my 60s, I wear many hats — a yoga teacher, part-time secretary, nanna, wife, and mother. I understand the immense significance of consistency in every aspect of life, particularly when it comes to taking care of oneself. This consistency allows me to show up for others who rely on me and, equally importantly, for my own well-being.

With unwavering dedication, I begin my day at 6 am. As I slip into my yoga gear, I enter the serenity of my spare room, ready for “My Morning Routine.” This hallowed ritual encompasses various elements that contribute to my overall health and vitality.

Firstly, I devote 10–15 minutes to yoga, embracing its gentle movements and calming breaths, nurturing my mind and body. Following this, I engage in a series of toning stretches, all in pursuit of a lean and flat stomach — a personal aspiration I hold dear.

Next, I dedicate a brief session to weights, approximately 15 minutes in duration, as I understand the importance of building strength and maintaining muscle health.

To ensure I keep track of my progress and emotions, I diligently fill in my journal, capturing my thoughts and experiences. This practice provides valuable introspection and serves as a reminder of my growth and journey.

Finally, I conclude this harmonious hour with peaceful meditation, allowing my mind to settle and find solace. In this stillness, I cultivate a sense of inner calm and balance, which resonates throughout the day.

By adhering to this morning routine, consistently and with love, I nurture not only my physical well-being but also my emotional and spiritual self. This encompassing practice empowers me to be present and available for those who depend on me, fulfilling my roles as a supportive nanna, wife, mother, and dedicated yoga teacher.

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” — Robert Collier

#1 Just like water can carve through rocks through its persistent flow, consistent efforts pave the way for triumph. Every small step taken with dedication and regularity accumulates into significant progress. By embracing consistency, we break down monumental tasks into manageable actions, ensuring that each day brings us closer to our aspirations.

“Consistency is what transforms average into excellence.” — Tony Robbins

#2 Imagine an artist who sporadically dabbles with a paintbrush versus one who diligently practices every day. The consistent artist hones their skills, evolving from mediocrity to mastery. Similarly, in any field of endeavour, consistent practice refines our abilities, sharpens our talents, and propels us to reach new heights of excellence.

“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.” — Tony Robbins

#3 Comparable to a healthy lifestyle, where a single day of exercise or a healthy meal won’t transform our well-being, sporadic bursts of effort won’t lead to lasting achievements. Instead, it is the consistent implementation of positive habits that molds our lives. By staying true to our goals and pursuing them consistently, we create a lasting impact that shapes our future.

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” — R. Collier

#4 Consider the story of the tortoise and the hare. While the hare had bursts of exceptional speed, it was the steady and persistent pace of the tortoise that won the race. Consistency is like the tortoise — it may not seem flashy, but it ensures a steady progression towards victory. By maintaining a consistent pace, we build resilience, tenacity, and the ability to weather challenges along the way.

“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” — Mike Murdock

# 5 Our daily routines shape the trajectory of our lives. The habits we cultivate and the actions we repeat consistently determine our outcomes. Just as a drop of water, falling consistently on the same spot, can erode a rock, our consistent daily actions carve our path towards success. It is by choosing habits that align with our aspirations and practicing them consistently that we unleash our true potential.


Consistency is the magic ingredient that transforms dreams into reality. It propels us towards our goals, refines our skills, and shapes our lives. By embracing the power of consistency, we can harness our true potential, achieve remarkable feats, and leave a lasting impact. Let us remember the words of Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Embrace consistency, and the world will witness the extraordinary achievements you are capable of.

In embracing the power of consistency, I honour the importance of self-care, understanding that by nourishing myself, I am better equipped to give to others. It is through these daily rituals, carried out with dedication and consistency, that I lay the foundation for a fulfilling and purposeful life.
