Moral of the Month: Consistency
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
If diligence is the virtue of earnestness and persistence, then consistency is its silent and steadfast sibling. This is because consistency involves routine efforts that excel us towards achieving our goals. It is the committed adherence to the same principles or practices over time that brings us success.
Consistency is quiet and unpretentious. After all, following small, productive steps day after day may, on the surface, seem inconsequential or tedious. But it is this modest, yet faithful practice that makes consistency overlooked as the essential value that it is and enables it to outperform more romanticized attributes, like luck and talent, to bring true progress.
“If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.”
Consistency pushes us to be in the present while propelling us, little by little, toward our future, and improved self. A consistent individual is one who is said to also be reliable, trustworthy, focused, successful and/or disciplined. These are the traits we aspire to have for ourselves and our youth.
At home, parents can see what consistency brings into their children’s lives. From bedtime routines and cleanup rituals to unwavering curfews or technology rules, consistency in parenting removes uncertainties. The trust they have in knowing what is expected brings children the safety and confidence needed to make better choices in their lives. They will learn, internalize and repeat good habits over time.
