Consistency is a necessary ingredient in success. It’s strange, because most people do not seem to know its true power.
Whenever I start a project there’s that initial excitement that always keeps me going for weeks to sometimes months.
When it wears off things can get rough, that is when you truly want to know you’re doing something you love.
I don’t even want to count the amount of projects I’ve started and given up after the initial steam.
Even when you’re passionate about something, you still have to whip out your discipline to keep going through the dips. When you get through that first valley, the results can sometimes be quite amazing.
How long does it take? That’s a hard question, because there are no set time limits in the universe. You can start a blog about a subject you love, run out of steam after one month – while still loving what you do – and have to just go through the motions for six months before things start picking up.
