The Dynamics of Consistency

Over the years, I have given a careful study on why some people do not succeed or what makes them fail to achieve their desired goals. As much as I could not find more relevant answers, but what I discovered from my toolbox were: impatience, ignorance, lack of exposure. You know that the extent in which we can go depends on the amount of information we have, likewise, exposure is a befriending eye opener life requires. I observe that there are people who have for one reason or the other decided to be alone, be themselves, coupled with a lifestyle of getting easy provocation, not giving ears to what others are saying about them, whether good or bad, they feel they are uniquely made, as a result they do not need relationship. Well, that might be right to some extent. However, you need to look and see how far that person can go in life. Life in its entire making is dynamic and we must follow the trend. l have come to realize that no matter how small salt is, it is very important in the body chemistry. One needs to hang around somebody in order to be connected to another height or level.

In the same way patience is a high ingredient of life. “Patience is a person’s ability to wait for something out or endure something tedious, without getting riled up, complaining” Patience is an incubator and always hosts treasures for hope, while hope produces reality for life. Consistency is a lubricant and an oil that generates power. A story was shared about a wicked king who never listened to anybody nor received advice from anyone. There was a poor Widow in his kingdom who had debtors to settle and no one to help her out. She decided to run to the king for assistance, irrespective of his autocracy. She kept repeating the palace often shamelessly. One day, the king gave himself an advice and said, “though I do not listen to nor take advice from people but the constant visit of this poor Widow to my palace is wearying me down, can’t l solve her problem so as to let me be? l will do something for her before it is too late. An example of patience is someone standing peacefully in a very long line. Here are few things that make consistency dynamic:

Social consistency: It is a little bit hard to find people with ability to bear one another in the social context of life, reason being that people believe in the theory of first impression. However, there are some who do not know how to package themselves at the first instance, but as time progresses, we discover good things in them that can shape our lives better, only that they need a little more time from us to realize that beauty in them.

Health reasons, one’s ability to slow down from reaction has a natural healing force to the body. Most cases of heart attacks, sudden death, blood pressures arise as a result of not adjusting to issues, inability to resist challenging circumstances. It is a dead fact that nature has made those things to be and they need to happen and our reaction cannot change them, In addition, there is nothing new under the planet.

Goal achieving: “He who endures unto the end the same shall be saved”. Also, “a quitter never wins and a winner never quits”. There is a ransomed reward that awaits for a consistent performer. Move forward until you achieve your goal because your goal is your gift.

Transformation reasons: Everybody by nature, has the ability to generate transformation. You can do it too because it is in you. People need changes and that cannot happen on the corridor of indecision, anger, easy provocation. It takes enough of tolerance and consistency to transform and change things. One good truth about you is that you are a catalyst for a change. You can’t afford to forget this, you need to revive the spirit of consistency in you before it is late.

Think Before Criticising Others

Everyone desires success in life. Some earn it by working hard while many people derive by pulling down others through criticism and wicked methods. Most of us grow impatient and rude when things are not moving as per our wish and plan. That culminates in chiding and blaming others though the real reason remains elsewhere. Think a while about the consequences if the other person also gets reactive. Both will clash in a duel ending up in bitter expressions and emotions: Ultimately, spoiling the otherwise cordial relationship. Especially, when the criticism emerges from an inexperienced and undisciplined person, it wrecks havoc on the person who is well experienced and more disciplined. Such incidents are regular in an office. The main reason behind such behavior is that we want others to be perfect though lacking in ourselves. Majority of us feel happy to point out the mistakes of others, but fail to notice what we do.

Misbehavior on one occasion cannot make a person bad. Many of the crimes are borne out of circumstances. A wrong conviction makes a person repeat the crimes. That’s why a Court of law gives sufficient time to the accused to prove the truth and circumstances of the crime before pronouncing the judgment, but not based on the circumstances alone.

Two types of criticism are commonly found in our life. Anything that evokes a favorable response from the criticised person is termed as Constructive or positive criticism. When the driver of a car jumps the traffic signal, a gentle owner would causally rebuke, “I know you are a good driver but the traffic signal doesn’t.” If any criticism affects a person resulting in adverse reactions, then it is called as Destructive or negative criticism. A school teacher condemned one student for not paying the fees. The latter committed suicide leaving a note of anguish over the incident.

Criticism for even silly reasons is a sadist approach. That actually earns disrespect and humiliation from others. We can criticise others only when it is essential and that too, in a polite manner not to affect their self-esteem. Denunciation before others makes a person feel embarrassed and ashamed. Remember, the same situation will also come to us.

Nonetheless, a person admitting own mistakes will always succeed in life as he uses any criticism as a stepping stone for his progress. He lives happily also without the burden of carry-over and repenting in the future for his mistakes. So, Think twice before accusing or scolding others. The renowned American author Dale Carnegie said, “Any fool can criticise, condemn, and complain, but it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”
