"Ordinary things practiced consistently create extraordinary results."
They say a "picture is worth a thousand words"...
And while that may be true, the truth is a thousand words ain't worth sh*t unless backed up by focused action.
Because action is the only thing that truly adds value (and meaning) to our lives.
One of my favorite quotes is from Keith Cunningham. He says, "ordinary things practiced consistently create extraordinary results."
Translation: focus on the ordinary, boring fundamentals every day.
Translation: consistency is a superpower.
Translation: get off your ass and get to work.
The only thing that separates any of us from the goals and dreams we have is the actions we take (or don't take).
Want an extraordinary marriage?
... daily consistent action on your marriage.
Wanna be in extraordinary shape?
... daily consistent action on your fitness.
Wanna make a sh*t load of money?
... daily consistent action on becoming more valuable.
Whatever it is that you want to have or experience, it all comes down to your ability to take consistent action over time.
Our brother Kyle (pictured above) summed it up perfectly when he posted this picture and said...
"Some disagree, but those are the ones that just don’t add up or follow through. Been applying this rule to every facet of my life and it’s made all the difference." - Kyle Swenson
Now I know what some of you might be thinking...
"This sounds great but I have no idea where to start."
"I don't know what to do..."
If this is you, what you're saying is, you don't have a strategy to create the outcome you want.
You're not sure what actions to take...
And that's an amazing place to be because it means your first step is to create / find / learn the strategy you need for the outcome you want.
Here's the formula...
1. Learn the strategy you need for the result you want.
2. Execute the strategy.
3. Rinse and repeated until the desired end result.
It might sound simple, and it is. But don't confuse simple with easy.
It's one of the hardest things we will ever do, but the rewards are extraordinary.
Have an amazing week, and let us know if you need anything.
Live Brave. Live Bold. Live Bearded.
