Life is a journey that requires consistency. I have not seen anyone who achieved their dreams without staying at it for a long time. This reminds me of a movie I once saw. The woman had to walk away from the marriage relationship because her man never kept one job for a long time. He always found a reason not to stay at his job. Every time, he came home with one excuse or the other why he had to quit every job he got.
His inconsistency placed the family’s financial burden on her. She got tired and walked away from the relationship after several attempts to get new jobs for him and to make him stay on them. You see, this same guy exhibited such lazy tendencies even while they were dating. He didn’t want to do anything. As is often the case, she thought he would improve. But it got worse when they got married.
One way to measure a person’s commitment to a thing, is to look at their consistency to those things that matter in life. There is a problem when they have tried fifteen different businesses without making any tangible progress with any. You should think twice when you find that they dated 20 people within the space of two years. There is an issue when they hop from one church to the other and still can’t find one to commit to.
Some of these traits of inconsistency display a general lack of commitment. Such people walk away at the slightest sniff of challenges. If they cannot be committed to their dreams, jobs, God, past relationships, etc, trust me they won’t be committed to and consistent with you. Inconsistent people do not have strong reasons to stay at things. They lack staying power. Do not allow love blind you to someone’s inconsistent attitudes. I’m sure you don’t want to wake up one day to find out your spouse is bailing out on you and your kids. Think about this. How was your day?
You are the next big thing. Make it happen!
