The Power of Consistency – Transcript
Hello, Radiant One and welcome to today’s episode in which I am going to be talking about and sharing one of the most powerful tools that we have in our toolbox as soul-driven, spiritual, heart-based entrepreneurs and that is consistency.
I often laugh when I receive an e-mail or in a session one of my clients tells me how mind-blown they are by the power of consistency once they’ve gotten into their rhythm the way that they want to be working in their businesses, the way they want to be showing up in their businesses, and begin to see the results of that.
Because at first, they may – they trust me so of course they listen to what I say and they listen within and then they follow my guidance. That’s why they’re in my business, of course, or in my sessions.
However, like I said, I very often have a big smile on my face or laugh when they come back and they’re just mind-blown by how this actually works. Because it’s such a simple thing.
Easy and effective
Consistency is such a very, very easy, simple thing to implement but the effects of it, the results of it, can be so powerful and so big that like I said is oftentimes mind-blowing. And I know that because it was for me as well.
So maybe I should start by saying – telling you what I mean by consistency because it can be a lot of different things. If you’re a spiritual, soul-driven, heart-based entrepreneur within the online marketing world, I’m sure that you’ve heard that consistency is key. You’ve heard that there is power in showing up.
Apply it where needed
But consistency can actually apply to many, many different things in your business. First of all, of course the obvious one is showing up on a weekly basis whether it be in a newsletter, whether it be in a podcast or a YouTube show. And I said weekly but weekly is my rhythm.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s your rhythm.
It can be showing up on a monthly basis or it can be bi-weekly or you have a different schedule.
Find your own rhythm
Whenever I work with a client, we find the rhythm of consistency that works for them and that was in the newsletter in the external form. Of course, there’s also then social media.
If you have an Instagram account, Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn, whatever it is – there can also be a consistency in showing up in that and that is probably or most likely different from your newsletter or your blog posts or your shows. I don’t know.
It can also be that you’re doing Lives or Instagram Lives on a daily basis or you’re doing them on a weekly basis. So when I talk about consistency, there is different areas in which we can talk about consistency and those two that I just mentioned – the blog post/newsletter thing and the social media – those are the external things.
It starts within
Then there is the consistency in the internal things. For me, one of the things that really, really turned my showing up – I don’t want to say business because this was at a time when I was going through the last parts of my latest “dark night of the soul”. This is what came at the end of it.
Commit and allow love to expand from within
What came at the end of it was a commitment to write 2 hours every single day. It was just one day I knew: “Tomorrow, I am going to start writing and I’m going to be writing for 2 hours every single day.” So that was the first thing I did in the morning when I woke up and I had done my practice. Then I would set an alarm on my phone to 2 hours and I would write.
In the beginning, of course, the writing that came out wasn’t necessarily the greatest writing but it was my commitment. Because the thing is when you commit to a rhythm, to a consistency, to a rhythm of consistency, your resolve grows. Your commitment grows. Your love for what you’re doing grows and as that expands, you really strengthen. You get stronger and it’s – I don’t want to say funny but it is interesting how – and that goes of course because with what you focus on, that is what is strengthened.
Show up for yourself
So when you choose to focus on showing up for yourself, which my writing could be seen as – this was not something that I ever shared in the beginning – you shift the focus from fear to love and that is one of the most powerful things there is in the world. So expanding from that place, growing from that place, is just a – I’m trying to find the right words but satisfying, deeply nourishing.
Even though that was a dark night of my soul when I wasn’t doing a whole lot of work, it was still shifting my focus and it was expanding my heart.
What’s calling you? Consistency can help
So whether you’ve been in business for a very long time and you have a running business that is running perfectly and if you’ve come to this episode, there is something that his calling you.
What I would encourage you to do or inspire you to do is create a consistent commitment to allow that to grow.
Abundance flows from consistency
What happened from those 2 hours that I wrote every day for almost I want to say 6 to 8 months – what happened was I actually after I came out of it and once my business started taking off, what I realized was that I created a shit-ton of content for my blog.
I had created the Magdalene Blueprint that you may or may not have heard of. (find it here) It’s a freebie that I have. A lot of the work that I’ve done on Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Essences – everything, all of that came through. It was in bits and pieces and I had to collect it and put it together but everything was in there.
So in terms of you and where you’re at, I want to – maybe I’ve not mentioned something that you either struggle with or maybe I’ve mentioned a whole lot that you struggle with, but I want to inspire you to take a review and ask yourself, “What area of my business would benefit from me having a consistent practice of something?”.
Whether it be starting to show up in networks, external networks like group meetings or brunch meetings. Whether it is showing up on social media. Whether it is creating blog posts. Whether it is committing to researching podcasts and shows that you can be on or want to be on. Whether it is learning something new.
There are a whole lot of different ways that you can use this, the consistency, so I want to inspire you or empower you to take a review and ask yourself like I said, “Where can I and my business benefit from me having a consistent, committed practice to something?”
Your Entrepreneurial Journey is intertwined with your awakening journey
As you do that, because what is calling you I like to say will also bring up everything. Because I see our entrepreneurial journey as an awakening journey, as our awakening journey.
So as you move through these things, what will come up for you is there will probably be a lot of fears or worries. There will probably be limiting beliefs. So you really need to shift your mindset.
Accountability is powerful
Something that is also – and that’s what I see in my clients – is having the accountability of someone who is able to hold space for what it is that comes up and that is of course the work that I do.
There are others that do that but if that is something that you would like to have, if accountability is something that you would like to have in your life and your business, don’t forget to apply for your free discovery session.
