Good Monday : Keep Digging Consistently
by George Galindo | on July 1, 2013
In the famous, inspirational, movie The Miracle, we here the main character played by Kurt Russell say this powerful word : “Again!”
Miracle tells the true story of Herb Brooks, the player-turned-coach who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team to victory over the seemingly invincible Russian squad. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a small clip.
Now, the movie was incredibly powerful because of the power of belief and teamwork. But today I wanted to emphasize the word, “Again!”
It’s been used in other movies as well. The setting involves the student and the master. The student may be frustrated or exhausted. Yet the master or mentor knows and understands the power of consistent motion and repetition. Though the student may not understand, it ultimately leads to a victorious ending!
This Good Monday, I was reminded of the verse found in Galatians 6:9. I paraphrase here : “Do not grow weary, or lose heart, in well doing. Dig in again today. Here comes your Overflow!” #ConsistencyCan
There are three simple things you can do to develop consistency in any endeavor.
1. Speak Positively : Don’t declare self-defeating things like, “I’ll never…” or “Why can’t I…” Instead re-frame your words into empowering phrases like, “I can, I will…” or “I am always improving and advancing!”
2. Build Momentum : Start with something small or easy and build up from there. Getting started can be challenging but if you begin to have small victories this will propel you to more and more positive momentum.
3. Team Work : As depicted in the clip above, we see that we can increase our results and overcome more odds when we know we have, both, the support of others, and when we know others are counting on us. Accountability is critical and will empower us to be able to get to the next level.
In a previous post I mentioned the power of masterminding. Here’s a small sampling of a team we’re involved with that is building momentum and igniting various business endeavors through the three principles mentioned above.
Take massive action consistently! This is the key to overcoming every endeavor!
