4. Choose to Be Consistent Above All Else “Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” -Calvin Coolidge Consistency is the most fundamental virtue to achieving world-class success. To become world-class, you need to develop mastery over several complex areas. This will take time. Even the most disciplined individuals struggle with consistency. It won’t be easy. But if you choose to fully commit, to keep going no matter what… You can accomplish nearly any goal. The truth is, consistency beat talent. Consistency beats luck. Consistency beats good intentions. Frankly, consistency even beats quality. The consistent performer will, over time, outperform her more talented yet inconsistent counterpart. World-class success requires extreme commitment. In the words of John Assaraf: “If you’re ‘interested’, you come up with stories, excuses, reasons, and circumstances about why you can’t or why you won’t. If you’re committed, those go out the window. You just do whatever it takes.” Do you want world-class success?If so, ask yourself:Am I committed?Or merely interested?Commit to consistency, and world-class success will follow.“Most people knock on the door of their dreams once, then runaway before anyone has a chance to the open the door. But if you keep knocking, persistently and endlessly, eventually the door will open.” -Les Brown
