The Secret of Successful People

Never miss two days.

A few years ago, I asked my coach, what is the secret of successful people? You know, those people that seem to have it all figured out, they project an image of confidence and ease and comfort and they really get a lot done.

And my coach responded: their secret is consistency.

They do things consistently every single day, they don't miss a day.

So I thought to myself, okay, never miss a day.

That seemed really simple. So I told myself, I'm going to try that.

And indeed never miss a day worked - until it did it.

One day I really had to miss. I really could not deliver. And that felt really terrible.

That was such a bad experience for me.

I felt so shamed and I beat myself up and all in all it was so terrible, that I promised to myself that I would not miss the following day.

So that's what I did. I’d missed a day but then I didn't miss the following.

In hindsight I realized doing this consistently every single day that is plan A.

Still when life throws various challenges at you, you really need to have the plan B. So for me the plan B is never miss two days.

Missing one day is fine. Missing the second one? Mm-hmm. A no go.

So also you if you resolve to never miss two days in a row then you're going to keep good habits and for sure you're going to be closer to your success.
