Everybody is looking for the secret formula or hack to become an overnight success, but that rarely if ever happens. As Richard Branson said, “There are no quick wins in business – it takes years to become an overnight success.” Join Jay on his latest Black Entrepreneur Blueprint podcast episode # 388 as he breaks down the importance of consistency and gives you some tips on how to become more consistent in your business.
BLACK ENTREPRENEUR BLUEPRINT – SHOW NOTES EPISODE # 388
Billionaire Richard Branson said, “There are no quick wins in business – it takes years to become an overnight success.” I want to be totally clear on this, there’s no quick way to build a successful, sustainable business – you may get some quick licks or hits hear or there, but to build a successful, sustainable business there are certain principles you must follow. AND one of the most important is that of consistency.
- You can’t do sit-ups for three days and think you’re gonna have 6-pack abs
- You can’t miss one meal and think you’re going to lose 10 pounds
- AND YOU DEFINITELY can’t be a successful entrepreneur if you’re not consistent in your actions
Consistency is counterintuitive to the way most people live. We are creatures of habit, and we are ruled by human nature. Most people don’t have the intestinal fortitude to be consistent with most things – diet, exercise, entrepreneurship, etc.
I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT THESE TWO CONCEPTS – Time Value of Money and Time Value of Consistency (I just made that up)
The Time Value Of Money Works The Exact OPPOSITE of The Time Value Of Consistency
Time Value of Money definition – is the concept that a sum of money is worth more now than the same sum will be at a future date due to its earnings potential in the interim.
Time Value of Consistency definition – Is the concept that consistent actions (consistency) are worth more LATER than it is now – and in many cases, exponentially greater due to the compounding effect of your consistency.
Opportunity cost – what’s the opportunity cost of not taking action NOW and not leveraging your time?
- Can create a predictable growth in your business
- Exponentially gains momentum like a snowball rolling down a hill
- The sum can become greater than it’s parts.
- Helps you build a platform and a solid foundation for your business
