1 Corinthians 15:58 (NKJV) “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

We focus this month on an additional phase of making life work for you and living abundantly. We begin with some self-reflection questions on your personal level of consistency, commitment and connection.

  • ·        What are you consistently doing to improve your quality of life?
  • ·        How is this working for you?
  • ·        What are you consistently avoiding – for whatever reason and minimizing your quality of life?
  • ·        How is this working for you?
  • ·        What actions are needed to enhance your consistency?
  • ·        How committed are you to the process of change and improvement?
  • ·        Are you as effective as you believe you can be?
  • ·        What are you committed to do – as we end this year?
  • ·        Why are connections important or not important to you as you live your life?
  • ·        How do you increase your connections to people who encourage you and hold you accountable?
  • ·        How do you minimize the impact of toxic people?
  • ·        We consistently describe and discuss topics related to self-improvement, self-discipline and self-esteem. How does each topic resonate with you based on your current level of growth in any or all of your life areas?

In our discussion we find that Consistency is a powerful motivator for action because it is generally valued as a character trait, and serves as a basis of logic, rationality, responsibility, stability, and honesty. There is measurable evidence of consistency and inconsistency in our relationships and throughout each of our life areas. Labels often assigned to consistent people and actions differ significantly from people and actions that are deemed inconsistent.  

Commitment is the Key is the key element that reinforces the behavior of consistency. It requires us to take a stand on doing what we say will do, being who we believe ourselves to be and holding ourselves accountable. Commitments help us connect to others in ways that are natural and on some levels, supernatural. Our connections help to form our relationships. Consider all that has been said and done to help you live the life of your dreams.
