Become the leader of everyone, by being consistent like no one…

One of the things I’m asked about often, is how I seem to know so much stuff.  Usually this doesn’t happen as much when I’m writing online, but when people get around me at an event (like No Excuses), and they hear me talk, after a while they get bewildered that I seem to be able to respond to almost any industry related question, with no preparation or thought, and give a compelling, clear answer and the exact methodology of accomplishment.

Yesterday, I wrote a blog post about tapping into your inspirational frame, and in that post I mentioned the importance of consistently studying and acting in ways that create confusion and slight discomfort in learning.  Part of creating and tapping into that inspirational frame is the actual act of becoming uncomfortable – creating entropy to stimulate order.

In this business, you’ve heard that it’s always those who are the most consistent who win.  But consistent at what?  I have plenty of people, for example, that are consistent at refreshing their back office, buying courses, books, and audios, and attending events, but they are NOT consistent in doing things that create an energy of discomfort in their life.

Some of us will do anything to avoid what’s hard, and the result is, we never grow, evolve, and learn.

If you want to become a leader, if you want to inspire the masses and cause change that alters the course of history – you’ve got to do things on a consistent basis that make you uncomfortable so you’re forced to evolve.

The simplest example is that your muscles don’t grow unless they first break down, and everything in both the body and mind operates in the same set of rules when it pertains to growth, expansion, and power.

Who is going to win? It is those who are more consistent than anyone else at doing things that stretch who they are, so that they can become more than they are right now.

The Magical Promise:

If you consistently force yourself to do things that cause you to grow and evolve, eventually the unthinkable happens – your new ‘comfort zone’ stretches to a point where you are UNCOMFORTABLE in your comfort zone, and your ‘new zone’ of relaxation is running head-first ‘into the wild’.

When that happens, it’s impossible not to grow, and you can get there by deciding to take action now…

…one day at a time :)

(and after a while of doing that, you’ll know a lot of weird stuff, too)

To your empowering decisions,
David Wood

i also think it is good to forge, some of yuor consistencies, so that people become really confused on your next move, and if someone wants to manipulate you on something you are consistent in, then a 'no' will be the best answer.

"I have plenty of people, for example, that are consistent at refreshing their back office"...ha! You're totally right David, we need to consistenly put ourselves out of our comfort zone to grow. Wow. What a powerful promise at the end. Inspiring my man! Keegan

Dave, the book that really illustrated the importance and reward of certainty better than anything else I have read or heard is the book by Darren Hardy, publisher of Success Magazine, called "The Compound Effect." He dedicates all his massive success to the principle of consistency and says that because of it, he can beat anyone at anything because he knows he can be more consistent than anyone else and will therefore win. Very powerful book, I highly recommend it! Really hammers across it's incredible importance and power.

Great article as usual Dave. Being consistent in doing the things many others won't do will help you become successful. This in itself shows great leadership because your success inspires others to grow and maybe try new things that will also help them reach success. Thanks for this article.

Great Post David. It's all about knowing your strengths & focusing on 1 thing. Opportunity Seekers Never Succeed, you have to be strategic & have a rock solid game plan. I'll be on an island soon myself.

I agree David, and I'm willing to explain the comfort zone stretch a tad further. I remember when just learning what a capture page is was a stretch of the imagination, but I learned. Then blogging. . Why do I need this, how can this work, what's the point of that? Once I realized how comfortable stretching your comfort zone can be, I realized how much I'd already accomplished. I learned new hidden secrets that God allowed me to witness, control, and apply. This new applied knowledge is always power.

Haha, I know a lot of people that are consistent at buying courses (and never putting them to use) too! They're also consistent at subscribing to dozens of email lists and watching 21 webinars a week and just confusing the hell out of themselves to the point that they couldn't take action if they wanted to because they wouldn't know where to start. I know,,, cuz I was like that and it paralyzed me. I had a total mental breakdown about 7 months in to network marketing and just started completely over... actually I started over twice within weeks of each other,,, once was on Feb 23, and then again on March 17th 2010 LOL

Hey David, We need to focus our energy on the things that make us money. Although reading books has it's part in the learning process, if you aren't taking what you learned and putting it to use, it's just wasted time. Writing articles, making videos, talking to people may cause discomfort, but it's where the money begins to flow from.

Hi David you have it mate. Something the ammateur will never get, it is the consistant activity, done every day, pushing yourself further and expanding our abilities that makes the person the leader. Picking up the phone when they don't want to, doing a meeting when your tired, writing a blog post or going to a conference. Being consistant in these things helps you build your business. great stuff James

I swore off blogs a few months ago (they became a time suck), but after NES2 I decided I wanted to start reading a couple INSPIRATIONAL and educational industry-related blogs. After browsing around the last few days, I think your blog will fit the bill nicely! Thank you!
