Consistent Success


Tom Corley boats - crop

Everyone wants to be successful, but few know how or where to begin.

Success is a process. Just like failure is a process.

The struggle to become successful, I learned from my Rich Habits study, is figuring out that process.

Most pursue success the hard way – Trial and Error.

After years of taking action on their dreams, they learn what to do and what not to do. They learn from their mistakes and failures.

According to my Rich Habits research, this Dream path takes about 12 years. Twelve years of trial and error.

Unfortunately, this long time horizon causes most to quit long before they ever realize their dreams.

But there is a better, easier way.

Consistency, I discovered is the key to success.

The self-made millionaires in my Rich Habit study pursued success every day by forging good daily habits that automated success.

Forging good daily habits, or Rich Habits, is the way you gain that consistency.

Good habits put you on autopilot for success because they automatically imbue you with consistency.

When you have good habits, you don’t need passion. You don’t need motivation. You don’t need willpower. You don’t need confidence.

Success doesn’t require any of those things.

In fact, most of the self-made millionaires in my study succeeded because they did not rely on passion, motivation, willpower or confidence. Instead, they relied on habits.

When you forge good daily habits, your path to success is virtually guaranteed because, every day, you are consistently doing what it takes to succeed. Consistency is the path to success and good daily habits are the key that opens the door to that path.

Passion, motivation, willpower and confidence, come and go. Good habits, however, are there to stay. Once forged, they never come and go. They just go. Every day.

Good daily habits overpower everything that stops success in its tracks: loss of passion, loss of motivation, loss of willpower, uncertainty and doubt.

Focus on forging good daily habits and the pursuit of success becomes a consistent daily habit.
