Children act on impulse rather than logic, do not have control of their emotions and seek to fulfill their needs at times by having tantrums.
They are not consistent in their thoughts and actions because they have not learnt the art of self-discipline.
Part of growing up is learning to be consistent in your actions so you can continue to do what is necessary to achieve your goals.
Are you still driven solely by your emotions?
Are you poor at completing the tasks that you begin?
Does your mouth say one thing but your lack of actions say something else about you?
Do you understand that lack of consistent and reliable behaviour breeds mistrust of you?
Many people become overwhelmed by their own lack of consistency and the effect that has on their life. Things just don’t seem to go right.
At times you may understand you are all or nothing in your actions. Other times you can’t understand why you fail a lot of the time.
To achieve anything in life you need to be consistent in your actions whether it is looking after your health, well-being, wealth, career, money, paying bills, relationships or business.
If you are consistent in your actions, other people tend to see you as reliable and offer you more opportunities. They know you are going to complete tasks and not let them down.
Raising children well and caring for your family requires consistency.
Erratic parents create unstable families where children feel insecure, unprotected, not special and that leave them at a heightened risk of mental health issues when they are older.
Don’t for one moment think children don’t notice your erratic behaviour because they do, as they are like sponges and take in everything, even though they may not fully understand what is happening at the time.
I have a friend who was a single mother and wheelchair bound. She was always there for her daughter and consistent in supporting her. They did not have a lot of money but my friend appeared to her daughter completely reliable. When the daughter finished university at 28, she thanked her mother for a wonderful childhood.
Many people struggle through life from one crisis to another. They blame endless sources for their lack of success, such as a poor school, lack of opportunity and a whole host of reasons they find not to own their own adult behaviour.
Ask yourself this – why do some people who had no opportunities in childhood succeed in so many areas of their lives?
The answer is quite simple. They look for opportunities, make no excuses and consistently apply themselves to the tasks it takes as an adult to turn that opportunity into success.
They don’t whine or whinge but just get on with things, day after day until they achieve their goals.
The ancient Greek philosopher Plato said:
“Apply yourself both now and in the next life. Without effort you cannot be prosperous. Although the land may be good, you cannot have an abundant crop without cultivation.”
I help you train your mind with hypnotherapy and you must bring your willingness to change and step out of old, outdated comfort zones that no longer work for you. Are you ready for that?
