Consistently Inconsistent - Total Recovery

There is no greater need in the life of an addict that consistency in the right direction.

Just this morning I was pondering the concept of consistency. It is something I am not very good at as anyone who knows me can attest to. I'm the kind of person who starts off strong, with great ideas and enthusiasm, like a greyhound from the gate but halfway through the race, I slow down, lose interest and in too many cases simply quit altogether. This is not a good habit for a Christian to have. With this in mind I sought out my good friend, the teller of secrets, the pool of unending knowledge ~ Google! I found some interesting quotes regarding consistency from many famous people in all walks of life. The famous writer Oscar Wilde stated that "consistency is the hallmark of the unimaginative". Mahatma Gandhi noted that "constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position." The motivational speaker Tony Robbins had this to say about consistency " in essence, if we want to direct our lives we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in awhile that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently."
