"It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives.
It's what we do consistently."
- Tony Robbins
Little by Little A little become A lot.
Every great teacher will tell you that when you want to build any habit..... consistency is key.
Here is a great metaphor of what I am talking about.
A stonecutter hits a rock with his hammer. The stone splits. the casual observer sees and thinks, "WOW! That guy is really strong. I can't believe he broke that rock with one single blow!"
The reality is that the stonecutter didn't break the rock in one single blow. He'd been hammering away at that rock for a long time. Many, many blows went into the rock before it finally split.
Many people will look at the person on top of the mountain and say..... aren't they lucky to be standing there. And they forget to look at all the hard work it took for that person to reach the top of the mountain.
Most people see someone who has achieved success whether it's financial wealth, fitness, enlightenment or celebrity status, and think....."WOW, they sure are lucky."
So, keep on hitting the rock.....over and over again.
