Strength In Consistency…
Yes, those are the 4 Horsemen pictured above. Back in the 80’s this group of guys were the meanest nastiest bunch of professional wrestlers to ever hit your TV screen! So what do the 4 Horsemen have to do with today’s post? Well just keep on reading to find out.
Strength In Numbers, Or Strength In Consistency?
So in today’s blogisode I actually do want to talk about the 4 Horsemen. Why? Because it’s a damn cool subject that’s why! Ok now back to my point.
So the 4 Horsemen were these bunch of troublemakers that walked onto the wrestling scene back in the 80’s. As a kid I remember getting up on Saturday mornings with some of my friends and my brother to watch the world champ Rick Flair (The blond guy with the suit and tie) lead this group of misfits while, at the same time talking so much trash that it would provide me with enough entertaining fodder to use on my own friends for the following couple of school weeks.
Just in case you were wondering what the king of trash talk looks like up close and personal I figured I would include this little clip here both for your viewing pleasure and for educational purpose as well.
As you can see that’s quite a verbal display of epic proportions. Nevertheless, I’m not here to talk about Rick and the 4 Horsemen’s verbal skills. However, I do want to address another trait of importance that they displayed on a weekly basis.
You see whether you’re an old school wrestling fan or not the point I’m driving at is that whenever any of those 4 Horsemen showed up on your TV screen back in the 80’s during those Saturday morning specials you knew what you were in for. I mean you knew you were in for a show, period.
You see the key to driving towards any goal is making sure that you follow a process of consistency. This is the other trait I was driving at that those crazy wrestlers displayed every week. I mean whether we’re talking about the pursuit of strength in the realm of athletic performance, or to work towards building a business that is going to be successful you MUST have a process involving a consistent plan of pursuit day after day. This is a vital element because strength does actually come from consistency.
You see there are no quick solutions to getting to where you want to go. There’s always going to be obstacles, traffic, problems, and setbacks. These traits consume the life of athletes, businesses, communities, families, and every other person or organization you can think of in this place known as the real world. Plain and simple it’s just a fact of life.
It’s a funny thing too because I was just asked about this by an acquaintance of mine at the coffee shop just this week. I talk about that in a bit more detail here.
Now you know I didn’t just want to come on here today just to solely talk about wrasslin. There was actually a lesson in store for you here, or at least I hope so.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post on deriving strength from consistency. If so then please feel free to leave a comment or question in the box below this post. Remember that most anyone can train hard, but only the best train smart my friend.
