Persistency and Consistency

Persistency and Consistency

Persistency Defined: defines persistency as “the act or fact of persisting; the quality of being persistent: You have persistence, I’ll say that for you.; continued existence or occurrence: the persistence of smallpox; the continuance of an effect after its cause is removed.”

Consistency Defined: defines consistency as “a degree of density, firmness, viscosity, etc.: The liquid has the consistency of cream; steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc.: There is consistency in his pattern of behavior; agreement, harmony, or compatibility, especially correspondence or uniformity among the parts of a complex thing: consistency of colors throughout the house; the condition of cohering or holding together and retaining form; solidity or firmness.”



When all else fails, it’s better to be persistent than consistent, because in order to be consistent, you have to be persistent. Persistency is your drive that keeps you going when all things are dismal and don’t go as planned. Persistency is the motivation that keeps you moving forward; persistency is like a goal – you have to have persistency to be able to have a goal, because without having persistency, you won’t have a goal.

Consistency, on the other hand, is momentum. In order to have the momentum, you have to be consistent. Without consistency, you lack the drive, the motivation to reach and achieve those goals you have in mind or that in which you so desire. Without consistency, you won’t be persistent, and without having persistency, then ask yourself where is your ambition?

Ambition is like a collective idea that you have in your life; an approach to a better lifestyle. If you don’t have an ambition in your life, then what is your sole purpose of your life? Every one has purpose in life; everyone was born with a purpose in life.

In Conclusion:

What is your purpose that will give you the ambition to be persistent at it? And how will you be consistent with your ambition and persistency in order to achieve your purpose in life?

I ask this, because when you have a bad day, do you let your bad day get to you, or will you continue with your persistency in order to be consistent with your ambition you have in life?
