When we look at other people who have what we want, we tend to think they were lucky or don’t like them. Or both. Most of the time, the people were not lucky, but they lived their life with consistency.
Look at almost any type of successful person; you find that success leaves clues. Successful people do consistently what other people occasionally do.
The people who do good things occasionally look at the people who do good things consistently and discount their consistency.
Successful people do what other people occasionally do. If we are struggling in one of the major areas of our life, there is a very good chance that it is because we are inconsistent in that particular area.
The Apostle Paul addresses this issue when writing to the believers in Corinth. In fact, Paul counsels them to start training to receive the crown. So how can we start training and what type of training should we be doing?
