Inner Growth Word of The Day 162 – Consistency

June 11

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Consistency


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 3 a. agreement or harmony of parts or features to one another or a whole.  3 b. harmony of conduct or practice with profession.


Consistency in a sentence: When you have consistency, you are in complete sync with your mind, heart, and actions.


Consistency in action: Actions that reflect your words (what you say) show consistency.


Consistency and inner growth: A look at where consistency is present and where it’s not in your life gets you to take a second look at the things you’re doing versus the things you’re saying.  This exploration allows you to find where harmony is needed and when absent why that is the case.  The result is inner growth as you bring harmony to each area you explore of consistency within you; and as you bring to awareness, those areas that are complete in consistency already.


Consistency and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: How does consistency play a role in my life? When did I first notice consistency within me?  How does consistency affect my relationships?  What have I learned from consistency?  Why is consistency something meaningful?  What areas of me have more consistency?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with consistency at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick the one word that stands out the most and think of a specific life event that is important to you for what it taught you about consistency.  Write about this event using the words from your first list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about consistency and allow them to flow throughout your body, from head to toe, heart to mind, and so on. As this takes place notice what types of emotions seem to be more prevalent and if they seem to gather in specific locations in your body or if they evenly flow.  When you’re ready allow thoughts to come in too and notice what events come to mind as you do this.
