Nothing is more important than being consistent in your profession or business. Consistency doesn’t mean being in a cycle; it means growing while being consistent. As the Roman poet Vitruvius once said, “Consistency is found in that work whose whole and detail are suitable to the occasion. It arises from circumstance, custom, and nature.”
John Holowaty is a mentor and leader at Juice Plus in Britain. He sets his example of consistency and growth to show why it is crucial for every business owner. As an experienced professional, John always shares insights on the latest trends and network and social media marketing strategies for others to grow business.
John takes on the role of a mentor to help people overcome hurdles by sharing his experience through Facebook Live. Many followers ask about John’s secret code to success. Here are some of them:
Dealing with Negativity
When you start a business, you face a lot of negative criticism. People always find ways to degrade your ideas because they are jealous of your success. It feels like being chased down by a lion, and you have nowhere to run. John says, “See negativity like this: you’re shining your light on yourself, which is reflecting onto them, and you’re a mirror to them.”
According to John, one needs to strengthen their “negative muscles” to flick away any toxic stuff like a speck of dust. When you train your mind to deal with negativity by focusing on consistency and growth, nothing can stop you from putting those ideas into action.
Having Fun Along your Journey
People tend to overcomplicate things and get tangled up, hindering their growth. Compared to that, John never took his business seriously. He had fun, and through that fun, his business grew.
When John began his business in 2009 and had a few customers in the early days, he struggled to find a team, but that didn’t stop him from having fun. John would invite his friends and party around whenever there was a business event. However, he remained consistent while managing his business. Gradually, the circle grew. He met new people with shared ideologies who became part of his team.
Taking life too seriously can bore you out, and you can easily lose interest in your passions. So, have fun with the process.
Following Inspirational People
One of the biggest reasons for John’s consistency and business growth was following inspirational people. He would listen to audiobooks, read self-help books, and surround himself with good friends who had the same goals as him.
Reading self-help books by experienced authors can give you hidden knowledge and possible solutions to your business problems. Similarly, when you interact with a passionate person, you find yourself drawn toward them. It motivates you to work on your own goals like them.
These three codes are John’s main secret to getting what you want in life. To gain more insights about his growing business, visit Mentor John’s official website.
