Make progress your habit

Namaste friends and freelancers,

Before I tell you anything today, answer a few of my questions. Let this be a little more interactive. Read these questions and answer in a simple yes or no – but talk, voice out and don’t do it in your mind alone, please.

Today or in the last 24 hours, did you post anything new on your Facebook page or the Facebook group that you run?
Did you post anything on your Instagram or Pinterest account?
Did you write any new post on your blog?

Answer the following questions aloud:
What did you read in the last 24 hours?
What is that one new thing that you learned today?

Did you exercise or take your time out from your schedule to meditate?

I hope you answered. If you did, thank you. It does not matter whether you said Yes or No. But if you have answered the questions, you are now ready for today’s post.

Namaste, my friends! Welcome to post number 6 of this 16 weeks blogging challenge. If you have followed me since this challenge was started, you would know what it is all about. Thanks for staying connected. However, if you have not read the previous posts and this is the first time that you are reading a post in this challenge, let me tell you that this challenge is about writing one post every week for 16 weeks, on motivation and inspiration which can help you in your journey as a freelancer or an online entrepreneur. I would suggest you check out the other posts in this series and trust me, you will be happy when you have done so. Let me know, in your comments.

In this post today, I am not trying to scare you away with the questions I started with. I am just trying to bring your attention to a few daily chores which most of us have listed in things that we do. These are a few things that most freelancers and online entrepreneurs need to do in their daily life. And things that you do daily for your business, bring consistency in your life and business, obviously.

With these questions, I am just trying to stress on the point that whatever we do, we need to be consistent on it. Consistency helps us in maintaining the reliability and trustworthiness of things that we create & share with our subscribers and followers. When we share things consistently on social media, our subscribers find us more dependable, steadfast and trustworthy.

This consistency transforms these tasks into habits. And this brings in success, eventually.


When we do few tasks regularly, they became our habits and these habits add to our regular progress. However small that progress maybe, but there would be some progress, nevertheless. Consistency lets us progress slowly but surely and this progress becomes our habit, in time.

To reach beyond our achievements, you need to be progressing consistently. This is where I can help you and I will, obviously. I will work with you closely and together, we will do everything that would be needed to effectively make it big. To start with, let’s make progress our habit. How? Let’s look into it more closely.

Those questions that I asked at the beginning are just some of the things that many of us do (or are supposed to do) regularly and consistently, right? Posting on Social Media, meditating or reading a book or a daily blog eventually make us getting habituated with these tasks. What are the reasons or goal behind posting on social media, if we take that as an example?

Social media brings us followers, fans, and critics as well. So, when we post something on social media related to our services and products that we sell online, as an online entrepreneur, these fans and followers are the first ones who look at that post. Their reactions (in form of likes, dislikes & shares) and reviews (in forms of comments) bring in more people who eyeball our offerings. If we are offering something that matches with a need that one of those is trying to fulfill in their life, they would buy our product or service. This is the regular business model when you launch your business on social media.

So, the more posts we make the chances of our products being sold increase. However, we should always post as much as our audience could ideally consume. That is a different topic; we will discuss it sometime else. But the real point here is that the more consistently we post things on social media, our followers would be more interested and many of them will be on the lookout for our next post. Which, as we said earlier, eventually will snowball to more followers, more sales and hence, more revenue.

This is an example of how being consistent helps us to progress. And we progress consistently when we make these our habit.

Do you remember that we talked about hard work, where I asked if you really have it in you to make it really big? One way of working hard is to progress habitually. Many online entrepreneurs who have made it big in life have done so ONLY by making progress a habit. Passive income sources like blogging and posting videos on YouTube, largely grow by virtue of consistent activities. You need to make writing articles and making videos a habit and that will contribute to your overall success.

Make progress your habit. Do tasks you ought to do for the propagation of your business in such a way as if they are your daily chores, like taking bath and brushing your teeth. Every day progress by a little bit. And doing so, one day, you will reach beyond your imagination.

So, that is it for this post. I hope this helped you in some way. Kindly let me know in your comments if it did and how it did help you. I and my readers will be all ears to whatever you have to say.
