Consistency is the virtue of always acting or performing in the same manner, or of always occurring in the same manner.

A consistent person always acts the same way, has the same attitudes about people or things, and achieves the same level of accomplishment in anything.


Consistency is something that all successful individuals have in common.

This suggests that if you want to be unsuccessful, you must be inconsistent.
