Importance of consistency
Consistency is the key to success. It leads to habits. Habits form the actions we take every day. Action leads to success. As Anthony Robbins said: “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.” Srdjan Coric
It always seems to happen the same way. You start a new habit. It is a great habit. It is making your day better. In fact, it seems like it will improve your life. If only you could remain consistent. It is the thing that stands between us and achieving the goals (success) we talk about wanting so much. Essence Revealed
Nothing is more effective than consistency when it comes to making your company, or your performance, stand out. In a sense, it underlines the message you want to convey to stakeholders and customers regarding your ability to regularly (consistently) achieve goals and objectives. In short, it is the habit that leads to successful projects. Peter Landau
There is just one ingredient that goes into success that is more important than anything else. And that ingredient comes in the form of consistency. Adam Sicinski

So, no matter how many times you need to practice, do it. If you truly want it, the practice will be that important to you.
