Consistency not luck is the differentiator. Successful leader do consistently what other leaders do occasionally. — Craig Groschel, Leadership Podcast

While I don't believe that Craig would dismiss the role that luck can often play in things, I adamantly agree that consistency is key to success...and the one that you control. You decide what you focus on. You decide what you spend your time on. You decide whether or not you are consistent. If you're looking for luck, you may or may not find what you're looking for.

In focusing on consistency, you may find success and you certainly will build the qualities that foster trust and reliability. When a leader consistently shows up and delivers results, they earn the trust and respect of their team. Consistency also helps to build a sense of predictability and stability, which is essential for fostering a positive work environment. When team members know what to expect from their leader, they can rely on them to provide guidance and support when needed.

When you're focused on being consistent, you build the disciple and accountability needed to help you achieve goals. By living out the regular habit of setting expectations and following through on commitments, a leader can be an inspiration that may help others act these out themselves.

Finally, focusing on consistency helps you stay focused on the big picture. When you can keep your eye on the long-term goals and objectives, regardless of the challenges and distractions that will arise, you are better able to course-correct when needed and make progress on the right things.
