A great personality trait that I learned from my parents was consistency. If you had a job to go to, be there consistently. I had perfect attendance many of my school years because of consistency. We were in church practically every time the doors were open as a result of their consistency. If you believed in doing the right thing do that always, be consistent.
I have 4 children ages 12, 13, 15, and17 and my oldest missed their first two days of school this year since starting at this school in seventh grade. The majority of my children have perfect attendance every year as a result of my parents consistency. Ladies and gentlemen if you are consistent, it takes away a lot of arguments that would ever be made against you. Mom and dad, thanks for being consistent, it helps me to be a better man.
