We're diving into"Dream It, Pin It, Live It" by Terri Savelle Foy. We've been going through this book since November, and earlier this week our girls started creating their vision boards.
We'll be working on our vision boards as we're getting ready to dive into the new year. We've talked about the "Dream it" part, writing our goals, and the things that we want to accomplish next year. We've talked about "Pinning it", which is the actual vision board. And then "Live it", which means "Action".
You can visit our website ketomomsecrets.com and click on Book club, you can see all of the books that we've done in the past year. We went through "The Power of One More" by Ed Mylett.
"There's a difference between goals and standards. I've got a mind-blowing revelation for you. Unfortunately or fortunately, goals and standards are two different things. You have to set standards, and many people confuse goals and standards as one and the same but they're not. Before you can achieve your goals, you must understand the role that standards play".
~ Ed Mylett (The Power of One More)
Are you ready to take action on your goals and dreams?
What standards are you willing to accept?
"You don't rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems"
~James Clear (Atomic Habits)
So I've got my S.M.A.R.T. goals, but just because I have something written down, printed out, and hanging on my wall, doesn't mean I'm actually going to achieve them.
I have to live with it and understand the power of standards. I have to understand that I don't rise to the level of my goals, I fall to the level of my systems.
The systems are my habits and standards. When you raise your standards, habits, and systems, that's when you create those action steps that will get you to your goal.
"Preparation time is never wasted time".
It's the things that you do throughout your day that people don't see, action steps a day in and day out, or doing your DMO, are the things that will get you to where you want to go. Those little habits that are stacked over time will get you to those goals that you've written down.
I started my board last night, and it's different than others. I started with words, it's kind of like the book "Chazown". I created my goals based on the different spokes in my life.
If one spoke is broken, then it affects your other spokes. And so I did different spokes and I picked out "BUILD" as my word for the year.
I put the phrase that I honestly have been praying about, in the center of the board. I honestly feel that God gave me this because I had been praying about it for a long time. I also picked words that showed me what building within means.
And then I put little spokes of what my goals for fitness are...
Walk three times a week.
Stretch five times a week
Go to CrossFit four to five times a week
I'm going to get more specific because in order to achieve your goals, you have to take action. I have to know exactly what I want to do. I know I want to stretch or go for walks. I would like to do 10,000 steps a day or more. I don't have 100% specific goals, but that is the action.
Do you want to know why it's so important to write these out? Because I've been telling myself to do a lot of things for probably over a year now. One of them was "to stretch" because stretching will help my body stay mobile.
My goal is to stay healthy, and strong, and stay mobile as I age because I'm about to be 40 in February. A year ago, I told myself to stretch every day, but that did not last very long because I didn't have a visual for it. I didn't set myself up for success. I didn't have a visual to remind me.
What's so great about having a vision board is I have reminders and I'm going to take the action. I should stretch in the evenings when the girls are watching a movie, or when we're just talking in the evenings. I need to get more specific on this, but it really helps to have a visual.
I actually have alarm clocks that go off throughout the day, that remind me of certain things that I want to do. It doesn't help to just have a visual and then hope and pray that it works.
You have to put the action behind it, and create systems and habits so that you can consistently do it.
I also have our business goals and spiritual goals with our family. Learn one new Bible verse a week with our girls. I also have our family goals and then I want to write a book.
Your vision board can look whatever you want it to be, but I would encourage you to have a word for the year. In that way, if things do not go your way, you'll have a word to anchor to.
You can learn how to do things faster, and achieve your goals faster. You can go further faster in life by following people that have already done it. All of them have the same concept.
My encouragement to you is to get things out of your mind, get them written down, put a SMART goal to it, and then actually do the action.
Put your vision board someplace where you're going to see it. Set little reminders on your phone. Accountability partners are also great. Have somebody to help you, like your spouse, your kids, your mom, or your best friend. Get things in place so that you don't let yourself off the hook.
So that's all for this morning. I hope you guys have an incredible day. Continue to tune into the Keto Mom page, and reach out with questions. You can also go to ketomomsecrets.com, whatever you're looking for, I'm here to help. We'll talk to you soon. Bye!
