Morning Mindset: Success is a System
Updated: Sep 13, 2022
"A system will make anything easier. Systems move you from a decision to an intended result in the most rapid possible way. The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does".
Hey everybody! My name is Stephanie, and welcome to the Keto Mom page. We're going to talk about systems today. You might have heard me say the phrase, "You don't rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems".
Systems are super important, and they're super powerful. The choices that you make throughout the day are super important. It helps you to be mindful, and to have an awareness.
But if you don't have systems in place to get you to where you want to go, then you fall to the level of the systems that you have in place, regardless if you put them there.
I'm just randomly picking books and things that I feel would help you. As you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? This page has been around for seven years or longer. You will find lots of different things here on the Keto Mom page. And if you ever need recipes, how tos, any past books that we've done, then you can always visit our website ketomomsecrets.com.
Alright! We're going to talk about systems. "You don't rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems"... I'm going to read something to you, which I hope will help you in any way, shape, or form.
The book is called "The Pursuit", by Dexter Jaeger. The chapter is called "Success is a System". What does that mean?
"Wherever I have been successful in my life, behind the success is a system. I create systems to create predictable results".
So he said anything that he had success in life, there was a system behind why he got what he wanted, why he reached a goal, and why he is where he is today.
"Everything I do, I do it with an intented result in mind. And then I create a system to create an intended result. I've learned that the more time that you have to take thinking about the same things over and over again, the more unproductive you are.
All my life, I've been devoted in developing, performing, and perfecting systems to make me as productive as possible".
So I wrote down some ideas, but I'm going to read a little bit more to you. And then we'll talk about what systems could look like in your life. If you are going after a goal, or if there are things that you want in your life. I'm sure all of you would love to be successful in your relationships, health journey, finances, work life, or your parenting life.
"A system will make anything easier. Systems move you from a decision to an intended result in the most rapid possible way. I have a system for almost everything".
"For where I put my keys, to how I buy, wear, and pick my clothes. And for how I bring people into my business. How to teach people, how to train people. I have a system for how I spend my day".
When you get up, it's either you have a system for your morning, or you don't have a system, which therefore is a system to fail. You must have a system if you are working on your health and fitness. If you just hope to lose the 30 pounds, that "Hoping" isn't enough. You need to have a system on how to get to where you want to go.
"Anybody that has ever had any kind of success and keeps it, has a system. A major part of the system is learning it. If you have a team, or you want to develop a team, having a system of consistency is crucial for success".
The team could be your family. It could be the people that you work with.
"To really make that system multiply, you have to keep it simple".
So there's a consistency aspect of the system that you're going to create and a simplicity aspect. What do you want? What are the goals that you want to achieve? And then we have to reverse engineer it. If you want to lose 30 pounds, what do you need to do consistency consistently?
You've got to have the systems that are consistent and simple to achieve that goal. If you find yourself in this hamster wheel every single year of constantly going after a goal, but not achieving it. Then that means you've either made it too hard, you're not doing it long enough, the systems aren't working, or you don't actually have a system in place to get to where you want to go.
"If you don't have a system for success, you have a system for failure".
That just means that you don't have a system at all, which therefore is a system of failure. If you don't have a system for success, you have a system for failure.
"Little hinges swing big doors".
It's the little consistent, simple actions every day that you put into place that might not make it seem like a big deal on a day to day basis. But on a month, and a couple of months and a year, which is a big door that has little hinges, eventually you will get to where you want to go.
TIPS IN CREATING A SYSTEM
1. Learn what to do from the best.
You need to find mentors, find people that have already done what you want to do. Talk and learn from them.
2. Learn how to do something the best that you can. Not perfect but do things the best that you can.
3. And then you have to do it.
