So far, we’ve covered the first 3 pillars of my Success System – Standards, Discipline, and Accountability. Now it’s time to address the GLUE that holds the whole thing together – Pillar #4 – SYSTEMS.
Systems are absolutely essential. Think of them like the script for a movie. Can you imagine all of the actors and actresses walking onto the set to film a major motion picture without a script? It would be a disaster.
Systems are the scripts for our lives.
We need systems to help circumvent our logic, to keep us moving forward when the going gets tough and our coaches and mentors aren’t available.
When I started my business, I drew upon my military experience and took the advice of a mentor who suggested that I run my business from Day #1 as if I already had thousands of clients.
This was incredibly powerful business advice, and I am so grateful that I listened to it because the systems I put in place early on, and have continued to develop over the years, have allowed the company to grow efficiently and effectively.
Systems can have a profound effect on your personal life as well. I use systems and tools all the time in my everyday life and I urge you to do the same. My personal systems give me a daily roadmap to follow so I stay on the path to my goals and avoid getting sidetracked.
The 4 Peak Performance Pillars – standards, discipline, accountability, and systems – are an incredibly powerful recipe for success.
Unfortunately, however, it’s not enough to just KNOW this information. There is a whole science behind implementation. Think about it: You know what needs to be done to achieve the results you want, but you don’t always do those things, right? Worse yet, you know that doing certain things will give you the exact opposite of the result you desire, and yet you do them anyway.
It is one thing to possess information, but changing behavior so that you actually implement that knowledge is something else entirely. Once you understand and internalize the process of bridging this “information-action gap,” you can go on to create whatever results you want – and that’s when seemingly magical things occur.
