You’ve probably experienced the freedom and feeling of abandonment when you carry out your daily and repetitive routines. It feels like you’re on auto- pilot and you’re doing things without being aware of it. Well, that helps explain the value of creating Systems. They could also be called habits, things that you do step by step the same way every time. You can actually put your wealth building efforts on auto-pilot if you design Systems. This will do so many things for you. You will use less energy, make the best use of your time, and make consistent progress toward your wonderful goals with minimal pressure. This article explores five areas that will work well in Systems toward your multimillionaire future.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Sir Albert Einstein
Design a System of Imagination
We are such an objective and fact oriented society that it’s hard to think about the importance of imagination. That’s ironic because everything worthwhile was first created in the imagination. According to Benjamin Hardy, “Being highly imaginative is how you become self aware.” Since we can never have an objective knowledge of ourselves, we might as well use our imaginations to create the Kingdom multimillionaire we want to be. “The more imaginative you can be about yourself, about what you learn, and about your future, the more creative control you have over these things” Hardy.
Design “imagining” time into your day, maybe while you’re driving or waiting somewhere. I like to use the Sabbath as a day of rest, gratitude to Yah and imagining. Imagine yourself being the CEO of a great benevolent (big hearted) business that delights your customers and creates millions of dollars to be used for your needs and Kingdom projects. Designing time to imagine will reveal elements of your character and personality that you were never aware of. Design “imagining” time into your routines.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Design a System of Planning
Planning is a natural result of imagining. As you imagine your future, you will need to go further and determine the route you will take to get to your millionaire goals. Three great questions you might ask are: Where are you? Where are you going? and How are you going to get there? This is plotting your course from point A to point B. There are many ways to create your plan. Writing or drawing out your ideas is a must. If you don’t write it down your ideas will be lost.. Just use the method of recording you prefer, but do it on a regular basis. Ideally, at the same place and at the same time. This helps establish your habitual System of planning. You just go there without thinking much about it.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Design a System of Giving a Little Extra
Actually, I think this is more of a habit or attitude. Anyway, I’ll treat it like a System for this article. “Giving a little extra” refers to analyzing your business situations and pinpointing something you can do for the project or customer that goes beyond what is expected. This can carry over into our personal lives. You will gain a sense of gratitude, confidence and significance as you develop this System. In business, it is phenomenal. If you give your customers more than they expect, your business will skyrocket. Developing this System will help you become successful in everything you do for the rest of your life. Commit to “Giving a little extra”.
“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
Develop a System for Showing Up Every Day
Showing up for the Systems you build everyday is huge! Consistency gives you so much confidence and strength that you will wonder why you haven’t done this before. We are hurt more by the promises we don’t keep to ourselves than the promises we don’t keep to others. Designing a System for showing up everyday involves doing the mental work. Think about how you can consistently apply these Systems to your life. Commitment and consistency are mental decisions that we must make if we want to become Kingdom multimillionaires and keep the millions. Systems, not magic.
“If you can not measure it,
you cannot improve it.”
Develop a System for Measuring Results
Imagining, planning, giving a little extra, and showing up everyday are excellent wealth building Systems, but you will not know how effective they are without measuring your progress. This is a step many of us miss. We just do what we are going to do and keep going to the next thing. However, it is so important to look back to where you started from and acknowledge the journey you have made. Design a System for measuring your progress periodically. Once a month would work or maybe every three months could work. You decide but just be sure to measure your progress in each System.
Gaining wealth is an orderly process. It is not magic. If you are determined to become a multimillionaire, you will get there because it is Yah’s will that we have wealth for the Kingdom but He will not just drop it down to us. We must grow into it by consistently moving toward the multimillionaire state. If you are already consistent and persistent, celebrate now because you are almost there. If you are not persistent, slowly design these Systems for your life and you will be amazed.
