Create Your Powerful Identity

Let's say you wish to excel in the art of painting. Or open your own woodworking business. Or become a Filmmaker which I did many years ago. The key is to utilize a Powerful Identity in reframing your Focus. Let's stick with painter for the moment.

Use the words: "I am a painter." The powerful use of the "I am..." phrase welds this new outlook to you mentally, intellectually but, more importantly, emotionally. Why emotionally? When you talk about painting (or any very exciting goal), then you can feel the electrical excitement within your body and Being.

"Being" is the act of existing within this newly embraced identity. Then you grow and become.

Michael's Kenpo Karate Weapons Form - Knife & Pistol

You can see my Pistol & Knife form at approximately 10:31 here in the video from 2010. This is at Bryan Hawkins Kenpo Karate where I have studied Kenpo Karate for approximately over 35 years. The form is one that I created to advance in the system, utilizing Kenpo Karate principles. I use the form with the primary weapon as the firearm, duly guarded and using the knife for close-in drills. This is the training the Warrior phase!

Create Your Own Systems: A Checklist

October 30, 20233 min read

“Systems” are used in our daily lives in almost every facet. Consider the following systems you probably take for granted for running a few simple errands

  • Traffic System - from staying in your line, speed, getting tickets (ugh!) and more

  • Credit Card System - making your payments today and tomorrow

  • Economic System - money - dollars, Euros, yen, gold, silver and more

  • To Do List System - your list could be geographical or chronological

  • Scheduling System - figuring out the times for events and appointments

  • Inventory System - when you go to each lunch, the restaurant stocks up.

  • Employment System - employees and employers

We covered systems in a previous article.

Use the Power of Systems

By creating a few systems of your own, you could improve your odds in numerous areas of your life such as:

  • Teaching Your Kids

  • Organizing Your Work Inquiries

  • Raising Money

  • Finding Work

  • Pursuing Your Dream

Here’s the key: Take YOUR system creation seriously. If you got paid to create a written system at work, you’d have to do the work. Well, you are going to get paid - emotionally, monetarily, etc., - by pursuing and achieving a major goal or dream.

So use the power of Systems for yourself!

A System Checklist

Here is a very good checklist to consider in Creating Your Own System.  Pick and Choose. Don't let it overwhelm you. 

But I am giving you the major checklist here so you can use what is useful but will know about all the attributes of a system. You might choose to incorporate them later.

When creating a simple method for a process, there are several points that you should consider. Here are some key ones:

  1. Define the process: Before you start creating a method, make sure you understand the process you want to describe. This will help you to identify the key steps and potential pitfalls that you need to cover in your method.

  2. Determine the scope: Decide on the scope of your method. Will it cover the entire process, or just a specific aspect of it? Be clear about what your method aims to achieve and what it won't cover.

  3. Keep it simple: The goal of a simple method is to make it easy for anyone to follow. Use clear and concise language, and avoid unnecessary technical jargon.

  4. Use a step-by-step approach: Break the process down into clear and logical steps. List the steps in the order they need to be completed and make sure that each step is clearly explained.

  5. Highlight key points: Identify any critical steps, decision points, or potential challenges in the process. Be sure to highlight these in your method so that the user can be aware of them and take appropriate action.

  6. Use visual aids: Diagrams, flowcharts, or other visual aids can help to make the process easier to understand. Consider including these in your method.

  7. Test your method: Before finalizing your method, test it out to ensure that it is clear and easy to follow. Ask someone who is not familiar with the process to follow the method and provide feedback.

By considering these points, you can create a simple method that is easy to follow and effective in achieving its intended purpose.

TRY ONE! Create just one system for your Dream Goal and give it a month. With a good system, you will surprise yourself with your achievement.
