Keto Mom here!
I'm going to have a great night's sleep, I'm going to wake up rested and energized because I get to drink my ketones or my coffee or workout. I get to read, see my family, do my job, and be a blessing to others. The basic whole understanding of the book is, we're waking up with a mindset every single morning to control our day. If you control your morning, you're going to control your day or if you own your morning, you're going to own your day.

Full Episode Transcript
Good morning! Happy Saturday or whatever day you decide to watch this. My name is Stephanie and welcome to the Keto Mom page. We are going to talk about it, being a conscious decision. So as you're tuning in, how is your morning going? We are going to talk about the conscious decision to wake up every morning with a positive attitude. With an "I get to" mentality, with the "I'm excited to wake up and conquer my day". How do we do that? So we're diving into this book, we are on chapter four. If you're reading the book, how are you liking it and if you're not reading the book, continue to tune in, because I'm going to walk you through the "Miracle Morning". The basic whole understanding of the book is, we're waking up with a mindset every single morning to control our day. If you can control your morning, you wake up, get your mindset right, and you're thankful and grateful, you've got your morning hour controlled by you, not the world, not your kids and, and all of the things that happen when you hit the alarm clock. If you control your morning, you're going to control your day or if you own your morning, you're going to own your day. You're going to honestly make better decisions, you're going to feel better, have more energy, and just be a better person.
We're on chapter four, and here's where he's going to start giving you action steps. We talked about his story, he talked about mindset and about taking action. So your first action step that he is going to give you is, "Why do you wake up in the morning?"... "You've got to get up every morning with a determination that you're going to go to bed with satisfaction".
You don't want to live in regret, you don't want to be angry all day, you don't want to be mad that you didn't work out because you hit the snooze button, and then it spiraled out of control or you lost your temper with your kids and your spouse.
Somebody just asked how did I get the mindset that I have today? I read every day and every day I get up. So he's going to walk you through today, through this. My morning is exactly what he talks about in chapter. I'll go over it really quick, "I'll tell you what my mornings looks like" he says. "Why do you bother to get out of bed? Is it because you want to or do you delay waking up, because you absolutely have to, or is it because you get to". So I'm going to tell you something, most people will go "I'm here for Keto, I'm here for low carb", or "I'm here for recipes".... And I go "That's awesome, I will give you all of that".
But if your mindset isn't right, you and I are going to be chatting if you decide to stay on my page forever. Because you might hit a goal, you think that you've accomplished it or you've arrived, and then you go back to doing your old habits, your old systems, your old ways, and then you gain all the weight back.
Then we restart, because that's the average person's cycle. They do it for a little bit, have a little bit of success, but don't get their mindset right. So they feel accomplished, but then they go back to the old system, gain all the weight back, get frustrated, and start all over. That is the average person's mindset, that's what happens. So years ago, I was introduced to self development. We have an incredible CEO that we are blessed to work with and I've always had a mentor in my life ever since I was in youth group when I was a young girl. Then as a young adult, we just had some great adults take my husband and myself under their wings, and we always were available to coaching. That is key... "Are you open to coaching, are you open to a suggestion?" If you are open to learning from somebody, then you are going to grow. But if you're not, if you're stubborn, and if you think you can do it all by yourself, like "I don't need you to tell me what to do, I know what to do"... I remember reading something yesterday that says, "If you know what to do, but you don't do what you know, then you don't know what to do".
So oftentimes people go, "I know what to do"... Okay, awesome, but if you know what to do, and you're not open to coaching from me or anybody else, and you don't do what you know, then you don't know what to do. Or your just lacking that teeny little bit of something that's missing, to get you to take action. So how did I get to how I am today? I did what he talked about this morning, I started with my mindset. I just simply got up and I started reading a page a day.
I have a conversation with God every morning. I lay in bed, and I'm excited to wake up, but before I open my eyes, I say "Okay Lord, I'm ready for today. Are you ready for today? I'm ready".
This is my every morning, I lay there for a second, and I'm so thankful. I'm so thankful that the sun is out, that I get to wake up and I get to drink my ketones. Some of you are coffee lovers, but I'm not a coffee person. Some of you wake up to drink coffee, I wake up to drink ketones. And so, I get to drink my ketones, which flavor am I going to drink. I get to go work out because I really want to feel good. I get to read because I love to read and I love to inspire others. I get to talk to my Keto Mom community, I get to see my girls this morning and I get to have an incredible day with my husband. "I get to" mentality, and he's going to talk about that. That's going to be your action step this morning...
Are you an "I get to" or are you an "I have to". I get to or I have to, we're going to shift that, but you have to do the action step. My question is are you open to coaching? If you're open to coaching, and you're willing to learn, then you will succeed. If you're not then, it is what it is. You'll be average, and that's fine. Ninety five percent of the of the world is average.
I'm not saying that he says that in the book. Okay so he says, "The old saying is "You snooze you lose", may have much more of a deeper meaning than you actually realize. When you delay waking up until you have to, meaning you wait until the last possible minute to get out of bed to start your day. Consider what you're already doing, you're resisting your own life". And so he says, people say "You snooze, you lose". You actually do, because you lose your morning, and your control of your day. If you're hitting the snooze button, and you're constantly going "I have to", then you're just basically saying "I don't want to live my life, or at least not to the fullest". There's so much I could read to you, he says "No one has ever taught us, that by learning how to consciously set our intentions to wake up each morning with a genuine desire, even enthusiastically to do so we could change our entire life".
You don't often hear people say "Did you know that if you wake up with a "get to" mentality, you're going to control your life?"... How often have you read a book or listen to somebody that says "Did you know that if you go to bed with a decision that you're going to wake up with a positive attitude, you're going to change your life?"...
But I'm gonna tell you right now, if you go to bed with a decision that you're going to wake up and then have an incredible morning, you could change your life.
He goes on, and shares a ton of stories... He starts with the question "How much sleep do you need?" How many of you go to bed at night going "I used to do this and I don't do it anymore". You I look at the clock, and I used to go "Okay it's eleven o'clock, I have to get up at six"... So then I would go "I only get six hours of sleep", and the world tells me I need eight hours of sleep to have a great night. Not true! He talks about how everybody's different, we've got different ages, gender and activity level in life. Not everybody needs eight hours of sleep, that's not how it works. So if you, like me, used to go to bed and used to go "I only get seven hours, I'm gonna get enough sleep. How am I going to function tomorrow"... And then you go to bed, you try to fall asleep but all you consumed is "Tomorrow is going to be a bad day", then you're going to have a bad day. You're going to wake up with already a conscious decision that you didn't get enough sleep. We're going to change that, are you ready?
So he talked about some experiments. He did some experiment getting six hours of sleep, seven hours of sleep, eight hours of sleep, nine hours of sleep... It doesn't matter how many hours of sleep that he got, when he went to bed with a mindset that he's not going to get enough sleep, or I don't want to get up in the morning, or if he went to bed with a negative mindset, then it didn't matter how much sleep that he got, he woke up with an "I have to do" life mentality instead of an "I get to do life". And then he switched it... He went to bed and he said, "I'm going to go to bed at six, seven, eight, nine or ten, but I'm going to go to bed telling myself, I can't wait to get up in the morning"... I'm going to have a great night's sleep, I'm going to wake up rested and energized because I get to drink my ketones or my coffee or workout. I get to read, see my family, do my job, and be a blessing to others. It's a mindset, so when he woke up in the mornings after those nights that he had that shift of "I get to wake up", "I have enough sleep", he then woke up energized. He woke up to live his life, to be that person that he wanted to be, because he shifted one thing. I get these messages all the time, "Stephanie, how do you have such a positive mindset?"...
And I say, "I'm thankful I start my day off with gratitude". I get up in the morning with an excitement to read, to inspire you, to share with my kids, to teach the world, and to just enjoy the things that I have around me. And if you go, "I don't have what you have, I don't have what she has, or I don't have what he has"... You also need to change your perspective.
We're not looking at other people's lives out of jealousy, or that they have more than me, then you need to stop following that person. If I make you jealous, or envious, I'm super sorry. We have bad days as well, I have four children and four dogs, my dogs drives me crazy, and I know I shouldn't say that. Your words are powerful, my dogs are a blessing, they're so great and so obedient. Every time that you hear yourself, say something that should not be said, I reject that. I need to speak life over my dogs, but I am too human. And remember Facebook and social media as a highlight reel. So here's what I need you to know, stop comparing your life to somebody else's. Like "I wish I had that", then work towards that. But all we're focusing on right now is your mindset before you go to bed, and when you get up. Not "I wish I had somebody else's life", but what's in your life that you can be thankful for.
And if you don't have anything, then we're going to figure it out. Because you're waking up in the morning and you're breathing. If you have kids, be thankful that you have kids, because some people don't and can't have children. If you're married, some people pray every single night before they go to bed to find a spouse. If you have a job, be thankful. Maybe you don't love it, but there's got to be something that you can be thankful for in your job. If you have a home, there are people that do not have homes. It's a mindset shift. So he goes on and just says simply this "You get to wake up and feel energized in the morning if you choose to". All right, he said "What I found was whether I got nine, eight, seven, six, five four hours of sleep, I consciously decided before I went to bed that I was going to get up and have the perfect amount of sleep.
So stop counting your hours before you go to bed stop saying oh, I have to I want you to get up in the morning. Here's your action step, I'm going to give you a little bit of a visual. It's about getting out of bed with a purpose. A purpose not because you have to, but because you genuinely want to.
It's a decision every single time, so what I want you to do... Before you go to bed tonight, I want you to get out some post it notes. And whatever is the first thing that you see in the morning, maybe you have to take this post it now and put it on your phone because it's sitting next to your bed. So you can't hit the snooze button, but it says Good morning. I want you to write yourself a little reminder that says I get to get up today. Smile, and maybe right next to that post it note, you can post something that says this... "It's time to work out, It's time to read, it's time to drink my ketones, It's time to be with my family, it's time to be thankful". Maybe the only thing right now for you is, you just need a reminder that you're alive. And if that's all you're thankful for right now, then that's a lot to be thankful for. So my action step for you, if you choose to accept it...
Get up in the morning or to go to bed tonight. Write yourself a little note, put it, wherever you're going to see it in the morning, on your alarm clock, on your phone, or on your nightstand, that says "Good morning". Maybe it just says "I get to", or "what do I get to do today?". Maybe you should write yourself like "What are you thankful for?"... Remind yourself and get into a habit of just quoting something in your mind. Here's the deal, it's exactly what he says, he's going to give you some more strategic basic "do this, do this, do this". But it's going to start with your mindset, if you're not going to go to bed with a thankful and grateful heart, and with the mindset that I get to get up in the morning...
You don't need to count your hours, you don't need eight hours of sleep. If you can get up in the morning, control your morning and own your morning, you will own your day. You'll feel more accomplished, more energized, more alive, and you're going to reach your goals, and create systems. That's what we're here to do for you.
So for those of you who were like "Tell me what to eat for breakfast", just private message me and I will tell you. I'll help you with intermittent fasting, and with all of the questions you have. How much water you should drink, how do I start this lifestyle... That's the easiest part but the most important part is to get your mindset right. That's why we're reading on this page. If you don't want to tune into the reading, it's totally fine.
But I want you to know that if you can get your mindset right, you're not going to go through that cycle that I talked about earlier. Going after a goal, reaching a goal, hitting the goal, and letting everything go because you reach the goal. If you don't have the mindset, you will come back crabby, angry, gained all the weight back and then we have to start over. Don't be that person, and the only way you're not going to be that person is if you read something, or tune in here or let me help you. So, that's what I've got for you today. I hope you guys have an incredible day. Now it's up to you to take the action and do it. So, have a wonderful day. Continue to tune into the page.
I'm always here to help. We'll talk to you soon. Bye, everybody.
