Full Episode Transcript
Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page, we're diving into The Power of our Words, one of my very favorite topics. It's chapter six in the book. I truly believe that if you can change this one thing that comes out of your mouth. You can shift your mindset, you can accomplish goals, and you can change your environment by this one topic that we're talking about in chapter six. So I'm going to go over all of chapter six of "Dream it. Pin it. Live it" by Terri Savelle Foy.
It's an incredible book, it's going to help you dream and it's going to help you goal set. It's going to help you realize that what comes out of your mouth is super important.
So all of chapter six is pretty simple to go through, it's only five or six pages and we're going to do all of that today. So if you're following along in the book, and you want to read along, or you want to make sure that we're on the same page, that's where we're at, chapter six. Some of you requested the pages, we're on page sixty five. And as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? Are you reading or watching? Either way is great!
For those of you who have asked what the next book is, we're going to go through "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, starting in October. We're probably going to end up going through it October and a good part of November. Terri Savelle Foy also quotes Napoleon Hill, author of "Think and Grow Rich". She quotes him in chapter six, we'll talk about him today. "Think and Grow Rich", is our next book. You can grab it, you can join us, you can go along with me and everybody else here, starting in October...
So chapter six started out with Terri saying "Your vision board is now designed".
Don't feel like you missed a step because when I first read this book, we did not create our vision boards till the end. So I hope that you're writing out your goals, maybe you're printing out pictures, and that you're starting to dream. And the goal in the book is to pick out Ten S.M.A.R.T. goals, Ten desires, Ten dreams that you can accomplish in the next twelve to eighteen months. I had said it would be awesome, if you picked three to five things that you can actually accomplish by the end of the year. Do you think you can do that?
I'm going to show you my board, but it is not done because I did not finish it yet when I first did the Vision Boards. Now I'm going to make it way better... This is how simple my board is at the moment, like it's just a big white canvas.
It's a big white canvas, so you can paint on it or you can do whatever you want. You can get a cork board, or you can get a poster board. You can even just have a piece of paper and pin your pictures out.
So on our board, I have to write a book. I think I could do that the next eighteen months if I actually focused. My husband wanted to turn our water Lake into a little bit of a waterpark, so we have a waterpark or like a wakeboarding Park. We have dreams of doing some investments, so we have that on here. I'm praying over healing over my eyes. So there's things that physically is not going to be me, but I'm going to believe for it. We have a podcast, maybe doing a podcast in the next twelve to eighteen months. I talked about leading worship, which actually I got to help do for our church the last couple weeks. But I talked about doing things with my daughters. There's business goals I have on here.
I looked at this yesterday because I was going to show all of you my board. And I thought I can do way better than this, way better. So I'm going back to my board, and I'm adding to it because I looked at it and I was not inspired. And if I'm not inspired by my board, clearly I need to rethink what's on there.
I'm curious, do you have a vision board or have you started creating one? It's okay if you have not. Here's what chapter six is all about. Alright! She says "Okay! Your board is created or you're in the process of creating your board. One of the keys to accomplishing what's on the board is you need to remove all negative talk. All like self defeating talk. The words that are coming out of your mouth are super important"... And I love this topic because we talk about it in our home, all the time. We talk about Truth or Trash. For example, one of our daughters wasn't happy yesterday with school. She said something and we said "Do you really want that to happen?" I don't remember how she phrased it. But I was like "Do you really want that? Do you want that in your life? Do you want that seed planted?"... Because what you should think about is, every time you speak, it's biblical and you can prove it scientifically.
There's some little videos that we watched with a group of ladies with our church. And in that video she said, there's an experiment scientifically (and we've done this with our girls years ago) where you take three containers of rice. So you fill up like a little glass jar, and you just put white rice in it. One of the containers you just let it sit all by itself and you do nothing with it. You just kind of go put it on a shelf by itself. One container you put in your kitchen. Well, there's two more of them and you're going to just put them in different areas of the house.
Every day, you go and you speak junk over one of the rice glasses. "You're not good enough", "You'll never amount to anything" or whatever you want to say to that little jar. It's like a negative jar. The other jar, you go and say "Yes! You're amazing, you are strong", "You have greatness inside of you"... So you speak negative to one rice jar, she talks about this in the videos. You speak positive to the other rice jar and for the last one of them, you just ignore all together...
The jar that you spoke negatively to? It gets completely moldy, completely black and it gets disgusting. The one that you spoke positively to, did not get disgusting like the other one, even though they've all been in the jar the same time. So you can see the progression... Negative talk is completely moldy. The one that's ignored is like partial and the one that's talked to positively is the least moldy of all of them.
I know it sounds crazy, she talks about it in the video. We've actually done it, and it works. So if you want to do a crazy cool experiment, do it with your kids. You can even YouTube it, you can google: "Rice experiment. Power of words"... Anyways, your words are powerful. So in here, she says "You cannot talk defeat and expect Victory. Your words create power".
So for those of you who wake up in the morning, and your mindset is already defeating. And you're saying things like "I will never amount to anything", "I'm always late"... Then you're always going to be late. Then you say things like "I never", "I always choose wrong", "That's never going to be me", "Nope! We're always going to be in debt". Yes, yes and yes.
You get what you speak, because therefore you look for that and that's what you're going to create in your life.
I love this topic! Have you ever noticed, we've talked about this all summer and we've talked about this in other books too. Most inspirational, self help books, however you want to say it, talks about the power of your words. Because when you speak, that's coming from your heart, that's going to create your actions that's going to ultimately define what you get in life.
The author said "It is vitally important that you silence the negative mind chatter taking place from the moment that you wake up"... Right away! That's what I talk about every single morning when you get up. You need to own your morning, just like that book that we did earlier this summer. The Miracle Morning, "Own your morning, Own your day".
Take and extra thirty minutes to an extra hour to get your mindset right. Move your body, or do all of the things you need to do before you go to work. Before your kids wake up, before anybody else has time to speak into your life. You have to do that for yourself. every day. Because if you don't, you're going to have your morning and your day own you. She says "When your negative thoughts are entertained in your mind long enough, they will eventually start coming out of your mouth".
So you can think it and you might say, "Well, I'm not saying it". But eventually it's going to come out of your mouth... So she tells a ton of stories in this chapter. "Your life tomorrow will be determined by the words you speak today"...
So every time you say something, my encouragement to you is take a second and think if you really want that.
And if you don't? You better reject that and say "I change my mind", "I am strong and I can be on time", "I choose better foods and I am in control of my life"... So she gives you a whole bunch of negative things that you might be saying to yourself. "I'll never finished college", "I'll never amount to anything", "I'll never lose the weight"...
And she said "You need to start speaking, even if you don't believe it, the positive things that you want to see in your life. Do not be trapped by your words. What's coming out of your mouth, has everything to do with where you are today and the experiences you're experiencing"... Do you guys agree with me? Yes or No? I'd love to know... Maybe you're one that you've actually changed this. Has any of you changed the course all summer?
Has anybody said "Yes, I've actually applied this and it actually works", "Yes, I actually am more positive", "I see more goals coming towards me", or "I'm accomplishing more things because I'm actually paying attention to what's coming out of my mouth"... And you can teach this to your kids, it's super important.
So she actually tells a ton of stories of people that you would recognize, famous people who have actually spoken their death into existence. She talks about an NBA player, a rapper, she talks about different people who have been recorded, speaking death over themselves and have died from what they've spoken. Some of you might be saying I'm crazy. I'm not crazy! I do want not receive that. It is just truth. It's biblical, and scientific. There's people that have been documented saying things and it has come to pass.
If you're sitting there thinking "I don't know", my challenge to you today is just simply pay attention to what you're speaking all day long. Be consciously aware of the silly things, like running out of the house and saying "I'm always late". No! you don't always have to be late.
You should instead say this "I'm going to be on time", "I am an on time person", "I am prompt and ready to go"... So she goes on, and she talks about when you start switching your language, it's going to feel weird. It's going to feel foreign, you're going to feel so awkward. And it's okay, because the more you speak it, the more you're going to believe it, the more you're going to achieve it.
We say that little saying "As I think, so I feel. As I feel, so I do. As I do, so I have"... As you think, so you feel. Your emotions are tied up into what you're thinking. As you feel, so you do. Which means you speak or you take action. And as you do, negative or positively, so you have. That's what you're going to get. All right! "Your Dreams could be delayed because of what you're saying"... She continues to tell more stories, I'm going through the entire chapter six. She gives you different things and she says "I want you to start declaring what you want". So we're going to take our vision boards, we're going to start speaking over them and we're going to say what you're seeing. This is giving you a visual, right? Now your words come next. What are you going to say over that? "Yes, I am an author", "Yes, I'm going to be", "I have a strong voice to where I can lead people into worship", "I get to do it with my daughters". "Yes, we are going to be financially free", "We are going to be great investors in this next twelve months". Not I'm always going to be in debt. So start changing the words that you're saying.
Alright! So she gives you some different ideas, different declarations to say over yourself. She actually gives you an action step, she says "Make a list of positive declarations (you can simply look at your vision board and write those down). Structure your declarations in the present tense"...
I am strong, I am fit and I can run that marathon. I choose better foods, I am a cook. Some of you are like I hate cooking, don't say that! I am a great cook for my family. I will be out of debt, I am debt free. I have a great relationship with my spouse or my kids... "State your dreams in the positive and speak them out continuously". So she talks about writing out your goals, then we have our vision board, and now you need to start speaking to them. That was chapter six "The power of your words"...
I think it's super important and we do it so much in our home, our kids do it all the time. If one of us speaks something negatively, any of our daughters will call us on it. We all do it together. Do you really want that? Do you want to plant that seed? No! Okay, then let's change it.
Or if somebody speaks something over me, or somebody speaks something over one of our daughters, we will easily go "Nope, we reject that", "We will not take that seed", "Nope!"... I don't know if you guys have heard this story I've told before, but I'll just tell it very briefly. So we have four daughters, and every time I go places, especially when they were little. When I would have all four in the grocery cart when they were babies, and then I would have people come up to me. Every time I was in public, they would say "Oh, four girls I cannot", "Oh my goodness, poor you" or "You just wait till they get older"... I still have it now like "You just wait". And there would be times where I would walk away and under my breath I would go "I reject that", "My daughters are going to be amazing", "Our daughters are super respectful", "Our daughters are incredible", "We're going to have a great relationship with our daughters"...
There was one time I remember where I was sitting in Hy-Vee. I was walking down the organic aisle, this little old lady, she probably was eight years old, white hair and had a little cane. She said "Oh, you just wait. You just wait till they get to be teenagers"... And I was so sick of hearing it, I said to her "I reject that, I reject what you just said. Our daughters are amazing"... And she looked at me and she was like "Oh! yeah!, I don't think she knew what to say.
But I was frustrated because you don't speak trash over somebody else. You don't have the authority to speak over my life. You shouldn't be speaking over somebody else's life unless it's positive. So just because somebody says something over you doesn't mean it's true, and you don't have to receive it.
More often than not, you're speaking over yourself. You speak to yourself in your mindset, negative or positive mindset, every single day. So with that, we went through chapter six, and we're talking about the power of our words. My encouragement to you and my action step today is "Pay attention to what you're speaking over your life, over your kids, over your finances, over your relationships, over your food, over your weight and over your job. Pay attention". That is your action step today. All right! I hope that made sense. I hope you have an incredible day. You are amazing, you are worthy and you can completely take control of your life. You can see the fat loss, you can be on time and you can wake up. You will overpower those bad habits if you tune in every single day and if you just take control of your mindset. Start reading! Even if it's small amounts today. Our friend came over to work out and he said "I started reading one or two pages". I was like "That's great!" Read one page a day, it's a start to get your mindset under control. So I hope you guys have a great day. Thank you for tuning in, and as always, ask questions.
I'm always here to help and we'll talk to you soon.
