Full Episode Transcript:
Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page, we are diving into the book "Dream it. Pin it. Live it" by Terri Savelle Foy. We're going to talk about the "Power of Habits". We're diving into habit number one, "Focusing on Listening". How do we get to our dreams? How do we accomplish goals? How do we see this vision board come to pass? We're going to focus on a lot of things. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? What are you loving about the book? I'm in a different spot, because first of all, anybody workout this morning? I already got my workout done... If you're brand new to the page, post new below. I would love to say hi, and help you with your goals. Second of all, I look like this because I work out every morning and then I come and talk to you. So how's your morning going and where are you tuning in from? I'm tuning in from Minnesota. Yesterday was a rainy day and today is a beautiful sunny day. We have four daughters, we homeschool by choice.
I love to read, I love to help people on their Keto, low carb journey. Not everybody's journey is the same, everybody is different. So you've got to figure out what works best for your body.
We talk about a lot of things here on the page. Whether it is recipes, Keto tips or tricks, different things you're looking for. Every morning we talk about mindset, about books and about why it's important to read. I'm going to actually mention all of these books today, we've already gone through these two "Atomic Habits" by James Clear & "Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod. We're going to go through "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill in October.
But the one we're currently going through is the one that we're creating a vision board. Oftentimes you'll hear people say, "Let's create a vision board" and you do it at the beginning of the year. But then by February, you forget what you put on your vision board. So we're not going to wait till January 1, 2022. We're going to create it right now, and that's what we've been doing.
We've been talking about what it means to create a vision board. What goals look like, how do we write these things down, and how do we see them come to pass?...
So I'd love to know, what is one goal you are putting on your vision board? I want you to share. I wrote a whole bunch of different things on my board, and one of them is to write a book or do a podcast. I already have the name, and every day I say "I've got to start this". So I have to start it, it's already on my board. I also have our family, my husband, I have some financial goals. We have some investment goals we want to accomplish on there. We have some travel goals, we have lots of different things, goals and dreams.
What is one thing? Even if you don't have your board created, even if you're brand new and you're like what in the world? What is one thing you would put on a board. I would challenge you to do something that could be accomplished if you followed a S.M.A.R.T system in the next twelve to eighteen months. So this is the book we're going through right now, "Dream it. Pin it. Live it" by Terri Savelle Foy. If you're following along page by page, we are on page one hundred sixteen (p.116).
We already went through a little bit of chapter nine, and we're halfway or a few pages in. We already talked about the power of the people that you're around, and we've created a list of things you wanted to go through. If you've been actually following along in the book we've talked about routines. I'm also going to talk about some books that we have gone through earlier this summer. She says "You're going to have to be patient". Once you have your board created, be patient and consistently, visually focus on your board.
And we're writing down the goals that you want and are speaking out. So she says, here are some habits you're going to have to create as your board is done and as we're going to go through and see these boards come to pass. Now some of you have not started your board, but you can do that at the end of this book. We'll be done with this book by next week and then I'll walk you through how to create the board. She says habit number one... so as you're creating your board and as you're seeing it through, something that you really have to focus on is your mindset.
She said "Habit number One is focusing on Listening (page 116). The first habit to adapt into a routine is the habit of Listening".
She says to faith based building, motivational teachings, or I would say anything that inspires you. But inspiration can be different, because there are things that might inspire you and still can make you angry. You really have to pay attention to your emotions.
Something that's going to build up your faith, and build you up as a person. So you've got to find people that you can watch that will build you up and make you believe in yourself.
Not temporary motivation, but true inspiration. There's a difference... Motivation is temporary like "Yes! I can do that. I go and do it. I don't know how to keep myself going". Inspiration should consistently build you up and then eventually, you should be able to inspire yourself. You're going to take what you learn, you're going to put it in your mind and heart. Then you're going to take action on that inspiration....
So she says "This very well could be the missing ingredient that you need to see your dreams come to pass". She talks a lot about building the muscle of faith. How are you going to look at your vision board and how are you going to keep going after those goals and those dreams? You've got to have faith! How do you have faith? You've got to build it up! How do you build it up? You listen and you read. The second goal we'll talk about tomorrow is the power of reading, but today she says you have to focus on Listening. Listening to the people around you, or changing the people that you're listening to. By the way the author's name is Teri Savelle, and she's super fun. You can follow her online.
She says "I became a woman on a quest to build my faith as quickly as possible. Building your faith is a choice, just as building your muscles"...
So if you're going to get up, work out and work on your food and you've got that down. Then you get to work on building your mindset, your faith and watching the people that you're following, because that is also like building your muscle. If your mindset isn't built up, then everything else could easily fall to the wayside just because your mindset is not on track.
"As you listen to people, your faith will grow"... As you listen to faith based or people that inspire you. I'll give you an example, she says "Let's not waste any more time"...
This is super interesting, and if there's anything you listen to, listen to this and see if you fall into this trap. "Studies have shown that meant the average American watches more than five hours of television every single day. That means that by the time you were sixty years old, you have wasted fifteen years of your life glued to the box"... There's a lot of things I think about the television, and one of the things is just think of the word tele-vision. It's telling you what you should believe.
"Television", if you are so glued to that box that's behind me, and you're believing everything that it says, then you're letting it control your mind. Do not be one of those people that wastes fifteen years of their life, having that thing tell you what to do or what to believe. So if you have the awareness that you're spending too much time in front of the television, it's time to shut that thing down and start reading and listening to other things besides the crazy fake news. We don't need to watch that! So the average American is watching television shows that they have no interest in, that are not building their faith, gossip and terrible things"... What you're listening to and what you're watching? Is that building your faith? Is that helping you grow? I'm on Facebook and TikTok and you can't see the TV bits behind me over here. So then I have to ask "What are you watching?" Is it legitimately growing you, is it making you feel disgusted, or is it making you become a better person? I'm just asking, I have no idea what you watch clearly.
"The average person sleeps thirty minutes too late every day. The average person from eighteen to thirty four years old spends nearly four hours a day on social media. If you're desperate for change, you'll take desperate steps to change". That's good! That's good! "If you're desperate to change, you'll take desperate steps to change"...
Which means television goes away, it's fine to be on social media because I actually learned from a lot of people in social media. But don't just mindlessly scroll, I go to engage with my team. There's certain people I encourage, certain people I watch to learn from and then I'm done. Well, it's exactly what she says
"When you're desperate for change, you'll take desperate measures to change"... Nothing comes easy. Even your mindset, it takes time. It takes extra time to get up, to move your body, and to read. Somebody asked me yesterday, how are you getting so much reading in? And I'm like "I get up early. I simply get up"...
My husband this morning comes in and he's like "Are you ready to get up?" and I'm like "Ahhh, Yep!". I know what time I have to be up, I'm upstairs by six in the morning to work out. But I always push it a little bit and I kind of rolled over and say "Hmm, ha, yes! I'm going to get up!". I have a time to get up, but I still do it. So she says "Entrepreneur Magazine conducted a research study on wealthy people versus poor people". That's just what she uses as a comparison, and she says "Wake up three hours early before work forty four percent (44%) of wealthy people, three percent (3%) of poor people"... And they had distinctions of what wealthy meant and what poor meant. And she says "Listens to audiobooks during their commute. Sixty three percent (63%) of wealthy people, five percent (5%) of poor people. Who reads thirty minutes or more every day? Eight percent (80%) of wealthy people, two percent (2%) of poor people. Who exercises at least four times a day, four times a week? Seventy six percent (76%) of wealthy people, twenty three percent (23%) of poor people. Who watches reality TV? Seven (7%) of the wealthy people, seventy eight percent (78%) of the poor people. Who believes good habits create opportunity? Eighty percent (80%) of the wealthy, (4%) poor...
Does this make sense? You follow the habits of the successful. Successful doesn't have to be based on money, it's just what they evaluated it at. But if you want something in life, the bottom line is this successful people have adapted successful habits.
She says "If you want to be successful, study successful people. If you want to be rich, study the rich. If you want to be skinny, study the people that are skinny or people that are in shape"... Basically, the bottom line is, with the goals that you are wanting to achieve, study the people that have already done it.
We talked about being like the five people that you surround yourself with. If they're all either working towards the same goals with you, but haven't successfully accomplished them. They can still do this with you, or go on the journey with you. But you've got to find somebody else that has already done it. So like in our business, we follow, we learn and we take advice from people that have already done it. I have people that are alongside of me, that are going with me. I'm learning from them as they do things, as they fail, as they learn and we all learn together.
But I'm not usually taking a lot of advice from them. I'm learning with them and growing. I'm taking advice from the people who's already done it, who's already walked through the minefield. I'm following them and I'm learning faster and going further because they've already done it. I don't have to step on the landmines, I can go over them because they said "Don't do that", "Nope, don't do that", "Go around that"... So when you follow somebody that's already done it, you can then go further and faster. Unless you decide, you're going to go with the five people you're around and you're all trying to do it by yourself. You might fail a lot more.
Failing isn't bad, and the only way you fail is if you quit when there's a problem. So here's the deal "As you listen to powerful words, inspiration, or following certain people, something begins to change in you. Your faith begins to grow. Develop your own plan for a personal growth by starting with a Routine of Listening. Experts suggest that you must listen to something sixteen times before it finally takes root"...
Sixteen times. I listen sometimes to the same messages, the same books, read the same chapters over and over again until I get it in me. It takes sixteen times of hearing something before you finally do it....
So she did a twenty one day challenge "I'm going to listen to somebody for twenty one days", "I'm going to listen to this podcast for twenty one days" and she says "I didn't want to stop listening"... So these last few pages one hundred sixteen to one hundred twenty is on Listening. Who are you listening to? What's guiding you? What do you need to stop watching, and take that five hours of TV a day, take the extra thirty minutes, get up early and read? Stop wasting time! Why are you wasting time?
People often say to me "I don't have time". You choose what you make time for, you choose what you spend your time on.
So let's evaluate your day. Figure it out, say you got a thirty minute commute. That's incredible! You can listen to thirty minutes of an audible book. I'm guessing all of you shower, or ladies when you put on your makeup or on your morning routine of the house. Even in the hustle and bustle, pop in an earbud. I put my phone up in the shower, and I listen. I put my phone up on the counter and I listen. I get up early before my kids get up, I listen and I read. You have time, even fifteen minutes. It doesn't have to be an hour, you don't have to sit in front of this book for an hour. It took me ten minutes to go through those three pages. You have time for what you make time for. So we said and I love this phrase, "As I think so I feel, As I feel so I do, As I do so I have".... As I think, so I feel. As I feel, so I do. As I do, so I have" Super powerful!
These are the books we went through this summer, they talk about habits, they talk about the morning, she's talking about creating a routine. If you have not read this book, it's super powerful, its called "The Miracle Morning". This book is incredible, we went through this book in June "Atomic Habits", by James Clear. Go through it, take notes, and take action.
Take action, read and work on your mindset. Anything that you want to accomplish is going to take discipline and time, but if you actually put in the work, it will work. If you put in the work, it will work.
We're going to go through "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill in October, it's going to change your life and it's super great. Otherwise, we're going through this book "Dream it. Pin it. Live it" and put in the work. Alright! As I think so I feel, As I feel so I do, As I do so I have. Get your eyes off of this television, and let's put in the work. So I hope that's helpful. Tomorrow we're going to talk about we're going to keep going, we'll create the vision boards by next week and then we'll keep going. So if you don't have to be where I'm at in the book, just so you know, the point is to read a couple pages and put it into action. The point is to read a couple pages and start dreaming.
You don't have to be where I'm at. We're going to keep moving work at your own pace. I just want to encourage you to do something. So I hope you're loving it at the beginning of the live I asked for you to share one dream one goal, one vision that would be on your board. I'd love for you to post that below share. What is one thing you're dreaming about. you're praying about you're hoping for you're going to put on your board you're writing down, doesn't have to come to pass in the next couple months in the next year to eighteen months. What is it? So I want to read one thing that you're dreaming for. That's it. I hope you have an incredible morning. Reach out with any questions you have. I'm always here to help and we'll talk to you soon.
