"How you think, how you be, and how you do in your life will determine what you have in your life. One thing is for sure, negative thoughts do not produce positive results" ~ Keith Craft
Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie and we are diving into "Your Divine Fingerprint" by Pastor Keith Craft.
What's your favorite day of the week?
Our daughter, she's 15, and she was walking on the treadmill this morning. And she said, "I love Mondays. I love the thought of starting fresh and getting on a routine and getting things done".
We're ending Chapter 3 and diving into chapter 4. I'm going to give you some takeaways, or just something to think about throughout your day. There are two super important things to help you succeed in life. It's the books you read and the people that you surround yourself with.
It's you working on your mindset and self-development. It's realizing that the books you read and the people that you are around, actually play a factor in your fat loss.
WHAT SHAPES YOUR LIFE?
The end of chapter three brings awareness to what shapes your life. Pastor Keith wants you to realize that you can shape your life, you don't just let things happen to you. You don't just let the world, circumstances, and people affect you.
THINK BE DO (Chapter 4)
"You need to understand the process called your think be do. How you think, how you be, and how you do in your life will determine what you have in your life".
What do I want for this year?
Have you set goals?
Are you creating new habits?
Are you getting up in the morning?
Do you have a different system you're working on?
I love to say we're doing a lifestyle, but in reality, it actually starts with a diet. And then as you do it consistently over time, it creates a lifestyle. Oftentimes people feel like they can't recreate their lives. "I'm too young", "I'm too old", or "It's too late for me"... No! That's not the case at all. Here are a couple of questions you need to ask yourself...
THINK BE DO...
"You need to understand why you exist. You need to understand how to utilize your fingerprint to make your masterpiece. Exercising your 1% everywhere that you go, you need to start taking the first steps. Performance with excellence"...
Why do you exist?
What are you doing to fulfill and create the results you want for your life?
What are you called to do?
THINK + BE + DO = HAVE
"As I think so I feel. As I feel so I do. As I do so I have"
As soon as you have that awareness and understanding that your thoughts are powerful and they create the feelings and actions that you do. Then ultimately, it will become the result of what you have.
If you feel like you haven't started anything, or accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. I want to challenge you to start with, "What are you thinking about in the morning?", or "Where is your mindset?"...
POWER OF THINKING
How important are your thoughts?
"One thing is for sure, negative thoughts do not produce positive results".
If you're sitting here and you're not in a positive mindset space, you didn't work on your mindset this morning, your Monday didn't go the way that you wanted it to go. You can change that!
Your morning doesn't have to define the rest of your day.
"Picture this, your thoughts are like a plane approaching an airport. Your mind is the control tower and the landing strip is your heart. And as the plane (your thoughts) begin to approach the airport, the pilot radios the control tower (your mind) and asks for permission to land. The controller (you) is in the control tower (your mind), and you say "No! The plane (your thoughts) is never allowed to land in your heart".
"The Bible says that 'As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is'"...
I love that analogy that every time a thought comes in, it's like a plane, the plane comes into your mind, and you can decide if it's going to land on your heart. You can decide if you're going to say YES or NO.
REJECT THE LIES!
Our girls are walking through this as one of our daughters, Eliza, asked me the other day, "Mom, if I have a negative thought in my mind, how do I get it out?"...
You can either sit and dwell on it, or you can distract yourself. You can say a different phrase, you can pray for it to go away. You are in control. You're either going to let it sit in your heart, take it in, dwell on it, and let it control your day.
Or you can say "NO! You don't get to land on my landing strip", "You don't get to go into my heart", or "You don't get to define my day, who I am, or how my day is going"...
There are people, environments, and things that are going to try to come into your mind to create a negative mind space, ruin your day, or create negative self-talk. You have to say NO! You have to decide now!
I love this conversation because I've realized the power of your thoughts. I have it every single day. I sometimes have self-doubt or comparison, and all I do is say "No! I'm not comparing myself to that person", "I don't need to have self-doubt", "I know how to switch my mindset", "I know to take some time to breathe and read", "I know that I'm not in comparison with anybody else but myself"...
I know these things, I've been reading and teaching these things for seven years. And yet, I still have to walk through them every single day. It's a choice. You choose to get up and own your day and thoughts. You can choose what goes into your mind or what you allow to stay in your life.
You can choose not to believe that lie. You can reject that. Somebody said something to our daughter yesterday, and she said, "I reject that"... I actually reject a lot of things because our thoughts are important.
Pastor Keith is going to dive into "Thinking", "Being" and "Doing", and it will create what you have in life. I want you to realize and understand the power of your thoughts.
Today, that is your reminder! Pay attention to what's going on in your mind, what you are accepting, and what you are rejecting. You don't need to accept or agree with anything that's negative in your life, or the things that people are speaking over you. You can actually disagree with all of that.
You can switch that by listening to good podcasts, reading good books, listening to people online, and having an accountability group.
For example, we have this intermittent fasting group. You might have people in your sphere of influence that can't believe you're trying to lose weight. And this could be your family or even friends. They might say "You'll never be that size", "It's in our family and genes", or "I can't believe you're doing that again"...
But when you switch environments, and you get around people who believe you can do it, you will believe it too. Know that you've got people that want to empower you, believe in you, help you, and guide you on this journey. That's the Importance Of An Accountability Group. There are some incredible people that can help you along the way.
I want to be one of those people. And I'm going to start with your mindset because if you can't get that under control, you will spiral out of control and sabotage yourself.
Either you will have to start over or you won't start at all, and you'll just give up.
So that's why we go through books, and we will continue to go through more of it tomorrow. Today, all I want is for you to have an awareness and understanding. Take some notes on what you're thinking about. Pay attention to everything you're reading, watching, and listening to. What is going into your mind, and are you allowing it to plant a seed? Or are you controlling the things that you believe?
It'd be interesting to know what you find out today because there are so many things coming at you and you might start detecting the lies from the good. Some of you are doing incredible, and you've got your mindset down. It's consistency over time, that will determine if you'll hit your results or reach your goal.
