Let's Make Better Choices Everyday! (Dream It, Pin It, Live It! by Terri Savelle Foy)
"Develop your own plan for personal growth by starting a personal habit of listening. Experts suggest that you must listen to something 16 times before it finally takes root". ~Terri Savelle Foy
Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie. We're still going through "Dream It, Pin It, Live It" by Terri Savelle Foy. This is going to help you create S.M.A.R.T. goals and vision boards. This book will help you get set up for next year so that you know what you want and the things you're going to focus on.
Don't wait until January when most people just start thinking about it. And then all of a sudden it's February and you haven't done anything.
So I hope you hear something today and you take action on it. I hope that all of you sit down and take some time to think about important things...
What does our family want?
Where are we going?
What are some things that we can truly focus on?
"You get what you expect".
When you woke up this morning, did you expect to have a good day? In general, what do you expect about going to work, school, or the gym? Those things are going to determine how you look at life and your perspective.
What are you expecting?
So in this book, we have talked about setting S.M.A.R.T. goals and writing them down. I slacked a little bit this year, but I've got to get better. So as you are creating goals and vision boards, I hope that you're doing the actions.
Isn't it interesting how something great can happen to you, and then the next day you forget about it because you keep moving on with your day? I'm going to give you one more idea that can help you throughout next year.
We call it a Remember wall, you just have to get a big long piece of paper or poster board and tape or hang it on the back of one of your doors that's always shut.
You can write 2023 Remember Wall and then start with January. You can write anything that you don't want to forget for January, like if somebody blessed you with something. A miracle happened and you were probably able to accomplish this goal. It can be anything you're thankful for, that you don't want to forget.
So that if you encounter a bad day and nothing great is happening for you, try to reject that. If you're your mindset is spiraling out of control, I want you to always back and look at your Remember Wall. This will help encourage you, and remind you that it has been a great year.
You will have something that will remind you of the things you have been blessed with and the things you have accomplished.
Remember, those moments won't last forever, so you need to choose your attitude every day because you have been blessed with another day. Congratulations! I hope that you've walked through your morning with an attitude of gratitude and that you make better choices every day. Those choices will help create your future.
Do you choose to eat well, or make an excuse?
Do you choose to go to the gym, or make an excuse?
Are you going to have a positive attitude and encourage those around you, or be a whiner all day?
It's your choice!
All right! Going back to the book, maybe you'll hear something that's going to help you today. So after you have written out your goals and created your vision boards, The author has a couple of habits that she talked about...
We're going to go over habit one today, and it's focusing on listening. So after you've created your vision board, and you're sitting there thinking "What do I do?"... I think this is super powerful because I did it last night as I was coaching my team.
"The first habit to adapt into your new routine is the habit of "Listening". Listening to motivational teachers, or listening to people that inspire you. This very well could be the missing ingredient that you need to see your dreams come true".
"Studies have shown that the average American watches more than five hours of television every single day. That means that by the time you're 60 years old, you have wasted 15 years of your life glued to a box".
"The average person sleeps 30 minutes too late every day. The average person 18 to 34 (years old) spends nearly four hours a day on social media. If you're desperate for change, you're going to have to be desperate to make the changes".
