Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. We officially started the book yesterday, and we're going to keep going. Let me ask you a question,
"ᴡʜᴀᴛ ɪꜱ ᴏɴᴇ ᴛʜɪɴɢ ʏᴏᴜ'ʀᴇ ᴛʜᴀɴᴋꜰᴜʟ ꜰᴏʀ?". ʏᴏᴜ ꜱʜᴏᴜʟᴅ ᴀʟᴡᴀʏꜱ ꜱᴛᴀʀᴛ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴍᴏʀɴɪɴɢ ᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴅᴀʏ ᴡɪᴛʜ ɢʀᴀᴛɪᴛᴜᴅᴇ. ɪᴛ ʜᴇʟᴘꜱ ɢᴇᴛ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ᴀɴᴅ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴍɪɴᴅꜱᴇᴛ ᴏɴ ᴛʀᴀᴄᴋ. ɪ'ᴍ ᴛʜᴀɴᴋꜰᴜʟ ꜰᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜ, ꜰᴏʀ ɢʀᴇᴀᴛ ᴘʀᴏᴅᴜᴄᴛɪᴠᴇ ᴍᴏʀɴɪɴɢꜱ, ᴀɴᴅ ʜᴏᴍᴇꜱᴄʜᴏᴏʟɪɴɢ.
If you're at work, you're driving, you're at home, or whatever you're doing, I want to give you something to think about today. The book is called, "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell. We're ending chapter one, and yesterday, we talked about what could cause people not to grow, or not work on themselves and their mindset.
Ｇｒｏｗｔｈ Ｇａｐ Ｔｒａｐｓ:
And now at the very end of chapter one, he said, "Here's how you make the transition to intentional growth". At the beginning of this book, his mentor asked him one question, "What are you doing with your life and what is your personal growth look like?" John said, "I work really hard" And his mentor said, "That's not personal growth".

How long will this take? His mentor said, "That should not be the question you're asking me" Instead, you should be asking, "How far can I go?"
Some of you might be here doing the keto diet because it's a new year and you have new goals. You're here to get to the swimsuit season or that wedding because you want to look a certain way at a certain time. I don't want you to set a date on your lifestyle or your health. I want it to be ever-flowing forever and ever.
That's what he talked about, he said mindset and personal growth should never end. Just like this lifestyle, you shouldn't just get to the swimsuit season, the wedding season, or the vacation and then stop. Tweak some things, but get back on track and make it a lifestyle so that you will feel great forever. Mindset and Personal growth are the same, you shouldn't just read a book and then be done. You should be ever-flowing, ever-changing, and ever working towards the better you...
I need you to ask yourself these questions:
Where do you want to go in your life?
What direction do you want to go?
What's the furthest that you can ever imagine going?
"ᴀɴꜱᴡᴇʀɪɴɢ ᴛʜᴇꜱᴇ Qᴜᴇꜱᴛɪᴏɴꜱ ᴡɪʟʟ ɢᴇᴛ ʏᴏᴜ ꜱᴛᴀʀᴛᴇᴅ ᴏɴ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴘᴇʀꜱᴏɴᴀʟ ɢʀᴏᴡᴛʜ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴇʏ. ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴇꜱᴛ ʏᴏᴜ ᴄᴀɴ ʜᴏᴘᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴅᴏ ɪɴ ʟɪꜰᴇ ɪꜱ ᴛᴏ ᴍᴀᴋᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴏꜱᴛ ᴏᴜᴛ ᴏꜰ ᴡʜᴀᴛᴇᴠᴇʀ ʏᴏᴜ'ᴠᴇ ʙᴇᴇɴ ɢɪᴠᴇɴ. ʏᴏᴜ ᴅᴏ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ʙʏ ɪɴᴠᴇꜱᴛɪɴɢ ɪɴ ʏᴏᴜʀꜱᴇʟꜰ ᴍᴀᴋɪɴɢ ʏᴏᴜʀꜱᴇʟꜰ ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴇꜱᴛ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ʏᴏᴜ ᴄᴀɴ.

This book is great, my hope is to give you something to think about every day. Are you giving it your best? Look at every opportunity, conversation, distraction, or barrier and ask yourself, "What am I supposed to learn here?", "How can I make this better?", or "How can I be adaptable?"
Ｄｏ Ｉｔ Ｎｏｗ
His mentor told him, "Before you get out of bed every morning and when you climb into bed before you fall asleep every day, I want you to say this phrase fifty times a day. "Do it now", "Do it now" over and over again".
That way it will get it into your subconscious mind, that I'm going to do what I set out to do. I'm going to do it now, not later. He said, "The greatest danger you face at this moment is the idea that you will make intentional growth a priority later. Don't fall into the trap". He talked about a magazine that he read and this is what it said, "Later is one of those dream killers. One of those countless obstacles that we put up to derail our chances of success. The diet that starts tomorrow, the job hunt that happens eventually, the pursuit of the life dream that begins with someday combined with other self-imposed roadblocks and they lock us on autopilot. Why do we do this to ourselves? Why don't we take action now?"

The reason people don't go after better and makeup excuses like, "It's not perfect, "I don't know how to do it", "Later, I'll do it later". Later, will kill you're better.

He said, "Identify what you're afraid of. Why aren't you doing what you're feeling called to do, what you want to do, and where your dreams want to lead you? What is holding you back?.
We also have faith. You're going to decide fear or faith. Which emotion will you allow to be stronger? Your answer is important because the stronger emotion wins. I want to encourage you to feed your faith and starve your fear"...
I know we hear that all the time, "Fear over Faith". But it's very much a conscious decision. Will you feed into fear, which will result in the words that you speak, and the things that you do or don't do. Or will you feed into your faith, by reading, getting an accountability partner, finding a mentor, watching good movies and good podcasts? What you feed your mind with will come out in the words you speak, and the words you speak are going to result in the things you believe in yourself. It doesn't take a long time to figure out if a person is fear-based or faith-based, negative or positive, and where their mindset is. All you have to do is talk to them for a little bit and their words, and their character will reveal where their mindset is. I challenge you to watch what you're speaking to yourself, but also to others around you.
"People tend to get into the rut of life. They get into an easy groove, and then they don't try to break out of the groove because it's easy. Even when it takes them in the wrong direction"
If you were looking at your life, you might say, "I really want to go that way but it seems hard. So I'm just going to stay in the normal because it's easy". He said, "What does the accidental growth look like versus intentional. Accidental growth is a plan to start tomorrow. Intentional is, I insist to start today.
Waiting for growth to come
I might make a mistake
I'm going to depend on luck.
I quit easy
I don't finish
I fall into bad habits
I talk big but don't follow through
I play it safe
I think like a victim (victim mentality)
I Stopped learning after graduation

Insists on starting today
Takes complete responsibility to grow
Often learns before mistakes happen
Relies on hard work, not luck
Perseveres, long and hard
Fights for good habits
Follows through and finishes, not just starts
Thinks like a Learner
You grow by just learning, and learning doesn't need to be hours a day. Learning can be five or ten minutes, sitting down and reading one page. Being intentional about the words that you speak or learning how to do something and not say "I can't do it". It's all in the mindset.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said this, "Once philosophy is not best expressed in words, it is expressed in the choices one makes".
We tell our kids this often... I can teach you, and I can guide you. But ultimately your choices will determine your life, good or bad. And you can look at things that have happened in your life, your friends' lives, or people around you. If they're not in a great place right now, you can go all the way back in time, and you can tell them, "Here are the choices you made along the way and there are consequences to those choices".

Let's choose your hard. Like, it's hard to say no to the doughnut, but it's also hard to be unhealthy. It's hard to work on your marriage, but it's hard to be divorced. It talks about different spokes of life, finances, marriage, relationships, and physical health. You choose your hard, what would you rather do?

You must go out of your way to seize growth opportunities as if your future depends on it. Why? Because it does. Growth doesn't just happen, you have to go after it"...
You have to want it and you have to seize it. You have to be intentional. If you have not picked a word this year. Maybe that should be a word, "Intentional"...
This is the book, "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell. We'll go through it every single day, and if you have questions, just reach out. Scroll through the page, there are more recipes to share later today. Morning live videos are for working on your mindset. And the live video in the afternoon or the evening is about a Keto tip or trick. We will also talk about the CORE 4 challenge, which we'll be doing all year long.
I hope you have an incredible day, I'm always here to help. Go be productive, have awareness of your choices every day. To whom much is given much as expected. You reap what you sow. I hope you have a great day. We'll talk to you soon!
