Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie and we're going to dive into, "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell.
"Ｔｈｅ Ｌａｗ ｏｆ Ｐａｉｎ"
This is actually my favorite topic because the whole concept of this law is around your EQ or your emotional quotient. Before we start, I'd like for you to know that we go through a book as a community, every single day. This is to help you understand your mindset and to help get your mindset on track. So you can make better choices and decisions throughout your day.
You have the power of reading, listening to podcasts, finding a mentor, or asking yourself good questions. Decision-making is important and that was the message I sent out earlier today.

The reason we do that is if we're ever traveling and we have some extra time, I can send you guys a message, and maybe we can meet up for lunch if it works for you. If ever we're traveling, and you are at the place that we're traveling to, then you can send me a text message, and maybe we can meet so I can get to know more about you.

Do you feel like you own your morning?
When you get up, are you in control?
Do you get up and have enough time for yourself?
Are you able to think, breathe and not feel like you're shuffled throughout your whole day?
Do you feel like your day is making choices for you?
If you don't feel like you own your morning, that might be the reason why you are not reaching your goals. Own your morning, own your day. Again, the book is called "The Miracle Morning".

But I wanted to go through this entire book because I wanted to see if it would be a good book to go through on the page. So far, I loved it, and I took notes the entire time I was reading it. This might be the book that we will go through either in February or March.
Let's have a little bit of adaptability, but if you want to get it ahead of time, it's called "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David Schwartz. Alright! Let's continue with "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell.
"Ｔｈｅ Ｌａｗ ｏｆ Ｐａｉｎ"
𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗮𝗴𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗯𝗮𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘄𝘁𝗵.
𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘂𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗮𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀?
Do you explode in anger?
Do you shrink into self-emotions?
Do you detach yourself from the experience as much as possible?
Do you ignore it?
As soon as I read this, I knew we were going to talk about EQ. Has anybody heard of EQ? Everybody actually has an EQ, and it measures how well you handle your emotions. My husband and I, both learned all of these concepts of controlling your EQ (emotions), your IQ (intelligence), and your AQ (adaptability). And as we've grown in our leadership skills, managing a team, and growing a business, we've learned a ton about EQ.
Your EQ will probably control the decisions that you make every single day. And ultimately, for fat loss, because I know most of you are here to get stronger, fitter, feel healthier, and better. Your EQ is super important because it will play a huge role in whether you reach your goals or not. Your mindset is going to help you decide if you're going to reach your goals, or not.
"𝗣𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗽𝘁𝘀 𝘂𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘄𝗲 𝗱𝗼 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝘄𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝘃𝗶𝘃𝗲, 𝗜 𝗯𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗺𝘀"
It's all about how you handle your EQ. And at the very beginning of the chapter, he said when something bad happens, how do you handle that?
Do you act out of anger?
Do you eat out of your emotions?
Do you get frustrated and say I'm going to start tomorrow?
That is why your EQ is so important. I want you to think of these two words in any situation, whether you're running late, your kids are crabby, you don't feel like it's fair, or whatever it is in your life. Your emotions will kick in, good or bad, right or wrong.
𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗼𝗻 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗵𝗶𝗴𝗵 𝗘𝗤, "𝗘𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗤𝘂𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁".
So you've got your IQ, which measures your intelligence. But you also have your EQ, which measures your emotions, and then your AQ, which is your adaptability. Some people would even say there's an SQ, for spirituality. But basically, it's how well you handle your emotions.
Most people eat out of emotion. So when you find yourself in a situation, you need to think of these two words. Will I react, because I have a low EQ? Or will I be able to gather myself? To know that I don't have to say or eat anything at, this moment. I don't love the situation but how will I respond?
"𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗜 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗰𝘁? 𝗢𝗿 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗜 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗼𝗻𝗱?"
You don't want to react, instead, we want to be able to take five seconds and respond. I'm not going to get frustrated, instead, I'm going to respond, because I have a high EQ and I'm going to own the rest of my day. I'm going to learn from this experience. I'm not going to sabotage myself and I'm going to keep moving forward.
"𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘂𝗽𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗼𝘄𝗻𝘀. 𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗳𝗮𝗶𝗿𝗹𝘆 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂'𝗿𝗲 𝗮 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗹𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗮 𝘃𝗲𝗴𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗻.

"𝗦𝘂𝗰𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗱, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗽𝗼𝗼𝗿 𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗲𝗹𝗹. 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗯𝗮𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀, 𝗱𝗼 𝘄𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗯𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿?"
I just love this conversation of "Bitter or Better". I have had this conversation with so many people, especially family and those who are around me. If you hold things against other people and let your emotions control you. If you take that bitter root and let that control you, then you're going to be bitter, angry, self-sabotaging, and probably have that victim mentality.
You need to look at your experiences and tell yourself you're going to be better, you're going to learn, you're going to respond and you're going to make a pivot. Instead of allowing those little things to get to you, in the long grand scheme of things, do not let them take root in your heart, and do not become bitter.
"𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗲𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗱𝗲. 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀, 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗼𝗽𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝘁, 𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲"
If you can get your mindset and your emotions under control, then your health might be better. Oftentimes, people say, "I want to get skinnier", "I want to get fitter", or "I want to lose fifty pounds".
𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂, 𝗽𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆, 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆?
It might be because of your past environments
It might because of you're bitterness towards people
It might be the way that you grew up
𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗮 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗱𝘂𝗹𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗽 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗹.
I'm in control of my attitude.
I'm in control of my emotions.
If I'm not yet, then I'm going to be very soon because I just learned that I can control my emotions.
I can respond versus react
No more blaming the past
No more playing the victim card.
There comes a point in life where you have to stop looking at the past. Decide today to work on your mindset, be aware that you can control your emotions. You're not going to eat because you're emotional. You're going to respond in a way that's better, and that will help you in the long term.
"𝗧𝗼 𝗮 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁. 𝗡𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲. 𝗦𝗼 𝘄𝗵𝘆 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗜 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘀𝘁?"
This is where he shared a story about how so many people just expect the worst, and if they get something better, then that's awesome. Your mindset matters! Why in the world would you live life expecting something bad would happen and then hoping for the better? You actually get what you think about it.

I love this story. Life is not perfect, we're going to have challenges, and we're going to have things that we need to breakthrough. Like the addiction of chocolate, caffeine drinks, and the crazy sugars, the doughnuts, the fast-food or whatever that is, that's challenging you today. it's all about mindset, you can control your emotions and see the opportunity in the situation.

You are not going to lose the fifty pounds overnight, you did not get here overnight. Your life will not change overnight, but it will with every single decision every day, and every moment. Every time you control your emotions, you make a better decision. The only way you fail is if you quit. If you have a bad day, then try to control your emotions, and do better tomorrow.

Your emotions and the way you respond every single day are super important. It's not that we're going to have a perfect life. It's not that we set out on this crazy adventure, to lose fifty pounds because it's the new year. You're going to have things that come up against you. Distractions, frustrations, people circumstances, and environments.
But you get to work on your EQ. To be in control of yourself and ask yourself these questions, "Is this helping or hurting?", or "Is this better or worse?". It's an awareness, all of this is awareness. And that's "The 15 invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell. It's an incredible book.

It will help you understand that you can control your morning, and it will change everything in your life. And then after that, we will get to this book, "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David Schwartz.
