Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie and we are going to talk about "The Illusion of Perfection". I was listening to two podcasts on the airplane. One talked about the power of consistency and the other one was from a pastor. It was a podcast by Erwin McManus, and he talked about, "What does it take to be great?" I also listened to a podcast about consistency.
"𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲'𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁".
Like in order to reach a goal, everything has to be perfect, therefore, people don't start. How often have you found yourself wanting to start something, but because it wasn't perfect, you just didn't do it? It wasn't the perfect environment, the cupboards weren't full of the most perfect foods, or the timing wasn't perfect, so you ended up not starting at all.
"𝗕𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗶𝘀𝗻'𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁"
Nothing in social media is perfect, it makes it seem like everybody has a perfect life. It would seem like other people have the perfect environment, better foods, better jobs, better things in their town, or they've got more support.
But a lot of it can be an illusion because you don't know the struggle somebody else is going through.
I want you to just want you to finish this month and dive into a new month. The only way you fail is if you quit. If you get back up and you grab a hold of what you were doing, you did not fail. Don't mess up good for perfect. There's no such thing as perfect. There's good, there's better, and probably the best option in anything that you're doing.
