Good morning, everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to dive into "The Seven Decisions" by Andy Andrews. Yesterday we talked about the concept of "The Buck Stops Here". We talked about not living or not blaming the past, but moving forward.
Do you feel like you own your morning? Oftentimes people say they don't have time. They don't have time to prep their food, to work out, or no time to take care of themselves. So what does your morning look like? Do you own it, or do other people own your time?
There's a book I've read before called "The Miracle Morning", it's an incredible book. And it helps you understand the concept of getting up earlier. Don't ever use the excuse that you're not a morning person. I used to say that all the time, but it's just a matter of going to bed a little bit early and getting up because you're excited to own your day, getting up and going after your goals.
"What are you believing in your life?"
I want you to believe that there's good in the world, and that you can achieve the goals that you want to go after. I want you to believe that there's something different for you, and there's better out there.
If you feel greatt, then I love that. But if you're not, I want you to have some hope and some faith that you can go after the things that you want, even if other people don't believe in you.
Yesterday, we talked about not blaming, shaming, or justifying things in your past. Oftentimes people say... "I was always told I was going to look this way", or "Nobody believed in me". I believe in you! I bet you, if you surround yourself with the right people, you will find other people that believe in you as well.
"Your path cannot be changed, but you will change your future by changing your actions today. The guided decision teaches us to actively seek wisdom to help us craft our extraordinary lives".
Are you seeking counsel, or are you trying to do this on your own? You can grab all of the knowledge that you want, and I'm guessing you're watching a whole bunch of other people too. Finding all of the recipes, all the how tos, how do I get healthy, all of the perfect workouts, and all of the things.
Knowledge is great to have, but there's a difference between true wisdom. If you want to seek wisdom, find those who've already done it, ask them how to do it, and then the key is to take action.
"There are three simple things you can do daily to chart your life long search for wisdom. You can read"...
We actually read here on the Keto Mom page. We don't just talk about recipes, because I truly believe that people need wisdom. Where do you find wisdom? You read good books. You seek counsel and find mentors, and you serve. Those are the three things that this author believes will give you more wisdom.
Wisdom is different. It's not just reading a book and learning. It's not just watching a recipe and feeling like you know how to do keto. True wisdom is surrounding yourself with good, solid people. People that you want to go and learn from.
"A lazy person doesn't look for wisdom. Be a person of action, be a person of wisdom".
This book is great, but I'm not reading all of it. My hope is to give you something to think about. The author also said to choose your companions wisely. You are just like the people you surround yourself with. Look at the people you surround yourself with, and then you look at your health?
Are your friends pushing you to be better, and healthier?
Are they encouraging you to be stronger, and go after your goals?
Or are those friends encouraging you to go the other way?
I'm not asking for you to defend anybody. But if you want to be better in any area of your life, you've got to get some wisdom and find people that have already done it.
