Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to talk about "Decision Making", and having a decisive heart. And we're going through this book, "The Seven Decisions" by Andy Andrews.
It's going to be a really great week because I said it. Your words are powerful. My hope is to go through something in your mindset every morning, to give you something to think about. I'm actually going to read a couple of paragraphs to you because I loved what the author said.
Or do you feel like you have to ask and pray? That's not bad, because you do need to get some counsel, mentorship, and ask good questions. But there's also an aspect of deciding, making the decision, and taking the next step.
And so I'm going to read this to you. And you can decide if it's something that you need some inspiration o. Or maybe you actually need to make a decision, you've been swaying back and forth, and you need to have a decisive heart.
"A man once said, A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Knowing this to be true, I'm taking my first step today. For far too long, my feet have been tentative. They've been shuffling, left and right. More backward than forwards, as my heart, gauges the direction of the wind. Criticism, condemnation, and complaints are the creatures of the wind. They come and they go, and they waste the breath of lesser beings and have no power over me"
"The power to control direction belongs to me today. I will begin to exercise that power".
I am going to make decisions.
I'm not going to wave in the wind.
I'm not going to let other people decide for me, I'm not going to let criticism or other people's thoughts because they might not agree with what I'm doing.
But if I'm doing the next step towards the goals I want to achieve, then you're going to have people that are going to make jabs. But I'm going to decide to keep going.
"I am passionate about my vision for the future. I will awaken every morning with excitement about the new day and its opportunities for growth and change".
"My thoughts and my actions will work in a forward motion. Never sliding into the dark forest of doubt, or the muddy quicksand of self-pity. I will freely give my vision for the future to others. And as they see the belief in my eyes, they will follow me".
I'm going to be passionate.
I'm going to do the things that are on my heart. I'm going to move forward.
I'm not going to let crabs in the bucket pull me down.
I'm not going to let other people's thoughts or opinions of the goals that I have set, set me back.
"I will lay my head on my pillow every single night happily exhausted knowing that I have done everything within my power to move the mountains in my path. As I sleep the same dream that dominates my waking hours will be the one with me in the dark".
"Yes, I have a dream. It is a great dream. And I will never apologize for it. Neither will I let it go. For if I do, my life would be finished. My hopes, my passions, and my visions for the future are my very existence. A person without a dream never had a dream come true. I have a decisive heart. I will not wait. I know that the purpose of the analysis is to come to the conclusion".
The author talked about the purpose of the analysis. It's time to just make a decision and move forward. Stop trying to get everybody else to agree with you and go.
"Now I have to make the decision with my heart. I am not timid. I will move now and not look back. What I put off until tomorrow, I will put off until the next day as well. I will not be a procrastinator. All of my problems become smaller when I confront them".
"If I touch a thistle with caution, it will prick me. But if I grasp it boldly it spine crumbles into dust. I will not wait. I am passionate about my vision for the future. My course has been charted. My destiny is assured, and I have a decisive heart".
I read that this morning and it was just so good. Where have you let other people's opinions, words, and thoughts, dictate your decisions? We could simply talk about the keto diet if all we talked about was how you're eating.
Isn't it funny how most people have an opinion about the food that you eat? I've never had more people concerned about what I'm eating and what I'm drinking, and not in a good way.
People often say...
I heard that wasn't healthy.
I heard that it does this.
Please check with your doctor.
Isn't it interesting how people love to give you their opinion? And I usually just respond with, "Maybe you should join me".
Don't let people's negative mindset, negative words, or negative opinions dictate the direction that you're going. If you have somebody who wants to add some value to you, tell them which direction you're going, and ask if they have any great insight to help you move that way...
Has any of you been criticized for eating keto, low carb, working on your health, getting healthy, or getting stronger?
When we joined the CrossFit gym, I had people saying that it's going to hurt your joints. I don't know why you're doing that... Why don't you tell me, "Hey, that sounds great"., "Congratulations! you're moving your body. That's so awesome". But it's interesting to me, how somebody would nitpick me for joining Crossfit, but would never do the same with their best friend who is sitting on the couch eating a bag of potato chips.
The same thing goes with food. People say they can't believe the way that I eat. And I'm like, "Would you walk up to somebody at a restaurant that has a double-sized meal and extra large coke and a and a dessert and say, "Are you actually going to eat that?"...
People usually will give you negative feedback, and terrible criticism, they will try to pull you down. Because you're moving forward, you have a vision, you have a purpose. And it's making them feel less because they know they should probably be doing more.
So don't get frustrated by other people's words or thoughts. If you're focused and you're going in the right direction, keep going. We can't be everything to everybody, and not everybody is going to like us.
"I have a decisive heart! More people fail at what they attempt because of an undecided heart than for any other reason".
"Successful people make the decisions quickly and they change their mind slowly. Unsuccessful people make their decisions slowly, and they change their minds quickly".
Those are just a couple of thoughts for you today. This is a great book, and I'm just going to take a couple of things out from it to give you a thought for the day. I want you to be encouraged, as you go to your office, your work, or wherever you're at. I want you to have a decisive heart.
What are you doing? Are you focused? Or are you easily swayed because you started great today? You read and did all the things but then your coworkers asked you out and you went and binged on food.
If you did that, then it didn't wreck the rest of your day. Get back up and keep going. You have a decisive heart. You have goals and dreams.
All right! That's what this chapter is about. You can always message me with your questions, I'm here to help. Thank you, I truly appreciate you. We'll talk to you very soon. Have a good morning!
