Good morning everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to talk about "I will persist without exception".

  • I'm going to persist.

  • I'm going to reach my goals.

  • I'm not going to be average, like most people. I'm going to persist.

  • I'm going to persist.

  • I'm going to persist.

  • I'm going to keep going until I get there.

So as you're tuning in, this is the book that we have been going through, "The Seven Decisions" by Andy Andrews.

This page was started almost seven years ago. I love to help other people reach their goals or to at least believe they can.

I want to be your cheerleader.

I want to inspire you.

I want you to understand that awareness is key. I want you to understand that you usually end up like the people that are around you.

I want you to understand that you can find some incredible mentors through listening to podcasts and listening and reading books.

I want you to know that you're worth it and you're worthy.

I want you to know all of that.

Just because there might not be people around you that believe in you, I believe in you. I have done many things in my life that many thought I couldn't do, or that our family could accomplish.

But we've done so many great things because we learned the power of our mindset. We learned the power of mentors, and we were told about personal development. I started this page 7 years ago because I wanted to help people eat keto. And that's great! You can actually go to, it's our blog. You can click on recipes, and how to get started, and there's also the Book Club. I also answer keto questions every day.

I will help you on your journey.

I'll help you eat better.

I'll give you some ideas.

I'll talk to you about water and Net Carbs.

I'll talk to you about all the keto things.

๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ฃ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น ๐——๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€.

But then a little over a year ago I told my husband that what truly changed our lives was realizing the power of personal development. Being coached, and having people that cared about the places that we were going. Being around like-minded people, reading good books, and then putting the books into action. That was the key.

And so that made me realize that I need to start talking about a book every morning or giving people something to think about. It's our mindset that will change everything else.

If you don't believe that you can, then you won't.

If you believe that you can, you will.

"As I think so I feel. As I feel so I do. As I do so I have" by Joseph McClendon III.

Looking at what you have and reversing how you got there, goes back to your thought process. You might not be happy with what you have or where you're at. But we can change it by starting with our mindset. "As I think", meaning what I think about creates a feeling. If you got up this morning with a heart of gratitude and your thought processes started in a positive direction, then that creates a feeling.

"As I think so I feel. As I feel so I do". You probably walked around your house with a happy heart and a positive attitude, encouraging the people in your home or around you, then that's what you will get as well. But if you got up with a negative mindset, then that's what you will get as well.

"I will persist without exception. Knowing that I have already made changes in my life that will last forever. Today I insert the final piece. I possess the greatest power ever bestowed upon mankind, the power of choice. You have the power of choice every single day. Today I choose to persist without exception. No longer will I live in a dimension of distraction. My focus is blown hither and yon like a leaf on a blustery day. I know the outcome. I desire I hold fast to my desire and my dreams. I stay the course. I will not quit".

If you agree with that I want you to post below I will not quit. If that is something that you are going to go after and you're gonna go after whatever goals are, I want you to post below I will not quit. We're going to speak these words over ourselves. Your words are powerful.

I will persist without exception.

I will continue despite exhaustion.

I acknowledge the fact that most people quit when exhaustion sets in.

I am not like most people

I am stronger than most people

Average people except for exhaustion as a matter of course, I do not average people compare themselves with others, I do not.

That is why they are average. I compare myself to my potential.

I am not average.

I see exhaustion as a precursor to victory.

๐—œ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐˜.

"I will not quit. How long must a child try to walk before he actually does it? Do I not have more strength than a child more understanding, more desire? How long must I work to succeed before I actually do so? A child would never ask a question, for the answer does not matter. He's going to keep trying until he walks. I will be the person that will persist. I will persist without exception, I focus on results. To achieve the results I desire, it is not even necessary that I enjoy the process. It is only important that I continue the process with my eyes on the outcome. I will persist!"

"Anytime you go after something big a time will come when it might seem obvious to everybody else that it's over. It cannot be done, they say. It may even seem obvious to you, that it might be time to be over. If you get to that point and you have persisted, then others will tell you, 'It's okay to quit because you've persisted', 'You've hung in there, you can quit now because you've got a clear conscious that you've tried the best that you can'.

"You've tried. Lord knows that you've tried, you've done everything that you've can. It's time to quit. Honey, it's time to quit".
"People will encourage you to quit if you've persisted because society no longer holds a penalty for quitting as long as you've tried your best".

However, if you persist without exception, if you keep going, no matter what. "I'm going to do this, I'm not going to quit".

Have you guys seen that little meme? There was this man who was in a cave digging for gold. And he was almost there, just right on the other side of the wall was the gold or the diamonds, but he quit.

"You will have to find a way where there is no way. And that is when a miracle occurs. Anytime that you hit a wall, or you come to the end of the road. What you're lacking isn't money, mentorship, or time. You're lacking an idea".

And that's it! An idea! So don't just quit. The author is basically saying how often people quit when all they needed was an idea. When you feel it's over, what have you done or what have you tried? And that's usually when a new idea comes up.

In general, if all were talking about is your health. It would be common sense to say, if you keep going it will work. People usually tell me that they've tried it, and they've done all the things that were needed. They tracked their food and did the best they could.

So you did the best that you could. Last weekend you had a party and got back on track. That's great! But their "Best" lasted only a matter of weeks or a month. Somebody who's in the pursuit of better or constant will persist no matter what and without exception. They're not just looking at the end game of a couple of weeks or a couple of months. If your goal is to get healthy, you've got to give it a year.

  • Could you imagine if you stay focused and persisted for a year?

  • Do you think that your life would change?

  • Could you be so disciplined and make the best choices possible?

I'm not saying that in that year there's not going to be any time that you might grab a doughnut, a soda, or skip your workout. What I'm saying is, that your mindset should not be set on "If I don't see results in a week, I'm going to quit", or "If I don't see results in a month, I'm going to quit".

Nothing worth going after is going to happen easily. You didn't get here overnight, so you're not going to get there overnight.

People often look at people's success on social media, and they forget the eight-year journey that that person took to get there. It's like the eight-year overnight success. You actually don't know their story. If you look into our family story or our business, people might say we got lucky. I hate the word "Luck". I don't believe in luck. There's blessed, and a lot of hard work.

If you're looking at our family in the aspect of business, it's been at least seven years or you can say it's probably since Steve and I have been married, of constant work to get to where we are today. And that's just in our business. In our marriage, I would say the same thing. I have people say that we have an incredible marriage. Yes, it came with mentorship, reading books, and being intentional.

Our marriage is incredible due to the intentionality and work that we've put into it. That's the same with my health, my blood work came back incredible. Somebody asked me the other day about my blood results after eating low carb and drinking ketones. The doctor actually called me and said, "You're probably the healthiest person I ever drew blood on". It wasn't overnight, it was gradual learning, implementing, and taking action.

It was working on my mindset, believing that I could do it. I was doing the best that I could, knowing that I'm not perfect, and I just kept going. It's been over seven years of being intentionally focused on eating better.

It could be anything in your life like friendships or parenting. I feel like I have an incredible relationship with my teenagers. It was intentional and not overnight, of me being aware, watching things, and implementing certain actions. Anything that you want to achieve is going to take time and persistence. It's going to take you going after it when the average person says it's time to give up and try something else.

I hope it encouraged you in any way, shape, or form. You can go to for more content. You can reach out with any questions you have. Remember, your words are powerful. A lot of things can be changed in your outlook or on your day, based on the words you speak.

Thank you for tuning in. I hope you guys have an incredible day. I appreciate you, and we'll talk to you guys very soon. Bye, everybody!
