Hey, everybody! Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie. We're going to talk about "People of Persistence". We're still going through this book, "The Seven Decisions" by Andy Andrews, to help you with your mindset.

You can also go to for recipes, or the book club. We've gone through different books in the last year, you can go back and watch the live videos and follow along on the books.

People of Persistence

"Thomas Jefferson said, 'Never fear the want of business. A man who qualifies himself well for his calling never fails of employment'. What is success for you?"

Most of you are here for fat loss. We did a book before called "Chazown". It was about the different spokes in your life.

  • Physical health

  • Work

  • Relationships

  • Spiritual health

  • Mental health

There are so many other different areas that make up your life. And if one of those spokes is broken, it usually affects the other spokes. That book is called "Chazown", and you can look it up at our book club.

"What does success mean to you?"

My husband and I were talking about that the other day in the car. We were having a conversation and about certain circumstances. And I asked him, "What does success mean to yo, because success is different for everybody?". Success could be a certain amount of money, health, or it could look or feel a certain way.

"Certainly you and I both agree that success doesn't happen by accident. You must know what you want and what you are willing to give in, in order to get what you want".

  • What are your goals?

  • Do you want to lose 20 pounds?

  • Are you working on running a marathon?

  • Do you want to get stronger, physically?

  • What is one goal that you have?

You must know what you want and what you are willing to give, to get it. So when you write down a goal, whether it's losing 20 or 50 pounds, run a marathon, or just getting to the gym. What are you willing to give in, in order to get that?

What is something you're willing to give up in order to get a goal that you want?

It could be watching TV. Instead of watching your favorite show every night, you go for a walk and you get some cardio in. Instead of grabbing that snack that your kids love, you swear not to touch it. It's telling your kids that mom and dad have goals, and we physically cannot have those Oreos in the house.

Oftentimes people will say that it's not a big deal. I'll give you an example, years ago my husband told me that he needed to lose 50 pounds. This was nine years ago when he first started the keto diet, and I was not on track or on board with him.

I used to say things to my husband like, "That's crazy", "What you're doing?", or "You're willing to give up sweets?". I've learned that years ago, I was not a great wife but I'm learning and I learned.

My husband would say "Stephanie! The Debbie Snacks on the counter, the Oreos, or the ice cream in the freezer, stresses me out!".

And I would just tell him that it will help him have discipline, don't eat it. I didn't have very much compassion at that time. I realized I did not help the situation.

Almost 10 years later, I've learned my lesson. I had to learn that we don't have to buy certain things that can cause stress for certain people when they see it. "Out of sight, Out of mind". You don't have to have the candy drawer, and we stopped putting the ice cream in the freezer. There are things that I had to do to help him have success, and there are things that you need to do get rid of. Stop buying junk, change your routine in order to get the results that you want.

"Two things will be required. First, a decision. Second, consistent action and follow through until you succeed. What does follow through mean? It means continuous action towards your goals. Intended planned effective action.
You won't get any anywhere just by waiting for God to give it to you. Remember, He feeds the birds but he doesn't throw the food into the nest".

This is something in your spiritual spoke that I hear often. Sometimes I just sit and listen to people pray about something they're believing for, or they're asking for something. And then how often do we just sit and wait for a door of opportunity to open or come this way?

๐—”๐—ป๐˜†๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ด๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป.

You can pray about it, believe it, but you've got to get your booty off that couch and go take action in order to achieve it. You've got to take that next step, the idea that God gives you, or the open door of the gym coach who would love to coach you. There are things you have to do in order to reach your goals. It does not just fall into your lap.

"Following through intending success, means relentless commitment to achieve your outcomes through drastic action. Many people fall into the trap of deciding on a destination or a goal without committing to the follow through.
One or two actions typically will not get you to success to which you're committed. Massive, consistent action is what's needed to get you to where you want to go".
  • What do you want?

  • What are you believing for?

  • Are you taking action towards those goals?

  • What is the next action step?

I feel like we probably say that often, but did you know and you can apply this to your kids, your employees, or whatever the case may be. Most of the time, people need to hear things at least 17 times before they actually know what they need to do. And then somebody would ask, "Do you know what I need to do?". It's the 17th time that somebody told them. Somebody planted the seed, you planted the seed, or maybe somebody did that for you.

If you need to lose 20 pounds, and you physically don't know what you need to do, you can send me a message and I will help you. If you need a basic foods list, I'll give you some very basic ideas of how to get started. If you just need some encouragement, send a message or you can tune in here.

Think of the goal that you have right now. It doesn't matter if it's a business or relationship goal. I'm going to guess that you know one thing you need to do, if it's a business goal. It might be extra phone calls, follow ups, getting out of your office, or having a business meeting with somebody you've been wanting to meet.

If it's a relationship goal, it might need an apology or an intentional date. You might need to have a conversation. If it's a health goal, then it might be going through your cupboards and taking all the junk out. Out of sight! Get rid of the candy drawer, and make the commitment to go to the gym. Find yourself an accountability partner. Dump that bowl of sugary cereal that you're eating right now.

You know what you need to do, you know the next step. And if you don't, and you physically have no idea? Then find somebody who's already done it and ask them for help.

If it's food or ideas of how to get healthy, send me a message. If it's for your relationships, like help with your children or marriage, seek out a counselor or ask somebody who has a great marriage or a great relationships with their kids. If it's a business question, find somebody who's already done it. Mentors are so powerful and mentors have helped us in every area of our life.

Whether it's a book or a physical mentor, every time we've needed something, we've found somebody that's done it and we've asked how to get it.

"Whatever you're wanting in life, it's going to take intentional, relentless, consistent, long term, and focused action".
Your word today is "Action". Take note of an action that you have on some type of goal. And you will find that you get so much closer to that goal.

You can send me a message for help, or you can go to So have a good morning. We'll talk to you guys very soon!
