I don't believe that you should just quit something. I'm not going to quit the live videos, I'm not going to quit reading, but sometimes things aren't working. And sometimes there are things that are not for me and you. So it's okay to make a pivot and try something a little different.

Full Episode Transcript:
Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to talk about pivoting. Sometimes you have to pivot, and sometimes you might feel like you don't know if this is working. But it doesn't mean that you're quitting, sometimes you just have to make a teeny tiny change. What does that mean? What does that look like? We're going to talk about this book, "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. But we're also going to talk about not reading the book... So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? How was your morning? It's a little bit late here, mainly because I was reading the book.
Do you ever do something and then you feel like you don't know if this is exactly right? It doesn't mean that I'm on the wrong path, I just need to pivot, like a centimeter over.
So here's the deal, here's why I was a little bit late. I think this book is great when I first read it, but what I realized is I actually listened to the audible many times in the last six and a half years. I think the audible, and the book are great... Now stay with me for a second, first of all, how are you doing? Did any of you see the morning the picture that I posted this morning?. I didn't take the picture, but my husband did. So he took a gorgeous picture over our lake, and it was so beautiful. This morning we worked out, we were reading, and I wanted to shower first. So that's why it's a little bit late this morning. By the way, it's raining, it's fine but I'm really cold.
So as I was reading the book this morning, I was telling my husband, "I am not enjoying this book, although I have in the past"... There are seasons when you read things, I think all of the books that we have done have been great. They have been simpler to do a live video on, and to communicate back and forth. I say all of that because I feel like this book, while it's great, it's a better audible.
But it depends on the season that you're in. It's kind of like reading the King James Bible version. If you know what that means. I'm not saying that's wrong, I'm just saying there are different versions. If you understand the Bible, sometimes I feel like "I don't know what that means, I'm going to go look in this version", "I don't know what that means, I'm going to go look at a different version to make sure I understand it"... The problem is, there's no commentary or a different version for this book.
I have decided while I was talking to my husband, he's like "Don't read it". So here's what we're going to do... This book is great, but I'm not going to be doing live videos on this book anymore. If you have the book, I would still encourage you to go through it and read it in your own timeframe.
Actually, I would encourage you to get the audible book and listen to it. It's just a different read, and I'm going to give you an overview of the 13 Principles. Basically, Napoleon Hill, just so you know, he wrote another book that is one of my favorite books. It's called Outwitting the Devil, so if you want a book that's going to shake your mindset in life, go get the other book that he wrote. It's Outwitting the Devil, and it's incredible...
Going back, a lot of this book is about riches. I had said you can take anything that he talks about, and apply it to any area of success that you want in your life. So he talked about having a burning Desire, Faith, Auto-suggestion, Knowledge, using your Imagination, Organized Planning, Taking Action, Making Decisions, and being Persistent. Mastering your mind, your health, your subconscious, and talking about your brain. He also talks about your sixth sense...
It's not that we're quitting, because I'm not going to quit the so-called keto mom book club or this mindset morning. But we're going to make a pivot. I'm going to find a different book, you don't have to get the book, but you can tune in. I'm going to find a book that is different.
So with all that said, if you have the book "Think and Grow Rich", it's a great book. I would tell you to continue to read it as fast, or as low as you want to. Grab the audible, and I'm going to find a different book. There's so much that you can teach people.
So this is the last thing I'm going to say about health, fitness, mindset, and then I'm going to find another book.
Our family has been blessed to be around lots of different types of people. My husband used to work in a church, so we have been in the church world. We lived in Oklahoma for five years. We have been in the church realm, the business realm, and everything in between. We've worked in many different places, with a lot of different types of people. And I have been blessed to see people living paycheck to paycheck and in poverty. What does this have to do with your health? A lot, just hold tight.
I have been blessed to be around people who have had more than you could ever imagine. And I've learned a lot of lessons in any area that we've lived at, and every job that we've been around. My husband said I can teach people mindset, about their health and fitness. I can tell people exactly how to eat, what to drink, and how much water to drink. I can tell you to work on your mindset. If you don't have the right mindset, if you're thinking negatively versus positively, then you're going to get what you look for.
There's a key component... It doesn't matter how poor or rich you are, it doesn't matter how healthy or unhealthy you are, it doesn't matter what you have. But if your heart isn't in the right place... Have you ever heard "Out of the heart, the mouth speaks?"...
It doesn't take long to figure out where somebody is at in life, because all you have to do is listen to them speak. You can tell where their mindset is, you can tell if they're a positive person or a negative person. You can tell if they're having a bad day or a good day. And in general, and this is something that we've noticed over the last ten years. If you don't have faith, if you don't have a relationship with God, then you are missing everything this world has to offer.
We have seen it, we have been around it, and we have watched people crumble even when they have everything. They understand how to use the mindset. They understand that if I speak positively, I should get positive results. They understood the mindset, they had everything money could buy, and they still weren't happy or joyful...
And so there's this part where I can tell you what to eat, awesome! I can tell you to work on your mindset, and then there's the heart aspect that's missing. And that's why I'm going to find a different book. So whether you choose to tune in or not, it's a hundred percent up to you. If you're out, then that's fine. You can still tune into the page the rest of the day. If all you're looking for are recipes, go to ketomomsecrets.com. If all you're wanting are some keto tips and tricks, then tune in every afternoon. I usually give you a Keto tip around that time or message me and I'll give you a foods list.
Message me with your goals, and I'll tell you how to achieve them. Or I'll give you some suggestions on how to achieve them.
But if your goal is to truly transform your life, then the books have to change... I can teach you mindset, but it's going to have to go deeper. Therefore I have to make a pivot, and we're going to do a different book. You can choose to buy the book, or tune in here and listen to one phrase that I might say and then focus on that.
However you choose to participate, I welcome you every single morning. My goal is to come on here between seven or seven-thirty, to give you something to think about in your life. It will have to do with mindset, and with what you're believing. It will have to do with faith, and I'll help apply it to your health in some way, shape, or form.
So that's what we're going to do... For those who have the book, I would encourage you to grab the audible and continue to read the book. But I'm not going through this book anymore because I am not enjoying it on the level that I enjoyed it, six or four years ago. And whenever I read it, I read it with a business mind. And it's great, but I'm done with this one. I don't believe that you should just quit something. I'm not going to quit the live videos, I'm not going to quit reading, but sometimes things aren't working. And sometimes there are things that are not for me and you. It's okay to make a pivot. It's okay to try something a little different...
I'll give you this little keto tip. It's no different than you and I talking about your diet, and you're telling me what you're eating. Maybe you're eating too much fat because you're not really keto. And I'd say "Hey, we're going to make a pivot, you're not going to eat as much fat. We're going to make a pivot, and I'm going to have you not eat as many fat bombs, heavy whipping cream or as many snacks"...
It's not that you're quitting, sometimes things aren't working, or you don't feel like it's the right thing. And you might be missing it by that much. So I feel like here in the mornings, I'm missing it by that much. This is a good read. We could keep reading it, you might get something out of it, but it's not hitting inside the heart. So we're going to make a pivot.
I don't know the next book that we're going to go through yet, but we've got a couple of ideas. We've got an entire bookshelf of books, I'll let you know. I'm not sure what we're going to do yet, but I will come on every single morning and give you something to think about... So I hope that's helpful. For what it's worth, I love to share but I want it to actually be valuable. That's all I've got this morning, I hope you have an incredible day. As always continue to reach out, ask any questions that you have. I'm always here to help.
I hope you have an incredible day, and we'll talk to you soon.
