Managing Change

Here is another extremely relevant podcast to help you get through these crazy times we are experiencing.  Our lives have been thrown for a loop and we have totally changed the way we are used to living.  If you are like me, I have a hard time dealing with change.  Listen to this podcast, it will help you get through all of this change.

There has never been a more appropriate time to release this podcast.  This is something I published 10 years ago and is very relevant today considering the mass hysteria gripping our country over the Novel CoronaVirus.  Take a listen and let me know how you feel about what is going on.

Beyond Success

Oh My Gosh!!!  Where did the year go?  We look back on all the things we did this year, and then we think about all the things we didn’t do, but wanted or planned to do… The year really ought to be twice as long!!!

We’ve made it a practice at the end of each year to write down all of our accomplishments just so we can get a sense of what we’ve actually done.  It’s amazing how good we feel after looking over our list.  We challenge you to do the same and have fun!!!

That being said, what’s next for you?  What’s beyond your current success?  What do you want?  Could it be furthering your career?  Taking on more family time? Retirement? What about a total change in lifestyle?  Whatever your desire or circumstance, check out what may be stopping you from moving forward.

We all have the opportunity to be thankful and grateful for all the good things in our lives every day. The events that seem like an annoyance, or a setback, or an inconvenience, or even life-threatening, can be just what we need to get us back on track and be grateful. We can choose to believe that there is good in all that happens to us or we can choose to be a victim of life’s circumstances… Which do you choose?

Take time today, and every day, to be grateful for at least one thing in your life. Perhaps when you start doing that, more than one thing you are grateful for will show up for you. Just a Thought!!!

We had fun making this Podcast come to life and for that we are grateful! We were reminded to be thankful for our circumstances and also to let family and friends know that we are grateful and thankful for them.

With Gratefulness,

Clay & Susan

We all have people and things in our lives that we can be appreciative of. But when was the last time you took a minute to express your appreciation spontaneously and personally to another? It's easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of our daily routines and forget to acknowledge those who contribute to our lives - our spouse, our loved ones, the kids, a co-worker or friend, the clerk at the grocery store. But don't wait til later or assume they know you're grateful even though you may not have expressed it. Instead, give your thanks while in the moment. It's a great way to help make someone else's day, and doesn't cost you anything!

The added benefit is that the more you openly express your appreciation, the more happiness that will come back to you, too! And keep in mind, the exact opposite can be true too! When we fail to show our appreciation for even the "smallest" things, we risk making others feel that their contributions and actions are being taken for granted, and eventually those around us will stop doing things for us!

Take some time to acknowledge someone today. You'll put a smile on their face, and chances are you'll have a smile on yours while doing it (and afterwards). A win-win for everyone!

We had a lot of fun recording this podcast episode. Take a listen, think about some ways you can acknowledge and show your appreciation to someone who has helped you recently, and please share some of your experiences with us at clay@claynelsonlifebalance.com!

    Over the years, many people have approached me for information on how to create their life plan.
