“It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.”
~ Tom Brokaw, Journalist
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“What A Difference A Year Makes”
Today is a BIG DAY for us. This is the 1st Anniversary of Connie and Sheila Talk. Our first episode posted to iTunes on March 30, 2010. Because Sheila cannot be here today due to family matters, Connie is doing this solo. We welcome our friend and podcast mentor: Cliff Ravenscraft, the Podcast Answerman. Cliff was here for our very first podcast, so we thought it would be great ot have him back and for the first time ever we are using Skype. Listen in as we share what the last twelve months have been like for us and for Cliff as well. You can find all of Cliff & Stephanie’s podcast at gspn.tv. Life is good and we are blessed to be able to do what we do.
Here’s the link to Pursuing A Balanced Life episode 483 that CLiff mentioned: “The Dark Days of December 2010”
“Our Future’s So Bright: We Gotta Wear Shades”
We are excited about all the new and fun things we are working on. One is creating a more interactive website with the help of our VA (virtual assistant), Missy. (Thank you Missy) We are also proud to host our first ever tele-seminar coming up in April. We are closing on another investment property next Monday. We have a lot going on and are excited about what our future holds. We know what it holds because we can see it already.
No matter what your today looks like, you can change your future.
If you are not terminally ill, stop acting like you are dying and START LIVING.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross wrote a book called “On Death & Dying”. In it she shares the 5 stages of grief. She also has commented that she believes that it is utterly wrong to work so much. She said life should be half working and half dancing, admitting that she worked too much and didn’t follow her own advice. Whether you are going through a difficult time in your life or your life couldn’t be any better, know that you are SOMEBODY and we; the world needs you to live fully. If you are going through any of the stages of grief, know that your future is as bright as you see it.
Our question this week is: What does your future look like? Stephen Covey says in his book “The 8th Habit”; “Victimism gives your future away. Don’t be a victim; create your future!” Think Big and dream bigger.
Until next week, Peace!
Connie and Sheila
