“Change One Thing” Guest Blog Post by Kim Clausen

May 5, 2016

Note from Gina:  I love Kim Clausen’s description of why “one tiny step at a time” can make all the difference in the world.  We teach people to know what their goal is, but to concentrate on the next thing that they can do to move towards that goal.


Change One Thing

By Kim Clausen

Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re a human, you have probably hit that point where work is no fun, relationship is a struggle and you don’t even feel comfortable in your body.

At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?

It’s quite simple, really…just change ONE thing.

Change one small thing

Read a magazine article you would never typically even consider. Try a new type of restaurant. Take a different route to work. Any simple change of scenery can shift your perspective, and has the potential to drastically transform your life.

It’s like a ship at sea…if it changes course even one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely new waters.

Of course, the most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. Annoyance can easily be turned into fascination. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed if you simply turn it into a song.

You don’t have to tackle the whole enchilada, just make one simple shift.

And the best part is…it’s all experimentation. If you don’t like your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one.

What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY?

One thought on ““Change One Thing” Guest Blog Post by Kim Clausen

  1. I’ll respond to Kim’s post. The “one small change” or “one degree shift” I will make is to always ask myself, “Do I have to do so much?” It’s a version of “Am I tuning into my own needs enough?” Lately I’ve been breaking my back and exhausting myself for someone I love, but I haven’t taken enough care of myself. So this shift will help.
