Clap Your Hands

I want you to take a minute to clap your hands. Do it at least five times. Hear the noise? Do you feel it? Now I want you to do it again but this time use only one hand and you cannot use your leg, table, or anything else….just one hand.  Do you hear it? Can you feel it? No? You can’t hear it because you are just swatting air.

Living life without goals, without a plan, and without a household budget is like trying to clap with one hand.  You’re spending energy, you’re spending effort, you’re moving, you’re getting tired, but the results for all of your effort just aren’t there.

Just like clapping needs two hands, your life needs that “second hand;” the goals, the plan, and the budget. So stop swatting air and get out there and make some changes in your life. Read a book, take a class, or talk to an expert that can help you with the “second hand.”

You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
