Episode 196: The ONE Thing for Managing Grief | Casey Belgard

This show is often very inspiring, motivational, and simple, but life isn’t always that way – and sometimes things happen that rock you to our core. 

The grief that we feel as a result can be debilitating, causing us to feel stuck and hopeless. But that isn’t really the case. We all have the power to overcome any obstacle, even when life throws us unfair and unexpected curveballs.

Our guest, Casey Balgard, has gone through every parent’s worst nightmare – the loss of a child – but, today, we’re going to walk through what happened, how The ONE Thing entered his life, and how he used it to help him move forward and manage his grief. We know that there are many people out there struggling with grief, but if Casey’s story can help you, then it’s fulfilling our mission: helping you take back control of your time and gain clarity on how you want to invest it moving forward.

The ONE thing to takeaway from this episode

For so many of us, our journey of living The ONE Thing involves being overwhelmed with so many things to do and struggling to whittle it down to the lead domino. But when you’re managing grief, it’s the exact opposite: sometimes you see nothing. Sometimes you don’t even want to get out of bed or move.In that moment, you can find your north star just by asking the focusing question: What’s the ONE thing that I can do that will make taking care of myself, will make having a relationship with the people I care about, or will make putting food on the table easier or unnecessary.Once you understand what that ONE thing is in the moment, you can whack away at it until it falls – because when you do, it automatically gets you back up to hit the next one. And if your dominos are already lined up, it makes everything else easier or unnecessary.If this episode has helped you, we hope you consider sharing it with the other people in your life who need to hear this.
