“Life Begins At The End Of Your Comfort Zone”

Successful Retirement, Finding Your Own Way

The key to a successful retirement is about finding your own way. It is not about doing what you think you are supposed to do now that you are retired. But more about allowing life to take you in whatever direction it leads you. When you stop forcing it to be something you think it is supposed to be and just let it evolve, you will discover the happiness you are looking for. Seeing where retirement takes you, discovering who you are now that work doesn’t define you, that’s what retirement is all about.

The truth is, retirement is perceived the wrong way. That is, retirement is often thought of as retiring from a position. So, in our minds, it is the end of something. In a traditional sense, the definition of retirement is to withdraw from work and transition into full time leisure. But consider reframing this stage of your life. Retirement is the time to reinvent, refocus, and redirect. Remember, life is a journey, not a destination. The second half of your life is a new opportunity to live the life you love with purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.

Design The Life You Want to Live…

You are the architect of your own life. You are the sculptor, the painter, the artist, and the author. This is the time in your life when you get to design and craft it the way you want it. And, while there are a lot of books on retirement, the only book that really matters is the one you write!

“Open your eyes to the beauty around you, open your mind to the wonders of life, open your heart to those who love you, and always, be true to yourself.”

Maya Angelou

Successful Retirement Life, Being True To YOU…

Life is short be intentional. Retirement is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself. What is your purpose, or calling. For some, purpose is lies in a spiritual connection, and for others purpose can be found in all aspects of life. Purpose is about recognizing your gifts. And when you do, you use them to contribute to the world. Whether those gifts are playing beautiful music for others to enjoy, helping others in need, or simply bringing more joy into the lives of those around you.

Life’s purpose is uniquely different for each person. This is the perfect time to pursue your passions. Be a contributor, be curious, and most of all just be. When you live a life you love, with people you love, doing what you love, that is the true meaning of a successful retirement. Remember, you are not retiring from life. Enjoy every day, feel confident, be happy, and be free to choose how you wish to live!
