MAKING CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE THAT WILL MOVE YOU INTO A COMFORTABLE RETIREMENT
ARE YOU FEELING STUCK?
Not literally, but figuratively speaking,
I WAS…….I was Stuck!
You know the old saying “between a rock and a hard place?”
Yes, that was me!
For the life of me I couldn’t figure out where I was going or what I was doing moving into a pre-retirement period of my life. I knew I didn’t want to continue doing what I was doing in my work life, but I was terrified to walk away!
- It was a job right?
- Better the devil you know than devil you don’t, right?
- Who’s going to give you another job at your stage of your career, right?
- Would that achieve anything anyway?
Right, Right, Right………………. I could come up with a million of these reasons to stay where I was, given all the reasons above, but was this all there was for me?? Time was running out and I still I didn’t have a clear future path
BELIEVE ME I UNDERSTAND…..THE PROSPECT OF RETIREMENT CAN BE A TRULY TERRIFYING THING!
For ME especially, as a woman, my superannuation wasn’t going to come anywhere near what I needed,
- To live a happy fruitful existence
- Doing the things I want to do,
- Spending time with my family and generally enjoying a better quality of life.
- It’s simply not fair, you work hard all your life, and THEN WHAT???.
It wasn’t as if I didn’t see this coming! As a young mum, when my child was still in primary school, I was told that the jobs that my son was going to be moving into upon leaving school didn’t at this point exist. The world was headed into a more online environment, and to be honest, my job was to encourage companies to move their staff into a more mobile remote environment. I’m not sure why this came as such a shock.
I guess the answer is, I didn’t think that far ahead. You see, when you get close to the end of your working life, you start to realise that the future for you could look pretty grim. The serious question I was facing was, am I going to have to continue working into my 70’s? THAT more than anything was the most terrifying thing. This wasn’t in my grand plan when I was working my butt off, working 50 hour weeks, working all the hours that were thrown at me, and generally EXISTING instead of LIVING right through my working life. ALL of that was supposed to set me up for a better future……WHAT WENT WRONG?
SO Here’s a question for you.
Did you know……that 80% of people coming towards the retirement part of their working life don’t have enough to maintain their CURRENT lifestyle.
I didn’t even think about that! I guess I was busy doing the busy work for someone else, that I didn’t even consider what my life might look like, that far ahead.
I don’t want you to think that all is hopeless, IT’S FAR FROM HOPELESS.
You see, Hope is an amazing thing, and what keeps us moving forward and not falling into a giant heap on the floor. Although this may at times feel like exactly what you want to do, that isn’t going to give you the result you want anyway!
THANK GOODNESS FOR ME, I CHOSE NOT TO DOWN THIS PATH.
The first thing I had to ask myself was ‘IF I’m going to make changes to my future,
- WHAT DO I WANT TO DO?
- WHAT’S MY PASSION?
- WHAT IS IT, that’s going to work for me?
- Then, it gets even more horrifying….
- WHAT SKILLS have I got to offer? What have I learned over my LIFE AND CAREER that may be of interest and VALUE to others.
- DO I HAVE ANYTHING that could be useful to others starting out on their journey?
- How can I add value to other’s lives and in the long run, create a better future for myself?
- WHO AM I??
- WHAT HAVE I GOT THAT OTHERS WILL WANT?
ALL very valid questions, but something that will take some serious soul searching to find the answers.
You DO have the answers to all of these things.
AND……..YES, there is a better future out there for you!
DON’T WAIT TILL YOU GET SO CLOSE TO RETIREMENT THAT YOU FEEL YOU HAVE NO OPTIONS…
THERE ARE MANY.
Luckily for me, I did my research online. There are some AMAZING opportunities for an online business. Opportunities that give you an AMAZING Quality of Life and a sustainable, enjoyable future.
You see, the secret to all of this is that while you are offering other’s a better future, you can also be building a far greater future for yourself. If you LOVE what you are doing, then the whole work side of it subsides and your journey becomes something of enjoyment, self-growth and gratification.
YES, there is a truck load of fear that will confront you up front, a FEAR that you have nothing of VALUE.
Yes you do!
There is no The Secret Formula............
However there is a system that allows you to GROW YOURSELF A SELF SUSTAINING FUTURE.
Create something of value! Be like the gardener in life and plant as many seeds as you feel you can manage. Approach it from an idea of how you can add value to other’s lives. What can I do to help?
Nurture these ideas, water them, protect them and expose them to as much light and fertility as you can. Over time, you will reap the benefits.
Sounds a little naff I know, but it really is as simple as changing your mindset and making the decision to take a GIANT leap of FAITH into a NEW FUTURE.
BUT IT DOES TAKE TIME AND ENERGY.
YES….There is light at the end of the tunnel, and provided that you stay focused on providing high value to others, the rewards will present themselves to you over time.
How do I do all of this, I hear you saying…
I don’t know anything about the internet and the social media environment.
If this is going to work for you, you will need to invest a little bit of time and energy. There are AMAZING resources and systems already in place that will assist you in making these changes in your life and supporting you through this massive change you’re about to undertake.
There are millions of people out there in the Internet Environment that have advise and ideas on how best you could move forward. Yes, it can be a little over whelming.
Fortunately for me, I have found an AMAZING group of people in SIX FIGURE MENTORS who have successfully been doing this for a number of years.
They have already done the hard work and formulated systems and trainings that will assist you in starting out on your journey of growth and enlightenment.
They have helped thousands of people just like you and me to move into a much more fruitful enjoyable lifestyle that will take me into a much better future. I now have a retirement to look forward to.
- A FUTURE that will allow me to spend quality time with my friends and family.
- A FUTURE that will give me a far better QUALITY OF LIFE.
- A FUTURE that gives me FINANCIAL SECURITY not only for myself, but for my family moving forward.
- A TIME rich future, where I can spend quality time with those that I love.
- A FUTURE that allows me to work where and when I want to, and still bring in a very healthy income. A FUTURE that gives me a DIGITAL LIFESTYLE that gives me the security and time that I worked so hard for all through my 9-5 worklife.
Even if you have no idea to start with, there are options that will allow you to move forward within their systems that can help you start out on your journey, and assist you in making your decisions with the support and assistance from the SFM family.
Please don’t wait till you’re getting to the end of your work life to make the changes, like I did.
