You may have been shuttled out of the workforce and forced into retirement but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of your career. Many people in advanced age use this opportunity to start a new life, launched new careers, achieving more success, and going places where they’ve never been before.
If you’re getting within spitting distance of retirement age, don’t worry, it’s not the end of the road. It’s just the beginning. Not being shacked by the nine-to-five can be just the liberation you needed to discover your life’s purpose, message, passion, and/or mission, and to give you the drive to live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.
You need not be content to sit around the house, get numb, and watch the tube. These really can be your golden years, as you mine the gold of your life, share it with the world, and be greatly appreciated and remunerated for your caring and sharing.
Far too many seniors accept their lot of retirement, disengaging from life, just going through the motions while their immune systems decline, boredom becomes comfortably numb, and increasing one’s propensity to fall victim to depression. This is the slippery slope which lulls many a senior into a pattern of health decline.
On the other hand, there are others who are filling their time with invaluable activities which help to build a better world, and thankfully, the methods of doing so are so overwhelmingly abundant, it would be hard to notice that all you need is a communication device with an Internet connection to make a difference in the world.
You have lived a full life, complete with wisdom and learning which younger and future generations could benefit from. You have specialties and experiences that are unique to you and stories which could only be told from your individual perspective.
I know, even thinking about taking on such an endeavor starts up that negative self-talk machine which insists that you’re not good enough, smart enough, educated enough, or worthy enough to do what it takes to make a difference. You must choose whether you let those voices control you, or you squash them to push your value forward.
It might mean learning a new thing, how to look at interfacing with technology in different ways, maybe even taking a class or getting some coaching to help you get started in the right direction… But this one thing I know:
There are people out there on the Internet looking for what you have to offer every day. Every day. That’s no joke. And guess what? They are not finding it; not if you haven’t put it out there. They’re searching… and all they hear are crickets in the background.
Now, you might have the best retirement program and nest egg a person could have, without any financial worries whatsoever, but you still might be interested in the idea of making money with your efforts spent online.
Many people in their older years are turning their spare time into cold, hard cash, just by monetizing their efforts online. For many of them, it is the difference between survival or barely getting by to living a life of abundance or all-out thriving financially.
The beauty of all this emerging technology is that you can start something new and build it into a substantial and profitable organization or business in very little time with little or no startup capital; not like back in the day.
Your message is burning inside you, just waiting to be released and the world is eagerly awaiting your emergence, waiting to hear your words, and to see what it is you have to offer the community, locally, and at large.
People are searching for your message every day, waiting to hear and find you and your voice.
Will you answer the call to a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place?
