IF YOU ARE OVER 50 CHANCES ARE YOU MAY NOT HAVE A CHOICE ABOUT CARRYING ON WITH YOUR JOB?
If you disagree with the above statement I believe you are in an extremely fortunate position but if not it is time that you took the situation into your own hands and used some of the many resources available to you to improve your life.
As part of the development of The Orange online Health & Wellness platform I have become a retirement coach and have used the tools given to me in this training to develop my new business and live one amazing life.
The starting point as crazy as it may seem was a Vision Board and this still hangs above my desk and the top saying in bright red is “My life is crazy and chaotic – and couldn’t BE BETTER”. This is so true and the Vision Board is about 18 months old.
Admittedly I did not stop at the Vision Board but went on to do a coaching course and then went on to become a Retirement Coach. The fascinating thing was that none of the planning was rocket science. It was very simple and logical but there was a plan that I was helped to follow and plan. I had to do homework and present it at the next session but this created a huge shift in the mindset and made me commit to the plan. I was not drifting off into the wilderness dreaming that life would get better for me.
If you are at this stage there are a few things I would strongly suggest you consider doing:
- Keep a journal of your thoughts and ideas
- Consider the areas of your life that bring the most value to you
- Consider the roles you have played in life and what you enjoyed the most
- Consider what you fear most in moving forward

You may be wondering what the bottom line is and what I want to assure you is that you can make things happen and change if you want to.
Dream It! Do It! Be It!
