When Life Sucks...

Have you ever felt that you have lost your passion?

Hard knocks have come your way…. And you wonder what lies ahead for you…

I certainly have, however what I’ve discovered is that life is not a straight line. It would be great if it was, it’s the zig zag’s that make life interesting and challenging all at the same time.

Just by asking the question “How do I get my passion back” means you are already in the right place to restart living a life of joy. The reason is, to me, this shows you are aware of your current situation.

If you are blindly go on with life in a cloud and you can’t see ahead of you because of the storm clouds around you. It’s tough, you are just in survival mode.

When you are aware of your current situation, you can now be empowered to make choices.

One of those choices might be to, take a closer look at what’s not working in your life…

Make a list… everything… get it all down on paper.

Once you do that, write down beside each of those things, what it would be like if that particular ‘thing’ or situation was working – or put anther way, what is the opposite of that?

Ask yourself: What would it look like if that thing or situation was fantastic…what would that look like, feel like, smell like? How would you feel if that were the case?

Then send me an email on what choices you made as a result of doing this…

I’d love to know.

Life is great, the journey can be fun and rewarding.

The next step is to simply start...

Are you concerned with diminishing assets?

The current economic crisis is causing concern for many baby boomers. Counting on super as their main source of income in retirement, almost half of Boomers will run out of money.

High income Boomers look at their retirement as a change in career, while low income earners are more anxious about retirement since, while they would like leisure, they still need to work to maintain their financial independence.

Most Boomers are now on the downward slide in terms of average income. Baby Boomers don’t believe in taking risks but they desire opportunities to contribute to society in a flexible workplace.

It's tough out there, however it doesn't have to be so...

Beware the Wizard!

Beware the Wizard or BE the wizard....to say it another way...1. Fear, Loathe, Avoid, Shun And Be Ashamed By Dependence. 2. Be Fiercely Independent

It's no wonder my youngest son is just as much a free spirit as myself...you see often one of our favorite conversations - you know the ones, just the two of you in the car - would be centered around how people are like 'sheep'. No don't get me wrong it's not meant in any demeaning way...just seems to be if someone is doing something they 'just do the same thing' with out any real thought as to why they might be doing it.

After all, we as humans have a brain to think with, sheep don't..so they have an excuse...we don't.

It is this desire for 'independence' that drives me..what about you?

Are you tired of 'being a sheep' isn't it time you 'decided' to take control of YOUR life..after all you only get one shot at it.

Here's what I've done to take that step....
