Retire or not retire?
I was recently asked what I had planned for my future........
I said I wanted and had always planned to keep on working until I was at least 75 and put this down to my genes. I have lots of inspiring Aunties who are still very active in their 80’s and 90’s!
But now that I have really thought about that question, I am not sure my answer was actually the truth.
I think my Aunties are still active because they LOVE WHAT THEY DO and I am the same.
I have many friends who can’t wait to retire because they hate their job......well hate is too strong a word...... but they don’t really enjoy their work. It’s a means to an end but not fulfilling so they can’t wait to retire and be free of the shackles of work.
This is a regular theme with many of my friends, even if retirement means they will have to live on a much lower income OR release the equity out of their home to sustain their lifestyle!
I have realised that I was different because I felt differently about my career.
I love it!
I wake up every morning and I can’t wait to get into my day. Achieve my goals and reach for distant horizons.
I love the challenges, I REALLY LOVE THE CONTROL I HAVE OVER MY LIFE. My business keeps me inspired,makes me feel accomplished and makes me happy.
Don’t get me wrong, I have bad days when everything goes wrong. I have days when imposter syndrome kicks in big time. But on the whole being an entrepreneur gives me freedom, the most amazing sense of self achievement AND financial rewards!
That is why I have no plans whatsoever of retiring anytime soon. Not because of my genes but because I love being an entrepreneur and I want all of you to feel the same.
So In January I have lots of brilliant Free masterclasses in store to help you start 2022 full of exciting plans with a clear vision of howto achieve success
Watch out for the posts with all the details over the next few days.
