Fresh Starts, New Beginnings, And A New Chapter For Me
Another book about retirement? Yes, but mine is very different…
There are millions of retirement books, so why did I think it would be a good idea to publish another one? 98% of them focus on finances.
DARE to Discover Your Purpose is about the rest of your life in retirement – how you fill your days, how you find your inner treasure and how you remove the obstacles which stop you living the life you’ve always wanted to live.
It amazes me that so many retirement books give this scant consideration.
As, as far as I’m concerned, the old adage, ‘there’s more to life than money’ means more in retirement than at any other time of life.
Purpose is my currency
For me, finding purpose trumps everything else. It can, literally change your life.
Without purpose you risk fading away, spending more and more time doing ‘nothing’ and tiptoeing to an early grave. It’s not the life most people dream of.
But therein lies the problem. Society paints – and has painted for a very long time – a picture perfect retirement. One where freedom, indulgence, choice and even gluttony abound. Endless holidays, social occasions, rounds of golf, long lunches.
It sounds heavenly, but most people soon find the reality of retirement is anything but.
The reason? Because they have no purpose. There’s nothing to get them out of bed in the morning. No fire in their bellies. Instead, there’s emptiness, loneliness and despair.
It absolutely doesn’t have to be this way
I wrote the DARE course and subsequently, the book, to stop more retirees suffering the same fate.
Finding your purpose isn’t easy, but it’s absolutely possible and for me, a necessity.
I’ve helped hundreds of boomers find theirs and they’ve not looked back. They are out there, living their best life.
With this book, I have the chance to help millions more. That is my purpose. That is what makes me want to jump out of bed every morning…. and sometimes, even in the middle of the night!
It may surprise you to discover that the piece of advice at the heart of my book is: DON’T EVER STOP! ‘Retire’ at your peril.
Instead, keep working, but in a different way. Find something you love and that loves you. Change your mindset. Change your life.
