Have you ever sat back and considered what your retirement would look like after the hustle and bustle of present life? Have you wondered if there were a way somewhere for you to change what you see in your retirement? What kind of company of friends would you have after retirement? Would you still be able to live in your city home or would that be too much a thought to imagine?
The above questions are just a few of the many tough ones a lot of people would rather not ask themselves, but come on! These are the sort of questions that have the potential to help you write your own retirement.
You see, many rely heavily on the government or the corporate world to write their retirement package. Now do you think these could write the best package for you, to be financed by their hard-earned money over the rest of your life? I am sure that your guess is as good as mine. If you are an average person on a regular job, your retirement package will also be an average and regular package! Fair enough, isn’t it?
Now, what if money (or dare I say greed!) was not an issue, and your employers had given you the opportunity to decide what your retirement package should look like and for how long it should last, spanning from generation to generation of your offsprings? Would it be the same as or even close to that which they decide for you? I bet a big NO here!
Now, let’s face it! Our bodies can only enjoy a rising exuberance of energy for a span of time, after which it picks, stays constant and finally starts to decline. This is true for every normal person! You would have to follow the pattern called the growth curve. Otherwise you would have to be some superman (superwoman)! Have you not seen this even in the greatest of our athletes? They rise from obscurity to stardom, stay there and gosh! Their star begins to dim. And suddenly no major league teams need their services, except as coaches, pundits and commentators if they are sharp upstairs! However, since a team of 20 players does not need 20 trainers, many of the superstars fade into oblivion! This is normal you say, not so? For you, it does not have to be that way, if you can decide to be different.
With the necessary skills and passion to write your own retirement package, you can do it. Men and women have done it, you can do it too! You can keep glowing even after energy levels are going down. You can still enjoy life after retirement, and you must plan to enjoy your life until that dreaded last breath! This does not come with living an average life where you are at the mercy of your employers or the government! You need to take matters that affect you into your own hands. One practical system that has helped many people and continues to help many more on daily basis is the Plug-In Profit Site, a service which builds you your own free money making website. Used consistently, this has helped a lot of people earn derseved retirement.
Decide what you really want, devise or learn ways that can take you to where you want to be and get what you want. The easiest way to do this is to follow people who have already done it – those who are writing or have already written their retirement packages! And you would be surprised that many would be willing to share with you their secrets, if you demonstrate before them that you really wanted to do it. And need I tell you? The best time to start doing that is today and now! Change the pattern of your life. Fill your mind with prosperous thoughts, stop blaming people, organizations, events or even places – these have nothing to do with your present situation. In fact, these will all be working for you if you only start to work for yourself.
By learning new tricks (skills if you like), doing them and finally sharing them with others you will begin to change the course of your life, and can as well be on your way to writing your retirement package. How would you want people to remember you, if at all? Plan to leave a legacy behind so that when it is finally all over for you, others can look at your footprints and get inspiration for their own lives!
Numerous life-changing opportunities are available out there, if you only look for them. One approach that has helped many people take their destiny into their own hands is diversifying their sources of income. Even simple ways for generating extra income can mean a lot in financial life, if done on a sustained basis. For example, by starting your own home business, you can supplement your job income and even eventually replace it by living entirely off your business.
