“Don’t close the book when bad things happen in your life. Just turn the page and begin a new chapter.”
Did you know that the average Social Security payout for retirees is just 29 months?
Although most of us think of retirement as our “Golden Years,” and while we continue to hear of all sorts of fantastic new medical breakthroughs to extend the quality and length of life, this statistic is shocking. But it improves considerably when three critical factors are present:
- Friends, family, community
- Financial stability – a nest egg
- A future-oriented mindset
The level of engagement and overall life purpose can diminish with retirement. Retirees often find much less meaning in life and a reason to get up in the morning when their vocational years are over.
What relational, financial, and mindset factors can and will you put in place to keep writing each new exciting chapter in your life for many more healthy, and happy years to come?
