“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

We love that quote by Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God.

And yet, the old-school notion of a successful retirement is all about comfort, isn’t it? The comfort of having enough money in the bank to last a lifetime. The comfort of owning one’s own home – lock, stock and barrel. Comfort in knowing you don’t have to get up Monday morning unless you darn well feel like it. But, comfort – while nice – usually meant more of the same routine. Safe, secure….borrrrring!

For today’s retirees, comfort isn’t enough. That’s why you see 70-year-olds skydiving on your Facebook feeds. Or, why your 65-year-old neighbor is training for her first marathon. Or, why boomers are traveling head-first into developing countries, armed only with Duolingo apps and a willingness to volunteer.

At Fit-To-Retire, we see retirement as the perfect opportunity to spring out of your comfort zone, knowing your coach and your comprehensive plan will be there to catch you when you jump. We call it the confidence zone, a place where anything is possible.
