Fear and anxiety seem like constants in our modern daily lives. On any given day, we have a plethora of things to worry about on the macro and micro level.
Retirement brings its own special bag of anxieties and fears:
Will I have enough? Will I lose all my friends? How can I keep contributing to the community? What will I do with myself all day? Can my wife/husband stand me hanging around the house all day? What if I get sick before I really start enjoying myself? Will the kids really want us coming to see them all the time? Will anyone even listen to me anymore?
But, what if your approach to retirement was fearless? What if you could cast all doubts and concerns aside and imagine yourself doing all the things you’ve always wanted to do in life: Traveling to exotic locales, mentoring high-risk kids, opening an Irish import shop (or pub), going back to school, learning to play the violin, becoming a barista, salsa dancing, teaching, acting, ministering….
If you can imagine it, you’re halfway there. All you need to do is figure out the how, when and where.
If you can’t even imagine it, you obviously have more work to do.
Les Brown said, “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream another dream.” And, to realize those goals and dreams, you have to be fearless. Or, at least, have enough confidence to keep your fears under control.
