- No matter what your chronological age, are you “feeling” more Life has passed than is left to live?
- Ever wonder if you could work at something very different while still utilizing your talents, education and experience?
- Do you feel that the people and places to which you gave your life don’t appreciate it, recognize it, or might even think you should give more?
- Do you have a lot of “if only”, “would have/could have/should have” moments in your life lately?
Often during Midlife, many a time after a significant personal or professional event, individuals tend to re-examine their life and career goals. Most of us have asked these questions at least momentarily.
I’m still in my fifties, and I’m personally worth a million or more. I made a lot of money through long hours of hard work in the family owned trucking company I inherited. I wanted to retire, but the thought of sitting around not working is not my idea of having fun. I need to be active, but I was not sure what I could do to keep myself busy. I saw an article in our community paper about a lawyer who had successfully redirected her life during one of Sam’s workshops; so I booked myself into one, booked a room in a hotel and drove into the city to attend Sam’s weekend workshop.
One of the participants couldn’t understand why a man as successful as me would attend a Career/Life workshop. My answer was simple and kind of surprised me: I told him I wanted “to get a life”. Like I didn’t have one already! I have a cabin cruiser big enough to hold one of Sam’s workshops in. Only it had been sitting on dry ground for years because I was too busy to use it. I even bought a share in the marina where I stored the boat, just to offset the cost of storing it! During the workshop, while checking out my interests and his skills, it came out that I liked everything and anything related to water, especially boats and motors. By the end of the workshop, I decided to sell my trucking business and buy out the marina where I kept the boat. Though I guess for most people, the marina would be as much work as any other, for me, because I didn’t “have to” accept any work except what I wanted, my new career as marina owner and outfitter is exactly what I needed for retirement.
