Many people have anxiety about aging. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as “a declining phase of life.” However, today’s pre-centenarians and post-centenarians are reinventing our notion of aging. Like former U.S. President George H. Bush who celebrated his 70th birthday by going skydiving, many seniors are pushing the limits of their Innate potential and loving every minute of it, realizing that they have plenty of time left to live their life!
Today’s centenarians are teaching us that growing older is not a one-way ticket to deterioration and inactivity. They are showing us a new way of aging that is full of excitement and opportunity if you combine the right attitude with the right actions.
How do you feel about your life experience so far? Are you excited about your present and future? Would a change of personal habits, residence, relationships, career, health, or finances improve your level of happiness and prosperity? Will the choices you make today enable you to look back with no regrets when you are 80, 90 or 100?
You know the things you need to change. “Yes,” you say, “I know it is easier to be fit than fat. I know it is easier to be solvent than bankrupt. I know it is better to be in love than alone.” What are you doing with what you know? Don’t you think it’s time to stop just thinking about it and to start acting on change? You do have time to turn things around and take things to the next level.
