Are You Going To Retire In Time To Enjoy Life

By: Rick Lim

My grandfather worked for almost 40 years before he retired. Now he just works on his yard and tinkers with tractors all day. You see, it never excited him to travel or buy extravagant things such as a Rolex, and myself, the thought of working until I am 60-65 scares me, in fact, what the heck am I going to do at 65. Now many of you would just love to be able to retire comfortably, with 401,000 in your bank account and a small pension. But the reality is quite simple, old age pension is probably not going to be there for me, in 37 years from now that is. So what am I going to do about it? What are you going to do about it. Nobody wants to work forever, so wouldnt it make more sense to go into debt now, enjoy life while you can, and then work until you die. Since most of us will work until we die anyways, you might as well enjoy life.

After all, its at the end of a mans life when he realizes the importance of the desicions he made in the beginning.

With that being said, do you find yourself reaching your life long dreams on the current path you are taking? Probably not, and I know my dreams are not that huge, but earning $50,000 a year was not going to get me there, think about it. And my point is very simple, lets say I earned $50,000 a year since I started working - I didnt but imagine I did - so the last 10 years would have been $500,000. Minus the taxes and and drinking and all that other good stuff like golfing. Now the average income is about half of that, so it really begs the question, and my point for writing this. Are you going to retire at 65 in a trailer park, OR are you going to do something about your current path in life.

Now lets just say that you are happy with your life. Well so was I, but I knew there had to be a better way. After all, isnt this the land of opportunity, where rags to riches stories are made everyday. So why not you.. why not, you probably have seen these people who make tons of money online, but never recognize them because they are jsut like you and I. So please do something about your life, before its too late. By this I simply mean that you need to live life. After all, the next time you talk to a senior, ask them, " Did you have a good life? " Or " Did you have a good JOB throughout your life" You see my point, nobody is meant to Work Life, they are meant to Live Life.
