According to Dr. Richard Johnson, the leading authority on retirement options, “the “new retirement” is not an ending, it’s a new beginning, the start of a new life of vastly expanded proportions.”
Unfortunately, a large number of the 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day still view retirement as the end of their personal growth. They may then find their remaining years drifting into boredom, low self-esteem, limited social interactions, and a feeling of lost purpose.
However, there is an equally large number of baby boomers who sense this is the best time to live their dream, to make new self-directed choices to grow, prosper and make significant contributions to society. In essence, they will choose to finally live their purpose.
Which group you will fall in depends on your attitude, your pre-retirement preparations and your perceptions of future opportunities. Your retirement success is within your own control but it will take some deep introspections and self-awareness training.
