Have you seen the expressionless crowd of faces?
I see this scene around me here at work. Team mates just going through the motions. Barely a smile. Barely even acknowledgement that those around them exist. Their quiet, hushed conversations can be heard if you listen intently. Their last day of work will be the beginning of their life. Ahhh the promised land of retirement. That sunny, golden place that makes their tired eyes light up and their heart skip a beat with pure joy. The glorious day that they can finally start living life.
Waking up on their first day of retirement, they realize that many of the beautiful dreams they once had, are now impossible for whatever reason. Retirement becomes a time of regrets, of ‘I wish I had done’ moments. Of lost opportunities and broken dreams and promises. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen it or how it makes me feel.
This whole heart wrenching scene is the reason why I am reaching out to the world. I want my readers to start taking life by the balls, and even giving a bit of a tight squeeze just so it is a little uncomfortable, instead of suffering from ‘what if’.
People all over the world, ordinary everyday people, are embracing the discomfort, facing their fear, and charging towards fulfilling their dreams. No rich family. No massive inheritance. No golden handshake. Just a deep urge to make a positive change in their life.
The one certainty in life – death – is inching ever closer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but frankly some people just kind of forget that today or tomorrow could be their last day on earth. Tell me, if you knew the exact day you were going to die, and it was sooner than you imagined, what would you change?
Transformation can be immediate, or they might take a little fine tuning and a little time to plan. But you can adjust your mindset now and move towards the life you have always dreamed of.
Take life by the balls. Make your dreams happen.
