How to Influence People: Be a Farmer Not a Hunter

It’s Not A Sales Job

If you view building your network as a sales job then your going about it all wrong. It’s not about how to recruit people, it’s about how to influence people. People in most cases hate to be recruited, to be sold, but they don’t mind being influenced, to buy.

Don’t Be A Recruiter

It’s the difference between being a hunter and being a farmer, just like the difference between being a recruiter or a person of influence.

The Hunter

A hunter is a sales person who chases and hunts, new leads and opportunities. He likes the excitement of the hunt, he builds a blind to surprise the lead. He uses a high powered weapon to kill any objections. Once they “bag” their prey they are on to the next target. They have little patience and are only interested in the hunt.

The Farmer

A farmer works his leads and opportunities. He is interested in nurturing and growing his leads. He cultivates the relationship, looking for ways that it can benefit both the lead and himself. With a thoughtful and respectful approach he cultivates trust. With caring solutions to problems he kills the weeds of doubt. Training and follow-up provides the fertilization, that leads to a harvest of bounty.

A Warm Body

A person who recruits can build a network fast, but it won’t grow and be self sustaining because the recruiter is never interested in the recruit as a person, they are just a warm body to them.

A Person You Care About

A person who uses influence  may build his network slower but it’s stable and self sustaining because he cares about people, he wants them to grow, just as much if not more then the network.

It;s About Sharing

When you influence people to join a network you want to show them how they will benefit. Showing them how they can take control of their lives, it’s about sharing not taking. The five biggest benefits of being in a network are.

Five Benefits

  1. Content Resources: The sharing of information, the how to and what for. The greatest resource are the people in your network.You become part of a positive and motivated team that has you in their best interest.
  2. Personal Support: People need people, especially now. The days of being a lone wolf are over. More and more we survive and endure by supporting each other. With the help and support of your network you can change tremendously as a person, physically, intellectually and financially.
  3. Help: No one wants to see you succeed more then your network. They are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure you get the training, information and resources you need. Your in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
  4. Sense of Belonging: This fundamental human need is enhanced within a network striving for a common goal. To see people in your network achieve their dreams, and help you achieve yours is what makes life enjoyable.
  5. Personal Empowerment: Become the person of your dreams, living a life of freedom and happiness. The more you grow as a person the bigger your income becomes. Doubt and worry are replaced by certainty and confidence as you watch your business grow to heights you never dreamed of.

Reason Most People Join

If your lucky enough to be brought into a network by a person who influenced you as opposed to selling you on a product or service, you understand better then most, that most people will buy into your network because they like and trust you. Don’t be a hunter of people, be a farmer.

Obesity in America

Biggest Health Issue Facing America

In his book, “The Coming Jobs War”, Jim Clifton states that one of the biggest health issues facing America is the problem of Obesity. He states, “The CDC concludes that more than two-thirds of American adults, aged 20 and older, are simply to fat.Approximately one-third of Americans are a healthy weight, one-third are overweight, and one-third are obese. This is a significant contributor to roughly 70% of the $2.5 trillion annual healthcare expense.” It’s probably higher now considering that Clifton’s book was published in 2011.

The Cannabinoid System

In researching the problem of obesity in America, I was surprised to find that new medical studies have shown that weight gain is not only a matter of how much we eat, but more importantly how our bodies metabolize the food we eat. In the book “You Staying Young” by Dr.s Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz They go into great detail about the chemical system in the body called the Cannabinoid System. They state that this system not only dictates how well our bodies metabolize food, but also how hungry we feel and even the foods we crave.

Blocked Neural Receptors

It has to do with the neural pathways in our brains and throughout our bodies, and the fact that a lot of the neural receptors in our bodies  are closed or blocked. When these neural receptors are closed we simply do not metabolize food as well as we should and as such always feel hungry.

Best Kept Secret In America

Scientists are just now starting to understand these processes, but considering the book “You Staying Young” was published in 2007, I’m surprised how little publicity this issue has gotten, and how few doctors have even heard about it, considering it directly affects the #1 health problem facing America today.

Big Business Has A Vested Interest In Keeping It Quiet

Could it be, that because this research refutes the basic claims of the billion dollar Diet and Nutrition industry, that this information is being censored? Is this just another example were big business impedes the health of America?  Diet and Nutrition are big business in America, and they have a vested interest in refuting any research that runs counter to their firm beliefs, that weight gain is primarily based on how much you eat and exercise.

If Diets Worked Why Are Two-Thirds Of Americans Overweight?

Is it no wonder that products that promote neurological health are meeting with so much resistance. While experts refute the claims that you can lose weight drinking weight-loss coffee, thousands of people are seeing amazing results, not just with weight loss but with mood and mental clarity. Quit listening to the Diet Gurus and give our coffee a try, what have you got to lose?

Breaking Bad Habits: The Number One Bad Habit

It’s Your Thinking

What is a habit? The basic definition is that it’s a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing or feeling, acquired through the repetition of a mental experience, that becomes imprinted in your neural pathway. Every habit forms a mental loop, that includes a cue, a routine and a reward.

 

Don’t Compromise Yourself

If you have developed the habit of negative self-talk, ask yourself whether that dialogue is getting you closer to what you really want or not. Our world needs participants, not passengers. If your nervous and fearful about life, and your negative self-talk shows this you are compromising yourself.

The Mind See What It Belives

It’s only through research, quieting the mind, and being aware, that we begin to see that we are the only ones limiting ourselves, from achieving everything we want in life. We become aware of these dis-empowering beliefs, (by listening to our own self talk) and start to realize that our minds, are filtering our life experiences to support these false beliefs.

The Scripts In Our Heads

We need to realize that everybody is nervous about different aspects of life.Successful people have learned to overcome their nervousness, their doubts,  because they have developed empowering self talk. The scripts they play in their heads over and over are not of lack and scarcity but affirmations of strength and perseverance and faith in themselves.

Chang Fear Into Excitement

Everybody has self-doubt ; everybody has fear; everybody has anxiety. But through developing and holding empowering self talk, you learn to overcome those thoughts.You can change fear into excitement.

Don’t Cheat Yourself

If we passively accept the excuses of our own negative self-talk, if we let the script play unchallenged, we cheat ourselves and everyone else in our lives. Be willing to step away from the worn path of mediocrity and corporate conformism.

Become Aware

Once you become aware of the script in your head, you sensitize yourself to it, and every time you hear it start to play, you replace it with a positive script. Soon the script, “I’m a loser and don’t deserve success”, is replaced with “If I do my best I’l succeed and be valued”

Whats The Reward

Replacing bad habits with good ones is realizing that the reward for the habit doesn’t serve you, and never has. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/dbcrist/blog/breaking-bad-habits

The Law Of Cause And Effect

We realize that our divine mind, follows the natural and unchangeable law of cause and effect. We come to realize that we are engaged with a never ending real time conversation with ourselves.We realize that the habit of self talk has immediate and concrete consequences, it’s the cause. If the self talk is positive we are energized and strong and the world is open to possibilities. If the self talk is negative, you feel it, even to the level of the cells in your body. Your self talk comprises and reflects your personal truth. With everything you feel say and do, that contaminated self image will show itself as you present it to the world. The effect, is that the world will respond accordingly.

A Product That Performs

Nobody can promote something they don’t believe in. Behind any successful marketing strategy is a product that performs, that not only meets but exceeds expectations.

How Our Bodies Work

Scientists are only now beginning to truly understand how our bodies metabolize the foods we eat. To understand why two people eating the same foods can have totally different results, has baffled people forever. Or why some people feel hungry all the time, and others don’t. But one thing is for sure, weight loss is much more than controlling calories and being physically active, it’s about understanding and controlling our Endocannabinoid System.

If you haven’t heard of it, don’t be surprised, many Doctors are just now becoming familiar with this new research.http://smarterfittness.com/obesity-in-america-new-researchOur Endocannabinoid System, simply put, is how different hormones affect certain neurotransmitters in the brain, that control not only our feelings of hunger, but the foods we crave and how we metabolize them.

Five Years Ago

Five years ago we have developed a neurological system, in a cup of coffee. To date we have done 90 million in sales and are in 91 countries.

It’s Coffee

Our SlimRoast Optimum Coffee has been formulated with natural appetite suppressants along with detox components, powered by our patented Nitric Oxide Antioxidant Booster. Not only will you get exciting results managing your weight, with one cup a day, but you will love the taste of this delicious dark roast coffee.

Keto Creamer

For those who like cream with their coffee, we’ve developed a sugar free Keto creamer, that will not only help you get to your goals faster but keep you healthy longer. This sugar free addition to your coffee, delivers healthy fats to your system that enhance Ketosis. You burn fat rather than sugar.

Unique Approach

This unique approach to weight loss not only opens closed neural pathways to enhance the metabolism of fats and sugars, it also reduces cravings and improves your overall sense of well being, and mental clarity.

Opportunities

Because this product is only sold direct, it offers our customers some unique earning opportunities, both single-level and multi-level, depending on your talents and desires. While this product will benefit everyone concerned about weight, not everyone will want to market it.

But if your looking,

  • To own your own business, your mini franchise
  • To have time freedom to work when you want
  • To not have to commute
  • To build a residual income
  • To own your life
  • To satisfy a dream

 

No Risk

To have all this at little or no risk to you, you owe it to yourself to at least try our coffee. And when you see the pounds slip away on one cup a day, you to will become a believer. And when you believe you can change your life.

Get A New Check

Simply get 10 people to become preferred customers, each buying one box (30 cups) a month,you’d make 150.00 every month. If they buy the creamer every month it’s an additional 150.00. So helping ten people, lose weight and feel better, you’d make 300.00 a month. Once they see how it works they are going to be asking you how they can do the same. It’s just that easy to get a new check each month.

Check the site below to become a preferred customer, if it performs for you, it may be the online opportunity you’ve been looking for.

How To Get A Job Online

Your Creative Imagination

Have you ever thought of the possibility that there’s more to you, than what your living? If you have than you have felt your creative imagination stirring. Maybe it’s trying to tell you something. According to Maxwell Maltz, we are all “goal striving mechanisms”. And it’s our God given imagination that pushes us to be better and do better than we think we can. Too many people, ignore this voice within themselves.

It’s Healthy and Normal To Want More

It’s not selfish or egotistical to want more out of life. On the contrary it’s healthy and normal. Too many people choose to live passive, reactive lives. Many don’t even realize that they are cheating both themselves and their families. If your depressed and feeling unfulfilled it may be because your not listening to this inner voice.

Our Minds Limit Us

Because of our experiences, and our very “important” opinions of them, we have formed beliefs that continue to shape our lives. Our minds naturally limit our perceptions, only to things that are in-line with our beliefs. We shut down or ignore our natural creative imaginations, In doing so we deny that which gives life meaning.

A Life Without Goals

When we stop striving to attain goals, we are blocking this essential life force, feelings of inadequacy and doubt start to creep in, and we age. When we have no goals, we are prone to go around in circles. Life becomes repetitive and purposeless, we become reactionary and egocentric. We become over concerned about how we appear to others, of what others will think. This concern blocks us from healthy normal social interactions, isolates us, and we age.

Do The Uncomfortable

To combat this a person has to get out of their head, and take action. They need to discover the power within and the courage to do things that are uncomfortable. This is especially true of the Boomer Generation.

Re-Enter The Workforce

As society continues to evolve away from the traditional Linear Life Plan of yesterday and into the Cycular Life Plan of today and tomorrow. People normally thought retired are going to want to re-enter the work force, for any number of reasons, either they need to or they want to. Either way it’s a goal, and striving for a goal keeps you from aging.

Age Discrimination

Even though age discrimination has been against the law for decades it still poses a substantial hurdle to a Boomer re-entering the job market. And no matter what the need, the only jobs available to Boomers over 60, are mind-numbing service jobs wearing an apron and paper hat, or driving for Uber or Lyft.

Trapped By Our Beliefs

Because of the experiences, and beliefs, they have had, their minds don’t even consider Internet Marketing as a possibility, they only consider jobs that are in-line with their beliefs. So many talented personable and persuasive Boomers are wasting their God given talents, because they don’t even hear that inner voice, that is telling them they can be better, and do better than they think they can. When you don’t hear and follow that inner voice, you age.

Why Network Marketing

Network Marketing is your own mini-franchise. With a low buy in, (often less than what it costs to drive for Uber), you can have access to state of the art, internet technology that is both easy and effective to use, with proven duplicatable sales systems. Work when you want, where you want, while taking advantage of multiple income streams, the best one being residual, where you get paid over and over for doing the job once.

Grow As A Person

Network Marketing grows you as a person, as you realize that the real reward, is in helping others discover a life they only ever dreamed about. You’ll be amazed, as the old false image of yourself disappears only to be replaced by an authentic self-image filled with confidence and a healthy self-esteem. All it takes is having the courage to overcome the paradigms of our mind, formed by our experiences. Don’t die with your music inside you, live long and prosper.

Why Boomers Get UberJobs

Why are so many Boomers paying $225.00 in Las Vegas to get Uber jobs?

Why are so many delivering food for Grubhub or Postmates?

Is it because:

  • Uber Job Ads are everywhere, and they hire almost everbody
  • They can’t find any other job
  • The Job is easy, no Boss, no set schedule
  • It’s fun to ruin your car for minimum wage
  • It’s better than wearing a fast food paper hat

Or is it because:

  • They can’t remember what it’s like to have passion, hope, optimism and energy
  • Their self-esteem and self-image tell them they are capable of nothing else
  • They are so afraid at failing at something again, they no longer even try
  • Because of rampant age discrimination
  • Internet Job search is just a catfish hoax
  • It’s the role assigned to Boomers by an insensitive, hostile and hurtful world

Most Abused Generation

While Boomers should be given credit for saving the American Economy by bringing it internet technology, it must also be noted that the Boomer Generation has also been the most abused by the same internet.

First Generation To Apply Exclusively Online

They were the first generation that could only get a job by filling out on-line applications, for a lot of Boomers they were forced to get computers and fax machines and copiers simply to be able to do a job application. But after sending hundreds of on-line applications it started to become clear that nobody was even bothering to read most of them.

Job Search Abuses

Taking away the face to face component to a job search has dehumanized this once democratic process. It has allowed companies to engage in wide spread discrimination, while giving applicants nothing but false hope. The job search process of today, is only a funnel for companies to sell desperate job seekers products like resume builders or technical education.

Over promised and under delivered

Because they were the first generation, to be marketed by the internet, they were over promised and under delivered on a wide variety of internet startups. This was before plug and play, so they had to plod their way through things like DOS and all kinds of initial applications that were not only not user-friendly but in a lot of cases didn’t work at all. You had to become an expert in order to run an application.

Wild West of the Internet

Problems with dial up modems and not having enough RAM were rampant. With the rise of unregulated Networking companies and tech services the stage was set for abuses They suffered horribly, at the hands of unscrupulous networkers, who sold only pyramid schemes and no product, Attorney Generals, even today are still finding abuses and scams Nationwide, and are still trying to establish consistent ground rules. The Telecom and AOL fiascoes only added to the confusion.

 No Wonder so Many have Checked Out

While rapid technological advancement powered our economy to new heights, the abuses and growing pains were felt by the Boomers more than any other generation. It’s not surprising that so many Boomers have basically checked out. But if the best part of your life is in the past, something is out of whack.

Are You Dissatisfied

It’s supposed to be as we get older we become more competent, not less. Life is supposed to get better, because we are supposed to be better at it. Studies show that 1/3 of Americans are dissatisfied with their lives. I think the ratio is higher with Boomers. Because of being burned countless times, the Boomers suffer from a paralysis of analysis

How Our Minds Work

Mel Robbins, the motivational speaker and life coach, has talked extensively about how our minds work. According to research she says that the human mind has the following characteristics:

  • That the Mind is not designed to do things that are scary or uncomfortable.
  • The Mind is only motivated to do things that are easy.
  • The Mind is designed to stop us from hurting ourselves
  • The Mind does this by hesitating in making a decision.

It’s About the Decisions We Make

She goes on to say that we are one decision away from a totally different life. That life comes down to decisions, change a decision change your life. It’s all about how we respond to the shame of failure. Blame is a decision we make, checking out is a decision we make. She says we are trapped in a knowledge/action gap. That worry and self-doubt are habits we have formed over time.

Worry and Self-Doubt

Worry comes because we are afraid of something happening,it can be eliminated by converting it to excitement that something is going to happen, our bodies don’t know the difference. Everybody struggles with self-doubt, successful people have learned how to overcome those thoughts.

Stop Thinking So Much

Stop thinking so much, the Mind has two speeds, autopilot and emergency stop. We have to force ourselves to do the stuff we need to do, to be the person we want to be. The soul needs exploration and growth. The only way to do this is to force ourselves to do the uncomfortable. To go outside our comfort zone.

Help Others To Help Yourself

Instead of being safe and comfortable driving for Uber, find a product or service that can help people, live better lives. By helping others, you will help yourself.

Maxwell Maltz and Self-Image

What Is Self-Image

According to Maxwell Maltz in his ground breaking book “Psycho-Cybernetics”, Self-Image is the sub-conscious framework, of how we see life and ourselves. Everyone has one and most of us are not even aware of it, and that’s a problem. It means we may have powerful beliefs about ourselves and the world, that we can’t challenge or change because we’re not even aware of them.

Internal Dialogue

There are things that influence us and how we present ourselves to the world, that we are totally unaware of. A lot of people have an internal dialogue, that sounds like this.

  • This is “less than” and “less than” is good enough for me.
  • I can’t do that.
  • I will never achieve what I think that person has.
  • I don’t deserve what they have.
  • I know I’m getting cheated, but nice is what I’m supposed to be, I’ll be nice rather than complain.
  • I don’t have leadership qualities.

Negative Beliefs

The things that we fixedly believe about ourselves are often negative and we don’t even realize it. We create our environment based on these false narratives. We script a life with certain income, certain relationships, and a certain lifestyle, based on these internal narratives. Although consciously we say we want more, we’re very uncomfortable about taking any steps toward change.

Others Hold Your Beliefs

Amazingly we often opt for a job or lifestyle that is admittedly unfulfilling, rather than an unfamiliar alternative. This is compounded if people in your life are working off your script as well. Any behavior or decision that goes off script can make them feel threatened and anxious.

Psycho-Cybernetics

Maxwell Maltz in his book “Psycho-Cybernetics”, goes into detail how our self-image is the fundamental and outcome determination element of our life experience. That it develops and occurs both passively and unconsciously. This self-image is strengthened and reinforced by the choices we make in life, and how we express them. These choices are made with no appreciation to the gravity of what’s really going on.

Self-Image Affects Everything

The face we present to the world is based on this self-image. These self-generated characteristics are presented to the world in every action we take and are reflected in everything that happens. Every success or failure, every result in terms love, money, achievement, recognition peace or harmony, flows from our self-image.

Opinions Are Not Facts

According to Maltz we complicate our difficulties by confusing facts with opinion. We not only add our opinion to any fact but we put as much weight of our opinion as to the facts. Our self-image is the key to our personality and behaviors, it sets the perimeter of what we do in any situation. The types of personalities display the same behaviors, positive vs. negative, happy vs. sad, healthy vs. sickly, strong vs. weak, young vs. old, successful vs. unsuccessful and winner vs. loser.

Maltz spelled failure as:

  • F) Frustration with the inability to accept reality
  • A) Aggressiveness due to the frustration
  • I) Insecurity or an inner feeling of inadequacy
  • L) Loneliness through a lack of oneness, poor social skills
  • U) Uncertainty, trying to avoid making mistakes or taking responsibility
  • R) Resentment due to perceived victimization
  • E) Emptiness no creativity, no goals

We have to de-hypnotize ourselves and nothing has meaning unless we give it meaning. You can start doing this by performing the following:

  • Be aware of your thinking and behaviors
  • Reprogram your unconscious through visualization daily
  • Be too big to be threatened
  • Relax
  • Don’t take yourself so serious
  • Accept that making mistakes is how we learn
  • Stop criticizing ourselves and others
  • Improvise more
  • Stop scripting yourself

Maltz spelled success as:

  • S) Sense of direction
  • U) Understanding of others
  • C) Courage to make mistakes
  • C) Charity for the feelings of others
  • E) Esteem for one’s self
  • S) Self-Confidence by remembering our successes
  • S) Self-Acceptanace of where you are right now

What’s Holding You Back?

It’s our self-image that keeps us from living the life of our dreams. Experts agree that it’s never too late to change and to recognize what is holding us back. We need to create a new plan for living, NOW. We need to stop living a life of routine existence, NOW. If playing it safe has become our only purpose, we have lost our passion. A life with no passion, is no life. It ages you prematurely. Don’t accept mediocrity. We were blessed with a creative imagination and a goal seeking mechanism called the mind. We are not our mind, we have a mind, we use it, to create the world we desire and believe we deserve.

LIST BUILDING: More Important Then Ever

What’s Better, a Cold Lead or a Warm Referral

Everyone knows that a referral is much more valuable than a lead.
Referrals come from people you know, family, friends and business
acquaintances. This network of people is often called your List.

The Value of Lists

People are just now starting to realize the inherent value of their
personal List, of family, friends and acquaintances. If people had
known how valuable their Lists would become, they would have taken much
better care of nurturing and growing them, throughout their lifetime.

Everyone Has a List

If Boomers think back at all the people, friends, business
associates, mentors and mentees they have had over their lifetime, their
list would easily be in the 100s if not in the 1000s.

It Used To Be Hard To Maintain a List

It used to be that maintaining contact with that many people over many
years and many moves, was very laborious and time-consuming,
consequently many of us have allowed good friends and valuable business
contacts slip into obscurity. Many of us have loss contact with people,
we wish were in our lives today.

The Beauty of Technology

That is no longer the case. Today there are numerous e-mail list
building strategies. With technology, it’s now possible to create your
own auto responder, that not only can reach out and touch your List on
special anniversaries, birthdays, etc. but can be used to update contact
information in the event of a move, divorce or a change in e-mail or
phone number.

Maintaining Your List Is Important

As people realize the potential value in their personal Lists, this
maintenance not only makes sense, but may be one of the most financially
astute things you can do for yourself.

You Never Know When You’ll Want To Use Your List

As people live longer, the old Linear Life Plan is giving way to the new Cyclear Life Plan .http://smarterfittness.com/introductory-content-why-the-linear-life-plan-is-disappearing-last Because of the increase in longevity people are engaging in multiple careers throughout their lives. The chance that at sometime down the road you might want to extend an offer or a business opportunity to your list is very real.

Don’t Squander It

There is no doubt that someone will consider an offer or opportunity much more seriously if it’s coming from someone they have known for years and even decades. Too many Boomers are squandering this valuable resource. They go to their grave without ever utilizing it, to either help themselves or their children.

It’s Only An Offer

An offer or opportunity made to your List is never a hard sell but rather an invitation to take a look. It’s something you find of value and your list might also or know of someone who would. The value of a List can be huge, especially if it involves a Network Marketing endeavor, http://smarterfittness.com/why-diets-dont-work where you earn a percentage of everyone you bring in. A very comfortable residual income can be created, very quickly.

The Rule Of Three

Our society is becoming more interconnected, and “The Rule Of Three” is very real. We are all only three people away from a millionaire, somebody who could possibly change your life, and very easily banish the fear of financial insecurity from your life.

The Linear Life Plan: Age Discrimination in the Workplace

Why The Linear Life Plan Is Disappearing

Last Update: February 14, 2019

 

The Linear Life Plan

Until recently the charting of our
lives has been very neat and predictable. First you learned, then you
worked, then you died. There are a number of reasons we accepted the
Linear Life Plan.

Three Reasons

First it fulfilled the biological and social requirements of a short life span. Second it was tradition, you were expected to act your age. Third it was the law, we created Government regulations and Institutional rules that prescribed the ages at which we should go to school, begin and end our work careers and when we could retire and receive a pension.

Our Assumptions

And lastly it was our own assumptions. Who
hasn’t said at one time or another, ” It’s too late for me to try that”
or ” If I could only have another chance to do it over again” or “If
only I were younger, I would…..”

No Deviation

In many ways we would judge ourselves by how successful we were at following the Linear Plan. We convinced ourselves that any deviation from the Plan would leave us poor, childless and socially ostracized.

The Cyclic Life Plan

Today we are seeing a dissolution of the traditional Linear Life Plan and in
its place a much more flexible arrangement, known as the Cyclic Life
Plan, is emerging. Due mainly to the increase in life expectancy, we are
starting to realize that not only will we live pass 50 and 60 but still
be vigorous, active, and independent into our 80s and even 90s.

It’s About Longevity

Because of this longevity, we are beginning to find ourselves cycling in and
out of several careers throughout our lives, each interspersed with
periods of rest, recreation, retraining and personal reflection. We are also seeing blatant age discrimination in the workplace. While some of
us will hit our career stride for the first time, long after it was
considered time to retire.Many of us will become discouraged, disheartened and made to feel like losers, because of the workplace attitudes, towards anybody over the age of fifty.

Rethink Retirement

Increasing life expectancy and better health are altering the very definitions of
“old age” and “retirement”. The increasing length of non-income earning
retirement can cause severe financial hardships. We are seeing more and
more older people, not only having to work in some fashion, but many who
prefer to work. They are shocked when they find, that not only are there no opportunities for them, but they are actually discriminated against.

Retirement can be a Problem

Growing numbers of people have begun to question,
not only when to retire, but whether retirement as it now exists even
makes sense. Many see retirement as an uncertainty or even a problem.
Something that will separate them form the kinds of productive lives
they are capable of living, well into their 70s and 80s. But because of rampant age discrimination, many begin to doubt themselves and begin to believe that they are not capable.

Second and Third Chances

The dead hand of tradition, the weight of regulations and our own expectations
are given way. We no longer feel forced, to do exactly what the
generation before us did. In a longer life there are second and third
chances. We have the opportunity, to go back and do some things we
weren’t able to do, for whatever reason, earlier in life. It starts with challenging the status quo, and having our voices heard.

So why are so many people choosing to stop working in their later years, even with the risk of outliving their money?

  1. They still live in the Linear Plan.
  2. They are tired of doing what they were doing and see no worthwhile alternative.
  3. They assume that it’s too late to start a whole new career.
  4. There is age discrimination, which although illegal, still makes the barriers
    to re-entering the work force, extremely difficult to overcome.
  5. Work schedules today are usually all or nothing, or they expect you to work third shift.
  6. Can only find work that is 100% commission or requires you to wear an apron, vest or a paper hat.

Workplace Is Changing

Luckily as our postindustrial economy matures into a more technological one,
more and more jobs will be based on connecting with people, utilizing
knowledge, experience and judgment. Increasingly with each new wave of
professional obsolescence, millions of men and women at varying stages
of life will begin the sometimes frustrating often times exhilarating
process of beginning entirely new careers. Age discrimination in the workplace will only get worse, as long as we accept it. We can force our Legislators to act, we can re-focus A.A.R.P. and we can boycott offending Companies.

Internet Marketing Can Take You There

It’s projected that that by 2020, seven percent of the work force will go
to work without leaving home. If a self employed lifestyle appeals to
you, were you can adjust your hours and working conditions to more
easily meet your needs, then learning on-line skills will be necessary. There are Companies that offer e-learning, training and expertise.     http://smarterfittness.com/affliate-marketing-for-seniors . You just need to treat it like a career and not a hobby.
