Best Weight Loss Diet

What Experts Say

Dr. Kate Craigen is the clinical director of binge eating and bariatric support services. Waltham, Mass. What many consider the three best weight loss diets sold today she had this to say.

Well Funded Marketing Campaigns

“Millions of Americans turn to these types of programs, drawn in by marketing campaigns built on the promise of positive change for those seeking to lose weight. “It’s easy!” some say. “I lost X pounds in 30 days!” They sell visions of a ‘new life’ where weight loss is guaranteed and accompanied by happiness, acceptance and vitality.

Most Weight Loss Programs Fail

In most cases, weight loss programs fail to result in actual weight loss: Here’s the sobering reality: diets lead to weight loss in only a small fraction of people. Genes and metabolism play a significant role in the way your body gains and loses weight. Programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig or Nutria-System may not work like they promise to, even if you’re following all the rules. The sheer disappointment and devastation of trying so hard – without the desired results – can invoke feelings of depression and low self-esteem.

Fails to Keep the Weight Off

In fact, programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutria- System not only fail to result in sustained weight loss for most people, they can make you more prone to binge eat. And it has nothing to do with your commitment to the program”.

It’s Not Cheap

Lets not forget that these diets are also expensive.

  • The basic program for Weight Watchers is $11.70/week
  • The basic program for Nutria-System is $72.46/week
  • The basic program for Jenny Craig is $82.55/week

Yesterdays Fad

Those of you old enough remember the diet pill craze  Fen-Phen, This was the cocktail form of two separate drugs , Fenfluramine and Phentermine, which were separately approved by the FDA for short term treatment of Obesity.

Taking Chances

The combination was never approved  because of unknown side effects. But that didn’t stop Doctors from writing 18 million prescriptions for Phen-Fen in 1996, and 2.4 million more for the similar drug Redux, before reports of dangerous side effects led to the “voluntary” withdrawal at the FDA’s insistence.

Not Ethical

Not all the people taking Fen-Phen were clinically obese or even close, which is one of the reasons they were seeking medical advise at the mini-mall, instead at their usual Doctors office.

A Dangerous Diet

I only bring this up because we’re seeing a similar fad taking place today, and it’s why you should never try the HCG Diet Plan. The Diet has been called dangerous, fraudulent and illegal by the FDA.

HCG is a Fertility Drug

As a prescription medication HCG is used mainly to treat fertility issues. HCG is not approved for over the counter use, nor has it been proved to work for weight loss. Often called the HCG 500 Calorie Diet, it’s easy to see how the HCG diet results in weight loss, but according to experts simply cutting calories to lose weight will almost certainly backfire.

500 Calories a Day

The diet consists of taking shots of 125 units of HCG six out of seven days for eight weeks (costing from( $200 to $600 each) and only eating two 250 calorie meals a day. No exercise, no oil and only one tablespoon of milk every 24 hours.

A Placebo

When it first came out in the 1970’s the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proved the HCG diet was (and still is) ineffectual. A second study done in 1990 by the South African Medical Journal showed HCG no more effective then a placebo.

Starving The Body

Going to 500 calories a day results primarily in weight loss to muscle rather then fat.This sets the body up for a slowed metabolic rate and weight gain. Since the diet is only temporary, you gain everything back and then some.

How Many Times Have You Lost the Same Ten Pounds

Everyone agrees that yo-yo dieting is a terrible thing, and those that have done it would be hard pressed to disagree. Whether or not it’s physiologically more difficult to lose the same 10 pounds for the fifth or sixth time, it is certainly harder on the head.

New Research

Doctors are now discovering the important role our Endocannabinoid System plays in fine tuning our physiological functions. It promotes homeostasis, affecting everything from sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood and even reproduction.

Improves Metabolism

Basically the Endocannabinoid System helps modulate the regulation of homeostasis across all major body systems, ensuring all systems work in concert with one another.

All Natural Ingredients

Our Weight-Loss Coffee’s, all natural, proprietary blend of ingredients, formulated with natural appetite suppressants, feel good ingredients, detox components and powered by a patented antioxidant, improves the ability of our neural receptors to better metabolize calories, promote brain health and crush cravings.

Costs the Same as Starbucks

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 instead of going to Starbucks,  give our coffee a try, what have you got to lose? https://www.ValentusMovie.com/dbcrist

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?

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.

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.

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.

Why The Linear Life Plan Is Disappearing

Introductory content.

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.

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. 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…..”

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.

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. Some of
us will hit our career stride for the first time, long after it was
considered time to retire.

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.

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.

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.

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 toady are usually all or nothing, or they expect you to work third shift.
  6. Can only find work that is too physically challenging or not intellectually challenging.

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.

WA Can Take You There

It’s
projected that that by 2020, thirty 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 WA http://smarterfittness.com/affliate-marketing-for-seniors offers the training and expertise to get
you there. You just need to treat it like a career and not a hobby.

Why Diets Don’t Work

WHAT’S A DIET

Most of us think of Diet not as “the customary food and drink of a culture”, but in its more insidious form as “a temporary and highly restrictive program of eating in order to lose weight”.

Here are five reasons they don’t work.

  1. You regain the weight you lose. Studies have shown that 95% of people who lose weight by dieting will regain it in 1-5 years. Since dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan, it won’t work in the long run. Moreover, the deprivation of restrictive Diets may lead to a Diet-overeat or Diet-binge cycle. While on a Diet, because your body thinks your starving, it automatically slows your metabolism, which is another reason its so hard to lose the weight.
  2. Fad Diets can be harmful. They may lack essential nutrients, for example. Moreover they teach you nothing about healthy eating. Thus, when you’ve reached your desired weight you simply boomerang back to the unhealthy eating patterns that caused your weight gain in the first place. This is the beginning of “yo-yo dieting, which not only prematurely ages you, but can bring on other health problems.
  3. Overly restrictive diets can take the pleasure out of eating.
  4. Dieting, along with frequent and compulsive weighing that accompanies it, can lead to eating disorders. Studies show that people who diet are 8 times more likely to develop an eating disorder, or physiological issue related to food.
  5. And most importantly, new research is starting to uncover that our ability to process calories and control our hunger is at the mercy of a chemical process known as the “Cannabinoid System”.http://smarterfittness.com/obesity-in-america-new-research 

    INSTEAD OF DIETS

Instead of going on a restrictive diet that limits the foods we eat, we need to have a better understanding about how the Cannabinoid System works in our bodies, and how by blocking certain neural receptors we can increase our body’s metabolism more effectively burn the calories we intake. It’s about making our bodies more effective in digesting the foods we eat and reduce the false mental cravings.

A WEIGHT LOSS COFFEE

Valentus has done just that, with its development of a SlimROAST Optimum Coffee. A neuralgic system of several independently performing nutrients, working together to deliver this “stack” to the right places in the brain and throughout the circulatory system through its nitric oxide production.

Not only will you manage your weight with SlimROAST Optimum Coffee, but you will love the taste. The coffee is even more effective if mixed with our Prevail KETO Creamer, which promotes natural ketogenesis.

  • Weight Management Coffee with a Neurological Purpose
  • Helps shut off Cravings from the brain and the stomach
  • A logical and easy solution to intelligent weight management

These are some of the reasons why Valentus has grown to over 90 million in sales in 91 countries, in just four years. Visit the link below to order yours today.

Obesity in America; New Research

LEADING CAUSE OF PREVENTABLE DISEASES

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 70% of the $3.5 trillion America spends on healthcare goes toward preventable diseases. And the leading cause of preventable diseases is obesity, which has been associated with increased risk for Type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions, which in turn is the catalyst for everything that goes wrong. The CDC concludes that more than two-thirds of American adults, aged 20 and older, are simply too fat. Approximately one-third of Americans are a healthy weight, one-third are overweight, and one-third are obese.

PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE CAUSES OF OBESITY

The bottom line is that the big solution lies in getting people to understand why they are overweight and what causes obesity, it is not a matter of just over eating. One has to wonder if the root cause of the healthcare problem is just bad leadership. America seems to be simply agreeing to pay for healthcare for people who have made themselves sick.

HEALTHCARE IMPLICATIONS

If one-third of overweight Americans became fit, so that two-thirds were healthy, problem solved. Fixing obesity would nearly eradicate Type 2 diabetes. And fixing obesity would free up significantly more money than the current tax proposals would dredge out of American pockets. There is no single act of leadership that has bigger money implications than simply doubling the number of fit Americans.

Significantly reducing the percentage of obese Americans would save multiple times more taxpayer money than pulling all U.S. troops out of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

IT’S METABOLISM

Americans are confused and while experts tell us that obesity is a self-inflicted condition, new research is starting to uncover that out ability to restrict out calories and control out hunger is actually out of out control. That we are at the mercy of a chemical system that cunningly influences how much we eat.

THE CANNABINOID SYSTEM

The Cannabinoid System explains why some people have more problems with obesity than others. Cannabinoids are hormones made from Omega-6 fatty acids, primarily in the liver and kidney. Essentially Cannabinoids hinder the ability of insulin to push sugar into cells, so we don’t burn the sugar, we end up insulin resistant.

Cannabinoids do this by blocking a substance called Adiponectin, produced by fat cells, which normally allow muscle to use carbs and fats effectively. This explains why some people gain weight and others burn calories more readily. This also explains why some are often hungrier when they get fatter, since a brain that doesn’t have sugar pushed into it still senses hunger.

BASIS OF FOOD CRAVINGS

Experts are starting to realize that the biological basis for food cravings and binges is that out Cannabinoid System creates uncontrollable urges that drive people to foods with a bias for fats and sugars. Cannabinoids also stimulate the liver to make more fat, which causes out Triglyceride and LDL levels to become elevated, another risk factor for high blood pressure, Diabetes and Heart Disease and they stimulate the brain to increase food intake, which leads to abnormal obesity, which leads to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.

Cannabinoids also stimulate out system to store fat in the Omentum, a fat storing organ around the stomach. The Omentum also soaks up excess steroids released during stress and these steroids actually help the Omentum fat cells to bulk up even more.

WHY WE FEEL HUNGRY

Cannabinoids have some influence over the different signals that out brain gets to eat. Some come from the stomach but most come from hormonal regulators in the brain, that influence how other hormones work and how fast we feel hungry.

WHY VALENTUS COFFEE WORKS.

Cannabinoid receptor-blocking drugs have decreased weight more than twice as much as restricting calories alone, meaning that they actually increase your metabolism plus these receptor-blocking substances decrease the morbidities from obesity twice as much as could be expected from weight loss alone.

IT’S A LOGICAL SOLUTION

Valentus Coffee is a logical solution to a weight management program. Formulated with natural appetite suppressants, feel good ingredients, detox components and powered by VASO6 Tm, a patented Nitric Oxide, and an Antioxidant booster for optimum circulation and oxygen delivery.

Social Network Marketing: Now More Then Ever

TODAY THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF BUSINESS SYSTEMS

  1. Traditional Corporations; You Develop it yourself, some great examples are Sears, Toys R Us, K Mart, and JC Penney
  2. Franchises; Buy existing system, some great examples are McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Sport Clips, Great Clips
  3. Network Marketing; Buy into existing business, some examples are Herbalife, Amway, Avon, Mary Kay

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE

People acquire their beliefs from their experiences. If someone lives on a street where everyone works for a corporation, that person will believe that working for a corporation is the only option. If no one on that street does Network Marketing for a living, this person will probably believe that Network Marketing, can’t be a full-time income. No Experience No Belief.

YOU DO IT EVERY DAY

The biggest sale we have to make as Network Marketers is to convince prospects that they already do Network Marketing every day, they just don’t get paid for it. If everyone really believed this, how hard would it be to sign up prospects? It would be so easy. All you have to do is simply sell a prospect on changing their beliefs about Network Marketing. Once a prospect believes that they do Network Marketing every day, their next question is how do I collect from it? It’s all about changing the dis-empowering belief based on their experiences.

“The best way to predict the future, is to create it.” -Peter Drucker

MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER

Zig Ziglar, once asked his audience: ” Can you do something to make your life worse in the next three weeks?” The audience said, ” yes of course.” This was easy for them to visualize and accept. Then Zig said: ” Can you do something to make your life better in the next three weeks?” Ah! now the audience had to accept that they could.

YOU ARE IN CONTROL

This means that we are in control of our lives, we are not victims of circumstance, and we should stop blaming others for our current situations. When given an opportunity to do something to make our lives better, why do so many of us procrastinate?

STOP PROCRASTINATING

We need to ask ourselves the following questions.

  1. If I pass on the opportunity, will anything change?
  2. Am I happy with the status quo?
  3. Will the status quo change by itself?
  4. Can I continue to accept the status quo?

If you answered no to the four questions above then you’ve decided, all that’s left is to accept the opportunity. Before accepting that next brain-dead job or start ruining your car driving for Uber. Click on the link below and see how you can do something to make your life better.

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.

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. Some of us will hit our career stride for the first time, long after it was considered time to retire.

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 working after retirement in some fashion, but many who prefer to work.

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.

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.

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 toady are usually all or nothing, or they expect you to work third shift.
  6. Can only find work that is too physically challenging or not intellectually challenging.

 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.
