Years ago you gave up working at 65 and that was petty much it. Nowadays there is an entirely new concept of retirement. It is a new beginning that opens up a whole new age as you enter the third plateau of the lifespan. You may make of it what you will because you have choices. You can flounder through the rest of your life without goals and suffer the emptiness of achieving very little, or you can let someone else set your goals for you and live with the frustration of living the life someone else wants you to, or you can set your own retirement goals and experience the profound truth Browning expressed when he said, ‘Come and grow old with me, for the best is yet to be.’
The choice is yours.
The purpose of this book is to show you how to identify the keys to a successful retirement, how to set your own exclusive goals, and how to create a master plan for actualisation on the higher plane. There is no one way to enjoy retirement because we are all unique. Whatever the nature of your personal goals, and no matter how and when you wish to retire, you owe it to yourself to chart your own course with confidence and with your authentic self as a priority. The essence of your planning must be to capture the 'new retirement' archetype, which is about renewal transition, new beginnings, options and opportunities.
Throughout the text you will find a multitude of links to resources designed to help you get the best out of your third age years and for your added convenience many of these links are repeated by category in the Appendix.
