Have you ever thought about how many choices you make a day?
It is probably a lot more than what you realize. From the minute you wake up in the morning until you fall asleep, we are making choices about what to do, when to do it, and whether to do it alone or with someone. Of course, there are many other choices that surface as you make each decision. If you are approaching retirement, you may be overwhelmed by the number of choices that need to be made.
Not only does your life depend on the choices you make, you are fully responsible for your choices. That is why it is so important to be able to make choices that move you closer to fulfilling your dreams and goals.
So, how are you doing making choices that are right for you in your career and personal life?
If you are thinking about retiring, the number of choices you need to make has increased in the last ten years. One of the most important decisions pre-retirees face is how to make this next stage in life meaningful, joy-filled and financially secure. For many, that means finding ways to spend their time that is rewarding and profitable.
Because this is a new adult developmental stage in life that can last for 20 to 30 years, the transition to make your dream a reality can be bumpy. You are a pioneer creating what will work for you.
If you are struggling to make choices that turn out right for you, be sure you know your top:
- Strengths and how to use them to make better choices, and
- Values because they clarify what is most important to you in your life.
Knowing your most important strengths and values gives you the foundation you need to:
- Decide the level of change you want to make.
- Know where to focus your energy.
- Positively impact others and improve your relationships.
- Increase your confidence.
- Create a meaningful and rewarding life.
- Feel more energized to take action once you have made your choices.
- Break free of fear and destructive patterns that do not work.

"Retirement" as it use to be, officially is no longer. How are you going to make this new gift of time rewarding and exciting?
Think about how you would feel if you had the resources you need to create the life you desire. Confidence is easily built when you are using your strengths in areas of your life that are important to you.
