Can you imagine if you had everything you want, needed nothing? I know of a 70 year old man who is looking to buy a business. I asked him why and he said “I have enough money to retire but I need something to do. I volunteer 2 hours a day and exercise an hour a day. Then what do I do?” Interesting. What happened to looking forward to retirement?
No matter what, you are always striving for something. This is not a bad thing. It gets you up in the morning to aim for something.
If you are having challenges in life (at work or in your business) and are thinking that they will all disappear when you retire think again. The types of challenges change but they do not disappear completely.
What you can change in your life is your attitude and your outlook. If you have an attitude of gratitude and a positive outlook to everything around you suddenly things change in your life. In reality things have not changed; only the way you look at them has changed. As my late colleague Dr. Wayne Dyer would say, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!”
Life is not perfect and it will never be perfect. However do not knock lack of perfection in your life because SPARK is in the imperfection!
