Last week I wrote, “Retirement is Suicide.” And that
At the same time, what I didn’t tell you is that retire-
ment is a big lie. And it’s a bigger lie today than when it
was originally hammered into most peoples’ subconscious.
Why? In part because people live longer today than they
did when the idea of retirement was sold.
Just for fun, let’s imagine that you want to live to be 80,
90 or 100. Laudable goals, no doubt.
Yet, if you “retire” at 60 or 65 – think how much dough
you’d need to have put away to live the way you are
living right now for another 20 or 30 years.
A lot, I think.
At the same time, why not consider the possibility of living
a grand lifestyle NOW – not when you retire. In fact, what if
you were so thoroughly engrossed in doing what you love to
do that the thought of retirement never even crossed your
mind? And as a result the money never stopped flowing your
Retiring from ONE career so that you can begin again – that’s
okay. But even so I wouldn’t call it retirement. I prefer to
call it “changing gears.”
Years ago I stopped competing in the sport of swimming.
Later still I stopped competing in wrestling, then martial arts.

But if you think you’re going to be able to do all those things you
love to do when you “retire” – THINK again.
You’ll either die far earlier than normal because you retired. Or you’ll
waste away physically and mentally from lack of stimulation and use.
The key to living a GREAT LIFE is to stay involved, to be active – and
most importantly, to DO what you say you LOVE to do.
Perhaps you have the idea that you cannot make a fortune doing what
you love to do. If you have this idea, I would say that you’ve been sold
on two very treacherous lies.
The first, retirement is good.
The second, financial security comes from doing what you’d rather
not do instead of what you love.
I have made a fortune doing what I love to do – and I can teach you to
do likewise. But only if you’ll open your mind and listen.
This coming October you’ll have plenty of time to listen and learn when
you attend my Zero Resistance Internet Marketing Seminar.
