Where are you going?
In the words of Steven Covey, begin with the end in mind. I mean your literal end. I have 2 questions for you all today:
- Where are you going with your life
- how long do you plan living
The point of life is to live it, making memories through great experiences, growing and contributing along the way. When I first started planning for retirement 15 years ago, average life expectancy was 88 for women and retirement age was 65 so that meant I had 20 good years of retirement to enjoy life, have adventure and really live. The last 3 wouldn’t be that great, so I had better build in extra money for full time care as I would out live my husband and wouldn’t be well enough to be independent.
Is that living? No, that is living to die!
I only have 2 goals for today:
1.To get you thinking about your age goal, how long you plan on living. 2. To give you some resources for planning your direction and destination
None of us are getting out of here alive, so I challenge you to take a hard look at where you want to go literally in destination and in years. If you don’t know how long your going to live, how are you going to ask for directions on how to get there?
For many people, the goal was to work for 30 years and retire and then start living the good life off the pension they earned. This is living to DIE, this is NOT living to LIVE! Now people are saying they must work until they die because pensions are gone and they didn’t save enough. Again, living to die. What is your purpose? What is your unique gift to share with the world? I promise you it is not to work until you die. There is so much more to this life than working and making just enough to get by. You are so much more than the job you do. You have a great gift that is your contribution to the world. To move you down the path of getting clear on your destination. I have a question for you. What do you really, REALLY want? If you had all the money and resources you needed, where would you be and what would you be doing?
We all have a higher calling, our contribution to the planet. What is yours? It is more than the job we work at, the people we live with or the family we were born into. What is the unique gift that you have to share with the world? How do you have to grow to be able to contribute? If you are going to make a mighty difference in the world, how long do you have to live to do it? Do you have to make better food and exercise choices? You can’t change your life in 1 day, but you can change your direction in an instant by deciding.
This brings me to my 2nd goal, resources. I have a couple resources to leave with you today to help you along your journey.
One is the roadmap to reinvention which is basically a coach in a box. If you
- ARE YOU CURRENTLY IN THE WORKFORCE AND THINKING OF CHANGING CAREERS?
- ARE YOU IN THE MILITARY AND LOOKING TO REENTER THE CIVILIAN WORKFORCE?
- ARE YOU AT RETIREMENT AGE AND WONDERING WHAT YOU WILL DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

A second resource is a retreat. If you are not even sure what to do next and just want to completely transform your life a transformational retreat where you can focus on you and dive deep into transforming yourself in a balanced way.
A third resource is a seminar. If you can’t get away for a week long retreat, a day long seminar is great to get you started. Remodel your habits seminar on 10/13/18 in Port Huron.
If you or someone you know can use any of these resources or you have more questions, please contact me at email@example.com or on Facebook @MariaWebbConsulting.
My 2 goals for today were to get you thinking with the your end in mind and to give you resources to help you on your journey. My wish for you is that you live such a full life, pouring out your purpose so fully that you die empty.
