Episode 40 Living a Life of Abundance After Retirement

For many people, retirement is the promised land. The time in their life where they can finally put their feet up, relax, and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

But it doesn’t always play out that way.

Once the retirement party is over and everyone goes home, you may find yourself depressed, lonely, and wondering what to do next.

You’ve spent the last 40 years or so working on your craft, building relationships, and creating value for people that your identity is completely tied up in what you do.

What happens when you stop?

Aimlessness. Drifting. Uncertainty.

There’s a reason retiring early is linked to dying earlier.

As Dan Sullivan puts it, “Saying you’re retired is like telling the universe that you’re ready to give the parts back.”

But retirement doesn’t have to be the winter of your life.

Instead, it is your opportunity to reinvent yourself and live out the second half of your life with purpose.
