Where Do You Go from Here?
By Tony Mase

In response to my recent article "Are You Missing Something?", I received a question from one of my customers that went that went something like this (I've edited out the personal details):

"Your answer to the "want to win the lottery" question was truly disheartening."

"As a 71 year old widow there is no way for me to get employment let alone get into some sort of business."

"My only hope of a better life in my old age is to work towards manifesting a lottery win."

"Now, apparently there is no hope of this either."

"Where do I go from here?"

Good question. :-)

Interestingly enough...

I received several very similarly worded questions, *all* of which began with or included something like...

"I'm 40-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

"I'm 50-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

"I'm 60-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

Like this one...

"I'm 70-something and I can't __________"...

In other words...

They all included a statement of their age, followed by what they *couldn't* do as a result of it, and that their only "hope" for a better life was "manifesting (there's that word again :-)) a lottery win".

So...

Where should these good folks go from here?

Well...

For starters...

I'd *highly* recommend they stop talking about age...

Specifically...

*Their* age...

Really!

In his book "The Personal Power Course", Wallace D. Wattles, best known for his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", wrote:

"Is it worth while to achieve health, wealth, and ability if, when we reach the age of forty five or fifty years, we are to begin to lose it all - to begin to go down hill, grow slower of step, dimmer of vision, steadily weaker in mind and body until we are reduced to absolute helplessness and dependence? If we go the common way of the world, just as we become most effective we shall begin to become ineffective; just as we gain what we want, we shall begin to lose it all. If one is to be counted "old" and "a has been," a "back number" at fifty, life is hardly worth while."

How true! :-)

Now...

I don't know where it comes from...

Maybe it's a throwback to our childhood, when we were tossed such gems of wisdom as "now that you're eight, you can't __________ anymore" or "act your age"...

But...

In my opinion...

"Age" and what you can or can't do at a certain age, is a mental concept more than it's anything else.

And...

Like any mental concept...

It can be changed!

How, you ask?

Simple...

Let me share with you how I did it.

A number of years ago...

To no end of the amusement of people who know me...

I decided I wasn't going to have age anymore...

In other words...

I became "ageless"!

Really...

I'm not kidding you. :-)

I don't talk about age...

I don't think about age...

I don't celebrate birthdays...

I just *am*!

If you were to ask my own son how "old" his daddy is, he'd tell you his daddy doesn't have age, he's "ageless".

Now...

Once "age" is off the table...

Your possibilities are endless, aren't they?

Who says *you* can't get employment?

I knew a lady who took an early retirement at age 62, after the company she worked for was bought out.

Bored out of her mind and not real happy that, on her pension, she couldn't do all the "shopping" she used to be able to do ("shopping" was her absolute favorite pastime :- )), after a few months she went to work for another company retiring again at age 83 with another pension.

Where's it written that *you* can't start your own business?

If Ray Kroc could start McDonald's at age 52...

If Harland Sanders could start Kentucky Fried Chicken at age 66...

You can certainly start a part-time, home-based business to supplement your pension and live a "better life".

Don't have the "skills" you say?

Odds are you have far more "skills" than you give yourself credit for...

And...

Those you don't have are easily developed.

The bottom line key is this...

Remove the "mental block" that says...

"I'm 40-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

"I'm 50-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

"I'm 60-something and I can't __________"...

Or...

"I'm 70-something and I can't __________"...

And...

A whole new universe of endless possibilities will reveal itself to you!
