Will You Have Retirement Bliss?
How Do You Define Retirement Bliss?
Retirement bliss is a vision. There are no right or wrong answers because it’s your personal vision. Before you can attain retirement bliss though you will first need to define it. This definition is different for everyone. Some people will just be happy to checkout of the rat race and stop working, period. Others are looking forward to starting the next phase of their life…traveling, spending more time with family and friends or learning new hobbies.
What’s Your Vision?
Achieving retirement bliss is all up to you. Do you have vision of retirement bliss? Do you know what you want to do during your retirement years? If not, start thinking, planning, creating, visualizing your retirement as soon as possible. Remember, no one cares about your retirement as much as you do. If you are not visualizing it, who is?
The best time to create this vision for your retirement years is during your working years. Why? Because then you will have more time to create the vision and prepare for its implementation. If you are too close to retirement you short-change yourself on planning time. The best time to determine and adjust the financial resources you will need once you retire is while you are still earning money during your working years. Why? Because you still have a stream of income.
Planning for retirement is a project. It takes time and personal effort. You deserve a blissful retirement but it will not happen automatically. You need to plan for it. You need to invest and save the money necessary. You need to create your personal vision of what a perfect retirement looks like for you…your family, friends, co-workers or neighbors cannot create your retirement.
