If you're over fifty it doesn't mean the end is near. Jim Donovan, author of Don't Let an Old Person Move Into Your Body, says he has heard people say, "Once you turn 50, it's all downhill from there...Better slow down because your best days are over...Retirement means boredom, poor health and pinching your pennies."
He claims getting old is a myth and asks, "If you didn't know when you were born, how old would you be?"
In his book you will learn:
• Why aging is a state of mind.
• How to avoid the trap of “being old.”
• How to identify and attract the dream life you've always wanted.
• How to prevent other people's negativity from destroying your dreams.
• How to eliminate “energy zappers” in your life.
• Why most of what we are told about illness and aging is wrong.
• How to avoid becoming a victim of age related illnesses.
• Practical steps you can take to achieve optimal health, at any age.
• How to create financial abundance and lasting security.
• Simple things you can do each day to help yourself feel better spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Here he is, in this short video clip, with a couple of ideas to get you started:
I worked alongside of an older gentleman when I was twenty years old. Ed was 76 and still going strong. Management at the company were urging him to retire. They claimed at his age, should he get hurt, the insurance policies we had wouldn't cover him. I asked him one day why he didn't retire. He could go home and put his feet, more or less. But he said his brother retired when he was 65, and sat in his rocking chair. A year later he was dead. Ed didn't want that to happen to him. He refused to get old. Quite frankly, even though I was over fifty years younger than him, I had a hard time keeping up to him.
Ed had motivation. What about you? Where is yours?
In the book, Don't Let an Old Person Move Into Your Body Mr. Donovan relates several examples of how you can be motivated. Forget about age for a moment. Other than age, is there something else holding you back from doing what you always wanted to do?
Mr. Donovan says:
A friend and client of mine had a dream to build a healing and counseling center. Looking at her business plan, I noticed a huge wall standing in her way. The plan called for almost a million dollars in start-up capital. When I asked her why she needed so much money she replied, “To buy the building.” I could easily see this was not essential. I asked her if and how she could begin right now with what she had, without the building. I saw a sparkle in her eyes as she realized that it was possible to begin her business right then and there, with the resources she had. Her original business plan is still intact, however, she is now moving in the direction of her dream.
His book delivers a message of hope and possibility to everyone he comes in contact with. Facing his own "demons" and overcoming impossible odds, he is able to see the potential in others even when they themselves cannot and his absolute refusal to accept limits, either in himself or others enables him to bring out the best in those who he encounters.
