Vital Life Stories

For 36 years, I’ve been helping other people grow and develop and change the way they look at their life. I have seen many competitive programs that sound better than they work. So, when I experienced the Possibilities Explosion, I have to tell you, I was surprised at the results. It altered the way I look at how long I'll live, how healthy I'll be, my relationship with the people around me, my financial well being, everything changed.

I had just turned 65 when I first went through the Possibilities Explosion, and, up to that moment, I thought that I would do the same thing my grandfathers had done, my father had done, and that was to get to around age 65 and hang it up. I could already feel myself shutting down.

The explosion opened up my thinking; I recognized that I'm not going to retire at age 65, or 66, or 69, or whenever. I no longer have an established age for when I'm going to retire. Why? Because I recognize, I love what I do. I've been doing it for a long time. I have a group of friends and clients that I talk to on a biweekly basis, and I don't have to change that. Since my new thought is to continue to work, I'm going to continue to earn an income. I don't have to take social security or tap into my retirement program until a time that I have to. As a result of that, I have more discretionary income, which is pretty interesting.

I've gone through the Possibilities Explosion four times. Each time, I have access to a deeper and different understanding because I'm walking in with a new understanding of my possibilities. I’ve realized that if I continue to fund my retirement program, then my kids or my family get more money, but what's equally interesting is that if I continue to work, I don’t have to put the money aside. Instead, I will have the money to do things now with my children and my wife now that I would've otherwise had to put off. This has completely changed the way I look at my life and how long I'm going to live, and my plans on how to accomplish it.

I don't know if it's something you should do or shouldn't do, but I have to tell you, based on my experience, and I've been involved in a lot of programs over the years that made a lot of different claims, this is the real thing. You lose nothing in taking this alignment. What you gain is the potential to live a fuller, richer life the rest of your life, however long that turns out to be. How good is that?
